Jim Starlin's BREED Omnibus

by Jim Starlin

He has taken you to the stars and beyond, now Jim Starlin takes you to Hell. Starlin’s other epic creator-owned series, Breed, is the story of Raymond Stoner, a down-on-his-luck ex-soldier who discovers his true heritage: he is the half-breed spawn a demon father and a human mother. Now Raymond must defend our world from demonic hordes, all while trying not to lose own humanity.

Collected by Monkey Wrench Press for the first time ever in a hardcover, the Breed Omnibus contains all three Breed series, plus a wealth of extras, at more than 550 pages of Jim Starlin goodness!

"This, I believe, was the best work I ever did. I rank the BREED series even over my Thanos and Dreadstar series. It’s, quite simply, my favorite creation." - JIM STARLIN

#Intro

My Second Favorite Monster

"Breed, like Dreadstar, came to being during a wildly transitory period in the comic book business: computers were getting added to the mix. With Dreadstar’s start we suddenly got double the number of colors we could use in a book, including never-before-available shades of gray. By the time I started laboring away on ‘Breed the computers had taken over completely on both the lettering and the coloring. Now an infinite number of hues could be utilized. I started using the computer to write Dreadstar halfway through its initial run, the scripts being handwritten before then.

But the drawing, for me, remained analog, as it does to this day. Looking back at ‘Breed is a real pleasure. I think I did some of my best ink work on that initial ‘Breed run. Having just recently reread the series, I’m still proud of the story. Even decades later I find it engaging and Raymond Stoner’s tale fascinating. I’m so pleased that we can now offer his journey to a new generation of readers and give the old fans a fancy omnibus edition to put on the ol’ bookshelf."

- Jim Starlin

#Story

Half human/half demon Ray Stoner's journey of discovery in learning more about his demonic heritage takes him through a Shaolin temple in Tibet in the mid seventies, fighting alongside Central American rebels in the eighties, encountering guest stars from across the Starlin-verse like Dreadstar, Oedi, Wyrd and Kid Kosmos, and confronting a mystical 'Breed' and his 'Fathers', who have dark designs for Earth.

All three volumes of Jim Starlin's blood-drenched saga Breed are collected here for the very first time in this must-read 550+ page hardcover omnibus! The newly scanned and color-corrected book will feature new intros, spreads, chapter breaks, unused art and concepts.

#Timeline

The books have been scanned and color corrected. We're in the process of assembling files for print production, and those should be ready to send to the printer shortly after the campaign is over. Printing and shipping from that point should take around 3-4 months, so delivery of rewards is expected to be done in November or December 2024.

Zoop will communicate with supporters should any delays occur, if there’s confusion about delivery, or if any other concerns pop up.

Frequently asked questions

Yes! We encourage you to get more than 1 item! That could be multiple copies of the same reward, or you can mix and match rewards! There is no limit, unless otherwise stated in the reward description.

Our campaigns are for a worldwide audience unless stated otherwise in the campaign. All international orders are sold with the terms DAP (Delivered At Place). You are responsible for any duties and taxes required for the shipment's entry into your country. Our carriers may require you to pay taxes and fees related to importation and customs brokerage of your shipment -- but if your item is really low in value, it may fall under the customs de minimis of most countries. For more information, please contact USPS

Zoop does not store or keep your credit card info. Stripe simply holds the credit card info until the end of a successful campaign and then charges it. It is strictly for this one time use and won't charge it ever again.

You can either access the transaction through your account and click the cancel button, or contact us at hello@wearezoop.com and we'll cancel it for you and send back a confirmation email.

 

Cancellations of rewards or add-ons of $500 or more must be made before there are 72 hours left in the campaign. The reason for this is it can have a negative effect on the tally of the campaign. If it is a limited reward or add-on, there may not be sufficient time for someone else to purchase it, leaving the campaign possibly not funded. We ask for your courtesy of the people running the campaign when making these decisions.

Please use the notes section in the last checkout step or you could e-mail us at hello@wearezoop.com with that info during the campaign if you'd like to get it out of the way. Otherwise, we'll be reaching out to all supporters of rewards that require feedback shortly after the campaign is over.

If you want to make changes, you should first cancel your original order and then start over with a new one. If you don't do that and simply process an additional order, the way our system is currently set up you may end up being overcharged for shipping -- which we could remedy for you, but it just takes that extra step of catching it and crediting you back the extra shipping, so please try the prior way first.

Rewards are the priority items that the creators have chosen for the campaign. Add-Ons are meant to be secondary items that are 'unlocked' after you buy something from the Reward level. There are no restrictions on buying Rewards, but you can only buy Add-Ons if you've bought a Reward. Zoop sets this up under the direction of the creators. Some may choose to only have Rewards, some may choose an even balance of Rewards and Add-Ons, and others may choose to only have one or two Rewards with the rest of the items being Add-Ons.

Since we have an a la carte rewards system, shipping rates will vary from supporter to supporter. We use a weight-based calculation system in your checkout cart, though, so, after you enter your country, you'll be able to see it calculated in real time with each item you add.

No - this is it! We're essentially your in-campaign pledge manager. If you are interested in supporting these creators, this is the time to do it!  And it's the exact reason we allow you to purchase as many rewards as you want during the campaign!
