The comic book industry may be in a holding position, but that hasn’t stopped creators from working on their own creator-owned work and launching Kickstarter campaigns.
Jimmy Palmiotti (Painkiller Jane, Harley Quinn, Jonah Hex) and Dave Johnson (100 Bullets, Red Son) just launched their 13th Kickstarter with the crew at PAPERFILMS . This new project brings together some of the top talents in the field to present to you our 40-page first issue of an ADULTS ONLY comic mini-series called POP KILL!
Written by Palmiotti and Johnson, the comic will be illustrated by the amazing Juan Santacruz (Painkiller Jane, Twilight Experiment ) with colors by Brian Reber (X-Men, Bloodshot), lettering by Sean Konot (Aliens, Aliens vs Predator) and the brilliant design by John J Hill, the man responsible for so many great projects there are too many to list, but for the PAPERFILMS projects, he designed the Painkiller Jane, Hardcover and the Killing Time In American hardcover.
The story takes place in a world where the two dominant and competing Cola companies, each worth billions, are owned by former Siamese twins who are now separated and have grown to hate each other so much they hire assassins, saboteurs, and espionage personnel to meddle with each other on a daily basis. This is the story about brotherly love run afoul, and the people they enlist to do their dirty work.
Meet the beautiful DINA DELUX, a scientist in the Fizz division at POPSO COLA. She’s on the verge of creating a formula that will make soda 50% fizzier, keeping it carbonated longer than any other brand on the market. A breakthrough like this would put all the competition out of business in a heartbeat.
When Popso’s main rival FIZZ ONE COLA hear the rumors about the discovery, they activate their best man, JON PYLE, an oversexed mercenary, to take care of the situation. His orders are to convince Dina to switch sides, and if that fails, to eliminate her. However, after they meet the attraction is undeniable and a third option kicks in, one which triggers repercussions from BOTH sides.
