Zip #2 Kickstarter Launch

In issue 2…

Zip’s second issue explores a strange and dangerous quirk of Zip’s powers that she has struggled with since childhood: a release of high energy generated by her body’s speed, which makes her touch explosive in stressful situations.

Zip’s control over her powers are challenged when she clashes with a kidnapper out to settle an old score. The stories about him say he’s so skilled in the martial arts that there is no attack he cannot evade and no technique he cannot counter. They call him: Mr Untouchable.

But are Zip and this deadly stranger more alike than they think? Follow our new campaign so that you can find out!

Issue 2’s new rewards:

As with our first campaign, you’ll be able to get print and digital copies of Zip #2. If you missed our first issue, you’ll also be able to get a copy of Zip #1!

On the theme of expanding on our previous campaign’s physical rewards, backers of Zip #2 will be able get an A3 poster and a sticker pack with their pledge.

PLUS because of the popularity of issue #1’s Mach 4 tier: all backers of Zip #2 whose pledge includes a reward will have a thank you credit, not only on and our social media pages, but also ALSO in the pages of Zip #2 itself.

How our backer credits looked in the pages of Zip #1

Since our first campaign showed a tendency for our backers to gravitate towards having a personal touch added to their comic, we’re also introducing a new reward where backers can get their copy signed by me (Zip writer: Mike Scrase) with a handwritten personalised message or doodle.

If you liked Zip #1, I’m sure you’ll love Zip #2. San and Ferran have outdone themselves this time, and with the foundations of the comic’s premise and themes laid down in the first issue, in the second issue I’ve really been able focus even more on exploring what makes the characters tick.

So get excited: and follow the campaign here!
