Uncover Hidden Treasures in Highspot #2
Rob Jones’ Highspot #2 is about ready for print. As with issue #1, Jones needs your help through a brand-new Kickstarter campaign. Featuring lost artwork from a comic book legend, prepare to continue the search for history’s most important lost artifact- the body of Alexander the Great!
Written and Illustrated by Rob Jones
Additional art by Dick Giordano.
It is said that whoever finds the remains of the great ruler Alexander the Great can unite the earth and become the new emperor of the known world! Professional stunt woman and amateur adventurer Kate Carter is one step closer to finding the body of history’s greatest conqueror. But not everyone wants Alexander’s bones to be discovered as Carter’s team is ambushed by men dressed as if from ancient Macedonia!
This chapter of Highspot features lost artwork from the great Dick Giordano (Superman, Green Arrow, The Tomb of Dracula). Rob Jones was Giordano’s last art assistant before his death in 2010. At the time, Giordano was working on artwork for a biographical graphic novel on the life of Alexander the Great. Rather that let those pages be forever lost, Rob Jones has incorporated Giordano’s work into this swashbuckling story.
Highspot is a mix of historical drama, Indiana Jones and The West Wing. With the second of three issues complete, it would be a tragic waste to not help Highspot see it’s completion. As of press time, there’s just under 3 weeks left to contribute to Rob Jones’ Kickstarter campaign and there’s some great incentives for it’s backers!
Along with being able to get digital and print versions of the first two issues of Highspot, backers can commission a stunning piece of customer artwork from Rob Jones himself! A small handful of backers can even find themselves in the Highspot action as actual characters in the third and final issue of the series! But you’ll have to act fast as most of the commission incentives are extremely limited.
Kickstarter is a cutting-edge way for fans to support independent comic book creators. It’s not everyday that a chance comes along for comic collectors to get a chance to not only read but actually be a part of the action! Plus, by backing this project, you’ll be helping to put a capstone on the amazing legacy of the great Dick Giordano! Help Rob Jones bring both his vision and that of his mentor’s to life with your support of Highspot!
The Kickstarter for Highspot #2 ends on Wednesday, April 3rd, 2019 at 7:05pm EDT.
