DOCTOR MUSCLES (a graphic novel)

$2,615

56

DOCTOR MUSCLES is a 450 page graphic novel collecting the entire 15 issue run of the sci-fi action adventure series. If you've already read DOCTOR MUSCLES: Volume One and Two, this omnibus will include Volume Three: 5 brand new issues (150 pages). We'll also be printing DOCTOR MUSCLES: Volume Three on its own.

The money raised will be used to pay for book printing. 

…but what is DOCTOR MUSCLES all about, you ask?

The smartest man in Philadelphia, Dr. Arthur E. Muscles, is about to retire from a life of science when things go awry. A fortuitously modified formula at his research laboratory transports Dr. Muscles to another dimension, known as Quargo. Dr. Muscles now finds himself the lab rat in a maze full of perverted wizards, enslaved species, beastly giants and western motifs. His only chance at returning to Earth is to reach the Ultra-Lord at the end of the treacherous maze. Along the way, Dr. Muscles picks up various misfits and does his best to do the right thing, which usually ends up backfiring.

The DOCTOR MUSCLES series began in 2011 with a 24 page black and white floppy. Since then we've really upped our game and started releasing volumes collecting 5 issues at a time. With indie comix you can never be certain when the next issue is coming out. We realized this pretty early on and decided to give readers more bang for their buck. 

ACTUAL PANELS FROM DOCTOR MUSCLES
ACTUAL PANELS FROM DOCTOR MUSCLES

With the artwork for DOCTOR MUSCLES, Robert and I opted for a unique approach. Each issue is illustrated by a different artist, so as Doctor Muscles battles his way through each level of the maze in an alternate dimension the art changes- providing a different feel for each level. The artwork in DOCTOR MUSCLES is nothing short of KILLER! You can read the entire first issue for FREE right now at: http://www.bogusbooks.com/doctor-muscles-journal-one

ok, Doctor Muscles sounds pretty rad- but what's in it for ME, you ask?

THIS JUST IN… WE'VE ADDED SOME BRAND NEW REWARDS:::

This is what reviewers had to say about DOCTOR MUSCLES:

"a really well written, surprisingly engrossing, completely insane story... straight up, unadulterated, entertainment" -herospy.com

"crap in your pants insanity that is the perfect antidote for dreary thinking and too tight shoes"     -comicsbulletin.com

"one part Heavy Metal, one part Doc Samson and all parts, "Damn!" ...beyond entertaining"        -comicbastards.com

Risks and challenges

The only challenge here is accepting the DOCTOR MUSCLES saga coming to an end. This is the second Kickstarter I've run and similar to the last campaign, I do not foresee any reason why rewards would not go out on time- satisfying all backers.
