1. RIPPAVERSE (ISOME #1 CAMPAIGN)
With all the talk around this right now it would be wrong for us not to include it, created by a You tuber known as Eric July AKA Youngrippa59. This popular speaker has really come out at the industry swinging. His has made some bold promises and with the amount he has already raised during his campaign it is clear that he is here to stay. We can not wait to see where he goes and we hope it all works out for him and his team.
$3,248,011.69 Total Revenue and counting is insane, well done!
Avery Silman was once an entry-level hero known as Isom in the city of Florespark, Texas shortly after gaining his special abilities. A certain event had him hang up his suit, and now he stays on the outskirts of the city, living as a rancher.
Avery’s sister, Altona, gives him a call and wants him to visit an old friend by the name of Darren Fontaino. Another family friend that was interning with Altona has gone missing and she last heard that she was dealing with Darren. But Darren has much changed since he was hanging out with Avery when they were young. He’s a cold-blooded shot-caller and one of the most feared men in the city.
This visit turns into one of the longest days in Avery’s life. Around these parts, people call ‘special beings’ Excepts. And unfortunately for Avery, he has the luxury of running into some of them. The Alphacore and Yaira have their own set of conflicts. A man built like a tank by the name of Santwan reappears and he’s had previous confrontation with Avery. So what happens with Avery and Darren’s meeting? Who and where is the family friend? Just grab Isom #1: Ill-Advised Pt. 1 and find out for yourself!Written by the founder of Rippaverse Publishing, Eric July, this book not only serves as the beginnings of a new character, but also as a launching pad for what will inevitably be an ever-expanding comic book universe. With pencil and ink work from industry veteran Cliff Richards and color-work from Gabe Eltaeb, this book could only be an intriguing, explosive experience. Letterer Eric Weathers applied his undeniable touch to help bring this 96-page book to life.
2. Amputation Capital
Came across this one while scrolling the kickstarter projects for something that would stand out, sometimes it feels a little like scrolling a social media feed..just far less toxic.
Only problem with this campaign is that the physical copies only ship to some countries, ours not included. I am sure they have there reasons, just would of been cool to get a physical copy of the book..maybe in the future we will.
Campain: Amputation Capital
In the mean streets of the Hollywood Hills lurks a seedy salesman waiting for polite society to discard a seemingly rich and powerful person.
Alfie is that salesman, and a damn good sales and acquisitions agent he is. Employing tactics of manipulation and weaponizing public opinion, Alfie offers you a contract. The contract is a simple exchange; Alfie wants your celebrity skin. Who would buy it?
Amputation Capital is a horror comic series by Neil Gibson, Raymond Tyler and Andre Risso, published by TPub comics. The book is 120 pages, fully colored by the forever talented Liezl Buenaventura and Agnese Pozza, lettering by Jed McPherson and Kat Jackson.
3. CHEEKY - a NSFW graphic novel
Yep, this has some mature content..but if you know us well enough you know that we are tottaly ok with this kind of thing, plus this project is really cute. I love the idea of showing something that is mature with fun stylized art work, it just brings more lightness to the topic which is exactly what this team looks like they want to do.
Jump over and check this project out, really solid design and a great team involved. I can not wait to get my physical copy!
This project is already funded, but still worth backing.
CHEEKY is a 50-page graphic novel.
With four stories, drawn by some of comics' top talent, who have all come together in the spiciest graphic novel you'll read this year. If you're a fan of comics like Sunstone or Smut Peddler, you'll love CHEEKY's funny, emotional, character-driven erotica.
Return to see our indie crowdfunding line up for September..comeing soon!
