‘Bust’ is a webcomic from Edinburgh-based creator Dave Cook and artist Chris O’Toole that just hit its Kickstarter goal with an impressive 25 days to go.
By meeting its target, the series will now receive a full print run as well, and given the interesting premise, we’re definitely looking forward to getting our hands on a copy.
Here’s the official blurb;
After failing to flee America, and the roaming mutated freaks and gangs that roam its streets, Jack and his family find themselves in the last safe city in the country, a walled off metropolis governed by business magnate Eddie Scott.
Things look good for a while, but Jack eventually crosses Eddie and finds himself thrown into a string of gladiatorial battles against the wasteland’s worst monstrosities in order to fight for his freedom.
Will he survive and see his family again? If he does, what comes next? Will Jack turn to blood and slaughter to claim his revenge against Eddie and his flock, or can he make peace and find some sense of sanity in a world gone mad?
Some of the stretch goals include a cover by game artist Paul Canavan and a second print run of the series to help fund issue two, so head on over to the Kickstarter Page and see if you might be interested in pledging.
Also, if you need further convincing, you can read the first thirteen pages of Bust – plus more as they become available – RIGHT HERE.
Another really promising local project, and one we’ll be keeping our eyes on with great interest in the future.
