Rylend Grant's THE JUMP #2 is live on Kickstarter!
3 months ago – Mon, Mar 22, 2021 at 06:03:10 PM

Hey Peacekeepers,

  Just a heads up and a HELL YEAH here to let you know that ISSUE 2 of of my kick-you-in-the-teeth astral projection thriller - THE JUMP - is now LIVE on Kickstarter and we've already been choosen as a PROJECT WE LOVE! Head on over HERE and check out all of the fun/high jinx!

Did you miss out on Issue 1? NO WORRIES! This is your chance to catch up/hop aboard the fun train!

The first Issue of THE JUMP was brought to life right here on Kickstarter last year and received RAVE reviews.

You will not BELIEVE what we have in store for you for Issue 2! This one is going to MELT YOUR FACE! So, please check the campaign out and come make the JUMP with us!

THE JUMP is, of course, brought to you by me - Rylend Grant - and artist Fabio Alves, colorist Edson Ferreira, & letterer HdE... the very same team that brought you the dark and decidedly wicked superhero noir BANJAX (published Action Lab: Danger Zone).

BANJAX was nominated for FOUR Mike Weirngo Comic Book Awards in 2020 (including BEST SERIES along-side BITTER ROOT and SOMETHING's KILLING THE CHILDREN) and the critics raved:

“This is the most amazingly well done first issue of a series I have ever seen. Point blank. Period… You cannot read this and come out if the same way you went into it… So effin’ good.”(Steven Leitman, Reading with a Flight Ring)

“Banjax has all the action, violence, grit, and heart of a classic.” (David Pepose, Creator of Spencer & Locke)

“Quality, engrossing material embedded with a cinematic feel. Gifted storytelling and breathtaking artwork. Banjax will instantly have you screaming for more!” (Jason Bennett, PopCultHQ)

“Banjax hits incredibly hard. Intense, thought-provoking, wildly entertaining. It’s near perfect. For those looking for something unique, Issue #1 is a must-read.” (Charlie Chipman, The Brazen Bull)

“Riveting. Refreshing. Heart-breaking. Ultra-violent. Honestly, a bit unsettling. The artwork of Fábio Alves is everything a dark and gritty comic should embody. Edson Ferreira’s color work adds an extra punch to really emotional panels. Don’t miss out on this bloody good time! A+” (Andrew Huard, You Don’t Read Comics)

“Holy crap this is good. This book hits all the right notes. It’s marvelously done, such a compelling story. It’s the best comic I’ve read in a long time. Honestly? Bendis could take some notes here.”(ComicCast Podcast)

So, I promise you, you are in for a real treat here with THE JUMP #2. CHECK THE CAMPAIGN OUT NOW!

Thanks! I hope all is well with you and yours.

Hello all,

  Well, those books just keep on landing and I am seeing some truly inspiring things on social media. Just a reminder, I'm going to give something very special to a few of you who post pictures of your books and tag me (@rylendgrant) on social media... more bonkers the better.

Here are some early highlights for you guys:


It's always a delight to see man, child and beast enjoying your comic books...

This baby celebrates my ENTIRE catalog...

A touching father/son moment (brings a tear to my eye)...

This young man knows the score...

Then there's this poor soul...

This pro wrestler seems to likes his book...

...How about you?

DON'T FORGET ABOUT THE JUMP #2!

Just a reminder that my next Kickstarter endeavor - Issue 2 of my kick-you-in-the-teeth astral projection thriller THE JUMP - launches here on March 22nd. CLICK HERE to follow along/receive launch notifications.
