What is Bastion's 7?

I’ve managed to dodge that question like a ninja throughout the creative process. It was tough not to spill the beans along the way, but I've always had a grand vision for Bastion's 7 and wanted it to grow and breathe and develop organically with the help of my teammates over the past few years. Now I'm proud to say, the day has come to finally reveal the world of Bastion's 7!

B7 is a very special project for me because it's a reflection of some of my personal life experiences as well as a mash-up of cartoons and comics I devoured as a kid: Bionic Six, Gatchaman, and Star Wars, for example. It also incorporates my daydreams  about being a Kung Fu Master when I grew up. I'm thrilled to say B7 is finally here, and I am very excited to share it with you.

What's the story?!

Bastion’s 7 is a sci-fi/fantasy/superhero epic that takes place on Earth - however, not the Earth you know. It is a parallel Earth, one that has been ripped apart by a strange force and is crumbling away into space bit by bit. The laws of gravity are defied during this event and have caused large land masses to float into the sky. Destruction is everywhere and for many, hope seems lost...

One man, Dr. Thaddeus Bastion, has vowed to do everything in his scientific power to restore order to the chaos and pull the Earth back together again using Tong-e, his curious chemical concoction that he invented and could be the answer to the world’s woes. Standing in his way are genetically enhanced monstrosities created by his evil nemesis Moquay, a mysterious and menacing villain who is capitalizing on the weakened state of humanity.

With so much worry and danger awaiting you at every turn in this world...  you can’t even enjoy a plate of dumplings in peace! For Dr. Bastion, that was the last straw! 

To maintain order, protect the weak, battle the bad guys and help rebuild society (not to mention defend the dumplings!), Bastion creates the organization known as Bastion's 7! They are the superheroes of this world, the marshals of this wild west, the army in this war against evil...

In the midst of the mayhem is Kai.

A boy who wants to be a hero himself, in search of a family, in search of his destiny... in search of the right page to reference from his handy martial arts manual, "How to Punch People in the Face Properly (and Beat Up Bad Guys)."

(There you have it! Be sure to get your dumplings from Ama's, and tell her I sent ya!)

Moquay and his Ruffians 

They are not only evil and mean, but they also love dumplings!

Defenders of dumplings and more!

  • 3 Additional B7 stories 


Additional Story 1: 

Gumshoes 4 Hire/B7 crossover- Issue 2 of 5

Synopsis:

In the second part of a five-part adventure, the Gumshoes find themselves stranded… well, actually, they find their van hanging off the edge of a cliff (talk about your cliffhanger).  And they’re not in their hometown anymore.  Nope.  They’re in the strange, new-to-them B7 World of awesomeness.  And the first thing James thinks is: “Cool! This place razzes my berries!”  So, naturally, while waiting for Professor Bastion to fix their ride, our heroes can’t wait to do a little exploring. With Kai as their tour guide, our heroes, James, Jennifer, Ryan and Miggy, plan to play tourist, see the sights, and take a few photos.  It’ll be just like a vacation, right?  Wrong!  Moquay and his Ruffians have other plans for them.Yes, once again, the Gumshoes are in a sticky situation.  Danger lurks around every twisted corner. The question is: will our heroes ever see home again?  We don't even know what's in store for the G4H gang!

Stretch Goals!



Risks and challenges

Our risks and challenges are basically everyday life. We are full-time artists, juggling a few projects to keep a roof over our loved ones. This is what drives us and we love it. Making our deadlines is something we strive for and the "all-nighter"'s comes in handy as our Hail Mary! The other challenges that may arise are shipment schedules that come with dealing with our vendors. We will do our best to make sure things go smoothly as possible. These risks and challenges aren't something new to us, but a very familiar, close friend of our distant cousin's favorite tap dancing instructor's milkman. We are confident to push through adversity and deliver a product that we are proud of and you are, too!
