DUE TO MASSIVE DEMAND – GWAR: ORGASMAGEDDON, a fun and blood-drenched 4-issue full-color comic book series now on Kickstarter, unveils a ton more new and exciting limited edition rewards to bestow upon loyal backers.  New rewards include a second Kickstarter exclusive GWAR T-shirt, signed art and merchandise from the band, original painted art from the band, and very rare prints of new GWAR art from artists Stephen Blickenstaff (the artist behind the iconic CRAMPS “Bad Music for Bad People” album cover art), Chris Pyrate, and Tom Neeley.  More art to be revealed later this week from artist Kyle Strahm. 

The comic series is blowing up Kickstarter, raking in a whopping $32,000 in less than two weeks, and is written by shock rock legends GWAR, co-writer Matt Miner (Toe Tag Riot, Critical Hit), artist Jonathan Brandon Sawyer (Welcome Back, Critical Hit), colorist Marissa Louise (RoboCop, Escape from New York), letterer Taylor Esposito (The Paybacks, Red Hood and the Outlaws) and editor Brendan Wright (Archie vs. Predator, Grindhouse: Doors Open at Midnight).

 

“Seeing the incredibly positive reaction to the GWAR Kickstarter has been tremendous,” said co-writer Matt Miner.  “Making comics with my favorite band is like a dream.  A fever dream where I’m surprisingly okay to be choking on my own blood while showered with alien jizz, but a dream nonetheless.”

 

Having already violated the art, music, and film worlds, now infamous scumdogs GWAR are coming for your comic books!  Do you need to be a GWAR fan to love this series?  Hell no!  There’s loads of laughs, violence, fun, and irreverent social satire for everyone to enjoy!

 

Trampling through the past after being trapped in time by the cold and calculating Mr. Perfect, GWAR fights and kills and kills and KILLS, slogging their way through human history in a torrent of gore, blood, bile, and other assorted bodily fluids the way only the most famous satirical heavy metal band from the depths of outer space can.

 

Each issue will also feature art and story contributions from GWAR members themselves, starting with pieces by BOB GORMAN (Bonesnapper the Cave Troll) and MATT MAGUIRE (Sawborg Destructo).

 

The Kickstarter can be found at GWARKICKSTARTER.COM and it ends on November 25, 2016!  Kickstarter is all-or-nothing funding so it must hit goal by November 25th to be able to make the project.

Fresh off their amazing appearance on the “Howard Stern Wrap Up Show” where they performed the Electric Comicbook (Howard Stern’s Middle School Band) classic “Silver Nickels, Golden Dimes”, GWAR has once again returned to The AV Club to take part in their “Undercover Series”.

This marks GWAR’s record-breaking 5th appearance at The AV Club, where for (four) years running they won the title of best cover of the year.  This of course was accomplished with their covers of Kansas, Billy Ocean, Pet Shop Boys and Cyndi Lauper classics. This year the Intergalactic Overlords plan on taking the championship for the fifth time!

On this particular visit, GWAR gets started with a little bit of “Foreplay” from Boston, before getting political with their take on AC/DC’s “If You Want Blood.” And since today is Election Day, and we are all tired of hearing about it, your Lords and Masters invited Trump and Clinton to duke it out in person, and we are sure the long suffering American public will be pleased with the outcome!  Watch GWAR lay waste to the AV Club yet again HERE!

Following this triumph, GWAR will return to their Antarctic Fortress for the winter as they work on their new album and first release featuring the Berserker Blothar.  More details will be made available soon.  Stay tuned Human Scum!

One more thing, don’t fret Bohabs!  GWAR would not leave you without something special for Record Store Day this year.  That’s right, on Record Store Day (11/25/17) AKA Black Friday, GWAR will release a limited edition picture disc called “Black Friday” featuring their covers of Billy Ocean’s “Get Outta My Dreams, Get Into My Car” and “West End Girls” from The Pet Shop Boys.  “Get outta My Dream’s Get Into My Car” will be on Side A (Oderus).  This was Dave Brockie AKA Oderus Urungus’ final recording with GWAR.  Side B (Blothar) “West End Girls” was the first recording by GWAR featuring new singer Blothar.

Hail GWAR
