The Charlie Brown Reboot You Never Knew You Needed is Back on Kickstarter for Weapon Brown: Aftershock

Jason Yungbluth first Kickstarted a graphic novel collection of Weapon Brown, his webcomic detailing the post-apocalyptic adventures of a grown-up Charlie Brown and other popular old school comic strip characters, in 2013. The comic went on to be a hit, so much so that Yungbluth is now out of stock and needs to print more. To fund it, he’s created a follow-up comic, Weapon Brown: Aftershock.

A mysterious wasteland prophet wanders into a dusty trading post, bringing news of a world reborn. But the townsfolk are more interested in hearing his stories of the legendary Weapon Brown, the one-armed army-of-one. Around the campfire they listen to his tales, but one of them knows more about Weapon Brown than he is letting on.

The 48-page epilogue to the original story is available on Kickstarter now, with less than three days to go. In addition to getting your hands on Weapon Brown: Aftershock, various backer levels also entitle you to copies of the original 416-page graphic novel and other rewards. As Yungbluth writes on the Kickstarter page:

Weapon Brown is an action parody, a lampoon of the post-apocalyptic genre which utilizes a cast made up entirely of characters borrowed from the most famous newspaper comic strips of all time. For legal reasons I cannot tell you that Weapon Brown stars bad ass, grown-up versions of Charlie Brown, Calvin & Hobbes, Orphan Annie, Huey Freeman and a hundred other pieces of lawsuit bait, but it does. (Oh shit. Now I REALLY need that money!)

The thick, 416-page graphic novel contains the complete saga of ex-super soldier Chuck, aka “Weapon Brown”, and his loyal mutt Snoop as they walk a ravaged future hellscape looking for revenge and redemption. The book features the chunky main story, additional short stories, pin-ups, annotations, sketch book pages and more!

Head over to Kickstarter to order digital or physical copies of Weapon Brown and Weapon Brown: Aftershock, or to view the other rewards.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
