Two different comic projects are up on Kickstarter now that you should check out and support.
The first one is Zombie Highway, a tale of the zombie apocalypse in West Virginia that Jason Pell, Roberto Viacava (Adventures in Superman) and Eduardo Bazan created over a decade ago (before Walking Dead and other zombie stories).
They are holding a Kickstart to produce a full hard cover 200 page collection of the series, most of which is out of print and hard to find, plus new material. There will be new coloring of formerly black and white pages and touched up art.
The story is about four men who steal a mysterious package for a client. Then zombies start to appear. Now they must work to stay alive from both zombies and people as they try to the package to their client so they can get paid.
Contributing can get you Zombie Highway postcards, pdfs, physical books, t-shirts, copies of Jason’s other books Season’s End and Suicide 5, original cover art, and a chance at being a zombie in the book. The first 250 backers (only at 96 backers of this writing) who pledge $25 or more will also get a limited print for their help.
The project has another four days and a little of $2,000 to meet their $10,000.
Next is Imposter a 100 page graphic novel broken into four self-contained parts each in a different genre; written by James Patrick (Green Arrow, Batman), drawn by Martin Szymanksi, coves by Victor Santos (Mice Templar, Furious), and published by 21 Pulp.
Imposter is the story of how the four greatest superheroes are all really just one man. Four different heroes for any kind of threat. Now he is trying to train a replacement to take over his deception, who happens to have his own plans.
Pledge levels include ones for the book, pdfs, trading cards, t-shirt, posters, prints, sketches, get drawn into the book, plaques, mugs, pens, and more. Backers will receive each part of the series they complete it.
