Comic writers Garrett Gunn (Warcorns, Good Boy) and Dr. Christina Blanch (Broken Gargoyles, Good Boy) have once again teamed up to create Postmasters, a post-apocalyptic adventure now being funded on Kickstarter.
The setting is described by Gunn and Blanch as a “post-pandemic America,” though by that they mean a virus that creates zombies. Because of the undead roaming the streets, everything is riskier, and that definitely includes delivering the mail. You’ve got to have guts of steel to make your appointed rounds in such a land — and a Postmaster known only by the number 32 is just such a man. The first 48-page issue is all about 32’s attempt to deliver a package and the many hazards that will try to stop him, from highway robbers to something known only as The Wicked.
Gunn recently worked at a post office himself. Can you guess where he got the idea for this? “I witnessed firsthand the incredibly daunting task presented to mail carriers on a regular basis, and even without the struggles of a worldwide epidemic, the sheer demanding nature of their duties would crush so many people,” says Gunn.
The visuals in Postmaster were created by artist Ruben Mocho and letterer Dave Lentz. “Ruben is a dream to work with,” Gunn says. “His manga-inspired art style brings brutality, vision, and an epic perspective to Postmasters that we could never have imagined. That art is expertly paired with the letters and design work of Dave Lentz. Dave is a brilliant letterer and his sense of layout and design puts a bow around the entire project.”
A digital copy of Postmasters can be obtained with a $5 pledge, while a physical copy takes a mere $10 pledge. A special edition with a Kickstarter-exclusive cover and a replica of the keycard used in the story is $30.
Postmasters has already broken its initial goal of $10,000 and is working toward meeting stretch goals. The campaign will remain open until December 14.

After years of near-total dormancy, Star Trek is finally back and making up for lost time with a ton of different shows at once, due to Paramount’s sudden need for content and valuable IP during the streaming wars. The first of these to be released was Star Trek Discovery, which
Livio Ramondelli is perhaps best known for his writing on IDW’s Transformers series, but in 2019 he came up with a sentient robot story of his own: The Kill Lock. Also published by IDW, the first run became a cult hit and Ramondelli is now proud to announce a sequel.
Putting the worlds of Godzilla and Power Rangers together is such an obvious idea that we find it hard to believe no one’s ever done it before. Both come from Japan, both involve giant monsters wrecking buildings, both are about larger-than-life battles and explosions. IDW will finally marry these two
