In my last post, I warned you all that the Escape From Jesus Island project was coming to a head. Well, it’s on! The project’s Kickstarter proposal launched July 28th, a mere 5 days ago, and has been going extremely well! (see it HERE!) With 36 total chances to actually BE in the comic up for grabs as rewards, this really is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!
(Be warned, 13 of those spots are already taken! Seriously, if you want a chance to be in this comic series, go HERE now!)
Escape From Jesus Island is an original full-color, digitally painted comic book series about an attempt to clone Jesus that goes a little off the rails. The ReGen Corporation eventually succeeds in its quest, but only after creating scores of hideously deformed near-Jesus freaks and a monstrous twin brother, Damien. When the Vatican hears of Christ’s return and sends an elite Black Ops extraction team to ReGen’s remote island testing facility, all Hell breaks loose.
The main story is broken up into five Acts of eight issues each, for a total run of 40 issues. Each Act stands on its own, while also advancing the main story.
So, what can I get?
The appearances you earn for backing this project won’t get you some lame cameo as a random face in a crowd. That’s crap. If you’re a character in our books, you will die a horrible death and we’ll send you a signed print of your death page. That is how we roll. There are even select opportunities to pick which character kills you.
Four substantial characters are also up for grabs. Would you like to be the face of the Antichrist’s bodyguard, Inquisition? Or his Abbess, the mysterious Mother Superior? How about one of the faces of Pariah, the seven-headed monster known in Biblical prophecy as The Beast? Or maybe a ReGen Corp guard whose fate is intertwined with The Twins in ways he/she never could have predicted. We have some great roles available, but they are first-come, first-serve. So grab yours now!
But that’s not all…
There are tons of other rewards available. Exclusive Kickstarter prints, posters, apparel and a small collection (100) of variant cover versions of the comic (15 of these are already gone!), comic pre-orders, PDF bonus content, Art lessons with Mortimer Glum himself, Faction based collector cards, original artwork, and chances to work directly with the EFJI creative team designing mutants for the book, covers, ect! There is a lot to love about this project. So, go on over and check it out.
Art the World! (with comics!!!)
