DREXLER Issue #1

Hey guys, my name is Nathan Kelly and this is my FIRST Kickstarter campaign! I'm an artist from Canada, but I grew up in California and now reside in Charlotte, NC with my wife and two daughters. My first published comicbook was a 40 page graphic novel called SNARL originally published in 2015 with ALTERNA COMICS but is now available with INSANE COMICS. This year WITH YOUR HELP I intend to release and print my next comic series: DREXLER

DREXLER is a Sci-Fi tale that follows Erron Drexler, a soldier of fortune, returning to his small town roots to investigate a string of monstrous slayings despite being considered a monster himself (by his childhood community) for events that transpired in his youth. Events that he has been running from ever since...

Not to mention running afoul of a major arms dealer in search of a doomsday weapon and a score to settle...

The driving concept behind Drexler is a mashup of the two books that have influenced me most as a creator: Mike Mignola's HellBoy and Eduardo Risso's work on 100Bullets (and everything else he's ever done)!!

My goal was to construct a story that, sort of, blended elements from each book together, but with a Sci-Fi twist. I had written and drawn almost half an issue before Bob Salley joined the adventure. With his expert help we revamped the story a bit and he's been writing a fantastic script! Plus, with the immeasurable efforts from Don Mathias (our colorist), and HdE (our letterer), we are bringing this book to life and are excited to share it with our supporters!

Risks and challenges

The biggest hurdle as an independent creator is juggling the time needed to devote to this project with everyday life and responsibilities!

But at the moment over half of this book is completed. The script is written and I'm cranking out the pages as fast as I can. I feel confident that we will be able to deliver the book as scheduled (hopefully sooner)!
