Find the campaign here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/moosecatcomics/robo-2


Rewards for Robo #1 have been sent and hopefully everyone’s had a chance to enjoy the comic.  And that means it’s time for a new chapter of the story!  Coming on February 22nd, Robo #2 will be launching via Kickstarter!

Action packed second issue!

I’m very excited to bring you the second installment of Robo!  This issue features a new and unexpected threat to NeuChicago, a journey into Robo’s past, and more information about the have-nots of the future.

Outside the pages, I’ve been trying to add some exciting bonus material to this issue.  Starting with some really cool designs for the Robo Sticker Pack!  Robo postcards are also back, and anyone who missed the first Kickstarter can pick up a copy of the first issue as well.  Finally, I’ve got a few extra surprises to add to the campaign as time goes on!

You!  Reading this!  Check out the Kickstarter!

Robo #1 is available!

After a 23 day campaign, Robo #1 has achieved 130% funding.  I’m very thankful to the friends, collaborators, and new names who helped make this possible.  The funds go towards printing as well as to further the series going forward.

Speaking of printing, the order for physical printings of Robo #1 went out today and should be shipped next week.  This means that the digital copies will soon find their way to backers as well!

Press-ing forward


Reward fulfillment is the top priority right now to make sure that everyone who backed the campaign feels the love and can enjoy the comic.  But there are several other things to do to help Robo reach the world.  In the coming days I will be looking into methods to make physical copies available as well as putting digital copies online in various marketplaces.

 

And let’s not forget Robo #2!  Interior artwork for the second issue is already complete!  You’ll want to check out Robo #2 if you’re interested in more detail on Brain Giggers and Sunbursts’ other technology products in the world of NeuChicago.

 

Because this was my first crowdfunding campaign, I will be making sure I get everything right on the first one before starting a second.  Until then, I always want to hear the feedback you have on the comic when your copy reaches you.

Our Kickstarter campaign launches today!

 

I’m very happy to announce that Robo #1 is ready to be published and made available to the world.  The Kickstarter campaign went live this morning and features some unique reward tiers that are only available until October 18th.

If successful, the money from this campaign will go straight back into the project to make sure the series continues and allow me to continue telling the story.

 

Who is Robo?

In a future where society has broken down and reformed itself, corporations have replaced governments, robots have replaced human labor and even the human mind is commoditized.  NeuChicago is home to Robo, Public Outreach and Defense Liaison of Sunburst Technologies, a defense and weapons technology company based there.

Robo is armored and outfitted with the best Sunburst has to offer. His actual armor, hand mounted plasma beam, jump jets for flight, and enhanced exo-skeletal strength. Beneath the armor is Charles Centon, employee of Sunburst and optimistic champion for the good of the people. While the company views Robo’s job to be making them look good, Charles views his job as protecting the city and its people.

Robo #1 will be available in October 2020.

Robo is a story about the conflict of what’s expected of you by others and your own path in life. In a world of robotic drones, networked brain implants, technological terrorism, corporate espionage, and desperate people, Charles tries to balance his desire to be a hero for the people with his job for a company that only seeks order to do their business.

A New Cyberpunk World

Life in NeuChicago has fallen into an informal caste system of haves and have-nots. Those who are Shareholders of major corporations enjoy benefits and rights above the “Draggers” who are seen as dragging down society by their poverty or misfortune. Those who try to improve their position in life often turn to short term contracts which sell their brainpower to perform computational tasks called “Brain Gigs“. But giving up control of your brain for on-demand tasks has many drawbacks.

Through this, Robo is drawn into a search for a bizarre and inhuman being, who has been pursuing its own agenda unbothered by the human world around it. It’s stealing technology and building something, but what?

Charles runs up against his boss: Barton Gregor.
