THE ROMAN STARS - Caesar's Conquest of the Galaxy

Created by Iván Brandon

Uneasy with normal daily life, Julius Caesar spends his later years chasing his own myth as he leads his army through the stars.

Beseeching the kindness of (mostly) strangers as our The Roman Stars 2 reaches its final week.
20 days ago – Wed, Apr 03, 2024 at 11:32:52 AM

Today there's a week left of the campaign for the 2nd part, the ending of a book we worked on for years, that has become tangible through the kindness of (mostly) strangers (hi!) who we could not be more grateful for. We reached 15 countries with volume 1. Probably more with part 2.  In a world where it's unreasonably hard to put food on your plate through our stories, in comics especially, you folks have made both of these campaigns successful beyond our imaginations. 

We're writing today to let you know the 2nd campaign is ending, and if you want to join us for the end of the story you helped us start, you can join ushere

And if you can spread the word and help us get more people to read this story we're so proud of, you'd be giving life to something we think is really special. Either way, thank you for everything. 

 Sorry for gushing. 

-Iván, V, Tom, Aditya, Greg and the legions of outer space centurions

THE ROMAN STARS 2 IS LIVE - get involved!
about 1 month ago – Tue, Mar 12, 2024 at 09:20:37 AM

Today only we're upgrading every book pledge to a SIGNED edition and every bundle of 1 & 2 (including copies of 1 pledged in the previous campaign) will receive a FREE SLIPCASE.

You don't have to do anything, we will manually add the slipcase to your survey in backerkit if you've backed both. 

Thank you so much for your pledges and please spread the word!

THE ROMAN STARS 2 LAUNCHES TOMORROW - here are our 24hr launch day exclusives
about 1 month ago – Mon, Mar 11, 2024 at 09:57:09 AM

We're launching the campaign for the 2nd volume of The Roman Stars tomorrow, which ends Julius Caesar's story. We have 2 HUGE exclusives for Day 1 backers:

  1. All physical book pledges will be upgraded to SIGNED editions 
    (first 24 hours only + limit 5 per person)
  2. All bundles of 2 physical copies of both volumes (1 of each, including pledges from the previous campaign) will be upgraded to SLIPCASE EDITIONS at no additional cost. (This means if you already have a copy of v1 your pledge for v2 will automatically be considered a BUNDLE and receive a FREE slipcase) 
    (first 24 hours only + limit 5 per person)

The kickstarter algorithm rewards a big first day, so we're pulling out all the stops to reward you for joining us again. Here's a design mockup of the slipcase:

As ever, we are incredibly grateful for all of your support for our weird little DIY space empire.
