Bubbles O’Seven in The Girl In The Golden Cage KickStarter campaign now live
From the KickStarter page:
PREVIOUSLY, IN BUBBLES O’SEVEN…
MI7 have created an ally to their cause – Bubbles O’Seven – to bring back to the fold the agents of the SpIWIT Project gone rogue around the world.
So far, he has only retrieved Mr Fluffy, who is currently being held under high level security at an undisclosed MI7 location.
Dr O and Gareth the Gorilla are missing (presumed dead) while the self-annointed Snow King made good his escape. Bubbles O’Seven’s MI7 associate, Miss Prime, whose torn jumpsuit was the only remains discovered washed up on the beach, has fallen prey to unforgiving Japanese sea waters.
Or has she….?
Mr Milton and Mr Keynes – aka Specimens 302 and 303 – are Bubbles’ next mission targets; two lemurs with a combined IQ of 273 (though to be fair most of that figure sits in Mr Milton’s head) and a fast developing knack for making mischief and attempting to destabilise economies.
Which is why Bubbles now finds himself in their last known location – Thailand – according to Crustacean Intel Sources, tracking his targets who have taken it upon themselves to create a gap in the rice market which they can exploit for their own ends, by stockpiling the harvest and releasing a parasite into the Paddy fields to infect the current crop.
Meanwhile, back at MI7, things are taking a darker turn and Bubbles is about to find his loyalties tested. Good thing he’s got his pipe and a level head on his side…
ON TEAM 511 FOR THIS MISSION
THE SPYMASTER (ARTIST & COLOURIST)
Documenting events this time round is Wilfling. We think their work speaks for itself though if you want to feast your eyes further, online portfolios can be accessed at the links above.
THE CRYPTOLOGIST (LETTERS)
Mike Stock has lettered every Bubbles mission to date. He’s got what he takes to meet the exacting demands of MI7.
THE SANITISER (EDITOR-IN-CHIMP)
Co-creator Matt Rooke is also a common thread throughout every mission. He’s drawn one, coloured some, edited every mission and produces rather fine promo videos.
THE HANDLER (WRITER)
Gráinne McEntee writes the words that direct our Simian Agent to where he needs to be to get the job done. THAT IS ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW…
THE SLEEPER (COVER ARTIST)
Our cover artist is errr… sleeping. We’ll let you know when she’s done with her naptime.
THE RAVEN (STRETCH GOAL)
Charlie Hogg has been a regular feature in each mission too, joining forces with Kieran Squires (http://kigo.co.uk) on poster pinup duty, (the latter will be working his usual magic there.) This time, Charlie is poised to produce an 8-page intermission piece – A Night At The Opera – should we exceed our initial goal.
The Kickstarter is the fifth mission for Bubbles O’Seven. The campaign includes digital and printed pledge levels, as well as levels where you can get the previous missions.
