Per Berg’s “Earthbound” Part 2 Blasts Off to Instant Success on Day One
On Thursday, independent comic book creator Per Berg (aka Narwhal) launched acrowdfunding campaign for Earthbound part 2, the long-awaited follow-up to 2019’s action/sci-fi epic.*
The campaign has already blown well past its initial funding goal, having raised more than $8 thousand at the time of this writing.
Written and illustrated by Berg, Earthbound part 2 promises to conclude the story arc that began in the first book.
Here’s the official pitch taken from the Earthbound Indiegogo campaign page:
Earthbound was a stand-out graphic novel from the Comicsgate indie-circuit in 2019, it SOLD OUT after a groundswell of positive grassroots reviews from readers. Many claimed it was their favorite book of the year.
Now we are back with PART 2, the epic conclusion to the tale of Wiz Kid, Julia, and Spaceman.
This time around expect two things: ACTION and ANSWERS!
Julia and Spaceman are headhunters sent to Earth to recruit 4 deadly warriors, The Sirens of Violence. The mission is a competition, who can recruit more for their employer, The 13th Sponsor. Should the competition end in a tie, a 5th target has been declared: an estranged teammate of Julia and Spaceman’s, WIZ KID.
Now in Part 2, the mission moves unrelentingly towards a clash with the Sirens. The only way you can survive against a Siren is if you have another Siren right there to protect you, so the recruitment technology of the R-Types, special weaponry given to Spaceman and Julian by the 13th Sponsor, becomes especially imperative.
Backers can get a copy of Earthbound part 2 for $25. If you have more cash to spend, you can also pick up the following:
- A hardcover edition
- Earthbound t-shirt
- A copy of Berg’s Foreign Agent graphic novel
- A copy of Earthbound part 1 if you want to catch up
