Jason Martin — creator of current popular comics like the long running Vampblade ongoing series, and the recently debuted Amalgama: Space Zombie, as well as past works such as PRINCE-S STARthief, Night of the 80s Undead, and more — announces his latest Kickstarter, Swiss Army Woman. Which can be best described as Cherry Darling meets Batman: The Animated Series by way of Switzerland!!
This latest Kickstarter is another in Martin’s Pulp Girls series, a collection of pulp and genre inspired concepts with death-defying female protagonists and featuring different amazing and popular artists. Swiss Army Woman features the awesomely kinetic artwork of popular Italian artist, Marco Maccagni (Zombie Tramp, Vampblade, Road Trip to Hell, Monster M.D.) on interiors, along with several talented cover artists!
Upon losing her leg in a freak Olympic super-g ski accident in the Swiss Alps, a young woman is outfitted with top secret (yet all too familiar) technology, and becomes a one woman weapons program for a clandestine military from a supposedly neutral country! Now, instead of returning to her normal life, she proudly fights to defend Swiss interests at home and abroad. Chocolate Barons, Evil Bankers, and Giant Alien Clocks… all bent on world domination!! Good thing the Swiss Army have a special operative with every weapon, tool, or gadget their country requires… all attached to her right thigh! She is any tool the Swiss need, for any job her nation requires…
She is… THE SWISS ARMY WOMAN!
Martin says of the book, “Fans of beloved action cartoon franchises of the 80s and 90s will love what we’re doing here. Taking Switzerland and its rich iconography and mining that for our setting and characters. With a colorful rogue’s gallery like you’d find in Batman TAS’ Gotham, or the iconic foes from G.I. Joe A Real American Hero or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. It’s all very rich to play with thematically, and really lets the character and concept shine. All-out fun in a book chock full of crazy cartoon action, that crafts something new from a myriad of popular touchstones!”
The Kickstarter is live now with base rewards such as digital and print versions of the book, as well as variant covers from popular artists, and other unique rewards. Having already surpassed its initial goal, the funding is now onto stretch rewards. Swiss Army Woman is ending soon, but available through February 12th on Kickstarter:
