About this project

$350

Dino Force's origins are quite simple. The writers and editors involved all have a love for tokusatsu television and film, superheroes and an urge to create their own take on the classic concept that have fueled sixty years of entertainment since the premiere of the original Gojira™ in 1954.

Writer / editor Nicholas Ahlhelm has combined his own unit of talented writers to bring Super Kaiju Battle Squadron Dino Force to life! Aided and abetted by Don Gates (Challenger Storm), T. Mike McCurley (the Jericho Sims series) and Travis Hiltz (Horror Heroes, Tales of the Shadowmen), a new world of martial arts heroics and giant robot dinosaurs springs to life. Each author takes one corner of the world and introduces a young defender to protect their corner of the Earth from invasion by the deadly threat of the Saurids. A prologue and epilogue introduces the fifth member of the team, the time-lost young man that will rise to become the leader of the Dino Force! 

Over the course of the four tales, prologue and epilogue collected within, readers will learn of the history of the Earth's protectors and learn how each came to possess their great powers and giant fighting robots! All wrapped up with the kind of action you expect from your favorite tokusatsu series, from Ultramanto the internationally beloved Super Sentai™/Power Rangers™ franchise.

The stories are complete and ready for editing, but this Kickstarter will help fund the costs for proofreading, cover art and design. We have only a short window to make this book come to life, so please join us in making Dino Force a reality! 

Breakdown

We all appreciate knowing where the money will be going when we back a Kickstarter project. Here's the 411 on how and where your funds will go if you back the Dino Force Kickstarter!

 Stretch Goals

We will announce more stretch goals as the time gets closer for the project, but the big one is this: all the great writers involved with the project will start earning their commission on every dollar over the $350 goal. That means nearly 50% of every dollar over $350 goes straight in the pockets of our authors. And who doesn't want to see their favorite writers find success? 

Risks and challenges

The main challenge is covering production costs for the book. Without your support, this will great delay our planned schedule for release of Dino Force.
