Our Launch party starts 10am Monday, It’s going to be wild!
Five years ago I began a creative journey. It had nothing to do with art or my career at all. It began... in the Ring!
My name was Andy Belanger, Comic artist and creator, animator and storyboard artist. I’ve worked for years in the mainstream comic market, plus a wide variety of projects in the Film, Television and Video Game industries. I worked for such publishers as D.C. comics, Wildstorm, Heavy Metal Magazine, TKO, IDW, Boom, Valiant, Dynamite and IMAGE comics. I created and drew the series Southern Cross with Becky Cloonan for Image comics which was optioned by NBC Universal to become an Anime in Japan. I drew The Simulationists, Mythopia and Rattlehead for Heavy Metal Magazine with Grant Morrison, Duncan Trussell, Donny Cates and Dan Fogler. I worked with Andrew Stott on the WWE comics line for Boom Studios and at TKO I illustrated the fight comic Pound for Pound with Natalie Chaidez. My other works include SwampThing with Scott Snyder and Jeff Lemire for D.C.comics, Friday the 13th with Joshua Hale Fialkov for Wildstorm and The Kill Shakespeare series with Conor McCreery and Anthony Del Col at IDW. I was the trailer animator on FarCry 3 Blood Dragon for UbiSoft which won multiple awards. My career has been amazing, but then, like I said, 5 years ago everything changed.
When I moved to Montreal, I was taken to my first indie wrestling show at IWS (the International Wrestling Syndicate). It was nothing short of amazing and I never missed another show, my love of wrestling had truly been reignited. I noticed how the match structure felt just like comics. The heroes, the villains, the hero's journey playing out in front of me every glorious match. Right then and there I knew I wanted to make the most crazy insane wrestling comic of all time. Andrew Stott, a local wrestler and writer, asked me to give training a try at their new school (the IWS Dojo). My second practice match and I was hooked, I fell in love with the craft, I fell in love with performing for fans and my catalogue of ideas for my comic went from a spark to a roaring bonfire. That’s when Andy Belanger went home to be a family man, and “THE ANIMAL” BOB ANGER was born!
After 5 years of wrestling and writing the epic MOTHER TRUCKER, “THE ANIMAL” is finally ready to lay it all on the line, jump off the top rope and present this book to the world. Book 1 is wrapped, now I just need your help to bring it to the printers, unlock amazing rewards, skip the middleman, the gatekeepers and ship it directly to you! Hop on board and let’s get MOTHER TRUCKIN’.
A Sci-Fi saga about a space-truckin’, ass-stompin', wrestle goddess, who’s on a quest to find her long lost daughter and become the greatest trucker of all time and the Champion of Truck Off, the Wrestlemania of the starways.
Mother Trucker is Over the Top and Running Man meets Barbarella and Wonder woman. The world she inhabits is 80’s WWF Wrestling, Monster Trucks and far out Americana. Essentially a Heavy metal magazine version of American Kinnikuman.
PART 2 the CUT OFF "Faced with a new found fame as a killer upstart in the outer rim trucking sector, Mother Trucker and her pup Trucky are in bad need of some repairs. They crash land on an infamous floating truckstop, Big Momma Burgers, where she's faced with some gnarly characters from her past and the devastating tag team of Tina Torque and Debbie Death-Haul. It's ladies night in the 18 wheeled squared circle, will Mother Trucker come out on top!?"
Mother Trucker is a love letter to the Saturday morning cartoon world building with a truck load of edge and heart. It’s big Dudes, big Trucks, big business brought to heel by one bad Mother Trucker. In a Galaxy where trucking reality shows and wrestling rules entertainment, Truck Off is the ultimate annual event. Truck off is a high stakes competition where the best intergalactic shipping contracts are won by wrestling on the backs of trucks while racing around the rings of Saturn. Can Mother Trucker go all the way and take the Bridge-mart Championship belt at Truck Off 12 and win the Truck of her dreams? Big wig corporate giants will do anything to keep her from winning, keep her from the prize and keep her from the truth of her past. To take them on she’ll need to become the baddest Mother Trucker in the galaxy.
