The “2100 Samurai” Return for Issue 3 (Crowdfunding Spotlight)

Don’t call him Jack.

Independent comic book creator Nick Gibson recently launched a crowdfunding campaign for 2100 Samurai issue 3: A Bridge Too Far, a 20-page, black and white cyberpunk action book with a manga-inspired flare.

The project is already fully funded, having raised more than $13 hundred at the time of this writing.

Described as a “blending of such classics as Ghost In The Shell and Blade Runner”, A Bridge Too Far picks up where the second issue left off, with a vagrant samurai slowly piecing his life back together in a world that is not his own. It is also worth mentioning that the book is absolutely intended for mature audiences.

Here’s the official pitch taken from the 2100 Samurai Indiegogo campaign page:

Once Kiro Had A Life

A samurai born into antiquity, thrust into modernity. Kiro, the warrior who everything. Has now lost everything.

His way of life

His would be wife

Anything and everything that he once held dear is now gone.

His life, dead.

His soon to be wife, now among the living dead.

Kiro must build anew. Living among some of the lowest rungs society can offer. Our warrior finds an old sense of kinship among these stragglers. Chief among them being their reluctant leader: Tyler.

A street urchin by trade, with only her sister to care about her. With her sister Judy now gone. Tyler has inherited not just her dearly departed sister’s brothel, but also all the problems that come with it.

Namely, rivals.

Backers can get a digital version of 2100 Samurai issue 3 for $5, while physical copies start at $10. If you have more cash to spend, you can also receive the following tchotchkes and extras:

  • Stickers
  • Trading cards
  • A signed, limited “Blood and Steel” edition with a holo-foil cover and red tones added to the interior artwork
  • Copies of issues 1 and 2 if you want to catch up

It is also worth noting that there is an additional shipping charge starting at $9 for those in the United States.
