Ryan James’ Underwater Adventure “Octo Gone” Now on Indiegogo

It took me far too long for that “Octo Gone” pun to dawn on me.

Over the weekend, aspiring comic book creator Ryan James launched a crowdfunding campaign for Octo Gone issue 1, a 48-page sci-fi book intended as the first of a three-part miniseries.

Written and illustrated by James, Octo Gone is described as an “action-packed underwater adventure like you have never seen!”

Here’s the official pitch taken from the Octo Gone Indiegogo campaign page:

Everything you want in a comic book is right here: story, action, excitement, and beautiful interior artwork where absolutely no corner has been cut.

My name is Ryan James. Growing up in the ‘90’s, my dream was to draw comics. More than 2 years ago, I decided to make that dream into a reality. I began developing the Octo Gone graphic novel from an old book I’d written years earlier. Needless to say, this book was a long time coming, and this campaign will hopefully allow me to permanently establish myself as a comic book creator.

Based on the success of this campaign, with your support, there will be 2 more installments in the Octo Gone storyline.

Backers can get a copy of Octo Gone issue 1 for $20. If you have more cash to spend, you can also receive the following tchotchkes and extras:

  • Multiple copies of the book
  • Variant covers
  • An original head sketch

It is also worth noting that there is an additional shipping charge starting at $15 (!) for those in the United States.
