I was minding my own business last night on Twitter (@FingMonkeyKenO) when I ran across something glorious. Michael May and Jason Copland’s comic Kill All Monsters has it’s very own Kickstarter. You can check it out by clicking HERE! So now you can pre-order a copy at your local store, but if you don’t have a friendly local comic shop or you want even more Kill All Monster Goodness you can check it out on the Kickstarter.
I know you’re thinking to yourself, “Ken you keep talking about his book, how good can it be?” I read the web comic. Michael was kind enough to send me a PDF, so then I read that. I can’t wait to read it again when I have a physical copy in my hands. It’s people in giant robot suits fighting giant monsters. It’s people out of robot suits fighting people sized monsters. If that doesn’t have you stomping around the room making Godzilla sounds I don’t know what else I can tell you.
Make sure you check out the Kickstarter though. They have a number of different rewards beyond just copies of their book. There are some fantastic looking prints for those of you who still have empty space on your walls. There are shirts for those of you who wear clothes. There are sketchy pledge levels where you can get some awesome Copland art. You have to move quickly, those are going fast.
Last night I made the joke I need my own Kickstarter to afford the $600 tier. Jason must have been crazy when he agreed to pencil a 5 page story that the funder has written. I want it just so I can play in the amazing setting that he and Michael have created. Couldn’t you see me in a KAM prequel? Fighting in a half sized prototype robot suit. Hitting monsters with a hammer, setting them on fire, and then dying horribly? I wonder if the wife would notice if I spent on tax refund….
In all seriousness, please check out the Kill All Monsters Kickstarter by clicking HERE. You’ll be glad you did.
