A couple of Kickstarters by Industry vets and one by a relative newcomer have crossed my desk and deserve some attention:
§ Batton Lash, one of the true gentlemen of comics, has a Kickstarter for a new Wolf and Byrd GN. it’s called The Werewolf of New York and it’s already funded but check it out, there are sure to be some good stretch goals.
§ The great and underrated Carol Lay is Kickstarting Murderville:
A semi-retired mobster and his family face down a sexy villain on a quaint Maine island in this 28-page full-color comic by Carol Lay.
This one has a ways to go and it’s a bit pricey but Lay is an industry treasure and hasn’t been heard from nearly enough of late, so go for it.
§ Finally, Ursula Murray Husted is Kickstarting The Lions Of Valetta: “An original full color graphic novel about cats, Malta, art history, philosophy, and the meaning of life. DISCLOSURE: Husted is an advertiser on this very site, however this book looks adorable and its already funded.
