Combat Jacks #2 is the ongoing story of space marines, horrific pumpkin-like creatures and what happens when the two meet on the surface of an alien world.
Combat Jacks #2 picks up right where #1 left off, thought this time we will be introduced to a whole new cast of characters, including an all-new squad leader who may be instantly recognizable by many fans out there. Cynthia Rothrock, the martial arts and action movie star, has signed on to lead First Squad to engage the enemy in an action-packed thriller modeled after classic sci-fi and horror movies and comics.
The comic, which has successfully launched a first issue and a subsequent director's cut, will be the second installment of a four-part mini-series that I hope to complete within the next year. The plan, in the end, is to have the four comics collected into a juicy 120-page trade paperback that will be published by IDW after the completion of the individual comics.
With the goal of $6,000, I will use the money to bring back my Combat Jacks #1.1: Director's Cut creative team and create a full-colored, 32-page comic that will be printed and distributed much like Combat Jacks #1. As a 29-year veteran comic book artist, I am thrilled to bring you this project and I can say, with certainty, that if you're a fan of comics, the sci-fi genre or old monster movies -- or if you're a fan of the work I've been fortunate enough to help bring you in over 500 comic books for Marvel, DC, Dark Horse and more -- then this project is for you.
You support is invaluable to me, and I hope that our backers are looking forward to the exciting ride that is ahead of us with Combat Jacks #2 and beyond. I appreciate each and every one of you, and your support in helping me realize this dream.
I have over 50 rewards so far, just about something for every pledger. If you don't see it and you want it, let me know and I will see if I can get it for you!

Risks and challenges
Please note that the funds raised to create Combat Jacks #2 all comes from you, the potential Kickstarter pledgers. The funds will pay for the art, coloring and lettering as well as any production costs and of course, the printing. So far what I have is the covers, the script and layouts. My proposed deadline is to ship this book in July. The first book was printed overseas and I ran into problems with the process like I never have before. Let's hope this time it's smooth sailing!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
