My favorite independent author Justin Zimmerman has started a kickstarter project for one of my favorite comic books out there, Other Worlds. When I ran into the story line for the Robot Library, I immediately fell in love with it, and really got into the minimalistic story line. What was cool is that I was able to share this with a couple of nieces and nephews of mine, and they filled in the story letting their imaginations roam around the room for hours based on the story line. I am so pleased to see him doing his own thing, and this is another project that Comics Forge is more than happy to support. We donated 100 dollars towards this project because he has some original art for the robot library that is going to make one of my young nieces a very happy young lady.
The good part of this one is that he is meeting one of our criteria for funding a project, must be printed in the USA, and as he states:
Instead of going with an online printer for the trade paperback, I opted to do a special printing using a local press. And that’s where this Kickstarter campaign comes in. With your help, I can deliver professionally printed, signed and sketched graphic novels to your door…and you can help me offset the cost of an almost 50% increase in production costs to get copies together for ECCC and Stumptown. Together, we can stay local and make the Other Worlds pages shine on the highest quality paper possible!
So he is doing this right, and we are more than happy to have a couple of copies, and well we are not sure about the button ok? Don’t really need a button, like where am I going to put it, or I can give that away as well as a special bonus prize to someone.
Go right here to donate, and doing this is good for your Karma. He is already at the ½ way point, so make sure you get in there quickly if you want some of the awesomeness. They are giving away special hand done pages based on donation level, and those are going fast, so you need to trot or click on over to kickstarter today.
I’ll have to swing by his booth at Emerald City Comic Con.
