In crowdfunding comics, a “sure thing” doesn’t really exist. Yes, there are projects that can expected to hit their funding goal, but even those can fall short. But if there ever was a sure thing, it’s the projects from PaperFilms, the comic studio of Jimmy Palmiotti, Amanda Conner, Justin Gray, and others. They’ve held several successful Kickstarter campaigns throughout the years, and their latest, POP KILL, looks like another wild ride. Check out some of the details below and the campaign here.

Imagine a world where the two dominant and competing Cola companies, each worth billions, are owned by former Siamese twins who are now separated and have grown to hate each other so much they hire assassins, saboteurs, and espionage personnel to meddle with each other on a daily basis. This is the story about brotherly love run afoul, and the people they enlist to do their dirty work.
Meet the beautiful DINA DELUX, a scientist in the Fizz division at POPSO COLA. She’s on the verge of creating a formula that will make soda 50% fizzier, keeping it carbonated longer than any other brand on the market. A breakthrough like this would put all the competition out of business in a heartbeat.
When Popso’s main rival FIZZ ONE COLA hear the rumors about the discovery, they activate their best man, JON PYLE, an oversexed mercenary, to take care of the situation. His orders are to convince Dina to switch sides, and if that fails, to eliminate her. However, after they meet the attraction is undeniable and a third option kicks in, one which triggers repercussions from BOTH sides.
