Lethal Comics’ “Mother Trucker” Goes for a Double Whammy on Indiegogo
Veteran comic book creator Andrew (Andy) Belanger recently launched a crowdfunding campaign for Mother Trucker: The Double Whammy, the first two issues of a six-issue series.
Written and illustrated by “The Animal” Bob Anger and featuring colors by Tatto Caballero, Mother Trucker takes place in a sci-fi world inspired by 80s pro wrestling and monster truck rallies.
Here’s the official pitch taken from the Mother Trucker: The Double Whammy Indiegogo campaign page:
A Sci-Fi saga about a Space-truckin,’ Ass-Stompin,’ Wrestle Goddess who’s on a quest to find her long lost daughter and become the Champion of Truck Off, the Wrestlemania of the Star Ways!
Mother Trucker is Over the Top and Running Man meets Barbarella and Wonder Woman. The world she inhabits is 80’s WWF Wrestling, Monster Trucks, and far out Americana. Essentially, a Heavy metal magazine version of American Kinnikuman.
Mother Trucker is a love letter to the Saturday morning cartoon world building with a truck load of edge and heart. It’s big dudes, big Trucks, big business brought to heel by one bad Mother Trucker. In a galaxy where trucking reality shows and wrestling rules entertainment, Truck Off is the ultimate annual event. Truck Off is a high stakes competition where the best intergalactic shipping contracts are won by wrestling on the backs of trucks while racing around the rings of Saturn.
Can Mother Trucker go all the way and take the Bridge-Mart Championship belt at Truck Off 12 and win the truck of her dreams? Big wig corporate giants will do anything to keep her from winning, keep her from the prize, and keep her from the truth about her past. To take them on she’ll need to become the baddest Mother Trucker in the galaxy!
Backers can get a digital pack including both Mother Trucker books, a PDF of Black Church, and a digital sketchbook for approximately $11 US (converted from $14 Canadian). Physical copies of the books start at an early-bird price of approximately $26 US (again converted from $33 Canadian). If you have more money to spend, you can also pick up the following:
- Multiple copies of the books

It is also worth noting that there is an additional shipping charge starting at approximately $12 for those in the United States.
