It's here. Volume 2 of the Pussycats saga.
This TP is solicited in the March 2018 PREVIEWS catalog, and is being supported with full-page color advertising.

In a continuation of events that stem from the chaos of the first volume, the Pussycats Mother Superior, Nurse Nancy, Cowgirl Cathy, Schoolgirl Suzie, and Powerhouse Pam are running from a rogue government that wants them exterminated.
Collecting the two-issue series "Sex, Drugs, & The Impossible," which introduces villains like The Globalist Initiative and Mr. Sun, this TP also collects "The End of Everything" zombie apocalypse series that introduces future Pussycats legacies Viper and Foxglove, and includes 2 unpublished pages that introduce a new character featured in the 2019 series! EXTRAS include downloadable music and video.
We are trying to offset our printing costs. These Kickstarters are essential to reducing our production costs, and as a result of the savings we are continually able to hire professional models for our covers, stay on schedule for production, and develop new merchandise which--as of this campaign--has now resulted in rewards that are EXCLUSIVE to Kickstarter!
For those who are new to the Pussycats universe, we are making available all previous single issues in their first printings...
...as well as the grindcore noise/opera audio comic that inspired "The End of Everything" series.
...and the EXTREMELY rare promotional lithograph and ashcans from the launch of the first series, which were signed by adult film stars Tanya Tate and Karen Summer!
But as of this campaign we are also now PROUD to offer the following rewards which are for the first time EXCLUSIVE to our Kickstarter fans!
Here is the first licensed image we're releasing on an 8.5" x 11" print for our OFFICIAL Schoolgirl Suzie model, Sarah Richelle! This was the photo that won her the the gig for being our cover model in 2019!
We're also publishing an exclusive Pussycats 2018 Ashcan in both .pdf and print formats containing never-before-published sketch images which include 2 new characters that are appearing in our 2019 series!

Our interior artist, Ivica Sretenovic, will now also custom illustrate inked drawings of you and your favorite Pussycats character. Drawings are also available in XXX nude editions!
Additionally, we're releasing a "neon glow" poster set exclusive to Kickstarter...
...and we're wrapping it up with an exclusive computer wallpaper package that features Nurse Nancy, Powerhouse Pam, and Mother Superior!
Pussycats launched to critical acclaim in 2015 after famous adult film stars Karen Summer and Tanya Tate (pictured in videos below) appeared as themselves in the #0 issue. Both stars later signed promotional merchandise for the series when it shipped internationally to the direct comic market, and entered into Diamond Comic Distributors "Top 50 Small Press Comics" chart.
The comic quickly gathered a large female following as the book's main characters were tough women that kicked ass first and asked questions later. The Pussycats were Charlie's Angels on steroids in a big budget Quentin Tarantino film.
After the first series had been released, web sites were editorializing on how the series was a sound investment for the back issue market.
Slabbed books were increasingly showing up on the back issue market.
Following in the footsteps of Playboy Playmate Kristy Ann (Powerhouse Pam), Playboy Playmate Elle Johnson joined the Pussycats cover girl roster to become the model for "Viper" in the 2018 series The End of Everything.
Leading retailers outside of the U.S. have now begun featuring Pussycats in online advertising for their websites.
A comic book industry veteran since 1996, Pussycats creator/writer Vince Brusio is widely recognized as the Editor of PREVIEWSworld.com, where he writes about monthly interviews he conducts with comic book writers and artists. He’s also known for interviewing famous comic book professionals on video at Baltimore, New York, and San Diego Comic Cons.
Personalities he has interviewed include New York Times award-winning novelist and TV icon Brad Meltzer....
...Eisner Award-Winning comic book writer Brian Michael Bendis....
...and The Walking Dead creator/writer Robert Kirkman.
In 2012 Vince Brusio formed E-Comix with the purpose of publishing comic books that would give him complete creative control. Prior to Pussycats, E-Comix released Dying Fetus: Supreme Violence, which was bundled as a licensed comic book and T-Shirt for Relapse Records' notorious death metal band, Dying Fetus.
Late in 2014, E-Comix produced Feast for a Funeral for the pioneering death metal band Autopsy. The comic, out of print within months of its release, is now available digitally through Comixology. The cover for the book was licensed as a T-shirt line for JSR Merchandising, and Warner Bros. licensed the T-Shirt as wardrobe apparel for the Season 4 premier episode of Showtime's Shameless TV show starring William H. Macy.
Risks and challenges
If a printer screws up the print run, yeah. There can be a delay. It happens. But we cover it. We just did, as a matter of fact, and you can look to see that it only took us a week to get back on track. We are professionals. We pride ourselves on shipping on time. That's what we do, and we're PROUD OF IT. Cheers.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
