Indie Comics Underground had the chance to talk with Indie Comics artist and letterer extraordinaire Eric Weathers about his project Battle Brick Road - Now In Demand on Indiegogo
the yellow brick road". So, along with her cybernetic drone TOTO, she discovers the mythical land of Oz and sets on the path to find her dad. With battle-hardened friends in tow.
We're also pulling inspiration and references from movies like Mad Max, Book of Eli, and Planet of the Apes. Games like the aforementioned Division title, as well as Titanfall, Destiny, and Bioshock all lend some inspiration in one way or the other.
You've unlocked quite a few stretch goals on this project, with only two more listed goals to go. You must be extremely happy with the success of this campaign.
We are completely blown away by the support we've seen on this project. Crowdfunding can be unpredictable, to say the least, and the amount of backers who've come out to support this project has been nothing short of amazing. It's our hope that the enthusiasm continues into the rest of the series. Obviously, that means we have to make one phenomenal story. Which we believe we're doing!
With this book being so successful, does that mean we can expect another trip to Oz in the future?
100%! The plan is to have 4 books to tell this entire story. In book one, Operation Zephyr, we see just the beginning of Thea's journey. We'll meet the Scarecrow, here, too. Book two is when the whole team will be together. Thea, Scarecrow, Tin Man, and Lion... and let's not forget TOTO!
When it's all said and done, Battle Brick Road will clock in over 220 pages. Roughly 56 per book. Zeb and I are extremely excited to get this story out there. There is plenty of action and a lot of heart in these pages. We're telling a character-driven, action story. A re-telling of The Wizard of Oz, that we hope will surprise and entertain.
