“Like Robert Crumb and Jim Starlin working on the Beano with a colourist recovering from some long strange trip he took in the sixties.”-Splank comics blog
“Pawley’s art style makes him stand out among today’s artists. No one else blends the bizarre with the unconventional with the colorful to create such a fun, cool comic.” -A Place To Hang Your Cape
Who Are The GalaXafreaks?
The GalaXafreaks are a bunch of galaxy sized weirdos getting up to hi-jinx! I've previously successfully crowdfunded 4 issues of the original series and two issues of Dark Vibes. You can download a free PDF of GalaXafreaks: Original Series No#1 here!
With this campaign I’m hoping to fund the printing and distribution of the next issue in my ongoing miniseries “GalaXafreaks : Dark Vibes”
You can read a selection of pages from issues 1 & 2 here.
What About The Back Issues?
Okay so this campaign is for issue 3! If you’re new to the vibe, don’t worry! Just pick a Back Issue Bundle when you pledge to catch up on the freaky weirdness! Issues 1 & 2 were a big success and my turn around is really quick (normally one month after the campaign ends!!)
Dark Vibes: A freaky miniseries across multiple dimensions!
Here’s a brief recap of the story!
In the first issue we meet the Darklings. One Darkling in particular is different from all the rest! What has Meeko got to do with the origins of her planet and what is her relationship to the Cosmic Giant Captain Yeah!?
In issue 2 the plot thickens as Captain Yeah! and Meeko start to realise the epic proportions of the Dark Vibe Underlords plans! Gasp as Fuzz Muff gains power and seemingly takes control!
As issue 3 opens we find Captain Yeah! and Meeko desperately searching across dimensions for the lost Galaxafreaks! Only together can they restore order to the multiverse and defeat the evil Fuzz Muff! Jeepers!

GalaXafreaks Owes Everything To The Community!
Seriously! I owe my previous successes to the fact that I have some great people fighting in my corner. It's such an uplifting feeling knowing that there are people all over the world who dig my work and want to support me. So this is a big public THANK YOU! to everyone who helps, not just by putting their hands in their pockets but by spreading the good word too! You rock!
What Do I Need To Make It Happen?
Simple. Previous experience has taught me that I need to raise £500 to print and distribute 100 copies of GalaXafreaks! So that is what I'm setting my target at. Now, If I reach that quickly, I can start to think BIG and add some awesome stretch goals, like a larger print run or maybe some extra far out merchandise!
What About The Tiers?
There are a whole range of different perks to suit all pockets. From signed copies to original artwork. Plus a few t-shirts and posters along the way! Be sure to check the full list on your right!
