About

Hey there! Welcome to the Milky #2 Kickstarter campaign! 👋

If you haven't already, watch the video above for a nice, quick summary of what we're all about (we'll be here when you get back) then read on for character details, new rewards and FOUR FREE PAGES to get you in the Milky mood!

Here’s the gist: A milkman with zero self-esteem leads the oddball residents of Crafton Hill in a daring rescue when his lifelong crush is abducted by aliens… 🛸

Seems cool, right?  Feel like finding out a bit more about Milky and how this comic book will change your life/keep you entertained for 15-20 minutes?

Let's go! 💪

When weighing up whether or not to part with your hard-earned cash and back this comic book, first ask yourself if you enjoy...

✔️ Fun stories like Star Wars, Shaun of the Dead and Guardians of the Galaxy.

✔️ Relatable characters suffering real-world problems in a sci-fi setting.

✔️ Opportunities to be part of the adventure with creators who want to engage with you.

Yeah? Then fasten your seatbelts because you’re in for a wild ride packed with alien action, zingy one-liners and a foul-mouthed old bitch with a shotgun.

We are really proud to present part two of this four-issue comic book series from writer Joshua Saxon, amazing artist Gian Fernando (The Great Wall: Last Survivor), vivid colourist DC Alonso (Aladdin) and spectacular cover artist Unai Ortiz de Zarate (Robocop: Road Trip).

The latest issue is 22 pages of full-colour art, which has been described by critics as “visually spectacular” and "so much fun!"

Printed on quality silk paper by comic book experts Mixam

This is your chance to get early access to the second issue and grab a red-hot Kickstarter exclusive single issue print copy (plus some cool rewards we think you'll dig). 

Milky #1-4 will later be available as a collected edition and separately on digital comics platform Comixology from UK publisher Markosia.  

PARENTAL ADVISORY: It might look cute, but Milky contains foul language, strong themes, violence and other cool stuff young kids should probably be shielded from. 🙈

(Seriously. We’re talking f**ks, b**gers and a few controlled detonations of the C-bomb 💣).

For village milkman Vikinder Singh (“Milky” to the residents of Crafton Hill), every day is a roundhouse kick to his self-esteem.

He gets screamed at in the street by a racist old lady, the local mechanic steals from his milk float and the new supermarket is taking his customers.

The best part of Milky’s day is delivering a bottle of semi-skimmed to pharmacist Lucy Bell. If only he had the cojones to tell her how he really feels about her… 

But on the morning he decides to do exactly that, Lucy and the village women are abducted by big scary aliens!

He has no powers, no armour and zero self-esteem, but Milky holds the fate of the world in his hands as he embarks on an impossible adventure to save Lucy and stop a full-on alien invasion…

Milky #2 picks up right where the first issue left off, taking us from the quiet village of Crafton Hill into the belly of the beast for a closer look at the threat that’s about to rain down a shitstorm on Milky and the other villagers… 👾

Thrust into the action alongside Milky are teen-goth genius Ghost, Ghost's domineering stepdad Jim and loudmouth mechanic Dave - none of whom have had any formal training in battling giant monsters from outer space.

And as the cover suggests, Milky #2 gives us our first look at the scariest mother frigger in the galaxy, Lord Moofu

This gloriously evil bumhole has some proper closed-minded views on the human race, which have inspired a vile plan to pave the way for Earth's domination. And there's only one milkman who can stop him... 😬

TL;DR: Here's the story trailer from the first issue if you prefer your plot summaries video-injected directly into your eyeballs:

Milky has got laughs, action, romance, drama... and giant, hairy-bollock aliens all wrapped up in one unmissable comic book series!  😲

We were seriously blown away by the rave reviews of Milky #1 and--

😠: “Hold on. Rave reviews? These comic book clowns certainly like to blow their own trumpets..."

😕: “Yeah! How do we even know people said stuff?” 

