The Galactic Rodents of Mayhem Return in “Rat-Trap” (Crowdfunding Spotlight)

Capybaras in a spaceship… RODENT POWER!

Nah, that doesn’t sound quite right.

Anyway… Independent comic creator Gilbert “Gilly” Deltrez* recently launched a crowdfunding campaign for Galactic Rodents of Mayhem – Rat-Trap, a 32-page, oversized comic book (with 8.5” x 11” dimensions) starring a badass group of anthropomorphic capybaras.

Written by Deltrez and featuring illustrations by Sebastian Navas, Galactic Rodents of Mayhem – Rat-Trap picks up where the first 4-issue GROM arc left off.

Here’s the official pitch taken from the GROM – Rat-Trap Indiegogo campaign page:

GALACTIC RODENTS OF MAYHEM Returns in an ONGOING Comic Book series!

In 2019, we successfully launched our breakout smash debut campaign on Indiegogo which brought our 120-page GROM Volume 1 to life!

NOW, WE’RE BACK TO CONTINUE OUR AWESOME SPACE CAPYBARA ODYSSEY!

GALACTIC RODENTS OF MAYHEM – RAT-TRAP!

RAT-TRAP! is the NEW, NEXT, EPISODIC-CHAPTER of the main GROM storyline! Our Rat-Trap issue clocks in at 32-JUMBO-SIZED 8.3 x 11.5 pages! Follow BASH, RIPPLE, and MONA-LISA as they get tossed into their most dangerous adventure yet!

Come for the nostalgia… stay for the MAYHEM!
