As shows like Getaway have no doubt told you, Melbourne has it all: world class sporting events, funky hidden laneways, and a subterranean army of bio-mechanical creatures haunting the city's train lines. Honestly, it's no wonder house prices are getting so ridiculous. 

Depressed ticket inspector Shane Digby isn't much for sport and he can't seem to find the hidden laneways, but he's seen the eldritch terrors lurking in the city loop first hand and will do whatever he can to stop them.  Even if it means losing his humanity. 

Metcop Wonderland is the world's first and only comic series about ticket inspectors and, just quietly, we think you'll rather enjoy it. Produced by an all-Australian crew of independent writers and artists, Metcops brings together supernatural action sequences, frothy conspiracy theories, and more biscuit references than you can poke an iced vovo at. It's also the home of a disturbingly attractive grey alien who calls himself Ambassador X. He looks a little like Bowie. Don't say you haven't been warned. 

Metcop Wonderland is also home to Alan Cooper: PTV's employee of the month seven time running and, in his words the 'thinking woman's Bruce Willis'

Authorised Officers is our second trade paperback, collecting issues 5 - 8 of the series, and this, our fine friends, is your chance to own it first! 

Whether you've never read a copy of Metcops in your life, or have every single issue on display in your secret dungeon under the house, there should be something in this Kickstarter to appeal to you. So, have a gander at the rewards tiers and don't hesitate to reach out if you'd like to learn more. 

May your mykis remain ever validated, 

Katie, Mel and Alan. 

Risks and challenges

This project is ready to go: all of the content has been finalised and we're getting very excited at the prospect of sending it off to the printer. As with any indie comics venture, the only remaining obstacle is funding, which is where this campaign comes in!

    Director's commentary edition

    Frankly speaking, this is one for the die hards. It's also pretty damned special. Every time a trade paperback is produced, a proof copy containing extra-wide margins is printed to check that everything's hunky dory. To mark the publication of Authorised Officers, Katie, Mel and Alan have annotated this proof with detailed behind the scenes notes on the production of Metcop Wonderland. There is only ONE of these in existence.

    Includes:
    • The ONLY copy of the Authorised Officers liner notes.
    • 1 x copy of a Metcops trade paperback (your choice which)
    • 2 x limited edition enamel pins (Ambassador X and Alan)
