Kickstarter Comics Roundup!

Kickstarter Comics Roundup!

It’s that time of the month again, folks, where we delve into the personal projects and crowdfunded comics on the wonderful world of Kickstarter. This time around, I’m bring you four upcoming projects that I think look interesting that you should be checking out too. Enjoy!

Death is, truly, the one thing we all have in common. But that doesn't make it easy to talk about. None of us can agree on what happens after the end comes, or about how much we should think about it beforehand, or even what death should mean to the living. But who says there's anything wrong with that? Not us. 

With 24 contributing artists and over 240 pages, this Iron Circus Comics anthology features a line-up of cartoonists, both new and notable, relating their favourite stories, myths, hopes, and suspicions about death, dying, and even The Great Beyond.

We don’t often see travel blogging comics on Kickstarter (nor anywhere else for that matter) but this next one changes all that! Sarah Graley, the creator of Our Super Adventure, a diary webcomic about living with four cats and a cat-like boy. 

The goal of this Kickstarter is to fund a cute square hardback book documenting Sarah and her cat-like boy’s trip to Toronto, Canada back in 2018. The book will feature gold foiling detail on the cover, and will be 64 pages long, containing 40 all new comics, and a whole bunch of semi-illustrated photos from their trip. (If you’ve read their previous travel comic, Our Super American Adventure, you'll know what I mean!)

The Bones of This Place is a 48 page, 9x6, hardcover graphic homage to loneliness and unwanted transformation. Originally created as an INKTOBER project for 2018, with your help it can become so, so much more. If you’re still not sold, check out the synopsis from creator, Marie Enger: 

‘In 2018 something happened and my body started becoming something new. It did this without my permission, without caring what I needed or who I believed myself to be.  

You’re trapped in your skin - even if you don’t want to be. There are things you can do to change yourself, but there are parts of you, deep down in the dark, that shift without your control. You’re bound to these dark places, unable to escape. I became acutely aware, and troubled by this knowledge as my skin and bones started to twist into something, I didn’t set out to be. It consumed, consumes, me still.’

16 chapters. 16 words.  There is no English dialogue or exposition in Anasazi. Instead each chapter heading contains an alien language glyph along with a non-English word or phrase meaning and its literal English translation. These glyphs then appear as dialogue throughout the story.  

The story follows two tribes, Malecite and Anasazi, whom are separated by a river, Fisterra. A forbidden crossing of this boundary leads to a bloody massacre, and two orphaned Anasazi children, Ebere and Xenia, are taken in by the Malecite.  But divisions within the tribe sow bitter conflict and a mythical and monstrous enemy loom on the horizon. 

This sounds like a unique and ambitious project. Few comic creators would even consider telling a 16-chapter story with hardly any words, but Mike Mccubbins and Matt Bryan taken the challenge and the result looks fantastic.
