Barrens #1 (Comic) Kickstarter

Project-Nerd Publishing is proud to partner with writer and co-creator CW Cooke as well as artist Bryan Timmins on our first original publication, Barrens.

Barrens, which is debuting as a three-part mini series, is set in post-apocalyptic America where the world’s population has dwindled due to virus and warfare. The remaining cities are well protected, inhabited by the wealthy, and spread out across the country. When these wealthy need something taken care of without question, they hire Esme Ford, because when the Barrens are involved, Esme Ford is the only one you can trust.

The debut issue will feature three different covers, including one from the series artist Bryan Timmins, one from popular pinup artist Andrew Tarusov, and one of cosplayer Erin Lei as the title character Esme Ford. All three covers are available separate or as a collectible three-pack.

The campaign also features prints, t-shirts, digital downloads, original artwork, creative team consultation, ad space for your brand, and even being drawn as a character in the series.

Anth always thought having superpowers would be wicked. When he got them he discovered being super isn’t easy. Going to school, fitting in socially, and trying to figure out girls is hard enough as it is without the added pressure of having a secret identity. How are you supposed to get your homework done when you’re always having to save the world?

Project-Nerd Publishing is introducing That Bulletproof Kid to North America through good new-fashioned crowdfunding. To generate interest, build revenue for the initial order, and to get things started, Kickstarter seemed like the obvious choice.

The campaign for That Bulletproof Kid #1 includes perks that range from $1 to $250 with fans able to get their hands on a digital copy of the That Bulletproof Kid #1 ($4), a physical copy of the That Bulletproof Kid #1 shipped ($7), prints (starting at $10), a t-shirt, and more.

You can find all the awesome perks for That Bulletproof Kid #1 on Kickstarter.

‘Clock Puncher’ Comic Series Announced

'Clock Puncher' Comic Series Announced

Denver, CO – October 8, 2015 – Project-Nerd Publishing is pleased to announce the ongoing comic series, Clock Puncher.

CW Cooke (SolitaryBarrens), JD Arnold, and Chris Fenoglio (Orphan Black) have teamed up to create a pleasantly unique comic series promising plenty of fun and excitement.

“The team has been firing on all cylinders and what we’ve put together is going to be incredible and fun,” commented Cooke. “And fun is the most important word to use when explaining Clock Puncher to people.”

Clock Puncher focuses on Dan Dade and his partner Trina Troma. While Trina is a completely capable soldier of action, Dan is more of an incompetent fool. Yet Dan is somehow an important person within the multiverse. Actually, Dan is the most important person in the multiverse. Due to unforeseen circumstances, these two become partners tasked with saving all of mankind.

“We’ve been putting it together for awhile now, and I think we’ve got some crazy fun things that people are really going to enjoy,” added Fenoglio.

Clock Puncher will be the final of four first wave titles from Project-Nerd Publishing, including another title CW Cooke will be working on, BarrensClock Puncher will be an ongoing publication with the hope to eventually publish in trade.

Cooke and Fenoglio will begin production this winter with a crowdfunding campaign in early 2016 expected to kick things off in time for issue number one to be available on the 2016 ProNerd Tour.

‘Barrens’ Comic Series Announced

'Barrens' Comic Series Announced

Denver, CO – October 5, 2015 – Project-Nerd Publishing announces its first original publication with Barrens.

Already in production, and set to debut in 2016 is Project-Nerd Publishing’s first original comic book creation, Barrens. Barrens will follow a strong female protagonist that will be based off the design of an original character created by cosplayer Erin Lei and Project-Nerd founder Iggy Michniacki.

“The unique character design was something we put a great deal of thought into. She had to have a good strong personality before we could consider her costume design,” mentioned Erin Lei. “In the end, I’m very happy with how she has turned out. She has a world of depth we are hoping comes through even in her design.”

Barrens, which will debut as a three-part mini series, is set in a post-apocalyptic setting where the world’s population has dwindled due to virus and warfare. The remaining cities are well protected, inhabited by the wealthy, and spread out across the country. When these wealthy need to be transported from one city to another, they hire an escort for protection. When they need something taken care of without question, they hire The Barrens. And when the barrens are involved, Esme Ford is the only one you can trust.

Established comic writer C.W. Cooke, best known for his original comic book series, Solitary, will write the series. Bryan Timmins and Michniacki will join Cooke.

“When Iggy asked me to be a part of Project-Nerd Publishing, I didn’t hesitate to jump in feet first and say yes, added co-creator and writer, CW Cooke. “I’ve gotten to know the Project-Nerd team over the years and their enthusiasm for comics and comic book conventions is infectious. Working alongside them and Bryan Timmins, another good friend and someone I’ve wanted to collaborate with for a long time, we’re going to make something magical.”

Although set to launch as a mini series, Project-Nerd Publishing hopes to continue Barrens as an ongoing series after the initial arc, further exploring an inspired yet wildly original world and a character that is capable of standing on her own.

Project-Nerd and Erin Lei will debut a live version of the character as part of Rocky Mountain Con’s CosArt competition on November 7th and 8th, featuring the art of Saro Hang and Bryan Timmins.
