EIR is coming to Kickstarter in November

by ryankl

I’m heading back to Kickstarter in November with EIR


This all ages sci fi 24 page one-shot comic is rocking Alfie Gallagher on art, Triona Farrell on colours, Ryan Ferrier on letters, Dan Hill editing, and me writing the script, all through my DIY imprint Four Colour Ray Gun.

The campaign launches on November 01, and there will be a sweet offer coming for those who back in the first 24 hours [more exciting info being released soon].

We’ll be starting the PDF of the comic at $1 – and we hope this lures in everyone who is, or has, a kid with a mobile device and who loves great genre fiction that doesn’t pander or talk down, has something important to say, and does it through insane intergalactic adventuring and a great young female lead in Sasha.



The campaign will expand to more pledge levels:

  • a $3 PDF absolutely full of extras – process material/sketches/designs, the script, an essay about other great all ages comics, etc.
  • the chance to get some Alfie commissions @ $90, or a cover from him @ $110 [all crazy bargains, he’s just so good]
  • an Audio Commentary from me

At present, there won’t be any options to buy the book in print through the campaign [see my usual complaints about the Australian postal system/costs], though perhaps exclusive opportunities could become available throughout the campaign [and extras could come with those rare print copies]… :]

This will be my fourth Kickstarter campaign, after raising over $10,000 for DEER EDITOR with Sami Kivelä across 3 years, and I’m excited to launch something new, and completely standalone.

Also a reminder that you can VIEW THE EIR TEASER TRAILER HERE

The whole team at Helmet HQ is keen to get this book out into the world because it means so much to us, and we completely believe in it and love it.


And we hope you do, too. DIY comics are fun to make, scary to make, and beautiful to get into the right hands. We hope you help us in November find all the people who need this and get us funded, and beyond.


THANK YOU, and stay tuned for more news in the coming weeks to see all the reasons to get excited and how this campaign can also work for you.
