Lea Hernandez, a pioneering cartoonist in the American manga hybrid style of storytelling, is back with a Kickstarter campaign:
THE GARLICKS is a webcomic/graphic novel about a vampire girl, for girls. (But so far, guys have dug it a lot–I call this the My Little Pony Effect: if it’s good, it’s for everyone!) It’s my first all-ages book, and my first graphic novel in color. I’ll be serializing THE GARLICKS, three color pages a week, over the next year as a webcomic at http://thegarlicks.net.
When Pandora’s first story is complete and still piping hot, it’ll be collected into a full-color print trade of 148 pages, with an introduction by Jill Thompson, incredible creator of SCARY GODMOTHER! (Who better, right?)
