Hey El Moochadores, currently there’s a kickstarter campaign for volume 3 of an original new comic, Dragon Slayer! Created by Devin Kraft, and colored by Space Gun Studios, this story follows a King who is seeking revenge against a dragon, and a Ronin out to kill the king. Here’s the synopsis:

Dragon Slayer follows three characters as they seek revenge. El Diel,Diel an outsider to the bustling feudal metropolis of Bel Brixus, sets out to kill the king who has provoked the destruction of his kingdom at the hands of a dragon.aldbrand In the wake of Bel Brixus’ destruction, King Aldebrand seeks to kill the dragon alone and unaided, leaving his army in shambles and the population to nurse its wounds.

His city is smoldering, and with his kingdom still in ruins, he presses onward, aided by his right hand man Darius. El, meanwhile, follows close behind, waiting for his chance to bring justice to the king.

We had a chance to check out the first issue where in Kraft weaves his own unique mythology to make a great story of revenge. Much of Dragon Slayer’s style is heavily influenced by eastern myths and legends, but there are also elements of magic and steam punk woven in to make a very dynamic and interesting world. Walking through that world are incredibly well designed characters and monsters.5eb4e4b5365aff7921e3d2de77bd75e8_large We especially enjoyed the “dog” like dragon that burns Bel Brixus at the start of the book, and even the grim, yet colorful, warriors/ronin, like El Diel. They are a different breed of ronin too. These are motorbike riding, gun toting, ronin and each wears the mask of a monster, or demon, giving them a fierce appearance. Though we want to avoid spoilers, we did especially enjoy one part of the book where El Diel has his need for revenge questioned shortly after being injured by a supernatural monster. All in all a great, action packed book, that you can help get made!

As of this post, the Kickstarter campaign has more than met its goal, but there is still a couple of weeks left to help contribute and get in on some of the many rewards being offered to contributors.

I’ve posted a few sample pages from the comic below, along with a short Q&A with Devin Kraft, and the kickstarter promo video. Check it all out, then skip on over to KS and help a great indie comic get published!

Enjoy!

Our Interview with Devin Kraft!

WE’RE BACK! Yeah, it’s been awhile, but that’s only because the unjust gods that rule our universe have been kicking me around like a hacky sack. But enough excuses! We got a Moocast, and you’ve got ears (we hope), so let’s make this happen!

On this episode we’re talking with indie comic maker Devin Kraft! Devin is the creator of a bunch of great comics, like Dragon Slayer, and I really got to apologize to Devin for getting this episode on so late. For this episode he joined the show to promote hisphoto-original Kickstarter for his new comic The Silence: Track One, which was fully funded! Way to go Devin! The Silence is a great looking story about a band of girls (rock band) that set out to find and save their fathers, who’ve been lost at sea. And they do it on a yellow submarine. Groovy.

So, here we go folks. It was hell to make, but now it’s here and ready for your eager ear holes! Go now, and get that salty snack and a cool beverage! Then find your way over to your favorite comfy spot, nestle in and hit play on the best damn podcast your friends don’t know about!

Enjoy!

Silence : Track One

Silence

A Cool New Indie Comic Kickstarter!

Hey El Moochadores! A while back we featured a very cool independent comic, Dragon Slayer, by indie creator Devin Kraft. Well, having successfully funded Dragon Slayer, Devin is back with a new full color comic about the “transformative power of music!” Silence: Track One is the story of a small seaside town who’s men have started to disappear as their ships go missing at sea. Here’s the synopsis:tumblr_ntrnvazeKj1r6id2zo1_1280

Johanna Jones, a runaway from the town of Anthem receives a letter from the SSCC informing her that her father has gone missing after The September, the ship he was aboard, failed to return on time. They plan on repossessing her childhood home and allow her several days to collect any important belongings. Johanna reluctantly returns home to try to put together an expedition to search for The September’s whereabouts. Along with her best friend, a washed up elderly ex-punk rocker, an on again off again addict, and a cat named Arpeggio, she sets off on a yellow submarine called the Heart of Gold for Hades’ Hexagon, a mysterious area where ships keep disappearing.

According to the Kickstarter page, the art for this book is already done and, when printed, will be 40+ full color pages. Devin has loaded this campaign with a bunch of great rewards, and as of this post there’s still 28 day left to contribute. Hit the link above for more details about the book, sample art, and rewards. I’ve posted a few sample images below along with the Kickstarter promo video. Best of luck to Devin and we hope to see this book hit all its goals!

It’s hard out there for a geek

 

This happens to me whenever they play Depeche Mode

Has this happened to you?  A comic book series that had delivered a story you already found satisfactory suddenly spawned “prequels“?  Or somebody rejiggered your childhood wonderment with some fast-and-loose film editing?  Did your favorite costumed hero acquire an underwhelming side-kick and a breastplate with nipples?  Do you live in constant fear that some day even your most obscure of favorites will be given the Lost in Space treatment?

Look! We found the last Facebook holdout!
