Writers Eric Peterson and Joe Aubrey have launched a Kickstarter campaign for hardcover comic book series SPACE BASTARDS!
Volume 1, featuring artwork by Darick Robertson, Simon Bisley, Colin MacNeil, Boo Cook, Clint Langley & more, is already a hit – and with a few more contributions, it’ll be on its way to becoming the next big sci-fi series!
In the future, America has taken to the cosmos, but infrastructure is lacking. Getting mail between planets is damn near impossible. Until now!
When you were growing up did you have a dream? Did you want to be a writer, a musician, President of the United States, an astronaut?
Whatever. Point is, are you living that dream now? No? Working a job but barely making ends meet? Is your white picket fence not quite as sparkly as you once thought it’d be?
That’s the rub, ain’t it? Well, let’s talk about dreams for a second…
Look, there were these two kids who once dreamed of making a comic for adults that was the most balls-to-the-wall kinetic action sardonic sci-if story of all time. A story, as luck would have it, about being master of your own destiny. No joke, the very first drawing of a Space Bastards character happened when one of the writers was only 13 years old! In college, that same kid built spaceship sets in his backyard, and made movies about the Intergalactic Postal Service.
Flash forward ten years, and you have right at your doorstep SPACE BASTARDS VOLUME 1.
his is a massive tome of a book. Just over a foot in height! This is the only way to read SPACE BASTARDS and is exactly how the authors intended — presented in a huge over-sized book so you can pour over every detail!
That’s right. And these guys didn’t stop after making one comic. They didn’t stop after making the first hardcover. So far, they have produced a year’s worth of content (over 500 pages) in collaboration with their artistic heroes, namely:
•Darick Robertson (Transmetropolitan, The Boys, Happy!)
•Simon Bisley (Lobo, Slaine)
•Boo Cook (Elephantmen)
•Colin MacNeil (America, Judge Dredd)
•Clint Langley (ABC Warriors, 2000AD)
And more to come!
Welcome to the INTERGALACTIC POSTAL SERVICE. Here, you do not have a boss. You don’t have paperwork. There’s only three rules:
•Whoever delivers the package gets the cash.
•Any postal worker can use any means necessary to steal that package and deliver it themselves.
•The more a package changes hands, the more fees the customer pays. Those fees go to the lucky soul that completes the delivery.
