It’s tough having a mundane job. It’s even tougher when you have the least important job on a spaceship traveling through the cosmos.

Launched on the 30th of March 2016, Ship Wrecked is the story of the Intergalactic Spaceship Bowie‘s Accounting Department. The comic follows our diverse team of misfits (Aloe, Bobsjvul, Trey, Gar-E, Bertilak, Oscar, and Sunayana) as they attempt to get through their work day without going mad. They’re not involved with any of the cool stuff happening on the ship but they still have a job to do and they’re going to find a way to do it before boredom takes their will to carry on.

At least, that's the pitch.

The story has evolved over the three volumes released so far. Some of our characters have found love, others changed their jobs, some even turned out to be the bad guy. You can catch up and read all of it right now for free at ShipWreckedComic.com and tapas.io/series/Ship-Wrecked to see what I mean.

... Ok, did you enjoy that? Yeah, us too. That's why we'd like to make more. But we need your help to do so.

We want to make Volume 4, which means 24 new pages of comic! Filled with love, jealousy, silliness, and drama. Volume 2's art team of Katie Fleming and Rebecca Nalty return along with Aaron Fever and Zakk Saam who have been the writers and letterers of the comic since the beginning.

Not only that, we have planned a special Mini-Anthology (tentatively entitled Personal Logs) featuring 12 pages of short stories from previous Ship Wrecked artists Triona Farrell, Iuli Niculescu, David Cooper, and new to the Ship Wrecked universe George Kambadais! This will feature 4 page tales focusing on some character backstories, before they became crew on the ISS Bowie.

Being a patron of the arts not enough for you? Don't worry, I get it. Here is some of the sweet swag you can pick up by contributing to our Kickstarter:

If funded, Volume 4 will get released as normal via our usual websites but special print versions will be designed by our long term collaborator Dearbhla Kelly and made available. The Mini-Anthology won't get put up on our websites though and will only be available through this Kickstarter and as printed copies.

All of our rewards will ship by February 2020 and Volume 4 pages will go online at the same time. Your rewards may even be ready to go before then, but we are stating a February '20 deadline because it gives us enough leeway in-case some unforeseen catastrophe happens, we would still have enough time to fix it and continue apace to reach that deadline without too many heart-attacks. This is Volume FOUR so we have experience making this comic and are confident in hitting our goals.

If you're thinking "Hey, why does it cost that much?", we're pretty transparant about costs. That total is 90% to pay our art team, letterer, and designer. 10% goes to Kickstarter.

The costs of backer reward fulfilment have been calculated and we (Aaron, the writer) have those costs already covered so we don't want to put them on you the reader. In an ideal world we wouldn't have to make this Kickstarter at all, so if we can save you having to help with anything, we made sure we did.

If you have any queries or suggestions, please leave a comment! You might have a great idea we can implement for all our backers or even point out a detail we forgot to inform you about that would be helpful for everyone.

Thanks for reading, and hopefully thanks for making Volume 4!

Risks and challenges

We are a comic creative team that have worked together for 4 years now and have a plethora of experience making comic books. We have built a safe timeline for reaching our February 2020 deadline for full backer fulfilment. In the unlikely event of encountering difficulty that we haven't experienced before which would delay things in any way, we will be very vocal and upfront with all backers and will find a solution.
