STAIN THE SEAS SCARLET – The Pledge Levels $2-$15

STAIN THE SEAS SCARLET is a spacesuit noir revenge one-shot comic from Alex Cormack and me and it’s coming to Kickstarter next week.

To get you prepared, so you can get your brain cogs turning now before you ever hit the campaign, we wanted to let you know the pledge levels – their costs, and their bounty.

$2 – The PDF

For two Aussie dollars [remember, this means a lesser total in currency of the UK and USA, and others], you can have the PDF of STAIN THE SEAS SCARLET, so you can read the whole 22 page story. The book is already complete, so you’ll get this very quickly after the campaign ends.

$4 – The Deluxe PDF

This is a PDF with the whole story, plus the whole script, and some back matter process of art, and essays on similar topics, and pin ups, and designed posters, and whatever else we can throw in there :]

This should run you 60+ pages, easy.

$7 – The PDF Box Set

This gets you the PDF, the Deluxe PDF, as well as The RKL Script Book Vol. 4 feat. scripts from all kinds of books I’ve written.

This tier is a jump up, but it’ll also give you access to some extra material we unlock throughout the campaign, and you’re definitely gonna walk away with enough digital comics material to fill a box.

$10 – The Talking Pin Up and the PDFs

I will letter a pin up of Yelena and email you the resulting JPG, as shown below.

You also get all previous digital rewards.

$15 – Audio Commentary

You can download an Audio Commentary by me that you can listen to as you read the comic n real time and it’ll give you inside tips into how the comic was made, as well as provide some process viewpoints that might help a fellow creator.

This tier comes with all previous digital rewards*.

*But if you want a Talking Pin Up you have to add another $2, please.

——-

Okay, these are your baseline digital rewards for the campaign. You can buy in low, $2, and get the story – there’s no excuse for feeling like that’s priced outta range, I hope.

But, if you want to support either of us and throw a little more, then we’ll aim to throw a little more back. These tiers contain a lot of work, a lot of effort, and throughout the campaign we plan on unlocking a wide variety of extra downloads and PDFs and eBooks to get you excited to read comics and love them even more.

We also want everyone getting their money’s worth. If you’ve backed any of my campaigns before, you know what I mean. If you haven’t, then ask someone who has – they’ll let you know that money spent on this campaign is well spent because you’ll get plenty more bang for your buck with us than you have anywhere else in a long while.

We launch in a week, get excited, and we’ll let you know in two days what the pledge level tiers are like for the $5–$300 range :]

Stay tuned.

STAIN THE SEAS SCARLET – Meet and Greet

My next one-shot comic is a spacesuit noir revenge tale with Alex Cormack called STAIN THE SEAS SCARLET and it’s coming to Kickstarter next week, for the whole of November.

I’m in love with this book and I want you to fall in love, too, so here’s a little meet and greet for you to get to know everyone and everything about it:

ALEX CORMACK

Hot on the heels of his titanic launching of indie runaway success SINK with writer John Lees at ComixTribe, we steal Alex away for one issue and he brings everything to these pages. His inks were phenomenal, and then he coloured himself and made some insanely great choices. This book looks this good because he’s an artist worth knowing, following, and falling in love with.

Here’s a panel of our spacesuited lead using a gravity well around her fist to draw in nefarious nanoblobs to use them against her attackers.

HASSAN OTSMANE-ELHAOU

The brains behind the analytical masterpieces StripPanelNaked and PanelXPanel can also letter. The amount of intellect he’s brought to this comic is amazing and everything is 1000x better because of his inclusion in the book.

Here’s our opening panel.

YELENA

Our lead character, and she’s a bruiser. Her planet is being terraformed by invading android weirdo armies and she’s fought the good fight and now is making one last Hail Mary play.

I’ve loved writing Yelena and I think a lot of people are going to love her after they read this issue.

PLATH

Our story’s villain, or, the lead villain representing a villainous regime. It’s hard to pin down exactly what Plath is – robot, techno-organic 80s video nasty, fleshy intergalactic Cronenberg nightmare – so it’s better to judge Plath by actions, not words. And Plath is nasty, just soullessly nasty. The kind of soulless nasty we need to defeat in the world in 2017.

And that’s really all you need to know. I could tell you more about Yelena’s planet, but it’s pretty well fubar. I could explain how Yelena’s sister figures into this, but I’d rather that be a surprise. And I won’t recount what the robot army are like as a whole because if Plath is their leader then you know something’s rotting in Intergalactic Denmark.

Though it might be sensible to introduce myself, I suppose.

RYAN K LINDSAY

I’m a writer. This is my sixth Kickstarter campaign. I’ve written for Dark Horse, Black Mask, Vertigo, IDW, ComixTribe, and my own imprint which this comic will be on – Four Colour Ray Gun.

I hope you like all the ingredients that have gone into this book and we’ll see you next week when we launch, and launch strong.

Stay tuned!

STAIN THE SEAS SCARLET – Coming Soon to Kickstarter

STAIN THE SEAS SCARLET is a spacesuit noir revenge one-shot from Alex Cormack and me that’s coming to Kickstarter in November.

This 22 page┬ástandalone one-shot comic is completely finished and we’ll be running a digital only campaign for it next month. It follows Yelena, a resistance warrior realising the terraforming robot army has won, but that’s no reason to give up.

You can get the comic, or some digital extras – in the usual style you’ll know well if you’ve backed any of my 5 previously successful campaigns – and then there’ll be great art opportunities, other fun stuff, and plenty of digital extras unlocked as we cruise past our funding goal and beyond.

We’re going to be hunting for $3000 so I’ll let you know particulars you should keep an eye out for in the lead up to this so we can launch with a strong day and no one misses out on the good stuff they wanted right away – there’s gonna be OG art, and a cover commission you will not want to miss if you’re putting together your own comic projects.

I’m excited to release this comic because Alex Cormack’s art in it is completely wild and you’re going to fall in love, this I promise.
