And with that amazing play on words, may we present, the CXC Crowdfunding Monthly Roundup, May 2017.
Who killed the Prime Minister? Its Death Note meets House of Cards in this British crime drama about corruption and hacktivism.
Emily Green is a struggling politician. She is the second-in-command of the British government, but her personal life is falling apart, she doesn’t believe in the political system anymore and she is preparing to quietly step down from her position after the upcoming General Election.
Jump into the Queen universe that Graphic Policy’s Brett Schenker, who works in politics, describes as
“About as authentic as you can get.”
After reading about the personal struggle that led creator Jamie Me to create Queen, we knew this was an important series and wanted to do our best to get the word out so he can continue to bring these incredible stories to life.
We think you should check out this campaign and throw your support behind this extraordinary team as well. Whether that means backing or sharing, let’s help these guys reach the widest audience possible, and help Queen find it’s home among every indie fan’s collection.
Seemingly unrelated Horror and Sci-Fi stories in one gnarly 66 page comic book. Gross, gore, guest artists, grind-house style goodness!
What the Hell is KURU Anyway?
This phenomenal team would like their associated, Rod, to clue you lovely folks in about what exactly this sexy new book is all about!
Kuru is a horror comic book series that creator Brian Flint has been working on for the past year. The stories lean towards a Monster Movie/Science Fiction vibe with elements of Body Horror and a few Occult themes. His goal was to create a comic with crazy visuals, scary supernatural creatures and that grisly gory good stuff we all love to see in our favorite horror media. Couple that with unique, funny, likable characters and BLAZAM! You’ve got HELLBO-(ahem!)-you’ve got KURU!
This campaign has left us a little more than speechless. From the artwork to the professionally produced trailer to gripping storylines, Kuru #1 is more than a horror comic… it’s an experience. And in our humble opinion, it’s an experience everyone should partake in.
Drink heartily from the well of creativity being offered here my indie brethren, you are sure to have your thirst quenched!
Issue one and issue two packages available – “What you see, what you can see, what you think you know; it tilts.”
Show this campaign some love in its final days and get yourself some of these insanely creative comics and sweet swag too!
Derik Diaz is funding a print run for the over-sized second volume of his retro 90s action-adventure comic, The Adventures of Toad!
YES!! Get in on this guys! To quote the trailer, “Let’s destroy this goal with a webfooted kick to the face!”
MONSTERS! LOST WORLDS! UFOs! The strange and unknown! Karl Kesel and Tom Grummett finally finish the comic they began 17 years ago!
These dudes have a lofty goal, but totally doable with a book and team like this! Let’s make this happen! Also.. guys, these books take me back to 90’s X-Men.. and my nostalgic tears are flowing.
And that’s it for now! If you’ve got a Campaign you think belongs on our list, let us know!
