Star-Bastard is an all out action space romp featuring flawed characters readers love to hate. Our dysfunctional crew follow their invulnerable walking hormone of a captain, stumbling through encounters with galactic empires, monsters and talking fart clouds in a search for clues to Greeves forgotten past. Along the way people laugh, people cry, people swear and people bleed ... A LOT. 

There's even a ships cat! Whats not to love?

The Standard Cover of Issue 1
The Standard Cover of Issue 1

We meet the crew of the Ghost-Huffer - Greeves, Max and Molly on the run from the Flagship of the Morgite empire after a business deal gone bad. After Greeves seduces the Morgite Emperors daughter, all bets are off and laser batteries are set to kill. A few dozen dead bodies later, and our heroes are on the hunt for a shadowy figure from Greeves past, to help him remember who the hell he is, all the while dogged by lizard mercenaries, vengeful fiancés and nasty hangovers.

Someones gonna pay, and its gonna hurt. BAD.

"Who the hell are you, and why should I give you my money?"

Star-Bastard is written by me, and although this is my first foray into the world of comics, the rest of our team is very experienced. Artwork is by the uber talented Jethro Morales (Green Hornet, Vampirella/Army of Darkness) with colours by the mysterious Teo Gonzalez (Exec Assistant:Iris/Assassins) and lettering by the all knowing HDE Smith (Salvagers, Judas Breed). 

We launched the book back in April, and after peddling it at various conventions, the initial run of 250 copies sold out. This campaign is to help with a second printing and raise funds for issue 2.
