Fund Me Friday: Happy Astronaut, Wasted Space & Shed
Some of the latest crowdfunding comics projects
Here are some of the latest crowdfunding projects that are worth looking at. If you have one, please let me know - I would be happy to feature it.
Over on Zoop is Happy Astronaut #1.
By Matt Fife & Matt Rodgers, it is described as “kind of like Star Trek: TOS meeting Adventure Time in the sci-fi/fantasy section of your local used bookstore.”
Join Happy (the probably totally professional…) Astronaut on his adventures spanning the cosmos!
There are digital and print offers of the comic, sketches, and retailer copies.
From Vault Comics is Wasted Space Delux Edition on Kickstarter.
This gigantic, deluxe omnibus edition of WASTED SPACE is an artifact so singular, so powerful, so incredibly irreverent, it could destroy the whole galaxy. For the first time in the history of the universe, all 25 issues of Vault’s groundbreaking, beloved science fiction series, WASTED SPACE, have been collected in one beautiful, oversized (yes, it’s bigger!), 672 page hardcover edition.
Billy Bane is a prophet who got it all wrong, and the galaxy has been burning ever since. All he wants is to waste away in the darkest corner of space with his best pal Dust, a supercharged Fuq bot. But when a new prophet comes calling, Billy is summoned to save the galaxy he's at least partially responsible for destroying.
Too bad he couldn't care less.
Michael Moreci (Barbaric, Revealer) and Hayden Sherman (Dark Spaces: Wildfire) have thrown Preacher in a blender with Philip K. Dick. Take a sip and get wasted.
Vault Comics have spoken to the creators for their thoughts:
Written by Michael Moreci, drawn by Hayden Sherman, colored by Jason Wordie, and lettered by Jim Campbell, WASTED SPACE has been hailed as one of the greatest sci-fi comics ever created. At 672 pages in length, standing 11 inches tall, the WASTED SPACE COSMIC COLLECTION has so much story in one place, it could collapse the multiverse. (Seriously, ask any physicist.)
"From the very start, WASTED SPACE has been a labor of love for everyone involved, and being able to collect the entire story in one gorgeous hardcover is so rewarding,” said Moreci. “I'm thrilled we're offering it directly to readers via Kickstarter so they can have it, read it, and put this enormous, beautiful book on their shelves. If there's one thing I know for sure, it's that Billy, Dust, and Molly would agree: you go big, or you go home. It doesn't get much bigger than this massive tome!"
"Readers were always the thing pushing Wasted Space further, added Sherman. “Without our readers the book wouldn’t have been able to turn from a five issue mini series into the 25 issue galaxy/dimension-spanning saga it became. It’s incredible to me then that through Kickstarter we can come back around and directly bring those same readers a fully collected beautiful mega-book containing the entirety of Billy, Dust, Molly and Squeee’s mad adventures. It’s a wonderful thing to be a part of."
There is a digital option, as well as large print options!
On Kickstarter from Blue Fox Comics is Shed - check out my advance review.
It doesn’t matter if it’s happy if all you’re looking for is an ending. Small towns and small minds versus big dreams and big lobsters.
With not only print and digital options, there are also some excellent Blue Fox Comics to check out.
