Kickstarter You Should Be Backing: The Adventures of Parker Reef-TO SAVE A SOUL by Christopher Campana

Hey folks! Here is another Kickstarter that we are excited about!!

 

Comic book writer and artist Chris Campana is running this campaign to self-publish a graphic novel called “The Adventures of Parker Reef – To Save a Soul”. The story is meant to be a tool for getting through loss. The preview art looks amazing and the story sounds breathtaking and heartfelt. The funds raised are intended to print the book and fund a foundation for children.

I want this book to be the kind of thing therapists have in their offices. The kind of book, people who have suffered tragedies, can look to for some kind of comfort. – Chris Campana

There are only 10 days left to support this amazing project. So get out there and do that thing!!

Kickstarter You Should Be Backing: Comics Comics #1 by Patton Oswalt & pals!

I mean, Patton Oswalt is helping to make this. Seriously, what are you waiting for, you leptons!? A flying spaghetti monster to invite you to Black Angus for a mixed green, buddy?!

Seriously though, this looks like a hip (but not too hip) anthology that should totally not be only half-funded with 5 days to go. So, Pop Culture Squad (that’s you guys)… go do that voodoo that you do so well*!

 

 

*In this case voodoo is a combination of you backing this cool project, and sharing it out to your respective social media accounts so that we might see gentle Patton and his amazing friends succeed in the independent endeavor.
