EPIC MISADVENTURES OF DEATHBAG: HOLIER THAN THOU EDITION

By Julio A. Guerra

Julio was one of the first indy comic book creators I met face to face and he set a pretty high bar for all those I would meet after him. He was humble, energetic, and eager to share knowledge about the world of indy publishing. Deathbag was his tentpole character and had stretched through 2 issues at the time when I met him. Now he’s onto his 4th issue which will be collected in this TPB. I even had the privilege to guest write a story for this edition.

PLOT :

“Deathbag is a grim reaper who deals with everyday human life such as going the movies, going to see his favorite heavy metal band, going grocery shopping, and more.”

WHAT THEY NEED :

As of now, Julio is about 30% there from a goal of $3k. He needs a boost to help him reach his goal.

WHY YOU SHOULD BACK IT :

I think what drew me to Deathbag first was his design and I liked how he shared a lot of the same frustrations I did. The books are some fun, quick flip through that will get you a few quality chuckles.

The Fist

By Jordan Kroeger

Hmmm… “The FIST, a comic series with 130+ pages of a guy punching people” Why not!

Besides the straightforward pitch, I admired how The FIST nailed an indy feel for a synthwave comic. The comic is full of pastel neon colors with some great combinations that splash off the page. It’s a comic that I want to hold in my hands while I blast Perturbator or Carpenter Brut through my headphones.

PLOT :

A man (who punches) and his wife (who’s a spaceship)are on the run from the EVIL SPACE ARMY. Over-the-top ridiculous fights ensue.

WHAT THEY NEED :

$3,600 and they’re about a third there. This will all go to collecting previous issues of The FIST

WHY YOU SHOULD BACK IT :

Because it looks too much freakin’ fun! If you’re a fan of the art like I am, there are many rewards that feature prints and pin-ups from the comic.

Electric Alice

By Amara

I really had to dig for this one and I’m glad I did. Amara’s art style is going to be beautiful for this SciFi retelling of Alice In Wonderland. This is also her first graphic novel that she’s done entirely by herself — so all the more reason to back this project.

PLOT :

Alice is curious, and she has always been curious. An ambitious but inexperienced pilot, she signs up for a solo flight into unexplored space, stubbornly ignoring repeated warnings by her peers of the dangers of her expedition. She successfully arrives just beyond the furthest known boundaries of the galaxy, only to be snared by the gravity of a massive black abyss. Terrible wonders await Alice on her journey. Follow her through the rabbit hole and find out for yourself.

WHAT THEY NEED :

$2,000, which is quite a modest goal for a graphic novel that will be printed. “Electric Alice will be a fully illustrated, perfect bound softcover graphic novel. The interior artwork will be created using traditional media, such as watercolor and ink, and hand-lettered.”

WHY YOU SHOULD BACK IT :

If you weren’t sold by the art, Amara also teases that this isn’t the same Alice in Wonderland we’re used to, “You may meet some faces that seem familiar, but do not trust that you know their story, and be prepared for something completely alien.”

Thank you for checking out the Crowdfunding Roundup – May 2018  |  by Anthony Cleveland



After decades of lurking the backroom of his beloved comic shop, Anthony Cleveland released his first comic Silver Skin issue #0 in 2017. He spends most of his time tweaking his upcoming projects, reading an unhealthy amount of horror shorts, and slaving away at his day jobs.
