What is Ship Jumper?
Ship Jumper is a free, online, +18 homoerotic webcomic starring Piper, an enthusiastic sailor in the navy of his country of Clochette. They are at war with the country of Lymeswold, and after their ship is destroyed in a battle, Piper and his Captain, Ellis, find themselves stranded on a seemingly deserted island. Besides having to fight for their survival, Piper soon discovers that the island is full of strange and mysterious creatures, as well as an unexpected fellow survivor from the wreck with a particular interest in him...
I’m hoping to utilize Indiegogo as a pre-ordering system for the Ship Jumper book! When I started this comic I always envisioned it as a physical book in the end. I like owning comics and reading something that’s tangible in my hands. I currently generate no revenue off of Ship Jumper. I’m doing it 100% for the LOVE baby~ Reaching this funding goal will allow me to print a high quality run of the comic which I hope to debut at the MOCCA festival in NYC this April.
Okay, so just how rad is this book going to be?
Super rad! This book will include both Volumes One and Two of Ship Jumper combined into one 110 page ‘omnibus’ edition! That’s 110 full color pages!
It will be printed on matte coated 85 lb paper in color for the interior pages and have a luxurious matte finish 10pt cover. So a really nice, high quality book on par with trade paperbacks you’d find at your local comic store.
But OF COURSE there will also be fabulous book-only extras!
-A reworked and COMPLETELY re-colored Volume One!
As you may have noticed on the comic site, many of the Volume One pages posted now are not the originals but have some tweaked and updated art. Volume One will continue to be available in B&W online, but it will be presented with more redrawn art and in color ONLY in the print edition. Check out the example before & after panels below~
Two scenes, one from Volume One and one from Volume Two have an additional page added! Both extended scenes are rated +18 and will never appear online.
-A 10 page BONUS comic!
10 pages of pure silly, sexy, fluff featuring our three heroes- Piper, Ellis and Rhinston. This +18 bonus comic will ONLY be available in the book and will never appear online.
I don’t want to give too much away, but here's one of the sketches~
-Extra sketches, scripts from 2 short cut scenes that didn’t quite make it into Volume 1 or 2, plus some behind the scenes work in progress thumbnails and pictures.
