Bonus Episode: Stealth Hammer Kickstarter with Ryan Drost
Brian and Joe Stark talk with Ryan Drost of the Star Joes podcast about his new Kickstarter project an all ages comic book Stealth Hammer. The goal of the Kickstarter is to create the first issue of a true all-ages comic (meaning something anyone of any age can read and enjoy, not just for kids). Once that is produced, I’ll be looking to shop it around to hopefully be picked up and create a series. The Kickstarter will fund the costs for the artwork (all done by new amazing artist Alexandra Scott, currently artist on web comic Woven), the printing, costs to produce some of the rewards, and to cover taxes on the income. I’m receiving no income from this campaign. The comic will be a 22 page story. There will be a stretch goal that will allow for the 5 page Kickstarter story to also be printed in the first issue. There will be a variant cover by Robert Atkins, and a pinup in the interiors done by Shannon Gallant. The elevator pitch of the story: Jami Taylor is a college student going to school for graphic design. Her parents are famous scientist/inventor, Dr. Everett Taylor, and world traveling interior designer, Veronica Taylor. Even with successful parents, Jami has always worked hard to make her own mark in the world. This drive and her spirit of adventure came from her grandmother, Patricia Taylor, who explored the world to help those in need. Jami’s never give up attitude became critical when she found herself victim to sabotage in her father’s lab. This left her with incredible powers that will lead her to a much larger world. The first issue is an origin story, but layered in the dialogue and the images, you’ll find hints to legacy, mythical beings, alternate dimensions, and more. While this is the start of a new adventure, as Jami would say, “That’s not how this story ends!”
