Here’s a round-up of some of the latest crowdfunding comics projects that have caught my eye.
Starting this past Monday is Slasher Royal #1 from Afterlight Comics.
This is the first issue of a five-issue mini-series. There are many different physical and digital reward tiers here.
After the murder of his father, follow a young man's hunt for revenge as he goes up against some of the most evil Slashers of all time.

Over on the new crowdfunding portal - Crowdfundr - is a new comic from Blue Fox Comics. System Error has digital and physical rewards, with both issues #1 and #2 available.
System Error follows ITTO, a tourism robot turned relic, on his quest through a deserted British landscape to fulfill his primary function: to help people. Through 6 issues, the reactivated ITTO overcomes many challenges posed by a robot-strewn environment no longer controlled by humanity.
There is even a free preview to check out.
