“LIFTED is a graphic novel five years in the making,” creator Shawn Pryor comments. “I’ve always wanted to create a heist story that mixes elements of films such as The Score and The Thomas Crown Affair with aspects of Clash of the Titans and X-Files. We’ve been able to do something different and dynamic with this dream project of ours, and we can’t wait to share it with all of you.”

The digital edition of the graphic novel is available for $10 and you can get a softcover copy for $20. Deluxe editions, mini-posters and other works by Shawn Pryor (including CASH + CARRIE) are also available. You can check out the rest of the rewards on the Kickstarter page here:
