Humalien - An action/scifi comic

$5,951

THE BASICS:

Humalien is a futuristic tale about the only (sorta) human on the planet. He has been cloned from the DNA of a human and an alien race. This combination has provided the Trinity a living weapon-the first of many! Freed by a team of rebels, our hero, Ed, is is now devoted to reclaiming the planet from the Trinity with laser guns and spontaneous combustion!

Humalien is a super-awesome throwback to the cartoons of the '80s with a crazy ensemble of characters. It's the type of comic I would have loved to read as a kid and is a great for ALL AGES.

A 24-page full-color first issue is just the beginning. If we can get this crazy little adventure funded, the sky is the limit.

I currently have 12 pages complete with 12 pages left to go.  I will be able to complete the book and the art for the rewards for a May 2015 release.

Here are some artwork samples from the comic's development

Risks and challenges

Kickstarter will give me a chance to publish and expose Humalien to a wider audience! Consider this your investment of a project that will be completed one way or another. Your support here on Kickstarter guarantees that Humalien gets completed sooner rather than later.

The risks for this project are very low. I have plenty of time to finish the remaining pages in time for a Q2 2015 release. Obviously, illness or something happening to a family member may cause a delay in the project's completion, but aside from getting struck down by the plague or lightning, the book will be yours.

The dollar amount needed is to cover book printing, rewards, shipping, and special printing needs for the prints. Along with the possibility of a couple of convention visits.

Any additional support such as social media sharing is greatly appreciated to get the project funded and in your hands.

Once we get this one done, the goal is to turn this into an on-going book and will be addressed in stretch goals if & when we reach our funding.

I will keep you all updated as we progress. Maybe even offer some bonus rewards and other cool little nuggets as they become available.

Thanks for the support.
