About

Captain Imani and the Cosmic Chase: The Complete Edition

£3,108

140

Captain Imani and the Cosmic Chase is an 90-page, full-colour erotic comic originally published digitally by Slipshine Studio in 2018. 

Designed to be read like the ‘behind the scenes’ of an old sci-fi serial, Captain Imani and the Cosmic Chase follows the sexy adventures of Captain Shihab Imani, a much-beloved, highly decorated starship captain whose efforts to capture his arch nemesis, the roguish smuggler Silo “Lazerboots” Haze, have consumed much of his career. With the help of his alien lieutenant, Via Auriga, Imani pursues Silo across the galaxy - but theirs is a strange, obsessive chase, motivated as much by frustrated desire and longing as it is justice.  

Cosmic Chase was written by Lin Darrow and drawn by Alex Assan (that's me!), the creative duo also responsible for the ongoing webcomic Shaderunners, published by Hiveworks Comics.

The Rewards

In the interest of keeping this project simple and straightforward, this Kickstarter campaign has three backer levels to choose from:

  • Martian Pirate / £15 : a softcover copy of Captain Imani and the Cosmic Chase!
  • Neptunian Diplomat / £20 : both the book and the postcard set!

There aren't any stretch goal planned - the focus of this campaign is to print the book, and any extra funds received would go towards printing more copies! Which brings us to...

The Budget

As you can see in the extremely fancy pie chart below, the majority of funds will go towards printing the books. The rest of the budget will go towards shipping, fees and emergency/unpredicted expenses.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I read Captain Imani and the Cosmic Chase anywhere online?

You can read Cosmic Chase online by purchasing a subscription to Slipshine Studio! Slipshine publishes a lot of quality erotica, so I highly recommend checking it out. 

I'm a minor, can I read this comic?

Nope, sorry! You must be over the age of 18 to purchase this book.

How much of the book is devoted to sex scenes/sexual content?

About 70%, give or take. It's a sexy comic!

Are there going to be any more books/chapters/installments in this series?

It's highly unlikely. Captain Imani and the Cosmic Chase is a complete story, specifically planned to be printed as a single graphic novel.

So wait, Captain Imani gets with both Via and Silo? Is this a polyamorous romance?

Pretty much, yeah! They are both his lovers.

Risks and challenges

This is my first Kickstarter, but I have printed books myself in the past, and I have designed this project to be as straightforward as possible. Print quotes have already been confirmed by my printer. Unexpected delays are always a possibility, but I will keep everyone informed to the best of my ability through project updates.
