Sam Hart writes,

I'm a Brazil based UK-born comic artist, celebrating 10 years since first working on Starship Troopers with Tony Lee and a non-stop, bumpy comic-art career since. With Tony I've published Outlaw: The Legend of Robin Hood, Excalibur: The Legend of King Arthur and Messenger: The Legend of Joan of Ark, all for Walker Books in the UK, and with Antony Johnston I've done Coldest City for Oni Press in the US. To mark the date I'm putting together a small preview/re-view comic with another friend, Will, a very well-known and respected indie-comics author here in Brazil, who is also celebrating 10 years in the biz.



The comic will be called 2×10! The preview will be the first 10-pages from our next creator-owned graphic novels, to be released in Brazil in 2015. We've invited a couple of well-published comic creator friends, Spacca and Cadu Simões, to help out with scripts and dialogues. For the re-view part each one will do a sketchbook/previous works 12-page section.

It will be a total of 48 pages (22 pages each plus a poster) and in Portuguese. We are looking to fund the comic via a Brazilian Kickstarter-style collective funding website.


Even if you are not fluent in Portuguese, but like the subject matter (superheros, Amazon jungle, steampunk adventure, indie projects), you can help by buying prints, t-shirts and commissions, or my previously mentioned books published in English!

We're having great fun with the stories: I'm doing a twist on the traditional National Superhero and long suffering indie-style comic production duo (two stories in one, kinda), and Will is doing a steampunk alternative reality Jules Verne meets Brazilian billionaire adventure. Both stories, by chance, are mostly set in the Amazon jungle.


Deadline, Bleedingcool and links:

We have already fully funded the Black&White version, so all rewards are guaranteed, and now have 10 days to reach the extended goal for the Full Colour comic!

For Bleedingcool backers we will do a special shout-out in public tourist attractions around São Paulo! To be recorded and uploaded to YouTube when the comic is released.


The comic is 5 dollars, t-shirts are 25 and A3-size commissions are 150, plus postage.
