We spoke to the creator of the steampunk/ western graphic novel Robert to get the inside info on this cool new comic project now funding on IndieGogo
Your current project Robert is funding on Indiegogo. What is Robert about?
ROBERT is the scifi, steampunk western adventure graphic novel of the future...today!
Robert takes place about 100 years after the events of Y3K, a devastating event that wiped out all of earths technology and forced the humans to hide away in bunkers and survive now a post apocalyptic earth.
However a miraculous event occurs when the robot labor force of earth Reboot and wonder the earth without a purpose. Without a purpose these robots create a new purpose for themselves off of the movies, tv shows, and books that we gain our personalities off of. 100 years after Y3K we meet Robert, Charles, and Eastwood, a gang of misfits that end up killing 2 of Ramóns (leader of the western bot gang) goons. Now Robert Charles and Eastwood are on a cross country road trip to escape the Western Bot Gang and the bounty on their heads!
Is Robert a stand alone tale, or can we maybe expect to see more of him and his band in the future?
The plan is to hopefully make Robert a trilogy. I already have ideas for what to add or make for the future slate of books.
You are handling every aspect of Robert’s creation, from writing, to art, to fulfillment. How has taking on all of that work been for you so far?
So far taking on all the responsibilities of the book feels great. In terms of time to produce the books it obviously takes time especially being the soul artist on the book. However it means I can ensure the artwork is up to the standards I truly want them to be.
Beyond this campaign, what does the future hold for you?
The future is made not ensured. So for the time being I’m going to keep doing my best to make ROBERT a reality.
