Ax-Wielder Jon Crowdfunding Now
Live On Zoop
From Nick Pitarr, Ax-Wielder Jon is now live on the comics crowdfunding platform Zoop.
“Nick Pitarra’s Ax-Wielder Jon’s Final Chop”
Last year, Ax-Wielder Jon took the crowdfunding industry by storm, bringing in a whopping $204,000, and becoming Zoop’s largest campaign to date. But Ax-Wielder Jon is not done yet!
The campaign is re-opening for a limited window starting Monday, March 27th. Because the book took a while to complete, the team is offering one last chance for supporters to get in on the bloody, violent action before it goes to print! This will help the team finalize the print run, and make sure everyone who wants the book gets it.
Ax-Wielder Jon is the first in a planned 3 volume story from Eisner nominated creator Nick Pitarra (The Manhattan Projects). With painted covers by the legendary Das Pastoras, the book is a premium oversized hardcover edition with over 144 pages! Other contributors to the book include Eisner Award-winning editor, Chris Stevens (Little Nemo: Dream Another Dream), and book designer Ben Didier (Little Bird).
Praised by industry veterans such as Jonathan Hickman, Bill Seinkiewicz, Frank Quitely and others, Ax-Wielder Jon is the ultimate representation of Pitarra’s creator-owned vision. Rewards include the book, art prints, and more. Some extras include pinups of the titular character drawn by industry mainstays, such as Chris Samnee, David Marquez, and many others.
Zoop CEO, Jordan Plosky shares: “We have such a soft spot in our heart for this project, and we’re happy to be able to do something that other crowdfunding platforms can’t do for this book. Re-opening it and providing a “Final Order Cutoff” of sorts is the kind of thing that benefits creators and fans. We’re excited to be able to accommodate this for everyone, and can’t wait to hold Ax-Wielder Jon in our hands!”
Zoop is the new home for creator-owned crowdfunding. For publishers and creators, Zoop is an all-in-one pre-order, production, fulfillment, and marketing solution that connects them directly to their fans.
