ABOUT 

Stroper is a retro sci-fi comic series set within the Galactic Union. 

In the far future, mankind's golden age of space exploration has ended. 

The Galactic Union, a corrupt, united political body rules over the civilized systems. The Union's bloated bureaucracy and deep corruption puts enormous weight on the spacefaring working class, making it nearly impossible to survive or thrive doing honest work.

The illegal hunting and selling of alien wildlife is in extremely high demand. Organs are sold to black market doctors. Trophies to rich politicians. It's a dangerous game but a lucrative business. 

This is known as Stroping

Pak Booker, a Stroper imprisoned in the Bo'ak 5 prison mines, seeks revenge on the people that locked him away. However, his story is not as straightforward as it appears, and his journey for redemption has only just begun.

THE GOAL

With your help, the goal is to kick start the series. Issue #1 being the first step on this intergalactic adventure.

The $200 earth dollars will fund the website. With this I can build a home base for the Stroper series.

Additional earnings will go towards expanding the site and creating more material for you to enjoy! The world building process takes time and with your help I can create that time.

ABOUT THE CREATOR

My name is Eddie Porter and for the past 10 years I have been working as a visual effects artist in the movie industry. Working on so many wonderful films has spawned the desire for me to pursue my own stories. Some of the films I have worked on include Marvel's Doctor Strange, Spiderman : Homecoming, Thor Ragnarok and Ridley Scott's Alien Covenant.

My hope is to use kickstarter as a platform to get my stories out there. With your help they can leap from my sketchbook to your monitor!

A FRESH STYLE

Breaking away from the traditional comic book paneling, The Stroper series uses a formatting similar to storyboards used in feature films. With a consistent frame it draws the reader in and unfolds the story with a cinematic feel.
