Aardvark’s Sci-Fi Comic “Aquila of the Phoenix Guard” Fully Funded on Indiegogo
Over the weekend, Aardvark launched a crowdfunding campaign for Aquila of the Phoenix Guard, a 25-page comic intended as the first issue in a new series.
The project is already fully funded, having raised nearly $3,500 at the time of this writing.
Illustrated by Cari Salviejo, Aquila of the Phoenix Guard is a manga-inspired sci-fi book that is attempting to bridge the divide between realistic stories and fantastic, interstellar settings.
Here’s the official pitch taken from the Aquila of the Phoenix Guard Indiegogo campaign page:
A back-to-basics cop comic, in a setting inspired by retro-scifi with interiors by Cari Salviejo, the breakout artist of SPQR’s Bizarre Adventure.
AQUILA seeks to take readers back to an age where heroes and villains were not always genius scientists and genocidal titans. AQUILA tells real-world stories, with the most unreal backdrop imaginable.
The Call to Adventure is Interstellar!
Backers can get a copy of Aquila of the Phoenix Guard for $10. If you have more cash to spend, you can also pick up the following:
- Multiple copies of the book
- Variant covers
- Collector Box
- Pheonix Guard Pin
- Black Skull Gang Patch
- Aquila Standee
- A digital “original concept” reader
It is also worth noting that there is an additional shipping charge starting at $8 for those in the United States.
