“Inglorious Rex” Indiegogo Campaign Raises a Monstrous $150k in First Weekend

Over the weekend, veteran comic book creative team Shane Davis and Yanzi Lin launched a crowdfunding campaign for Inglorious Rex Volume One, an all-new, 48-page, action/sci-fi graphic novel. The project is already a remarkable success, having raised more than $150 thousand in its first few days.

Co-written by Davis and Lin (Starlight Cats) and featuring pencils by Davis, inks by Lin, and colors by Jason Wright, Inglorious Rex is set in a futuristic world where martial arts are dominated by genetically-engineered super-fighters.

Here’s the official plot synopsis taken from the Inglorious Rex Indiegogo campaign page:

Rising star MMA fighter Alex Stone steps for the first time into the world of Rex Fighting – where 20 tons of genetically-manipulated clones are hitched to the neural systems of their human pilots, twisted together in no-holds-barred, high-stakes cage fighting.

In this fist-pumping, pulse-pounding graphic novel, Alex’s unlikely rise as an underdog piloting his late brother’s Rex will set him on a collision course with the fighter that holds the crown – the same man that killed his brother. Alex will have to confront the reasons he stepped into the cage, while waging a winner-takes-all battle for the title of Rex Champion.

Backers can get a copy of Inglorious Rex for $25. If you have more cash to spend, you can also receive the following:

  • A supplemental tie-in book
  • An Inglorious Rex logo shirt
  • A 2nd print of Starlight Cats
  • Original artwork
  • The chance to name your own monster fighter
  • The chance to have your likeness drawn into the final book as a fight spectator

It is also worth noting that there is an additional shipping charge starting at at $10 for those in the United States.

Congratulations to Davis, Lin, and everyone else on the Inglorious Rex team for a successful launch. You can check out some sample artwork below or visit the full Inglorious Rex: Volume One Indiegogo campaign page here.
