About this project
Added to any and "all variant" tiers ED MCGUINESS!!!
We did it! We made our first goal of 10k and 100+ backers! Let's all push together to reach that next big goal of 20k! There's still plenty of time to collect each and every one of your favorite artists variant covers! Not to mention, get in on the ground floor of Nakio's and Sake's newest adventure!!!
Welcome to the official Ninja Boy kickstarter! First off let me thank all of you for taking the time to visit our campaign and give it a chance to gain your support! Ninja Boy has been the brainchild of myself, Alé Garza, and Allen Warner for close to 18 years now! We released the initial series way back in 2001 through Wildstorm/DC Comics. A Ninja tale that combined our love for fantasy, hip-hop, and comedy, with a strong hint of high octane action! Allen and I had been creating tales for as long as we could remember, all the way back to elementary school, and Ninja Boy would become our first foray into a professional publication. The initial release neared 60 thousand copies so we know there are a lot of fans out there waiting, just chomping to experience the next chapter of Nakio, and Sake, and this is your chance to help make that happen!
As you may have heard creating comics is a labor of love that costs a fair amount of money to produce. Your backings will help provide both production, and printing costs. We have, quite possibly the strongest stable of variant cover artists in the history of comics to come out and support Ninja Boy issue one. YOU, our supporters will play a part in making sure that we can publish and print all of these for all of yours enjoyment!!! A total of 13 covers featuring the fantastic talents of Humberto Ramos, David Nakiyama, Kenneth Rocafort, Kaare Andrews, Siya Oum, Joe Benitez, Tyler Kirkham, Andy Park, Skottie Young, and Mark Brooks! We also have two others in the works, including one by a comics legend, and a sexy "Ninja Girl" cosplay variant featuring a jam piece by myself and Elias Chatzoudis! It's a tall order to make all of these covers materialize, but I believe in all of you to make sure it all happens! You just gotta own all of these comic books!!!
Digital rewards will pour down from the get go! A PDF of the original series "Faded Dreams" comes to you on the first tier of backing! Also as you go you'll be showered with the best digital downloads featuring all of the variant cover, cover artists artwork!
Prints! Prints! Prints! Collect all of them, be a print master!
So what else is in store for you?! Aside from owning all of those cool comics, downloads?! Well... We are rolling out only the coolest merchandise for all of you! From stickers, and coasters, to dope shirts featuring the killer artwork of Kaare Andrews, to stylish snap back hats! Also handmade, plushes of everyone's favorite little drunk furball, Sake! Collectible pins of Nakio, and Sake, featuring the artwork of comicdom titan, Skottie Young! Pint glasses etched with savage artwork by Myself, and ninja swords, yes! Ninja swords re marked with artwork by me, series co-creator, Alé Garza! Excited yet? Well, not only is all of that available to you, but you will also have the opportunity to own an original piece of art from the first issue! Not only that but you will have the opportunity to own the original cover art to issue one, by me! In fact you have the opportunity to own all of the cover art I produce for the entire series! As an added bonus the original artwork to issue one by Joe Benitez and myself will also be available to one of you lucky backers! As an added bonus I will be offering 25 original art sketch covers to some of you lucky patrons!
Like your comics graded??? We also have tiers for all of the variants to be graded by CBCS and be offered to you at a 9.6 grade or better! Pretty cool eh?:)
How about being an ultimate fan??? How about being an actual player in the story? That's right you can be featured into the story!!! We will create a character based off of you, and you will be introduced into the Ninja Boy universe!
So, what is Ninja Boy, and where do we pick up in volume 2? Trained by the Mugen ninja clan, young Nakio dreams of becoming something more – until he fails in his first mission. Now, he must overcome Mantis Gods, Spider Queens, and black magic to find those who will battle by his side…that is, if master assassins Zensho and Raishu don't catch him first! Well, Ninja Boy Volume one, ended in a very dramatic fashion... For all of you who were diehard fans back then, you may have assumed that our heroes Nakio, and Sake were hunted down, and left for dead... However, appearances can be deceiving! So we catch up with both Nakio, and Sake some time later, knee deep in a plan to exact revenge on those who killed all of their family and friends! Imagine Kill Bill meets Never Ending Story meets Star Wars;) We promise to deliver the next chapter in Ninja Boys journey in a timely fashion! You're going to see this adventure on a monthly basis, so I really don't want to give away too much!
Thank you, thank you so much from my family, from Allen's family, to all of you! We are grateful to have this chance to bring our creative endeavor to all of you! Your support, and pledges mean more than you could ever know. For just a couple boys from a small town named American Canyon, bringing Ninja Boy back, to you, all of the fans, and fans to be, this is a dream come true! We promise to make sure that you receive only the highest quality product that we can produce! So thank you, and let's get this show on the road! Ninja Boy 2, Life After Death!!!
Ninja Boy 2 is written by Allen Warner, with artwork by Alé Garza, and Luis Guerrero.
All comics, and prints featuring artwork by Ale Garza will be autographed!
