Metal Made Flesh is a cyberpunk space opera that has been likened to "Bladerunner meets Game of Thrones."

Chased to the brink of extinction, Humanity is forced to take refuge in Tuaoni, a sprawling city on the black market trading hub Equan Yas. Reduced to extreme poverty, and treated as second class citizens by the planet’s inhabitants, humans must fight to survive.  

The series centres on three main characters, the cold, merciless cyborg Izobel Vice who loses more of her humanity with each passing upgrade; the psychopathic assassin Phaeon Nex, and Kalibos, a hideous mutant war machine. Book One was released in 2014, and subsequent books 2 and 3 have been Kickstarted in 2015 and 2016.

Metal Made Flesh features artwork and stories from series creator Simeon Aston, and writer Jeremy Biggs. along with writers and artists from Marvel and 2000AD (see below for a full list of contributors).

Risks and challenges

We're a dab hand at Kickstarter now, and since we started we've learned a lot, including having good control over our printing sources, learning how to make tweaks to improve quality, allowing time for any delays in printing, and having backups in case a printer is unable to fulfill on time.

We'll be notifying you at all stages of the Kickstarter how progress is coming along, including an insight into the writing process and showing work in progress pics of the artwork.

We're confident we can deliver on time and to the high quality our backers demand!
