I'm Winston Gambro, a comic artist and writer and I love all things comics! Rex Radley: Boy Adventurer is a love letter to Jonny Quest, boy adventurers and every 80s cartoon made to sell toys. It's drawn by some of the best indie artists out there (credits below), with colors by me. 

All funding from Kickstarter will go to printing the comic for distribution at conventions, as well as advertising the comic online. 

The comic follows Rex Radley, a boy adventurer (hence the title) and child of two genius scientists. Tragedy struck as a young age when his parents got a divorce, splitting his life into two. 

Rex now splits his time between his mother's life in Japan, fighting Kaiju with her giant robot (inspired by Godzilla, all things Toho, Sealab)

The other half of his life is spent at his dad's, fighting the evil dinosaur-man and his army of Dinosaurians with Tharga, a cave woman from another dimension (inspired by Jonny Quest, the Herculoids, the Mighty Ducks cartoon)

This comic contains four separate stories (two for each parent) and adds up to 24 pages of content.  Additionally, each chapter is drawn by a different fantastic artist:

If you support Rex Radley, you won't be going home empty handed, look at these rewards! 

And here are examples of the custom artwork available at the $50 tier 

Risks and challenges

All the artwork for the comic is 100% completed and once the campaign is over, the files will immediately be sent to the printers.

This isn't my first time getting a comic printed, so everything is prepped for print.

The only thing that may take some time are commissions, but there's a delayed fulfillment time to make up for that.
