 THE CHARACTER

Delilah is a 16 year old scientist and adventurer. She is the daughter of an alien named Mi and a human named Roger Blast. Once she has her mind set on something there's nothing that you can do to stop her. 

THE STORY:

Science runs the world and the Earth is governed by the E.S.A., the Earth's Science Association. Everyone is allow to join the organization on their sixteenth birthday, but unfortunately for Delilah Blast she oversleeps, missing the entrance exams and putting her dream in jeopardy. However, when another opportunity to achieve her dream presents itself, Delilah is more than willing and ready to take it, even if it means going to a dangerous alien planet to retrieve obscure technology that could change the world and Earth forever.
  • DELILAH'S CREW
    Tikki   

    Tikki is genetically altered alien creature that Delilah's father rescued from a lab he shutdown. He decided to give the creature to protect her. Delilah and Tikki became amazing friends. 

James Jackson-Ramirez aka Jimbo
 Jimbo is Delilah's best friend since they were 5, when Jimbo's family moved into Blast Tower. He's an eccentric engineer that can build anything you ask
                                                         

Prometheus

 Prometheus is Jimbo's newest creation, he was built to be Jimbo's version of Tikki. 

 My Motivation For Creating The Character

I came up with Delilah Blast in 2010 after listening to a Do Something by Britney Spears and Science by System Of A Down. Once the idea was sparked I spent a lot of time to develop the character because I felt like at the time there was a huge lack of strong female characters, that depended mainly on their wits. After I mapped out the story I wanted to make it all ages because at the time there weren't many all ages comics besides Tiny Titans and Billy Batson and Power of Shazaam.

I met Joel on Digital Webbing, he agreed with my feelings. The 2 of us talked to spent time crafting a world that has elements of steampunk, 50's scifi and post apocalyptic genres. 

 

REVIEWS

We let a few sites get an advance copy to review. Here is what they had to say:

"This awesome new comic draws you in with a little bit of mystery and hooks you with the delightfully spunky main character. She bunks the rules and owns her smarts with no apologies as she takes charge in this intriguing, futuristic world."  Bess Goden of Steampunk Parliament 

"Delilah Blast is a fun, look at life where science is key to the future of the planet. With Delilah really showing the reader she cares for what she’s trying to do." Kevin Hamilton of Geekery Magazine

"The world created and introduced to the reader in the early section of the book is vibrant and fascinating. Looking like a mash-up of high fantasy, science-fiction and steampunk it begs to be looked at in detail." Jay Brown of Comic Sleuth

" This is the future of science fiction, action/adventure and fantasy comics all rolled up into one book.  Exciting, fresh and incredibly well done from top to bottom, start to finish this is going to remind you why you love comic books!" Reading With A Flight Ring

"The character seem to  leap off the page and into your imagination as people you just meet  full of  personality in  all the right  and appealing ways." Rob Andersin of Creators Of Written Sins

INCENTIVE REWARDS

Boston Metaphysical Society and  Delilah Blast #1 are collaborating on a cross-over pin-up!  With art by Joel Cotejar and colors by Marco Pagnotta, I’m sure you’ll agree that it is absolutely delightful.

 

For those of you not familiar with Boston Metaphysical Society The story is about an ex-Pinkerton detective, a spirit photographer, and a genius scientist who battle supernatural forces in late 1800’s Boston. Think “Steampunk X-Files.”

Heres the pinup

 

Here’s the deal:

You must pledge $22 or above to the Boston Metaphysical Kickstarter AND $20 or above to the Delilah Blast #1 Kickstarter in order to get this wonderful print (8 1/2 x 11 inch print on 10 pt. cardstock gloss on 10 pt. cardstock). Don’t worry we will keep track of our respective backers.

Deadline: You must have pledged to both campaigns by Friday, March 3 before 11:00 a.m. (PST) as that is when the Boston Metaphysical campaign ends.

Transgenesis #1 and Delilah Blast #1 are collaborating on a cross-over pin-up!  With pencils by Joel Cotejar inks by Jay Sloan and ???

 For those of you not famaliar with Transgenesis its about Shemar Nolan, also known as Broadsword, as he is forced to take over his brother’s role as leader of an Omni group known as The Brethren. During the evacuation in Charlemagne, he and his brother Claymore were separated. Barricaded inside their new headquarters with no way out, Broadsword must strategize a way to put an end to the gruesome slaughter taking place outside and find his brother before he becomes a victim like so many others. To do that, Broadsword and our remaining Omnis, villains, and civilians must work together to discover the source of the Horde. Can they find out who or what has caused all of this madness and stop it before it destroys their entire world? And how can they do that while trapped inside their headquarters?  


Here is the pin-up

You must pledge $10 or above to the Transgenesis Comic #1 Kickstarter AND $10 or above to the Delilah Blast #1 Kickstarter in order to get this wonderful print (8 1/2 x 11 inch print on 10 pt. cardstock gloss on 10 pt. cardstock). Don’t worry we will keep track of our respective backers

The $2,150.00 we're asking for is going towards paying for the initial print run of the books, prints, and art cards as well as shipping costs. About 8% of that goes toward Kickstarter fees and processing fees. Misc will cover various costs like replacing lost or damaged books.
