A GALACTIC KING. A PRINCESS. A DRAGON. AN APPRENTICE. A RONIN... THE WORLD OF THE POWER KNIGHTS RETURNS!
Hi guys, welcome to my kickstarter! To those who are returning, welcome back! My name is Keithan Jones, the founder of KID comics and creator of The Power Knights!
The goal of the previous Kickstarter was to fund and launch issues 1 & 2 to an expanded readership beyond my home base. Now I'm ready to take an even larger step in that same spirit with, you guessed it, THE POWER KNIGHTS: UNBOUNDED 3!
I'm on my 3rd issue as a completely independent writer / artist and publisher. Although it's been my passion, it has indeed been quite challenging and without your help, I would have never made it this far. Let's continue to work together to realize the ultimate goal of making, The Power Knights and KID comics, a super success in the world of independent comics. Thanks so much guys!
Metal Star, Bluzara, Dragon Blaze, Camouflage, Princess Raxi and Warseed are highly skilled warriors from different planets bound together to wage war for the maleficent, King Sinoj. Under a wicked spell, they enforced Sinoj's monarchy across the galaxy with brut force. Eventually, they were freed from the spell and fought back the rule of the King. However still charged with the atrocities they committed, they were sentenced to death by being sent into a blackhole. Mysteriously, they cheat death and wake up to new lives on Earth. An oath is taken to not interfere with mankind. Warseed however, scoffs at kowtowing to the weaker human race. He desires to take control of his own destiny by transforming humans into a powerful hybrid army of his own to command. This decision forces the other Knights to come out of the shadows to stop Warseed. Two brothers, Kandle and Davion Watson find themselves caught in the middle of this intergalactic power struggle brought to Earth! The story continues in issue 3, as The Knights do battle against Warseed's newly formed army for the first time!
Teenage Kandle Watson only wants to save his brother Davion from self-destruction but finds himself at a crossroads as he learns to become a defender of justice and an egis of Earth against the tyrannical, Warseed.
To the general public, Warseed is known as Marcus Krain, a CEO of an innovative medical facility that promises to change the world for the better. It is believed his Merge program will cure all manner of diseases once approved by the FDA. In actuality, it is a clandestine operation to build his hybrid army out of human specimens.
Joining my creative team for The Power Knights is writer extraordinaire, C.R. Ward (Vegas Baby & The Stronger) as we work together to forge the PK story into one of the best science fiction action drama's ever made. Below is a preview of our creative teamwork. A short-story focusing on US Alpha Agent, Octa-gun as he trains to take on extraterrestrial threats using technology that was reengineered from the spaceship the Power Knights originally arrived on Earth in. Enjoy!
Here is a page showing how writer C.R. Ward and I work. To the right is Ward's original draft of the script for me to follow as a guide to composing the page. I'll give him the general plot of the story and he'll flesh it out in script form. Then I'll interpret what he wrote in a visual language that works best for impact and not just an outright literal transfer of what he wrote. Note how I made minor edits and consolidated parts of his script into one panel. This is true comic book art and not just storyboarding a script. After the art is completed, Ward will do a final script to match the panels.
The standard size with a print copy of PK3 is 11x17. But it really shines at 22x34, which will be shipped in a protective tube. Put that on your wall!
The KID logo shirts were a big hit in the last kickstarter campaign and they're being offered again! I highly recommend that you choose a reward that includes one to help KID comics become the successful company it inspires to be and of course you'll look spectacular in one!
We at KID have teamed up with Game Maker, Damien Forte to put together a new cutting edge, "Dimension" board game called, Comic Crisis! A not so traditional board game utilizing 3D playing stages that allow you play in the KID comics universe as The Power Knights and other fantastic characters like Mutant Fury! Although it's still under development, here's your chance to get in on the action before it starts, by owning a collectors playing card which comes with the print version of PK3.
Risks and challenges
The only real risk is the event of an alien invasion! I've heard the odds are fairly minuscule of that happening so let's get this funded so I can bring you guys the ultimate award, The Power Knights 3!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
