-Not only do you get the 120 page TPB but we've also included the 2019 Smyths annual with most pledge amounts. Filled with 23 pages of heart stopping action by Valery Ike Bayu Aji and the debut of the most anticipated Smyths character yet "The Feline". This virigin cover Kickstarter exclusive comic is one you won't want to miss.
-Over 20 pages of bonus Pin Ups, Covers, Variants, concept art and much more. This is really a book celebrating the first year of the Smyth's. We've put everything awesome we can into this book and with your help we can finally bring it all together.
The series is a blend of familiar sci-fi and cartoon mythology, reimagined in a new way for adults. It explores the more humorous side of being an antagonist, like dealing with your family and trying to lie low so you can watch tv, only to constantly be hunted by your former employer and everyone else looking to collect a bounty. If your into high octane action and witty humour The Nefarious Smyths is one book you won't want to miss. With its adult humour, knuckle whitening situations and family spirit this book not like anything else currently on the market.
How about some sample pages so you can see what we're saying:
Like the pages? Meet the team!
Doing the Artist duties for issues one and two, we have the mega talented Dennis Tirona (Ferryman). Dennis is also doing the exclusive variant as well as lots of pieces in the back of this trade. Following in his very big shoes is another super talented individual, Gilberto Ferrel. He is doing the cover for the trade, as well as the art for issue three and four. Edgar Tavitas brings the whole world to life with beautiful colours. Alf Collins is the man in charge of putting letters and bubbles on the page, while Shelby Dixon combs over it all to make sure we haven't made any mistakes. And lastly myself (Dug) steers this crazy ship and tells our tale.
But wait! Didn't you say there are two artists? What does Gilberto Ferrel's art look like?
Glad you asked:
By now we're sure you get the point. Gilberto's art is awesome!!
What are we trying to do?
Most of the pages have been completed, we are just wrapping up number four. What we want to do now is collect all four issues together with a bunch of great bonus artwork and some new never before seen pages. The book itself is going to be 120 pages including the first four issues, collected together for the first time. It's a perfect opportunity to thank our fans with the proper quality collected edition they deserve, and a good excuse to come up with a ton of Smyths exclusives for you to get your hands on.
One of the exclusives we are offering is The virgin cover Smyths 2019 Annual! The Annual features a cover and interior art by new comer Valery Ike Bayu Aji. Colours by Edgar Tavitas, and lettered as always by the only letterist we trust, Alf Collins. It's an original story that introduces a new character to the Smyths universe, "The Feline" .
Some other pieces up for grabs this kickstarter include:
Risks and challenges
We are really only seeking funds to print the comic, the book itself is over 80% complete. The first three issues are complete with issue 4 well on its way. All the bonus art is complete. We plan to have issue 4 complete around the time this kickstarter ends so we can go directly from this campaign to the printers, and from there on to all of you fine people. We take completing this job very seriously. For our entire crew, this book is a massive dream come true.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
