    Because the last one was getting a little long in the tooth.

    This is the place to post your own kickstarters as well as campaigns that you just find interesting.

    Have at it.

    Okay, I'll cork this by saying YAY at reaching 4000 pounds with Torsobear: Yarns from Toyburg - we stil have 1600 pounds and six days to go, fingernails are getting short for the team :D

    We have a funding event in Facebook, check it out - it's not just a series of "gimme!" -posts but there's new art, new free comics and all kinds of fun stuff there!

    Here's a pic from my story, illustrated by Saoirse Louise Towler. I'm blown away by the stuff she's done!

    A game from a Dublin indie studio, soundtrack is by FTL's Ben Prunty, the early demo I played of this reminded me of Treasure's Dynamite Headdy.

    I got one for ya!
    My Kickstarter just went live yesterday, and picked as a Staff Pick.
    Called Pariah Missouri Book 2. (an occult western story) Book 1 was a kickstarter last year, and the graphic novel was selected as the Diamond Previews Staff Pick in July.
    I've been hitting the con circuit. Used to work for Howard Chaykin.

    If you have a moment please take a look and download preview copies of Book 1 and Book 2 on the site

    www.pariahmissouri.com

    Thank you for considering!

    Public libraries provided one of the sources of childhood joy. This Kickstarter for a documentary about today's public libraries is definitely something I'll be supporting.

    Hi all.

    I've got probably the closest thing to a traditional superhero comic as I'll ever write up on Kickstarter now, for only 7 days total. (A "Quickstarter" if you will... if you will find me clever rather than tedious, that is.) Superheroes and multiple realities crossed with crime noir.

    Created by myself (as Lex Wilson) and illustrator Jason Strutz.

    or http://kickalex.com/ for short.

    Hey there!
    Phew! It's been a while since I've posted here...

    Well, sorry for the intrusion. There's a lot of young talent involved in this Kickstarter and I honestly think they're worth all the attention they can get (I'm just the bitter old man who does the lettering).

    Thing is for mature readers, mind you and it's, in the writer's own words, an over-the-top, pedal-to-the-metal, balls-to-the-wall, bus-to-the-shops (is that a saying? Must investigate) slasher extravaganza. You want a high body-count? Fifty campers. You want psychopaths? Here’s ten.

    Please, give it a look:

    Australian author/artist Andrez Bergen here in Tokyo - hope you're well, mates.

    All good at this end — I'm a bit of a fan of your site, actually.

    Anyhow...

    Under Belly in Canada actually has a Kickstarter running at the moment for the 12-issue series of my Aussie noir/hardboiled title BULLET GAL as a trade paperback, so if you can help spread the word (via Twitter, or whatever) we'd be eternally grateful! ;)

    Absolutely no stress, tho', of course!

    The video clip they created for said campaign is worth the price of admission alone – which, anyway, is free to take a peek. It’s like John Huston grappling Robert Rodriguez’s visual excesses; Raymond Chandler indulging in bar room script-writing fisticuffs with Philip K. Dick.

    They even conspired to make my art look good.

    And we have a cover painting from NIAGARA DETROIT.

    Am absolutely chuffed.

    RAVENOUS - More than a HUNGER! by Juan Navarro — Kickstarter.

    We're at it again, this time with an amazing project that I've been part of as Editor and now as Series writer (starting in issue 2)  created by the amazing team of  John Ulloa and Jose Varese.

    Jose is an amazing artist, and you should really check out his work and his Instagram page, and Jon has been the driving force behind Creature with me at every con. This is the chance for them to shine and get Ravenous out to more people than ever!

    In January, we will be in the Diamond Distribution PREVIEWS catalog, soliciting nationally for the first time with RAVENOUS. It's a great book, with a cool story, amazing art, and story arc that's going to blow minds.  Check it out and pledge what you can, even a buck is awesome, and if not SPREAD THE WORD!

    As much as this is a business move with a hot-new project and another step in global domination, this is also a chance for my friend Jose to reach his full potential. He recently took the plunge and left a job that was treating him like crap, and decided to go into a more rewarding career as an artist on his own. He's already doing great, let me tell you, and it was a calculated risk, but really one that, as you can see from his work and following, was kind of a no brainer too. He just needed to do it. So as a fellow artist, his business partner, and friend, I think I am more stoked to see this happen and burst at the seams MORE so for him than anything I've done. So take a look and let me know what you think!

    Here are some more examples of his work:

    Hit up the Kickstarter page and show some love, we'll see you guys soon!
