The Story


After botching the “one last job” that was supposed to get them up and out of the irradiated slums of the futuristic “Lower Tokyo”, two small time crooks, Tib and Wren, along with their mentor, aspiring hoverbike racer Lee, are caught between superpowered gangs, a violent police state, a class revolution, and a leather-clad, pyrokinetic madman trying to burn it all down. Thieves, family, flame, Tokyo will burn.


Written by T.S. Luther (Growing Up), drawn by Sky Hawkins (Exhaust), and lettered by Mike Stock (Dead Roots), Tokyo Fire is a seven-issue limited-series that follows two back-alley thieves as they navigate their final days in a city on the brink of collapse and unravel the conspiracy that led to its downfall.


With your help, we can jumpstart issue #1 and start telling the story of Lower Tokyo’s dissent into ash.

Stretch Goals

If we can hit $4,000, we’ll include a whole mess of concept art back matter in the issue from the making of issue #1!


• The Zoop campaign will run from August 15th, 2023 to September 15th, 2023.


• Writing is complete and art work and lettering on the issue is already underway!


• Creative will finish up after the campaign closes. (About a month)


• The world is a scary place and we have tried to account for any and all monsters that might get in our way. That being said, delays in finishing the art are always possibly, however unlikely. Any delays will be communicated promptly to backers.


• All that leaves is printing and shipping. (About two weeks for each)


• We are aiming for the end of November/beginning of December for backers to receive all of their rewards.


• Printing and shipping delays are possible. Any delays will be communicated promptly to backers.

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 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 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!
