X53 Studios’ Western Fantasy Comic “The Vindicators” Now on Indiegogo


Earlier this week, X53 Studios launched a crowdfunding campaign for The Vindicators volume 1, a 58-page fantasy western comic.

Written by Martti Kauppinen and featuring illustrations by Daniel Pascual, and colors by Javi Laparra, The Vindicators is described as a “wild, weird, western adventure”, featuring “a Civil War veteran with steampunk technology and a vampiress with a thirst for redemption.” It’s also fair to say that it is intended for mature audiences.

Here’s the official pitch taken from The Vindicators Indiegogo campaign page:

Get ready for an adrenaline-pumping adventure like no other! “The Vindicators” is a graphic novel that blends the steampunk, western, and horror genres into a thrilling ride that will leave you breathless.

Join Flint Decker, a steam-powered Civil War veteran, and Alice Brown, a centuries-old vampiress, as they set out on a dangerous mission to recruit the visionary inventor, Degraw. But their mission takes a turn for the worse when they discover that Degraw has brainwashed influential people to do his bidding, and the organization they work for, the Cabal, might not be what it seems.

Packed with 58 pages of jaw-dropping action, “The Vindicators” will keep you on the edge of your seat with its explosive combination of guns, blood, and guts. Drawing inspiration from classic TV shows and comics, this graphic novel is a one-of-a-kind masterpiece that will leave you craving more.

Backers can get a digital version of The Vindicators volume 1 for $15, while physical copies start at $25. If you have more money to spend, you can also receive the following tchotchkes and extras:

  • Multiple copies of the book
  • Variant covers
  • A foil cover edition
  • A hardcover edition
  • Art prints
  • T-shirt
  • A jumbo trading card
  • A metal lapel pin
  • Acrylic standees
  • Previous X53 Studios comics if you missed them the first time around

It is also worth noting that there is an additional shipping charge starting at $8 for those in the United States.
