Ben Fuselier’s Sci-Fi Adventure “Outlaw Nights” Returns for Issue 2

“It appears that we now have an Outlaw Nights for an In-Law Nights!”

Eh, you can’t win ‘em all. Anyway…

Over the Easter holiday weekend, Ben Fuselier launched a crowdfunding campaign for Outlaw Nights issue 2, a 25-page sci-fi comic book.

Written by Fuselier and featuring illustrations by Juanito Arceneaux (Dwarfs vs. Lion), colors by Marcos Martins and lettering by the prolific Eric Weathers, this issue of Outlaw Nights is the next installment of what is planned as an eight-book story arc.

Here’s the official pitch taken from the Outlaw Nights Kickstarter campaign page:

Welcome to the 31st Century.

Humanity has been colonizing outer space. History is very much repeating itself, as the nations of earth are at each other’s throats, competing over territory and resources. Technology, extremism, and polarity have advanced, but the issues are very much the same.

In spite of earth’s attempt to stranglehold the colonies is backfiring, as the vast expanse of space has given birth to a new Golden Age of Piracy. Crime is booming. In the midst of the chaos of government and rebellions galore, we have our main character: Cyrus Lawson. Cyrus has had a rough upbringing and is seeking a life as a “small town hero.” He has joined the colony guard of a small, insignificant settlement known as Terez. He figures that he won’t have to deal with anything serious…he is very wrong…

The pirates of the ship Hazard, led by the infamous captain known simply as Ivory, are invading the settlement seeking a special data fragment. This will lead them to a treasure that is a complete game changer.

Backers can get a digital version of Outlaw Nights issue 2 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:

  • Multiple copies of the book
  • Posters
  • Copies of Outlaw Nights issue 1 if you want to catch up

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