What is Metal Made Flesh?
Metal Made Flesh is a cyberpunk space opera that has been likened to "Bladerunner meets Game of Thrones." Humanity has been chased to the brink of extinction by an unrelenting foe called the “Veul” and has been forced to take refuge in Tuaoni, a sprawling city on the black market trading hub Equan Yas.
Reduced to extreme poverty, and treated as the lowest of the low by the planet’s inhabitants, humans must do whatever it takes to survive.
The series centres on three humans, the cold, merciless cyborg Izobel Vice who loses more of her humanity with each passing upgrade; the psychopathic assassin Phaeon Nex, and Kalibos, a hideous mutant war machine.
Blood and Oil is a full graphic novel and the second in the Metal Made Flesh series. It continues on from the first book Metal Made Flesh in a graphic novel format. It features three new stories from Creator and artist Simeon Aston, writer Jeremy Biggs and introduces a new artist to the series, Phil Buckenham.
- The First Book - "Metal Made Flesh" (Book One)
- The Second, new Book - "Blood and Oil" (Book Two)
- All physical books come with their respective digital editions
- Original Art including Sketches, being featured in the book, a one off painting and digital artwork.

Risks and challenges
This is the fifth Kickstarter we've run, and since we started we've learned a lot, including having good control over our printing sources, learning how to make tweaks to improve quality, allowing time for any delays in printing, and having backups in case a printer is unable to fulfill on time.
We'll be notifying you at all stages of the Kickstarter how progress is coming along, including an insight into the writing process and showing work in progress pics of the artwork.
We're confident we can deliver on time and to the high quality our backers demand!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
