Splatto Comics’ “Impossible Stars” Now on Indiegogo
Break the Alien Quarantine!
Earlier this week, Splatto Comics launched a crowdfunding campaign for Impossible Stars, an all-new sci-fi graphic novel set in the same timeline as Desolation Wave (a back-up story in Jawbreakers: GØD-K1NG).
Written by Richard C. Meyer (Jawbreakers, Iron Sights) and Chuck Dixon (Batman) and featuring artwork by Renzo Rodriguez, Impossible Stars is set approximately two hundred years in the future, and mankind has hit an extra-terrestrial snag in our plans to begin interstellar travel.
Here’s the official plot synopsis taken from the Impossible Stars Indiegogo campaign page:
As Earth is about to launch the first of its new fleet of FTL (Faster Than Light) spacecraft to explore beyond our Solar System, an Alien Empire threatens us with ANNIHILATION if we break the quarantine that they have imposed upon us!
After a beam weapon almost destroys a major metropolitan area on the Eastern seaboard of the United States, ALL nations capitulate to the demands of the Alien Empire!
But back-up pilot Tyrus Blake refuses to let an Alien Empire decide the future of Earth. He steals one of the FTL spacecraft and races to test the quarantine…putting the entire planet in jeopardy!
The United Nations tasks hero-astronaut Aaron Cruz to overtake and destroy Tyrus’ ship before it breaks the quarantine and the entire planet has to pay for his insolence! But Aaron is dealing with some startling aftereffects from the rocket crash that turned him into an international hero!
Backers can get a copy of Impossible Stars for $25. If you have more cash to spend, you can pick up additional copies of the book. There are several add-on options, including a blueprint of Impossible Stars‘ FTL ship and a few prior Splatto books such as PANdemIC and DO AS YOU’RE TOLD: the Ballad of No.
However, the most interesting add-on purchase has to be an all-new Nexus book written by Nexus co-creator Mike Baron and illustrated by Kelsey Shannon.
The best part? The project is already fully funded, having raised nearly $30 thousand at the time of this writing.
