Anaseed Man is a British comics creator responsible for comics such a GART and Slamurai Warriors. His latest project, a goblin-fuelled adventure called Stinkhorn City Battle, is currently being crowd funded on KICKSTARTER.
STARBURST: What is Stinkhorn City Battle?
Anaseed Man: Stinkhorn City Battle is a fantasy-punk action comic in the vein of ‘80s movies like Escape from New York and The Warriors. But with goblins.
I've always liked fantasy creatures like orcs, ogres, trolls and goblins, but I've never really been a fan of the high-fantasy settings they tend to inhabit. So I thought it would be a fun idea to take those beings and put them in a far future, dystopian world full of giant mushrooms.
What are your influences?
All sorts of things. The main two, however, are ‘80s post-apocalyptic actions movies like Mad Max... and Dragon Ball Z, that was my visual diet while growing up.
They don't get enough love! Goblins are never really used as protagonists; they usually just get kicked around by humans, or elves, of other non-primary coloured things. That and I just think goblins are neat.
Is the future of comics in crowdfunding?
I think so! It's really opened doors for comics. It means people can self-publish more ambitious projects that aren't just zines - not that there's anything wrong with zines. Not only that, it means people can get their stories out there without having to rely on gambling with pitching to a publisher.
How different is it from other projects you’ve done?
It's the first self-contained story I've worked on. And the first one I'll be producing entirely in colour. Most of the time my comics are action-based, but this one's going to be more full on.
How can we help?
By spreading the word! The more people that know about the Stinkhorn City Battle Kickstarter, the better! The odd pledge here and there wouldn't hurt either.
