What? How? Based over what? Is this legit?

Hey Rocho! Yes this is legit. We were in talks with Playtonic since July. After Gavin, Andy and our company came to an agreement on some strips and one offs with an overall direction we started creating the content. We already have the first 18 comics underway and they'll be released in The Sunday Comics. What do you think of them so far?

Wow just saw the Kickstarter video and I'm impressed! Congratulations on getting all the deals together!

Overall I think is a fantastic idea and feel very proud of Playtonic for letting their characters expand to other types of media!

I guess I will have to wait and see but my only concern is how cannon the comics will be, as we still need to find out the main story on Yooka-Laylee. (Or you already got a big scoop on the planned story! Hahaha)

And 18 comics is a lot of content! I guess this will help the forums have something to talk about while we wait for the game!

Keep up the good work! And take care of Yooka and Laylee please!!

Thanks for the support, Rocho! We've been working for quite some time to where we are at today. Yooka-Laylee is one of our flagship properties that we fell in love with from Day 1 of their very own Kickstarter. All the folks at Playtonic are great people and we're so glad that you like the work so far :) There is a lot more fun to come with the characters. That's the idea, we want the fans to interact and get as much new content as they can. We hope you can support us, as we're still a start up in early stages and could use all the backing from fans that we can get. If you think anyone would like a special "Yooka-Laylee reward tier" where we can offer exclusive First Look Access to all the Yooka-Laylee work we're doing, we can set that up. Let us know what you all think about that idea. All the work will be up to the standard that Playtonic expects and nothing less we promise that!

Hey guys,

Just a note for those asking… Sunday Comics’ publication (which looks great!) has our blessing as an exciting fan tribute, but the Playtonic team is not involved at all. All story, characters, art etc comes entirely from their own talented team and is separate from our work and plans for the game.

We’re sure you’ll agree it looks really cool and we’re looking forward to reading it!

3 more hours until the kickstarter deadline. I'm one of the backers for the Yooka-Laylee comics.

They mentioned that it's being done in Photoshop.