Calm it right down. Here’s a cheeky bit of proof that Milky #1 went down smooth... 👇

We are so pumped about all the positive feedback. But while Milky #1 was quite the page-turner, we’re here to talk about the deuce!  ✌️

Try before you buy? Seems reasonable…

Here’s the first four pages of Milky #2 (nothing too spoilery here if you haven’t read Milky #1 yet).

Alright! That’s about enough of that. Comic books don’t grow on trees, you know!

If you want to find out what happens next, join us on this adventure and all will be revealed. Speaking of which...

Each reward is broken into two parts, the first for those who just want Milky #2 and a bundle option for newcomers who want to catch up on the first issue too.  

Check ‘em out below and choose the reward you want (if you're on your phone, you have to scroll up to the reward section at the top 👆, otherwise they’re over there in the right-hand sidebar for laptop/desktop users👉)

A QUICK NOTE ON DELIVERY: Expensive shipping prices can be a real turn off for Kickstarter backers, but thanks to a program for small publishers, we can ship single issues for just 2€ to the UK/Europe and 3€ to the US/rest of the world (1€ extra when ordering multiple books, SPILT MILK and above due to added weight).

We had no complaints after fulfilling our previous campaign, but we’ve also decided to invest in better quality cardboard envelopes, bags, and backing boards to guarantee safe delivery, all without increasing the shipping price!

Oh, and you may have also noticed the prices are first quoted in euros. That’s because Josh lives in Madrid, Spain. US and UK prices on the reward graphic are based on Google’s currency converter, so may be slightly different at checkout.

Most backers from our last campaign were US-based, so it’s a bit of a shame we can’t change the currency to dollars. But it is lovely and sunny here in Spain, so... I'm over it. 🌞

ADD ONS: Some people are all like, “I need more than one copy! What if aliens abduct the first one?” Totally valid concern, so here’s what you do...

Add €5 to your pledge total and drop us a line stating whether it’s extra copies of Milky #1 or #2 you’re after. Simple!

We’d really love to bring more backers along for the adventure this time, so we’ve gone ahead and created some stretch goals to reward fans who help spread the word with a little extra stuff. 

Hooray for stuff! 🙌

Plus more to be announced if we really smash it! 🤞

Just help us spread the word by sharing the campaign with your pals and everyone gets more Milky goodness! 🥛

The artwork is complete, so we’re looking to raise funds to pay for a small print run exclusively for Kickstarter backers.

Kickstarter also takes a slice (they've got lights to keep on as well) and a percentage goes towards payment processing, taxes...

But comics are expensive to make, so hitting some of these stretch goals will really help pay for production costs and see if we can’t buy the writer back some of his kidneys.

Milky first began when Josh met Gian in a nerdy comic book forum.

The pair discussed a fun, sci-fi comic book script Josh had been working on. Gian hadn't drawn a story that featured so much humour before, but Josh was sure his stye would be perfect for Milky.

Gian later spotted DC's colours on Facebook andknewwe had to get him on the team. After he agreed to lend his vivid colours to the project, it wasn't long before he introduced us to his friend and colleague Unai - who went on to produce two amazing covers for the series.

Keep us on your radar! Milky is on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Plus there's a Milky website where you can sign up for Launch Day alerts for future issues.


Hey! You made it all the way to the bottom of the page! Thanks so much for checking out our Kickstarter campaign for Milky #2. We really hope you'll join us on this adventure... 

Risks and challenges

Previous Milky backers will know that after we hit our funding goal, the comic went into production and was sent out without a hitch.

The art production of Milky #2 is already complete. We'll start the process of printing and sending digital copies out to backers as soon as the campaign is over and we have everyone's details for stuff like the credits page.

We have a specific printing quote from Mixam in the UK, who specialise in comic book printing, and we have a special rate from the post office to make sure shipping costs stay low for backers.

So the only thing that could stop us now would be something like Thanos collecting all the infinity stones again. But even then, I'm pretty sure we'd work it out.
