Kickstarter has become a go-to place to find the next great comic. It’s given writers and artists a place to bring their dreams to life, and given fans a place to support the medium they love.
The story follows two music obsessed, human standard, twenty somethings, Roy and Kev, who find themselves stuck working in a government job scheme amongst robots, altered humans, machine intelligences and an ageing population that have taken all the best jobs.
An unfortunate set of events leads the protagonists to become poster boys for a group of neu-human extremists who want to evolve all humans, and destroy the sentient machines sharing the planet. Roy and Kev really just want to make music, wear nice trainers, party, and do whatever minimum work they need to keep getting their Citizen’s Wage, but they find themselves having to deal with dangerous and surreal situations using the limited skills they have.
