The Sci-Fi Shenanigans of “Rift Riders” Now on Indiegogo

Over the weekend, independent comic book creator Luke Stone* launched a crowdfunding campaign for Rift Riders issue 1, an all-new, 32-page sci-fi adventure.

Co-created by Luke Stone and Piper Steed, written by Steed and featuring illustrations by John Dillard (The Buckler) and colors by Edgar Tavitas, Rift Riders is a spinoff of Stone’s Hybrid series.

Here’s the official pitch taken from the Rift Riders Indiegogo campaign page:

Rift Riders follows the adventures of Israel and his friends Lu’nos and Rivea as they try to figure out what the Green Goo is and how it seems to have replaced an entire timeline. In a Doctor Who meets Peter Pan and the Lost boys style adventure comic, elements of science, mystery, and pulp era action converge for an exciting all-ages story!

First appearing in Hybrids #1 in August 2021, Rift Riders #1 is the first in a series of books that take you along on the gang’s travels as they find themselves in strange new situations while trying to solve the mystery of the mysterious green substance.

Backers can get a digital version of Rift Riders for $5, while physical copies (along with a digital PDF) start at $15. If you have more money to spend, you can also receive the following:

  • Additional copies of the book
  • A chibi sticker
  • Metal art prints
  • A variant cover
  • Collector’s bag
  • 8 previously released books by Arrow Comics

It is also worth noting that there is an additional shipping charge starting at $10 for those in the United States.
