Simon Pothier’s “Tales From The NATverse” Returns to Indiegogo for Book 2

On Monday, independent comic book creator Simon Pothier launched a crowdfunding campaign for Tales From The NATverse II, an 80-page follow-up to the first book that was successfully funded in 2020.

Written and illustrated by Pothier (BLOODHUNT, Daemona), Tales From The NATverse II is an anthology book set in a gritty sci-fi universe and intended expressly for mature readers.

Here’s the official pitch from the Tales From The NATverse II Indiegogo campaign page here:

Follow the adventures of NAT the MERC, an intergalactic man of action for hire and his freelancing rebel friends, including babes like LOANI and ROZE. This 80 (plus) page anthology series of multiple standalone short stories leads into the Nat the Merc series, and will continue as a companion to the primary story.

A MERC leads the life of a freelance space rebel flying free from one job to another. He stands for what’s right, or for what is the right price. No LORDS, No MASTERS!

Backers can get a digital version of Tales From The NATverse II for $20, while physical copies start at $25. If you have more money to spend, you can also pick up the following:

  • Multiple copies of the book
  • Variant covers
  • Sketch covers
  • Art prints
  • A MERC Club card
  • A signed poster
  • Head sketches
  • Copies of the first Tales From The NATverse book if you want to catch up
  • The chance to have your likeness drawn into the final book

It is also worth noting that there is an additional shipping charge starting at $15 for those in the United States.
