We always love a good independent comic, having published two ourselves with DFAT Comics. That’s why we’re excited to share the Kickstarter for Eric Peterson and Joe Aubrey’s upcoming series, Space Bastards. Who knew that the intergalactic postal service could be so exciting?! Read more about this next great sci-fi series below!


Help Kickstart the next great sci-fi franchise!

Writers Eric Peterson and Joe Aubrey have launched a Kickstarter campaign for hardcover comic book series SPACE BASTARDS!

Volume 1, featuring artwork by Darick Robertson, Simon Bisley, Colin MacNeil, Boo Cook, Clint Langley & more, is already a hit – and with a few more contributions, it’ll be on its way to becoming the next big sci-fi series!

In the future, America has taken to the cosmos, but infrastructure is lacking. Getting mail between planets is damn near impossible.  Until now!

When you were growing up did you have a dream?  Did you want to be a writer, a musician, President of the United States, an astronaut? 

Whatever.  Point is, are you living that dream now?  No?  Working a job but barely making ends meet?  Is your white picket fence not quite as sparkly as you once thought it’d be?

That’s the rub, ain’t it?  Well, let’s talk about dreams for a second…

Look, there were these two kids who once dreamed of making a comic for adults that was the most balls-to-the-wall kinetic action sardonic sci-if story of all time.  A story, as luck would have it, about being master of your own destiny.  No joke, the very first drawing of a Space Bastards character happened when one of the writers was only 13 years old!  In college, that same kid built spaceship sets in his backyard, and made movies about the Intergalactic Postal Service.

Flash forward ten years, and you have right at your doorstep SPACE BASTARDS VOLUME 1. 

his is a massive tome of a book.  Just over a foot in height!  This is the only way to read SPACE BASTARDS and is exactly how the authors intended — presented in a huge over-sized book so you can pour over every detail! 

That’s right.  And these guys didn’t stop after making one comic.  They didn’t stop after making the first hardcover. So far, they have produced a year’s worth of content (over 500 pages) in collaboration with their artistic heroes, namely:

  • Darick Robertson (Transmetropolitan, The Boys, Happy!)
  • Simon Bisley (Lobo, Slaine)
  • Boo Cook (Elephantmen)
  • Colin MacNeil (America, Judge Dredd)
  • Clint Langley (ABC Warriors, 2000AD)

And more to come!  

Welcome to the INTERGALACTIC POSTAL SERVICE.  Here, you do not have a boss.  You don’t have paperwork.  There’s only three rules:

  • Whoever delivers the package gets the cash.
  • Any postal worker can use any means necessary to steal that package and deliver it themselves.
  • The more a package changes hands, the more fees the customer pays.  Those fees go to the lucky soul that completes the delivery.

 

Go to SPACEBASTARDS.COM to get an exclusive preview of the comic.  Sign up for the newsletter there and you get an automatic profile created on parceltransferred.com— the social media site dedicated to SPACE BASTARDS.  There you can leave the life you’re living  and become the Space Bastard you always wanted to be.  Steal packages.  Deliver them. Earn credits.  Buy ships and upgrade your arsenal.  Play the game while this Kickstarter runs!

Look.  Listen here.  You aren’t just supporting a book launch.  You aren’t just getting a new chance in life as a galaxy-faring SPACE BASTARD.  You are getting in on the ground floor of the most audacious book series ever launched, with over 4 volumes of content ALREADY COMPLETELY PRODUCED!  You heard me right.  This is not a book series in development. The writers and artists are working hard right now on potential books for the second year!
