  • A Savitar trading card

So, what’s next? 

  • $1,800 gets us an Eagle Force MEGA character design trading card (sophisticated Eagle Force fans vote for GORE GILLS)

Here’s how to get in:

  • Increase your pledge by $25 to not make it through alive!

Eagle Force Pulp: The Cat in Face the Night Now Live on Kickstarter

The latest Eagle Force Pulp Novella from The Drawn Word is now live on Kickstarter! Lee Fine, aka The Cat, must deal with both the R.I.O.T. Direktor and Baron Von Chill, as the world grows more dire…

In Lee Fine’s latest adventure, Face the Night, he comes face to face with a monstrous legend–

Then, the figure fully emerges from the shadows, and the assassin screams in terror.

All Vito can make out is orange hair as the hitman’s scream of shock turns into several ones of pain, punctuated by the sound of breaking bones.

Triumphant, the orange-haired figure stands over what’s left of the assassin, gloved fists clenched by its side. Suddenly, it has turned to face Vito. Green skin, white eyes encircled with dark circles, and a rictus-like grin with dripping fangs coming out from under the top lip. “Be cool, Vito,” this…face says. “And get out of town.”

It’s 1980 and Lee Fine has finally become comfortable with the life of a secret operator. Fine’s world does, however, continue to change, as Baron Von Chill rises to prominence in diplomatic circles and the mysterious Direktor continues his nefarious plans.

Amidst all of it, The Cat encounters a crimefighter from the past, who has a link to a covert military group in World War II. Face the Night brings the world closer to where it needs an Eagle Force. Read it here first.

You can get your pledge in on the 3rd Eagle Force Pulp offering here: Eagle Force Pulp: The Cat in Face the Night Now Live on Kickstarter. Once you get your pledge in, join us on the Cobra Island Forums for discussion already in progress!

Eagle Force HQ – SITREP on Eagle Force

The latest Eagle Force HQ update was shared shared today by our friends at The Drawn Word. We’ve mirrored the update for you below, so check it out then join us on the CobraIsland.com Forums for discussion already in progress! 

Here’s where we go from here…

A ton has been going on with Eagle Force lately. For those of you following, Bill at Fresh Monkey Fiction made the call to retool the Eagle Force Returns figures. This will add a few more months to the final delivery while the final figures are perfected, and I’m going to use the extra time to focus on more Cat stories, and extra Eagle Force goodies:

  • Eagle Force Legends: Those of you who ordered the second pack (Redwing) back in September, I finally got those out last week. The hang-up was that my metal card vendor was delayed more than usual. I had a Legends idea that will reward you, the die-hards. Every month, I’ll do a digital pack of Legends cards, which will have about three of the classic Eagle Forcers (or R.I.O.T.ers!). With enough designed and under our belt, we can then look to printing a limited edition pack. Also, I have about half a dozen of Pack #2, which has Redwing, the Blackbird design preview, and the Tannis Rand metal card. Email me if you want dibs on one! I’m selling them for $20, which includes shipping.
  • The Cat: Seize the Castle should go out to backers by mid-December! After I get through the semester here, I plan on starting the third Cat novella, Face the Night.
  • Eagle Force MEGA is still alive and well. I still hope to get that original card set done, and am waiting to time them for sometime next summer
  • Finally, I have a trading card checklist, designed at trading card size, and good for printing!

P.S.: I also reduced some of my earlier trading card sets for quick sale over the holidays. I also have a deal to send out loose cards. Check it out!
