Welcome to the Kickstarter for the first issue of the A.A.I.Wars! The first issue to the four issue mini-series~

Who are you? Glad you asked. My name is Jason Flowers. I'm a freelancing comic/sketch card artist. I've illustrated comic work for Arcana Comics and sketch cards on numerous sets for Topps and Upperdeck Cards including-Star Wars, Mars Attacks, and several Marvel Sets~.

What is the A.A.I. Wars?The year is 2058 or so we believe. After downloading what appeared to be a signal of alien radio waves, we were ambushed. The waves were encoded with a viral alien DNA that Trojan horsed all of our technology. Now we spend our days fighting a war to destroy this Artificial Alien Intelligence. A war we call...A.A.I. WARS  

Where did this idea come from? While working on art, sometimes I'll watch Youtube videos of people playing video games. One night I decided to look up one of my favorite NES video games growing up, CONTRA. It was after watching this game again (followed by watching the several sequels) that I was inspired and amazed by how crazy this game series really was and had wondered why no one had attempted to create a comic from it. So I decided to incorporate things from some of my other favorite games and movies like Metroid, Aliens, Terminator, and the biggest influence, Starship Troopers, and squish them all together into this silly and crazy comic idea.

What can we expect? Over-the-top craziness streaming from humans and robots fighting half alien/half machine creatures trying to take over planet earth.

What does the money pay for? 10% of the goal will go to paying for Amazon and Kickstarter Fees, but the rest of the $1,000 goal is strictly to get the book printed and out to the masses. Any additional money will be used for stretch goals, shipping costs, and possibly helping get me to some conventions to spread the word on the book.

Risks and challenges

Just like any project you hope for the best, but sometimes there may be slip ups that no matter how hard you plan for still manage to occur. Like Printing/Shipping delays.

The best part about this book though, is the first issue is already complete!!! All 20 pages of the first issue are completely
written/penciled/inked/colored/lettered

Issue two is already underway and will not be kickstarted until that issue is complete~
