Top of the Line
Editor's Note: Daniel McCloskey is a writer, artist, and the founder of Pittsburgh's The Cyberpunk Apocalypse, a writers' co-op that has hosted Quail Bell Magazine in the past. Here is an excerpt from an email he recently sent out to his friends, asking them to spread the word about his latest project. McCloskey was recently in a serious bicycle accident that landed him in the hospital. He has since returned home and is hard at work on his comic.
Top of the Line is the story of a kid growing into a hero, and in the process becoming a terrible human being. It's also kind of about a guy riding a bike and missing teeth (oddly) but this guy chops the heads off genetically engineered monsters with a sword.
The comic series is 8 issues, around 250 pages, features color issues and inserts, and will include pinup illustrations by artists like JIM RUGG, Nate McDonough, Kevin Czapiewski, Juan Fernandez, and Steph Neary.
Because of my wreck, and forthcoming dental bills, this Kickstarter for this project just got a lot more important for me, and I'm kind of nervous about it. Any help spreading the word would be really appreciated.
The Kickstarter is live now, but I'm doing an online 24 hour draw-a-thon to officially launch the comic from noon Nov 20th to noon Nov 21st with Pittsburgh local guest artists dropping by to announce limited bonus awards throughout that time. The whole thing will stream live on my website here.
The Kickstarter is here.
