Desperate to to clear their bounties, they travel to the nexus of the bounty hunter trade, the Vegas Independent Territory, to seek the aid of former allies. But when an army of hunters is after you, sometimes the only thing to do…is to find a bigger bounty.

Previously:

Six months ago, INTERVAL, manipulated and controlled by the Takeo Corporate-State leadership, executed their CEO in front of the world; ending “The Broadcast Offensive”. THE RESISTANTS, elevated to the region’s most wanted fugitives, sought refuge in the harsh deserts and hidden caves of the northern Drylands. INTERVAL and KESTREL put the fate of the team ahead of their mounting tension, but GRIM, FULCRUM, MELEE, & ADAM are desperate to resolve their fugitive status, as supplies continue to dwindle. INTERVAL & GRIM convene with allies in the VEGAS INDEPENDENT TERRITORY, a hub of the hunters’ trade, to try to clear the group’s ever-growing bounties.

THE RESISTANTS: Bounty Hunter Blitz #1 on Kickstarter September 12th-October 13th!

 I hope you’ll join us for the all-new mini-series starring our guilt-driven soldier and the uncompromising strike force vs an army of hunters; THE RESISTANTS: Bounty Hunter Blitz #1 written by co-creator K.J. Kaminski (Sophia Saturn) with artwork by returning series artist Jason Johnson (Gen 13, Impulse). It’s been 6 months since the events of the first mini-series, THE RESISTANTS: The Broadcast Offensive, made them some of the world’s most wanted criminals. Tension has been high between INTERVAL & KESTREL and the group is getting anxious to resolve their fugitive status. INTERVAL & GRIM travel to the VEGAS INDEPENDENT TERRITORY to enlist the help of allies and try to clear the team’s bounties. When they show their faces in public, their tremendous bounties draw a slew of ruthless Hunters after them, bringing the characters from HYPER-ACTION in to the main series. But INTERVAL’s allies have a morally questionable solution to the problem. “When every bounty hunter in the land is after you, sometimes the only thing to do is find a bigger bounty.”

We are so excited for people to see this latest arc. Jason has been putting in some of his best work and it’s been a blast seeing him draw so many different returning and new characters. THE RESISTANTS: Bounty Hunter Blitz #1, is a culmination of everything that has come before and leads to the future of the team. You can go to the pre-launch page now and click to be notified for the launch on Tuesday, September 12th. Look for more information and updates through our mailing listsocial media, and www.BigBlueComics.com.

Baltimore Comic Con, October 28th-30th!THE RESISTANTS: The Definitive Guidebook coming soon

Our last convention appearance of the year is coming up at the Baltimore Comic Con October 28th-30th. This is another great event with a strong emphasis on comics. If your in the area, I hope you can make it and don’t forget to stop by Artist’s Alley table #E4 and check out all the cool stuff. Though this is our last convention of the year, we are making plans for some store signings this year to be announced soon.

In spite of all of the setbacks and delays, we are so close. I’m combing the book over and over to make sure every page is perfect. Everyday I’m making it sharper, clearer, and better. I’m actually having a lot of fun rewriting the characters backstory, and making sure that every detail is the best it can be. I’m in the home stretch and will be sending it off to the printer very soon. Thank you to all the backers who have been patiently waiting these last few months. The wait is almost over and you’ll have the books soon enough. I am so proud of this project and am so excited to finally share it. After all rewards are delivered, we will make a limited amount available through our website for those who may have missed out on the campaign. I’ll post more updates here, through social media, and the campaign page.

I hope you enjoy this sneak peek of some colored art that we weren’t able to show off during the campaign. Melee by Ray Anthony Height (Spider-Man, Midnight Tiger), Wartoy by Jason Krause (THE RESISTANTS), and Kona by Gus Vazquez (Big Hero Six, The Flash), with all colors by Ross A. Campbell (Wildstorm).
