Death Sentence Returns with a Kickstarter

The Kickstarter campaign for Death Sentence Liberty starts today, written by Monty Nero with art by Martin Simmonds . It’s the third story in the series and both were fantastic and entertaining reads.

Death Sentence Liberty tells of three characters afflicted by an STD that kills them in six months but gives them superpowers.

Verity’s the beating heart of the story. Frustrated and unfulfilled she longs for something more than cheap thrills and empty sex – to be a great artist and achieve something timeless. With no fuck’s left to give she’s a dangerous maverick rallying against an increasingly aggressive government.

Weasel is a rockstar drug-addict desperate to reconcile with his family and record a legendary album before he dies. His G-plus powers are as unreliable as he is, spreading chaos or comedy – which is why Verity dumped him.

Roots is half-woman, half-plant, and 100% badass – an ex drug dealer using her burgeoning G-plus powers to protect her hood from police and gang violence.

Additionally, Jeb is an FBI agent infiltrating the UK’s top-secret G-plus research facility to steal their secrets – a family man in far worse trouble than he realises.

Monty Nero is an award winning Comics Masters graduate from Dundee University. He co-created the hit graphic novel Death Sentence with artist Mike Dowling (2014), and its sequel Death Sentence: London (2016) with Martin Simmonds. He’s also written for 2000ad, Vertigo and Marvel, including Hulk, Amazing X-Men, and X-men Gold.

The campaign runs through October 2.
