Hello everyone,

For the past 5 years I’ve been serializing the popular sci-fi comic “Marooned - A Space opera in the wrong key” online. It’s the story of Captain John, a self-centered space pilot from Earth, and his sidekick Asimov, an automated garbage can turned into a genius robot.

Last week I Kickstarted a campaign to publish the whole 280-page book - plus 2 bonus digital books. The campaign was funded in 9 days flat, but we are pushing toward some cool stretch goals.

I would love it if you could give it a look. Find the campaign here:

LOL, the rush to 11 posts is as entertaining as any book.

It looks like an interesting concept, but can you post some samples here in lieu of sending us to Kickstarter?

The Artist's Corner of this site is like a weird, separate little world.

I'm with Nate. I'd be interested in seeing a couple of sample pages. The cover art and design doesn't look bad at all.

Yeah, I know - I wish I had known about this forum a lot sooner! Here's a few pages as examples. Marooned is humor/sci-fi/adventure. It's fun, it has drama and heart, and lots of silly moments, too. It's hard to capture that with only a few pages :)

You can actually start with one of the episodes in the middle of the run

Here's that strip, and 3 more
