With that, may we present the CXC Crowdfunding Bi-Monthly Roundup, July 15, 2017 edition.
Dating apps, Knights, and a kidnapped Princess come together in this fun LGBTQ friendly fantasy tale. Swipe right today!
Happily Ever Aftr is about a kidnapped princess who uses a dating app to find knights to come and rescue her. It also follows the princesses captor, Gretchen Grimhold, as she comes to terms with what love means to her. For generations, the firstborn Grimhold child has kidnapped a bride for marriage. So naturally, Gretchen follows tradition and kidnaps a beautiful bride for herself. This, unfortunately, does not sit well with her father who is not so accepting. Gretchen must now come to terms with her own sexuality as well as deal with the pressures put on her by her father.
The full graphic novel will continue the story of the kidnapped Princess Emily and her captor Gretchen. We’ll explore the struggle Gretchen has trying to understand how she fits into the world as she discovers her own sexuality. We’ll meet more hilariously pathetic suitors that try to rescue Princess Emily. And hopefully, the King will stop being a butt about the whole thing! The Happily Ever Aftr graphic novel is fun, heart-warming, and best of all THE WHOLE STORY.
A whole graphic novel?! You dang right a whole graphic novel. Over 110 pages of princesses, knights, dating apps, cheesy suitors, and self-acceptance.
Hooooweeee! It’s getting pretty gold in here! Come and throw some support and money at this amazing Graphic Novel project from Mr. Ricky Lima himself! Kickstarter has deemed this project worthy of the Gold standard and having supported the first book ourselves, we’re stoked to see what’s going to happen to all the Happily Ever Aftr characters. Will they find love, will they die excruciating deaths? Who knows?! Let’s make it happen people!
A murderous and brutal horror set against a backdrop of picturesque tranquility.
Everyone loves a disturbingly gruesome murder mystery.
But how many murders are too many?
Murder Most Mundane is an original graphic novel set in a tranquil, idyllic village where the type of murders are inventive and the murder rate is somewhat high….
Inspired by TV detective shows where, each week, we tune in to find another poor victim brutally slain – shock and horror echoing throughout the local community – but no-one ever mentions the exact same thing happened just last week.
Barely a day goes by without a cold blooded bludgeoning or a calculated cruel poisoning. The death rates in these small towns or villages is higher than most war zones.
Everyone remembers the murders – but no-one actually seems to care. Are we actually looking at a village full of serial killers?
Or, do the origins of this unusual status quo lie in the mythical traditions and unspoken dark secrets of the village’s historical past?
So we’re not sure who is going to be collecting the money for this one considering the team died in the trailer.. but we have faith it will find it’s way to SOMEONE who will send the swag! With all seriousness though, love the concept, love the art, love these guys! You’ll want to get your hands on this fantastic book and some of the great stuff that goes with it! So don’t miss out on pledging your support to this great Kickstarter project.. or they’ll murder you;)

Pre-orders are now open for Folklore Volume 1 hard copy edition! Volume one collects the first three issues of Folklore
Folklore is a superhero horror story that explores the aftermath of an era where the world’s greatest heroes have become the world’s deadliest threat in the blink of an eye. Most heroes are stripped of their powers, and the ones who remain are left twisted into shadows of their former selves — wandering the land crazed and without purpose. Survivors must band together to build new lives in the aftermath, but the more time passes the harder it is to remember the difference between history and the legends that remain.
The awesome guys from Random Encounter Comics are now taking pre-orders for Folklore Volume 1!
