Nuka Girl Comic Book
Fan art comic book about the origin of Nuka Girl, inspired by the Fallout franchise.
Hollywood made her a Star, The Wasteland made her a Hero.
Hello folks, we are a Los Angeles based group of artists and fans of Fallout!
We are creating a comic book that tells the origin story of Nuka Girl. Nuka Girl is based off of the “Thirst Zapper” model featured in the Nuka Cola billboards and posters throughout The Commonwealth in the video game Fallout 4. Award winning cosplay model and actress Ali Williams will be used as reference for the comic book character of Nuka Girl. We have other actors who are used as models for characters in the comic book as well.
This project is FAN ART inspired by the FALLOUT franchise. The COMIC BOOK and this Indiegogo campaign are in no way affiliated with Bethesda Softworks or Fallout Official Works.
What We Need & What You Get
With your contributions we will be able to produce a brand new, independent comic book, with original characters and an original story that takes place in the world of Fallout. We also have some amazing perks that will cater to cosplay fans, Fallout fans and comic book fans! We want to entertain and excite you as well as celebrate the world of Fallout by creating a unique story from the perspective of a mysterious, so far, untapped character from the Fallout universe.
We are setting our goal at $10,000. Most comic books can easily cost double this amount to produce professionally!! With your help this money will go straight into production costs and perk fulfillment. Production costs include but are not limited to printing, binding and shipping of the printed comic book, artist’s rates for penciling, inking, coloring, lettering, writing, producing and modeling. Perk fulfillment includes the purchasing and producing of materials for the perks as well as shipping costs to us before they are shipped out to the backers.
We have some amazing perks including a Nuka Girl calendar featuring our gorgeous, award-winning cosplay model, Ali Williams! The ability to become a character in the comic book and have your image animated into our story! $20 Coupon for your own Nuka Cola Blaster at 3D Props and Printing! And many more!
Risks & Challenges
As always there is a potential of not reaching our goal. If we do not reach our goal we will use the money to fulfill as many perks as we can and still produce the highest quality comic book that we can, however the length may be shortened or we may only use black and white interior panels.
With any collaborative creation you have artistic input coming from different perspectives. There are also fan expectations when dealing with source material that people know and love. Especially in a passion project like this we want to make sure everyone’s art is valued and works with the overall vision. We also want to satisfy the fans and provide you with quality entertainment.
We have a team of professional artists bringing their unique talents and fandom to this project. We hope to meet or surpass your expectations on what would make a great comic book and origin story for this character!

Jonathan McClintic – Illustrator
An avid comic fan since I was 4 years old, I pursued art over medicine and architecture. After years of corporate graphic arts, I switched over to the movie making industry, working as a compositor for many blockbusters. Finally finding my way into preproduction doing story boarding and character design for various small budget productions. This led me to meet Ryan and Ali and when I heard about this project, I was instantly on board, as I was a huge fan of the Fallout series, having played the first game way back in 2000. Now I am excited to bring you their vision of one of the original survivors of the nuclear holocaust, the incomparable Nuka Girl.
Sarabeth Kett – Colorist / Letterer
As a self-taught designer and illustrator, Sarabeth has been drawing since she could hold a pencil and has taken inspiration from all over to develop her creative style. With influences from Tumblr to Film and TV to ComicCon, she tries to stay ahead of the game when it comes to art and design. When she’s not at her day job, Sarabeth works on custom illustrations and regularly loses herself in video games and comics.
Folks, we couldn’t do this without you! This is a project for fans, by fans.
