Artist Luke Balmer-Kemp teams up with writer Jonathan Stevenson for The Disconauts, a far-out tale of disco space travelers righting wrongs and funking up bad guys across the galaxy.
‘The Disconauts (The Boogie, Kitty Kat, Starfox, Dude Dynamite and The Whizz) take on the mysterious new fiancé of The Dancing Queen, known only as Rasputin, Rusha’s Greatest Love Machine.’
The Disconauts Kickstarter campaign launched today and runs for 30 days. Backer Rewards are pretty standard fare, including digital and physical editions of The Disconauts #1, an exclusive Kickstarter variant cover, and original artwork by Luke Balmer-Kemp.
You might recognize Stevenson’s name from Titan Comics, where he helmed their Statix Press imprint and edited Doctor Who: The Thirteenth Doctor, Tank Girl, Wolfenstein, and more. The Disconauts marks his first full-length comics project as a writer.
“I’ve worked on a lot of short stories for various anthologies, so taking the leap to full-length issues felt like the next logical step,” said Stevenson. “This Kickstarter campaign is to fund issue #1, but if it’s successful then we have three more issues ready to go.”
Balmer-Kemp adds “We wanted to do something big, fun and silly. The Disconauts is about making people smile. It’s a love letter to the animated TV shows we grew up with, like He-Man and Bravestarr.”
