Combat Jacks #3 is the ongoing story of two squads of ISF space marines, horrific pumpkin-like creatures and what happens when the two meet on the surface of an alien world.    

Combat Jacks #3 continues the story right where #2, known as Combat Jacks: Return to Earth, left off. The space marines are in the thick of battle and fighting for their lives against an overwhelming force of angry Jacks. Back on Earth, in the past, Jacks have invaded a rural farm and are hunting down the farmers who live and work there.

Continuing in the story is martial arts and action movie star Cynthia Rothrock, who leads First Squad, and Dorthy Darling, known as DAD to her marines, as the hard-nose sarge in charge of Second Squad. 

The third installment was inked and co-written by me, co-written by Sam Eggleston with pencils by Jason Baroody, colors by Blair Smith, letters by John Hunt and editing by Kim Eggleston.

Combat Jacks is a campy horror and sci-fi comic that is modeled after the classic movies of the same genre.  Previously, the comic has successfully launched a first issue and a subsequent director's cut as well as Combat Jacks #2. This new installment is the third 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 #2 creative team and create a full-colored, 32-page comic that will be printed and distributed much like Combat Jacks #1 and #2. As a 30-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 our backers are looking forward to the exciting ride that is ahead of us with Combat Jacks #3 and beyond. I appreciate each and every one of you, and your support in helping me realize this dream.

REWARDS

Risks and challenges

Please note that the funds raised to create Combat Jacks #3 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. Delays do happen in this industry, but I will make sure my backers are always up to date on what is happening as we work to meet our deadline.
