Hey, look at this new thing I’m working on

You ever get a hankerin’ to read about a dysfunctional band of “heroes” who are the main problem that needs to be stopped before it dooms the whole kingdom?

Oh, I’m sorry, how embarrassing. Did you think I was talking about the classic webcomic 8-bit Theater?

You fool. You absolute moron.

No, I’m talking about the all-new sensation…

Our main characters are a lovable troupe of circus performers who are actually petty criminals using their circus to distract slack-jawed rubes from being pickpocketed for a few days until the troupe disappears in the night before they’re suspected of wrongdoing. And then they start the scam all over again in the next village!

ARISE, YE SKELETON KING is the story of how that scheme goes bad, then goes real good, and then nearly brings about a new age of doom and death.

If you’re the kind of trash goblin who loves a story about other trash goblins who catastrophe their way straight to the top — and if you’re reading this then sorry to say, yeah, you are — then this is the story for you!

It’s written by me and ATOMIC ROBO editor Lee Black, drawn by Escher Cattle, and lettered by Tess Stone. We’re running a Kickstarter for the first chapter. It’ll get you 40 pages of bickering jerks plus lots of other goodies. Check out the vid, our rewards, the stretch goals, you know the drill.
