This week the fine folks at Fresh Monkey Fiction posted the final installment of the Eagle Force “Shattered Peace” webcomic that I wrote and the always impressive Ryan Lord did the artwork for. To say working with Ryan and the Eagle Force guys was a pleasure would be a massive understatement. Ever since I was 8 years old I wanted to write comics, and the opportunity to craft the stories with these characters, both classic and new, has been an awesome experience.
You can check out the comics on the Eagle Force Returns Facebook Page and I’ve also mirrored all 18 parts below. I truly hope you enjoyed them and that they helped quench some thirst as we wait for these awesome characters to be in our hands in physical form.
Rest assured, though, this isn’t all. There will be plenty more Eagle Force related excitement to come, so stay tuned.
Man, I get goosebumps every time Fresh Monkey Fiction posts a new one of these strips. All my life I’ve wanted to write comics, and so far this is the closest I’ve gotten, and I’m loving it. Huge thanks to Bill for giving me the opportunity to do it, and major props to the legendary Ryan Lord for his stellar artwork!
Eagle Force Returns on Facebook is where you want to be to see all the latest! I’ve mirrored them below as well.
We’ve been hearing about it for a while, and the time has finally come! Eagle Force makes its triumphant return on Kickstarter.
In fact, Kickstarter’s approval process was a bit quicker than anticipated, and the special forces team from the 80s actually debuted yesterday. It was a seriously strong debut as well, already clocking in over $65,000 in just 24 hours! Holy guacamole!
I’m very proud to say I’m doing some work alongside Fresh Monkey Fiction writing some of the bio’s for the characters and I am ecstatic to see this strong early response. Keep on hammering, folks, there’s a ton of great stuff in the stretch goals, and Eagle Force looks like a TON of fun.
We’ve got gliders, we’ve got a playset… it’s like the 80s all over again.
Check it out at Kickstarter.com!
Now, this is, I would imagine, subject to change, but at this point, the folks from Fresh Monkey Fiction have revealed the initial price list and stretch goal layout for their upcoming Eagle Force Returns Kickstarter!
This is a very helpful step, letting some enthusiastic fans plan ahead and start saving those essential funds needed to support what looks to be an amazingly fun Kickstarter initiative! They released the information on their Facebook page, but you can also check it out below.
If you’re going to be at ComicCon this weekend, be sure to stop by booth E10, Row 600 and pick the brains of the Fresh Monkey Fiction folks. Bill will also be helping out with a panel about Kickstarting action figures! All of this information (and more) can be found on the Eagle Force Returns Facebook Page, so “Like” that bad boy and stay all up to date on the latest news on the upcoming Eagle Force resurgence!

Over at the Broken Arrow toys booth, some brand spanking new Eagle Force Returns reveals have emerged! And not just figures, but actual playset items as well. Images have been posted over at HissTank.com and some really awesome stuff coming.
I’ve mirrored the images below… but dude…check out the Eagle Island! Holy cow.
Also, over on JoeCustoms, Joe Harris, who has been working with Fresh Monkey on some Eagle Force concepts, has posted some fantastic up close images of the template for the communications dish as well as a nice look at the Eagle Island playset. I’m really loving how this line is coming together and will be earmarking some serious cash for the upcoming Kickstarter.
