Kestrelcomic.com Kickstarter is live

Our first Kickstarter is live at www.Kestrelcomic.com now.

We self-funded the first six issues of THE RESISTANTS to show the confidence we had in the books, as well as showing you the reader that we can put out a consistent quality book. But with self-distribution there is a lot of long game planning. So our next issue, a one-shot starring Kestrel, is live on Kickstarter now. This will open up THE RESISTANTS to a whole new audience that we don’t see at the shows as well as some added goodies for those regular con goers to get involved.

Kestrel made her debut in the recent The Resistants: The Broadcast Offensive mini-series. We saw her aid Interval and The Resistants in their struggle to expose the secret criminal alien leadership of the Takeo Corporate State. In the Kestrel One-Shot, we go back a few years to tell the story of Kestrel’s first interaction with Interval and THE RESISTANTS. As an executive weapons designer, Erin Hawthorne, finds her position affords her the ability to help those in need.

See Erin take her first steps as the burgeoning hero Kestrel, while she discovers how best to fight for those that no one else will fight for.

This 28 page full color comic book one-shot is written by K.J Kaminski and features art by Jason Johnson (Gen13, Knight Rider) with colors by Teo Gonzalez (Aspen)  plus a special variant cover by Gus Vazquez (Big Hero Six, Suicide Squad).

With your help and support we can continue to make exciting high-action sic-fi comics.

We had an awesome weekend at the Rose City Comic Con in Portland, OR this past September. I finally got to meet my collaborator, Jason Johnson, face-to-face. It’s amazing we have done almost 100 pages together and only communicated through email. It was a joy to hang out with him and a great weekend all around. We got to meet a ton of people and introduce them to our characters and work. We sold a lot of THE RESISTANTS/ HYPER-ACTION preview and some of our new prints. Jason did sketches and I talked peoples ears off. We got a lot of compliments on our prototype RESISTANTS t-shirts and action figures. I can’t wait to come back next year with all our releases. Thank you Portland and the Rose City staff for a great time!
