GWARKICKSTARTER.COM

JUST LAUNCHED on Kickstarter – GWAR: ORGASMAGEDDON, a blasphemous and blood-drenched 4-issue full-color comic book series by shock rock legends GWAR, 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 (Batman Eternal, Red Hood and the Outlaws) and editor Brendan Wright (Archie vs. Predator, Grindhouse: Doors Open at Midnight).

The Kickstarter can be found at GWARKICKSTARTER.COM and it ends in 31 Days.

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.

“I’ve been a fan of GWAR more than half my life,” said writer Matt Miner.  “They’ve been one of my very favorite things since someone loaned 16-year-old me a cassette tape of SCUMDOGS OF THE UNIVERSE and my mind was warped for the better.  This is the coolest thing I’ve ever done aside from punking the Westboro Baptist Church, making them proclaim that my comics will ‘Split Hell wide open.’”

In addition to the main story, every issue contains extras – shorts featuring X-COPS (GWAR’s cult-favorite 1990s side project, lampooning corrupt police) and the follies of SAWBORG DESTRUCTO, GWAR’s fearsome but mostly incompetent nemesis from Planet Scumdogia.  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).

To entice pledges on the Kickstarter, the team has come up with a treasure trove of goodies to reward loyal backers.  Items range from comics and exclusive Kickstarter covers to limited edition T-shirts, original painted art on drum heads from GWAR themselves, painted baby GOR-GOR character dinosaurs, honest to God STAGE-USED GWAR PROPS, and tons of autographed merchandise, such as posters signed by the entire band, including the late, great Dave Brockie, who graced our puny human lives and made the world a much more fun place as the band’s ODERUS URUNGUS.

Again, the Kickstarter can be found at GWARKICKSTARTER.COM and it ends in 31 Days.  So contribute now!

News // No Comments

YCdWCWs

Following another extremely successful GWAR B-Q, your Lords and Masters are GWAR pleased to announce another round of tour dates for this October.  Joining them on the tour are Darkest Hour and Mutoid Man.  This run kicks off October 27th in Norfolk, VA and runs through October 30th in Washington, DC.  Tickets for the Washington DC show go on sale August 25th while Norfolk and Millvale shows go on sale this Friday August 26th.  Details on the Brooklyn show will be announced soon.

 

These new dates are in addition to their previously announced dates with Crowbar and Mutoid Man as well as their appearance at Riot Fest Chicago.  A completed list of dates can be found below.  It has also been confirmed that Sleazy P. Martini will be accompanying the band on all of these dates, who had the following to say:

 

“As manager of GWAR and America’s benevolent deep state dictator Sleazy P. Martini. I want to encourage as many Americans as possible to shun the false left-right dichotomy that is politics and make their voices heard by coming out to see GWAR defend their belts on tour this year. And while your vote will have no effect on the Presidential election this year you can take pleasure in watching Trump and Clinton fight to the death. So come out and support democracy by watching GWAR take on all comers in a political death match knowing that at least it’s not rigged… this time.”
