Wesley Snipes’ Sci-Fi/Noir Graphic Novel “The Exiled” Now on Indiegogo

Following a successful crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter, independent comic book creator Adam Lawson has launched a follow-up campaign for The Exiled, a 140-page sci-fi/noir graphic novel, via Indiegogo. This gives you a second chance to buy into the book if you missed out the first time.

The new Indiegogo campaign is already fully funded, having raised more than $8 thousand at the time of this writing. It also has a slick, new variant cover by Rob Willis, which is an Indiegogo exclusive.

Co-created by Wesley Snipes (yes- the Daywalker/Passenger 57 himself!) and Keith Arem, The Exiled is written by Adam Lawson (The Kill Journal) and featuring illustrations by Gabriel “Eskivo” Santos (Lazarus Effect) and colors by Valentina Bianconi.

Here’s the official pitch taken from the The Exiled Indiegogo campaign page:

WESLEY SNIPES RETURNS TO COMICS!

The producer and star of the Blade franchise is back with a 140-page, OVERSIZED, balls-to-the-wall sci-fi/noir graphic novel. No punches pulled here.

In this dark tale, Detective Niles “Roach” Washington pursues a serial killer five thousand years in the making. The world around him says to ignore the signs he’s seeing, but his instincts push him forward. With enemies on all sides and within, Roach wades into the darkness to find the killer and uncover Earth’s darkest secret.

This is a collector’s item and is presented in a CAMPAIGN-ONLY OVERSIZED FORMAT (8.5″ x 13″). It is huge. It will be a double-layered softcover (much thicker than standard with wrapped edges) with sewn binding, which allows the book to lay flat with a ribbon bookmark. It will feel as big and dynamic as the story.

Backers can get a digital version of The Exiled for $25, while physical copies start at $50 (which also comes with an exclusive art print, a metal bookmark, trading cards, and a digital edition). If you have more money to spend, you can also receive the following:

  • Multiple copies of the book
  • Variant covers
  • A manga-sized “Go” edition
  • T-shirt
  • Figurine
  • A 48-page supplemental book titled The Exiled: Forgotten Wars

It is also worth noting that there is an additional shipping charge starting at $14 for those in the United States. So… a nice, even dollar for every ten pages.
