I’ve been working hard on comics lately, and today, two of my projects have gone live on Kickstarter. I know that, like me, most of my friends are on a tight budget, but if you love comics, love stories that go beyond just “tights and capes,” love art and fantasy and science fiction and independent creators… then maybe one or the other of these fundraisers will interest you!
Torsobear is an anthology based on a “fluffy noir” world of toys where all is not as it seems. The author’s description says, “Ruxby Bear and Toyburg PD investigate cases of violence, corruption and murder in a city of toys.” The book’s beautiful and has a wide range of styles, all full-colour and with cool rewards and perks for early backers. Here it is!
Deviants is a story about superpowers, but it’s nothing like a traditional superhero comic. The author’s description says, “A diverse young cast of genetically gifted “deviants” struggle to escape their island prison, uncovering dark mysteries in the process." There’s gorgeous artwork, an intriguing storyline, strong female characters, ethnic diversity, and all kinds of awesome stuff. Take a look!
Both of these projects are really cool, and I’m thrilled to have been lucky enough to work with such brilliant creative teams. Please, if you have some spare change lying around, consider backing one of these projects, because I’d like to be able to continue working with them, and because these are some super badass comics you should read!
