What if Dr. Strangelove created Godzilla? Timothy C. Ward interviews the creators of the upcoming World War Kaiju graphic novel in hopes that you’ll help support this awesome looking project on Kickstarter. Team Kaiju is Josh Finney (Titanium Rain, Utopiates), artist Patrick McEvoy (Call of Cthulhu, Game of Thrones), and Kat Rocha (01Publishing). They discuss what they love about the Kaiju genre, the world they’ve built in this story, making characters empathetic and the fun they’ve had adding humor to the story and building fun and story-interactive stretch goals to their Kickstarter campaign.
World War Kaiju –Kickstarter Campaign–
World War Kaiju is the story of an alternate history, one in which the atom bomb was never created and the ultimate weapon of mass destruction is the kaiju—fifty foot tall radioactive beasts spawned from the mysterious KAI-235 isotope. Follow the journey of one journalist as he teams up with a retired CIA operative to uncover the truth about the conspiracy behind the monsters and the men who plan to use them to dominate the world.
World War Kaiju is a tribute to the kaiju genre in all its forms (both high and low). The brainchild of sci-fi author Josh Finney, WWK is a love letter to the golden-age of kaiju cinema. It looks back to an era when the world loved atomic monsters, but feared the atomic bomb, and warps history in ways that only men in rubber suits can.
THE KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN
World War Kaiju is currently seeking support on Kickstarter. The campaign will be running from June to August. Team Kaiju needs a total of $15,000 to complete production of the art, and then print the book at the best quality possible. Our ultimate goal is to supply fans with a 200+ page hardcover edition of book one.

Adventures in SciFi Publishing would love to interview all of the authors with fun projects like World War Kaiju, but because of scheduling constraints, the best way to ensure your project gets on the show is to become a sponsor. Thank you to Team Kaiju for their five episode sponsorship purchase. We hope your headliner episode points enough people over to your Kickstarter campaign so we can see this book get made! (And feed Patrick, of course.)
