The Rockabilly Plump Corps are a crack team of secret agents who defend the world from crime and all-around bad dudes. Set on muscle beach in Venice CA, the Rockabilly Plump Corps face a group of aggressive bodybuilders lead by Dr Swole.  The confrontation intensifies as The Corps reveal Swole's dirty little secret. An epic fight ensues and the clash escalates out of control!

If you love eating, fighting, working out, not working out, chunky characters and...... robots..then this is the book for you!!  

My name is Peter Yong and I am a freelance artist who has had 12 years experience in the animation and video game industries. Before going out on my own I worked for studios Disney Toon, Pandemic and THQ Bluetongue. As a freelance artist I have worked on many animated advertisements and a few tv shows as a character designer and storyboard artist. 

I have been a comic fan forever! I was influenced by many comics growing up from 2000AD and Spiderman to Mangas like Akira, Battle Angel Alita and Ghost in the Shell. It has always been my dream to make a comic and now I have finally done it! 

I just need help with the printing costs and I would like to make this available to people overseas. Essentially I am making this to gauge interest and have a place were people can order the book. 

Another reason for running this small Kickstarter to also become familiar with the whole process. In the future I would love to run a Kickstarter to assist me with the actual production of a book. 

Risks and challenges

With the comic already completed the risks are minimal. Being in Australia I realise shipping is an issue but I am confident that I will be able to deliver the books efficiently.

I have printed three art books and a graphic novel so I have been through the process of producing a book, which gives me a great deal of confidence also.
