StarBastard follows the exploits of the galaxy's most obnoxious Space-Captain and his long suffering crew as they search the cosmos for clues to his past.

Issue 2 picks up right where the first issue left off. The crew of the Ghost Huffer meet with their mysterious contact on Axion-5 to sell the materials stolen from the Morgite empire. Before they can celebrate, all hell breaks loose!

Alongside the 24 pages of story, issue 2 will also feature bonus process pages from script to panel and a cover gallery.

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

Star-Bastard is currently my only comic credit, but 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 self published StarBastard issue 1 back in April, followed by a Kickstarter campaign for a second print run which was 300% funded.

Like last time, we are offering all kinds of cool rewards for you to pick up. Higher perks feature original artwork from Jethro, such as original Star-Bastard art pages and original commissions.

STRETCH GOALS ADDED!

Once we hit our stretch goals, all backers ordering physical perks (Actual Bastard Tier and up) will unlock special bonus rewards! The first is an awesome mini print by EDWIN HUANG (Skullkickers/Street Fighter)

 

 Pre-Sketched blanks

As a bonus, we are now offering some blank variants of issue 1 pre-sketched by industry talents!

We've also added a couple of rewards that we got a lot of requests for last time. These include skype time to help with writing your own projects and one perk that gets you drawn into the pages of issue 2!

"Where does my money go?"

In case you're wondering how we arrive at the campaigns target amount, heres a little pie chart (everyone loves a good piechart!) to help explain. As you can see, most of the money goes towards paying our creative team, with the rest going on KS fees, aswell as printing and shipping your rewards. Pencils/Inks are almost complete, so this campaign is to help toward the remaining pages, as well as Colours, lettering and printing. 

"Stretch goals?"


If we hit our funding goals, additional perk targets will be unlocked, including further variant covers and merchandise. Any funds raised over the cost of KS fees, manufacturing and shipping will go straight into the cost of producing the third issue.

In the meantime, please do take a minute to check out our Facebook page, and share this campaign!

Risks and challenges

We successfully funded and shipped issue 1 on kickstarter, and learnt a lot from the process. With issue 2, we are offering a few more options, but the creative team, and all suppliers remain the same.

As such, there should be very little risk that you wont get what you pledge for on time and in perfect condition!
