News of the Sky Pirates of Neo Terra video game has been circulating for months — the announcement of the webcomic was on Robot 6, screenshots of the game play were seen on Comic Book Resources and The Escapist Magazine, and most recently, news of beta access for fans and a brand-new webcomic was seen on ComicsAlliance.

Today starts the beginning of the Sky Pirates of Neo Terra webcomic illustrated by Camilla d’Errico and written by Kurtis J. Weibe! The series will be updated bi-weekly on Fridays on the Sky Pirates website, but you can catch a sneak-peek of the comic on the Sky Pirates Facebook page!
Check out a teaser below:
We hope you love the new online series as well as the new game coming out soon for the iPhone, iPad, iTouch, and Facebook platforms! The webcomic will showcase characters not explored in the original Sky Pirates of Neo Terra graphic novel and give back-story to events that happen in the game.
As a special treat, here’s a quick peak at some work-in-progress material that will be out sometime next year:
We’ve mentioned it before, but be sure to “like” the Sky Pirates Facebook page for a chance to win an original piece of art from Camilla!
Thank you all, again, so much for helping us reach the goal of funding the Tanpopo Kickstarter campaign! If you haven’t watched it yet, please check out this video from Camilla where she talks about what will happen with the extra funds.
With only a week left, and after releasing the numbered and signed print image, we wanted to show fans the new cover of Tanpopo that will be available in March of 2012. The hardcover edition of the book will collect Vol. 1 – 3, as well as some terrific bonus material.
And because we’re feeling so happy, we thought we’d show you the special, limited edition slipcase image! The image is currently only in black and white, but we wanted to make sure everyone knows that the limited edition of the book (starting at only $50) will not be available in stores – this very unique copy of Tanpopo is only for Kickstarter funders.
There are still a few open spots open on the Kickstarter page for fans to purchase an original line-art page from Tanpopo, but only a handful. Other tiers have sold-out, however, there are still plenty of limited edition books available, but only for one more week!
If you’re unfamiliar with any of the artists, please click on their link to see wonderful examples of their work. The guest list alone is going to make this one of the best books of 2012, and wait until you see the full-length story by Camilla and Joshua Dysart!
It’s also with great joy and humble thanks that we celebrate the complete funding of the Tanpopo Kickstarter campaign – over 100% with brand new tiers for original art added!
Because this book was able to be crowd-source funded so quickly, we’ve decided to do the same for Helmetgirls: Origins, with some proceeds going to benefit the on the CBLDF!
October is upon us, which means it’s time for New York Comic Con, one of the biggest comic and anime conventions in the world! There’s so much to announce this year, so let’s get to it!
First, we hope you’ll come say hello in the Small Press Section (seen in the image above with the red-dotted line around the space on the right of the map) – we’re at Booth 2752 – right on the corner so it’s easy to find.
It’s also a pleasure to see that the Tanpopo Hardcover Edition Kickstarter backed by BOOM! Studios is nearly 70% funded! We recently teased out a chapter break image that will be in the new book, which you can see here.
Don’t forget, we’re still running the Granimator Contest for the iPad until the end of the month, where users get a chance to play with Camilla’s original designs to create their own unique wallpaper image!
As always, thank you for your support and kind words this year. It’s been a whirlwind of activity and announcements, and seeing all of the news come together in once place like this is super! If you’re attending NYCC, please RSVP with us on Facebook, and we hope to see your wonderful, smiling faces at the show!
You may have seen news of the announcement on The Escapist and CBR, but it’s official – Day 21 Studios, a veteran run, independent video game studio, is announcing the launch of their debut title Sky Pirates of Neo Terra. Designed for gamers ages 10 and up, Sky Pirates offers real-time online multiplayer racing, the first of its kind on Facebook.
An original game by Day 21 Studios with character designs by comic and pop surrealism artist, Camilla d’Errico, Sky Pirates’ unique visual style and thrilling racing offers gaming audiences a different kind of experience with their friends on Facebook than the typical Farm builder.
Sky Pirates takes place in the original setting of Neo Terra, a wondrous world with a rich backstory, forgotten technology and natural magic. The most popular sport in the land is Glidewing racing, which culminates in a Great Race in the valley of Neo Eden. Winning five consecutive Great Races earns the victor the right to name the leader of the Great Tribal Council. This year’s upcoming race has the cruel Pirate King poised for just that honor, one that could throw this peaceful world into turmoil.
Players get to choose their racers and Glidewings from any of the 14 tribes of Neo Terra or customize their own in order to best the Pirate King and five of their friends on over a dozen unique courses in this high-flying aerial racer.
To see more screenshots of the game, along with concept art and more, head over the Sky Pirates Facebook page. And to pre-register for the game’s launch, which automatically enters you in a contest for a chance to win one of five original pages from the graphic novel, please visit the Sky Pirates website.
