Joe Mulvey’s SCAM, published by ComixTribe, is seeking the deluxe hardcover treatment via Kickstarter–and the collection includes stories written by THREE Comics Experience alums: Paul Allor, Amy Chu, and Rich Douek.
SCAM has been described as “X-Men meets Ocean’s Eleven.” It follows a team of super-powered grifters on the biggest con of their lives…taking down a Vegas casino and getting revenge on a former teammate who double-crossed them.
The Kickstarter campaign is to collect the ComixTribe mini-series into a deluxe over-sized 256-page hardcover collection, which also contains the never-before-released SCAMthology – 15 brand new SCAM stories by a handpicked crew of outstanding comic creators!
Regarding SCAMthology, Joe wrote on the Kickstarter page that he’s “assembled some of the most talented writers and artists making waves in creator-owned comics today, and asked them to play in the SCAM sandbox.”
The stories written by CE alums include:
“The Big Lie” written by CE alum Paul Allor (Strange Nation, TMNT, GI Joe), with art by Aaron Houston (Clockwork, Oxymoron) and color by Ryan Lee.
“Let’s Get This Party Started” written by CE alum Amy Chu (Girls Night Out), with art by Brian Shearer (GI Joe, William the Last) and color by Arsia Rozegar.
“A SCAM Fairy Tale” also written by Amy Chu, with art by CP Wilson, III (The Stuff of Legend, Wraith), Joe Mulvey (SCAM) and color by Ryan Lee.
“Guy Trouble” written by CE alum Rich Douek (Gutter Magic), with art by Joe Eisma (Morning Glories), and color by Hugo Froes.
The Kickstarter offers PDF and print versions, including a deluxe edition with a sketch by Joe. There’s also “high roller” and VIP packages that include bonus items like t-shirts, pint glasses, and even original art from the series! Plus, meeting stetch goals will unlock additional incentives.
There’s still time to back the SCAM Ultimate Collection Hardcover Graphic Novel!
Congrats to Paul, Amy, and Rich and good luck to Joe and everyone on the Kickstarter!
