Comicker Press, a digital-to-print indie publisher, is running a Kickstarter to bring a five book publishing slate to print. That’s a fairly wide variety of product, though you can mix and match which comics you want as rewards.
What specifically are they looking to bring into the physical world? The Casebook of Rabbit Black: Volume 2 by Kate Sherron, Chimera by Tyler Ellis, Kyrie by Matt Crotts, and Waking Life by Ben Humeniuk, and the graphic novella Some Kind of Blue Moon, written by Michael D. Stewart, illustrated by Thomas Boatwright, and lettered by James Greatorex.
This would be Comicker’s second foray into Kickstarter. Volume one of The Casebook of Rabbit Black was part of their first one last year. There’s plenty of sample art on the KS site and you can always look up the webcomics versions here: http://comickerdigital.com/read/
A year and a half after successfully launching their Comicker Press imprint via a Kickstarter campaign, Comicker LLC is back for “Season 2” with five new books in their just-launched Kickstarter campaign.
The campaign includes The Casebook of Rabbit Black: Volume 2 by Kate Sherron (the first volume of which was part of last year’s campaign), new series Chimera by Tyler Ellis, Kyrie by Matt Crotts, and Waking Life by Ben Humeniuk, and the graphic novella Some Kind of Blue Moon, written by Michael D. Stewart, illustrated by Thomas Boatwright, and lettered by James Greatorex.
“We had five books reach the point where they were ready for print at the about same time, and after crunching the numbers, we realized we could unite them all under a single campaign for just about twice what we raised through our last Kickstarter campaign, which was only two books,” said Sean E. Williams, co-founder of Comicker LLC. “Getting these books made as soon as possible, both for their creators and for readers, and with the same stand-out quality as our first two books, The Casebook of Rabbit Black: Volume 1 and Lost Angels: Volume 1, made ‘Season 2’ a no-brainer.”
The Casebook of Rabbit Black Volume 2 includes the next two extra-large issues of the comic series by Kate Sherron: “The Case of the Embroiled Ingénue” and “The Case of the Lady’s Finger.” Full color, 96 pages. MSRP $14.99. For readers 15 and up (due to violence and language).
Chimera: The Righteous & The Lost is written and illustrated by Tyler Ellis. The trade paperback includes the first six issues of Chimera, exclusive pin-ups and more. Full color, 168 pages. MSRP $19.99. For readers 15 and up (due to language and violence).
Kyrie: Part 1: The Curse of the Macedonian Scroll is by Matt Crotts. The trade paperback includes the first seven issues of Kyrie, exclusive pin-ups and more. Full color, 136 pages. MSRP $16.99. For readers 12 and up (due to violence).
Some Kind of Blue Moon is written by Michael D. Stewart, art by Thomas Boatwright, and lettering by James Greatorex. Includes the entire standalone graphic novella, 10 newly-created pages from Bert’s journal after the events of Some Kind of Blue Moon illustrated by Thomas Boatwright, concept art, a playlist, and exclusive pin-ups. Black and white interior art, 80 pages. MSRP $11.99. For readers 15 and up (due to language).
Waking Life: Book 1: Pleasant Places is written and illustrated by Ben Humeniuk. The digest-sized trade paperback includes the first four issues of Waking Life, exclusive pin-ups and more. Full color, 200 pages. MSRP $14.99. For readers 12 and up (due to school drama and fantasy violence).
In adding more print series to its line-up, Comicker LLC brings to readers an ever-expanding array of diverse creators, characters, and stories.
