Gonzo Industrial is proud to present "Emergence of the Continuing Punch", a new self-contained Funk Soul Samurai story from comic book artist Nick Gonzo

Funk Soul Samurai is a full-colour action comic series, set in a post-apocalyptic world, following the sword-fighting, skate-boarding, groovy dude as they traverse the wastelands, fighting monsters and mutants, in search of a milkshake, and a slice of pizza. It is entirely dialogue free, utilising only sound effects, with a frenetic art style, and colours heavily influenced by 90s animation. 

In "Emergence of the Continuing Punch", the Funk Soul Samurai fights the following things:

  • Soldiers
  • Giant robots 
  • Science! 
  • A cyborg with a chainsaw 
  • Inevitability 

Check-ch-check-ch-check out the first 5 pages!

"Emergence of the Continuing Punch" will be a 32-page A5 comic book, printed on 120gsm paper, with 300gsm matte laminate covers. 

Alongside production of the A5 comic book will be the Jam Hot super-shiny* special collected edition (*note: shininess cannot be guaranteed), a 52-page A4 comic book. The Jam Hot super-shiny one contains both "Emergence of the Continuing Punch" and "Rampage of the Unchained Appetite", the first Funk Soul Samurai tale originally published in 2016.

We're currently in talks with our printers to make the red and gold lettering metallic/shiny, guaranteeing that glint.

The Roundhouse Kick, Flying Elbow, Quivering Palm, Mantis Strike, Dragon Punch, and Five Point Exploding Heart Technique tiers will also come with 3 A4 (previously A5, but we've upgraded them, baby!) prints designed by carefully curated artists, given the instruction of "do whatever you like inspired by Funk Soul Samurai". Their creations will be revealed throughout the campaign.

There are also also Nick Gonzo commissions available, in any medium, and, even more also, a limited number of cameos available. That's right - be an extra in Funk Soul Samurai!

Your money will be used very wisely.

And if you're still not convinced, Funk Soul Samurai even has a fan in Geof Darrow...

Risks and challenges

All but the cameo pages are entirely drawn and inked, and Nick Gonzo is currently colouring the book. As Nick Gonzo is the creator, writer, artist, inker, and colourist of the project, disagreements and/or conflicts of interest are not expected. Gonzo Industrial does recognise that delays or problems can occur, and will ensure you, the backer, is always notified immediately if issues arise. We are aiming for a smooth and efficient campaign.
