Are you on the lookout for a new indie adventure? Well, check out Prospects (now with Prospects #2 up for preview) from indie publisher Band of Bards. In the series, the town of Ridgeville has been stuck in the middle of a 150-year-old battle between two mad scientists, and former colleagues, Edwin Grabowski and Victor Farsimov.
Both claim to have figured out the secret of immortality and created armies of zombies and cyborgs using their respective methods. The scientists have waged a war for so long within the town, that the townspeople now consider it an honor to be abducted by either one of them in their quest for glory.
Anyone who shows any bit of potential, be it brains, brawn, or anything in between, will be captured by one of the scientists by the time they are 25 years old. This brings us on to 30 year old Colin Bates, who isn’t one of the prospects. He has been selected by no one, not by the scientists, girls, or even friends.
He spends most of his days watching TV in his basement, trying to avoid doing odd jobs for his Grandma and her posse. Yet everything changes when a notorious terrorist, intent on destroying both scientists, appears in Colin’s basement, begging him to take over his legacy.
Prospects #2 is written and created by Maxwell Majernik and features art from Jean Franco. The second in the all-new a nine-issue miniseries continues the absurdist political satire. Now live on Kickstarter, if you’re a fan of Rick and Morty, Shaun of the Dead, or Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, this is one to look out for.
The Kickstarter project includes issues one through three with options for backing including digital only or print and digital as well as other goodies to rep your Band of Bards love – oh! and variant covers of course.
