X53 Studios’ “Goshawk and Falconet” Flying High on Indiegogo (Crowdfunding Spotlight)

X53 Studios recently launched a crowdfunding campaign for Goshawk and Falconet, a 52-page comic book intended fir mature audiences.

The project is already fully funded, having raised nearly $10 thousand at the time of this writing.

Written by Martti Kauppinen and featuring illustrations by Daniel Pascual, colors by Javier Laparra and lettering by Alex Simmons, Goshawk and Falconet is a superhero story described as being “filled with bullets, blood & butt-kicking.”

Here’s the official pitch taken from the Goshawk and Falconet Indiegogo campaign page:

From the makers of Arachna, comes a new superhero comic that takes place in the same, shared universe. Goshawk & Falconet are a bird-themed duo who use cutting-edge technology to fight crime in Los Angeles. From their secret lair underneath the Gunn mansion, Goshawk & Falconet can take to the streets using specialized motorcycles and glide in the air using their retractable wing engines.

Can Goshawk, alias Baron Gunn – an engineer turned millionaire superhero – save his beloved Sierra (Falconet) from the crime boss called King Vulture? Who
is the mysterious clawed criminal in question? Why does he know so much about the superhero duo, and not just when they’re in costume?

Backers can get a digital version of Goshawk and Falconet for $15, while physical copies start at $25. If you have more cash to spend, you can also receive the following:

  • Multiple copies of the book
  • Variant covers
  • “Naughty” variant covers
  • A hardcover edition
  • Acrylic standees
  • Copies of Arachna issues 1 & 2 (physical and digital)
  • A “mystery box” packed with X53 Studios swag

It is also worth noting that there is an additional shipping charge starting at $8 for those in the United States.
