Check out the new rewards now!

When Ed Wood set out to make Plan 9 from Outer Space, he never knew what a cult following he would create.

He set out to create a movie that featured many of the things that scared people in previous horror flicks: Aliens, Zombies, Vampires and Ghouls. Seeing humanity as the ultimate threat to life in the universe, the aliens come to exterminate us. They do so by reviving our recently dead and keeping them under their control. 

In the end, the humans win, of course, but the aliens never come back. They run home with their tails tucked between their legs. There was no Plan 10... until now. 

So, where do the aliens go when they've already attempted to use our own dead against us? What if they discovered they need not raise zombies from the grave to defeat us when we already possess devices that make us zombies? What if they could hack into that device and use them to make us their puppets?

That was then..this is now.

In this updated sequel to the Ed Wood classic we answer the question: Why raise the dead to destroy humanity when our cell phone culture is doing a fine job of it on its own.

This is Mike Dolce, host of Secrets of the Sire podcast and co-creator of this new Kickstarter campaign with writer James Mascia:

Plan 10 From Outerspace.

Our story takes place in the tiny town of Carmel-By-The-Sea, reimagining the original Plan 9 for our modern times. In this version, our heroes are no strangers to fiendish ghouls, vampires and zombies and quickly dispatch the so-called threat.

The aliens are left with no choice: Plan 10: enslave humanity through a mobile app called Sentient and destroy us one cell phone at a time.

To make our 64-page graphic novel come true we’re looking for 7,500 dollars, the cost of which will be applied to our artist Osiris Junior, our cover artists Soussherpa and Tony Moy and to our various rewards.

Do you like sketch packages and massive comic books rewards? We got em. How about being drawn into the book with a speaking line before you’re unceremoniously decapitated? Yep, it’s there too. And the ultimate packages include Live Radio Air time as a guest or co-host on my show.

Truly, this Kickstarter is unlike any that has come before…or before that or before that. This is Plan 10.

It’s humans vs aliens vs technology for the fate of our world.

We have some great rewards for this campaign, including exclusive prints, comics and graphic novels. Certain rewards will even get you (or someone you choose) drawn into the comic! You can even be a guest on Mike's radio show, Secrets of the Sire. Or maybe you have your own comic project--our cover artist would be glad to design your cover for you! So, scroll on through and take a look at what you can get in addition to Plan 10 from Outer Space! Look below for a breakdown.
