Fighting Lion Comics science-fiction epic Brik Jones: Attorney for Earth– Origins #1-5 is now live on Kickstarter. Written and lettered by Phil Smith, with artists Giuseppe Cafaro and Sid Kotian, and colorist Bill Farmer, this is the tale of Brik Jones—a selfish attorney saving the Earth from alien invasion—one case at a time.
‘When an interstellar wrecking crew claims the Earth as its property, they are temporarily halted by an interstellar court order until Earth’s representative can be found. Coming off a heartbreaking courtroom loss, Brik is unceremoniously shot into space to a waiting starship, where he discovers his missing father has been Earth’s attorney for the last 20 years but has gone missing.
In his father’s absence, Brik must assume the title. As Brik navigates the byzantine galactic legal structure, the clock is ticking as an immense Destroyer waits above the Earth, eager to tear it to pieces. Brik must solve the mystery of what happened to his father and how he will manage the pressure the nations of Earth place on him with their competing interests and his own views. All while on the run from the mysterious alien race whose plan to destroy the Earth rests on it having no legal defender, making Brik a target and our only hope.’
Blending adventure elements best seen in series like Firefly and Law and Order, as well as exotic science fiction expressed in X-Files and Star Trek, Brik Jones: Attorney for Earth– Origins #1-5 Kickstarter calls it quits September 16th.
