September 2014 – the music collective Swamp Music Players had a Kickstarter to raise funds for a release of it’s more ambitious sophomore album ‘Timeless Cool’ and a promotional comic. The Kickstarter was a success on college radio and sparked interest in Swamp Music Players online. However the comic fell into a development-hell with medical issues, a flood and budget overruns severely impacting the project. Brazilian comic legend Luiz Saidenberg generously “worked for scale” to finish the second half of the artwork bringing a conclusion to the artwork. With the departure of the Editor the Executive producer of Swamp Music Players was left to re-write, re-edit the comic for an assembly cut for our patient backers in 2018. The text to page of “Into The Heart Of Conflict” was not completed to satisfaction and the promotional/marketing of Swamp Music Players had changed so we have released it via our sub-site Lammergeiernet. The artwork is stunning and much kudos to Zhana D’Arte and Luiz Saidenberg for their craftsmanship. If you like the comic please share, follow Swamp Music Players, Zhana D’Arte and Luiz Saidenberg websites and socials.
