Michael Park and Chris Baldie’s sensationally-titled ‘Space Captain: Captain of Space’ has launched today on Kickstarter, where the book has already hit the modest funding goal of £300. You’ll never guess what the comic is about.
That’s right! SPACE CAPTAINS! Awesome. The issue – which you can pick up in physical or digital copies – sees Space Captain stranded on a distant planet, with no easy way of getting home. So he decides “hey, I should go home” and sets about achieving that goal. It’s a simple as that, really, and that’s pretty much all I really needed to hear, myself. I’ll be pledging towards this one once I finish writing up this quick thing.
The book will be distributed by DoGooder Comics – the ones who also put out Dungeon Fun and Reel Love – so this has got a pretty strong backing already. The Kickstarter is just to raise funding to take the already-written and drawn story to print. Simple! You can find it here.
