No, this isn't a pitch for you to fund the indiscriminate killing of indigenous peoples by flying robot death machines. You already pay taxes for that.
Drones is a real mindfuck of a comic written by Chris Lewis with pencils by Bruno Oliveira, colors by Cabral, letters by E.T. Dollman, and editing by The Outhouse's own Jon Hogan. I had the pleasure of reading it, and I really enjoyed it, in the same way that I used to enjoy dropping acid before school in tenth grade. The closest thing I can compare it to is Matt Fraction's Casanova, based purely on the combination of espionage action and complete insanity, but that's not really doing it justice, because Drones employs much more liberal use of goats.
Are you interested yet? Why don't I let a quote from the Kickstarter explain it:
This five-issue miniseries follows two Predator drone operators who hunt Taliban insurgents in Afghanistan from the safety of a base outside of Las Vegas, Nevada. After a failed mission, the war hits home in a bizarre journey that will take them from a terrorism-themed hotel to a drone-filled sky over the Strip. As part of a stage show you’ve just got to see to believe, Las Vegas starts to resemble Afghanistan, and the drone operators must confront the absurd nature of a war where terror and entertainment have begun to blur.
In addition to our two drone operators, we have a pancake-loving terrorist turned playwright, a loveable expert in improvised explosive devices, five well dressed assassins, a goat who just might know a thing or two about kung fu, an acrobatic special forces troupe called the Cirque du SEALs, surveillance up the wazoo, and a new kind of poppy that’s going to blow some minds.
So yeah, what I said, right?
We reviewed the first two issues last year, and you can read that here.
The comic is complete, and now they're running a Kickstarter to publish a trade paperback. They're only looking for $3000 and they're past the halfway point. There are some pretty cool rewards you can get for pledging, and it would make us look good if you can give this a boost. Now I'll post the cover that's most likely to turn you on sexually.
No, dammit! Not the one with the goat! Who put that there?!
There we go. Mmmm.
Now head over to Kickstarter and chip in some cash, for fuck's sake. Could you do any less?!
