Grimwood Crossing Vol. 1 & 2

This one has been a favorite of mine ever since Conner Bartel (writer and creator) put up a free preview on reddit.com/r/comicbookcollabs. It’s a fast-paced supernatural western that entices the reader with its outstanding cover art and keeps you hooked with a suspense-filled story and jaw-dropping old school horror art.

PLOT:

“Grimwood Crossing is the biggest town in the grim old west. Vampires, Werewolves, and Zombies are part of the everyday struggle for the townsfolk. That’s why Grimwood’s Sheriff also has the added job title of monster hunter. It’s a dangerous job so a replacement must always be arranged. With the help of his young, scat-talking apprentice, the Sheriff must fend off a vengeful outlaw with demonic powers.”

WHAT THEY NEED:

The goal they have set is $3,000. This will go to finishing up Vol. 2 of the series with the majority going to the creators and the rest to shipping or printing.

WHY YOU SHOULD BACK IT:

Conner notes that isn’t the team’s first Kickstarter for the project and assures potential backers that they are a trusted creative team that delivers: “After creating 3 issues, succeeding in a previous campaign, and self-publishing the comics afterward, we have proven we are capable, trustworthy creators… And, same as last campaign, the book is 95% done already.”

Synthetics #1 

Synthetics caught my eye with its insane robot gladiator cover. A lone gladiator robot stands presenting the head of a slain robot enemy to a roaring coliseum. It’s a fantastic eye-catching cover that teases a world that doesn’t seem too far away.

PLOT:

“The Synthetics #1 is a 56-page comic featuring three bizarre stories of robot life, in which we see how different robots’ lives intersected with a robot revolt on Mars.”

WHAT THEY NEED:

The set goal is $1,200. “Most of the revenue will go to pay printing and shipping costs. Anything beyond that will go to help us pay our artists.”

WHY YOU SHOULD BACK IT:

It’s a 56-page anthology about a robot revolt on Mars! How freakin’ cool is that! Creator Julian Darius adds that he has also been involved in eight previous Kickstarters and knows how to see a project to completion.

Hell Cross

Bullets. Rust. And blood.  The art speaks for itself in this gritty noir – It’s dirty, its sun-scorched, and it looks like it was drawn with a prison rigged tattoo gun. We absolutely need to see this book completed.

PLOT:

Welcome to Eden City. A place where vices and virtue coexist in their maximum splendor and freedom. A veteran NYC Metropolitan Police Detective now employed by Eden City is tasked with solving its first series of killings that are shaking the foundations of a supposedly impeccable system. Every clue suggests a reason, every proof indicates a certainty, if the blood-letting isn’t stopped, it will surely continue its course.

WHAT THEY NEED:

$1,800, but this crew is pushing on to hit their stretch goals! “The funds necessary to complete “Hell cross” graphic novel and a good foundation for future projects.”

WHY YOU SHOULD BACK IT:

Its an old school film noir updated in a gritty fantasy utopia setting. The story plus this art makes it look like a solid book that we’d love to see bagged, boarded, and on shelves!
