Shane Davis’ “Inglorious Rex Volume 2” Rules Indiegogo; Raises Six Figures on Day One
Alternatively: “Rex Wrecks Your Wallet”
The project is already a kaiju-sized success, having raised nearly $120 thousand at the time of this writing.
Written by Shane Davis and Yanzi Lin, Inglorious Rex Volume 2 features pencils by Davis, inks by Lin, and colors by Jason Wright.
Here’s the official pitch taken from the Inglorious Rex Volume 2 Indiegogo campaign page:
Inglorious Rex Volume 2:
Heavy is the Crown
Rising star MMA fighter Alex Stone steps for the first time into the world of Rex Fighting – where 20 tons of genetically-manipulated clones are hitched to the neural systems of their human pilots, twisted together in no-holds-barred, high-stakes cage fighting.
In this fist-pumping, pulse-pounding graphic novel, Alex’s unlikely rise as an underdog piloting his late brother’s Rex will set him on a collision course with the fighter that holds the crown – the same man that killed his brother. Alex will have to confront the reasons he stepped into the cage, while waging a winner-takes-all battle for the title of Rex Champion.
Inglorious Rex is a passion project almost 10 years in the making. Shane Davis brings to this project over 20 years of experience as a professional comic book penciller and writer on projects such as DC Comic’s Superman: Earth One, Batman, New Gods and more. He also co-created almost every member of DC Comic’s Red Lanterns, including the world famous fan-favorite cat Dex-Starr the Red Lantern.
