Kickstarter Campaign for a Retro-Action Comic Book Set in the 1980’s!
Okay El Moochadores, yet another reminder of why I’m kind of an awful person. The creators of this comic contacted me a couple of weeks ago to see if I would post about it on the Moo. To which I said, “Sure! Of course I will.” Then life happened, I got sick, and forgot all about it until today, when I was cleaning up my in box. D’oh! However, there’s some good news! First, there’s still time to contribute (keen) and second: The book has it’s funding (double keen)! So, get your wallets out while I tell you all about it.
Creators at Shonuff Studio have a great idea for a comic book. Okay, maybe not “fire breathing super-cow” great, but still pretty great all the same. The book is called Aerobicide: The Extreme Ninja Workout and pits a young asian-american women against the evil gangs of yuppies and weight lifters that plagued the 1980’s! Here’s the official synopsis:
It is the 1980s. Venice Beach has been taken over by Weight lifting gangs, Yuppies and evil ninjas. An 18 year old dance instructor, Sheri Ken, has inherited the skill of a ninja by the way of ancient chants on a cassette containing Heavy Metal music. She must use her ninja skill to annihilate any foe who threatens her dance studio and to make it in time for her next Hollywood audition.
They had me at “Weight lifting gangs.” According to the KS page, they’ve already partnered with Ape Enertainment to publish the book, they’re just seeking the cost of printing the first run of 24 page, full color, comics. Terry Parr, the comics creator, does all the talented art work for the book, which looks frigg’n great.
Though it is true they got their funding, there are still a few days (6 as of this post) to contribute and get in on some of the cool rewards like exclusive prints, a cosplay cover (Leggings!) and VHS covers. Which is cool, until you have to explain to millennials what a VHS was and why it was so important back in 1988… I hate kids. Check out the KS promo video below, along with some sample images from the comic.
