This week’s edition of Fanboy Comics’ Kickstarter Report highlights Gateway Runners #1, a brand new comic book by the folks at Nerd Nation, a podcasting group that is again venturing into the exciting world of comic book publishing. Gateway Runners #1 is a fast-paced, character-driven adventure about a future where Earth has taken its first steps into a larger universe in light of its massive overpopulation. With Mars terraformed and colonized, the population problem is somewhat lessened; however, Mars sorely lacks needed technology and medical supplies, and Earth suffers from a lack of natural land on which to plant. Is there anything that can save these two planets, and all of humanity? Their only hope may be . . . the Gateway Runners. In order to bring this high speed sci-fi story to life, Nerd Nation needs your help!
If funded, the 28-page, full-color comic book will be the first of a four-issue miniseries. The project will bring together writer Gene Hoyle (Solestar, Elan Vital) and artist Ashley Lanni (Verge #1, Aspire).
Be sure to visit the Gateway Runners Kickstarter page, and don’t forget to check out the backer rewards, which include signed copies of the book, signed variant covers, a chance to be drawn into the book, and more! The Kickstarter campaign will close on Wednesday, July 16th, so be sure to donate soon!
