About this project
UPDATES! REACH GOALS! NEW REWARD TIERS!
I've added a modest Reach Goal of $8,350. If we get there, everyone at the $17 level and above (basically, everyone already getting an envelope full of goodies sent to them) will get one of these rad new Floating Head stickers.
Additionally, I have added several new reward levels for original, commissioned artwork. You can select them individually or just add it onto any other reward tier. I've already completed this 12"x18" drawing based on a wicked cool "Daniel Boone in Space" request from backer Lunaro, and a few more are on the way:
Thanks so much for your support in getting this book funded! Take a look at the "Updates" section for more information about the stickers and commissioned drawings. Here's the regular project information:
Hello Kickstarter! my name is Matt Rebholz, I'm an artist from Austin, TX.
Last summer you helped send me to an amazing artists residency at the Vermont Studio Center where I worked on The Astronomer, the second chapter of my ongoing graphic novel of the same name. Now I'm here to ask for your help again in producing the third chapter of the series, entitled OURS IS A HUNGRY GOD!
In The Astronomer, we learned that the Wasteland was once home to a lost civilization of Yeti, an ancient and powerful race who bred humans to be slaves and sacrifices to their pantheon of deities. Ours Is A Hungry God! introduces us to the mutant barbarian Enoch, prophet of the Yeti Blood-God Votan. We will see Enoch negotiate a disorienting landscape of vision and prophecy as he and his disciple Barouk travel the Wasteland, seeking both converts and human sacrifices to satisfy their Cosmic Overlord.
Here is a link to a 9-page preview of Ours Is A Hungry God! so you can get a sense for what it will be like. You can also view Floating Head Bounty Killers, the first chapter of The Astronomer (almost) in its entirety here.
In exchange for your help, I’m offering a number of great rewards, including all three chapters of The Astronomer, including: Floating Head Bounty Killers, The Astronomer, and of course the latest chapter, Ours Is A Hungry God! There will be digital downloads included in every reward tier where you get at least one physical comic, cool new t-shirts featuring Mighty Votan, original hand drawn pages, handpulled etchings, and just like last time, every single reward tier gets a postcard with a unique handmade drawing on the back.
Keep your eyes peeled for information about reach goals that will be posted in the coming days!
Thank you so much for looking & thanks in advance for your support!
Risks and challenges
The only substantial risk is production time. Those of you who backed The Astronomer know that it took me longer to get the comics out than I had originally anticipated. Based on what I learned last time, I have tried to give myself a reasonable cushion of time to get the products out, but should Ours Is A Hungry God! take longer than I've estimated, I will communicate with you and let everyone know what the problem is and when you can expect to receive your rewards.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Chapter I: Floating Head Bounty Killers is 44 pages
Chapter II: The Astronomer is 56 pages
Chapter III: Ours Is A Hungry God! will be something like 70-80+ pages
They are all softcover, 7.75"x11" and Chapters II & III (and probably Chapter I) will be perfect bound.
