The alternative blog/art website Strange Kids Club are planning the release of their next SK Comics Magazine and this time they’ve turned to Kickstarter for funding. The comics mag features independent comic creators as well as articles, both of which are meant to disturb the child that lives inside us all.
There are a bunch of wicked backing options for the project, plus you get to support indie creators. You can check out more details below along with a trailer, and an exclusive premiere of 3 pages from the comic.
Pop culture blog/art shop Strange Kids Club has launched a crowdfunding campaign in support of Cassette Death, the forthcoming issue of SK Comics Magazine. Genetically engineered to offend, entertain and excite your inner child, SK Comics Magazine combines indie comic art with articles that explore the seedy underbelly of pop culture nostalgia.
Chock full of irreverent, nostalgic and humorous content, Cassette Death is the the first ever full-length Strange Kid comic. Also included within the pages of SK Comics Magazine are an in-depth interview with iconic artist/toy designer James Groman (Madballs, My Pet Monster), twisted parodies of films such as Hellraiser, The Thing and The Gate and much more!
This issue features contributions from such talented artists and writers as Dean Rankine (Mad Magazine), Aaron Alexovich (Invader Zim), Chris Savino (Dexter’s Labratory), Glen Brogan (Cartoon Network), Mike Wasion (Fangoria), Benito Gomez (Tales from the Bully Pulpit) and Strange Kids Club’s own Rondal Scott, among others.
In a week’s time, the Kickstarter campaign has raised more than half of its $6,000 goal. In addition to physical and digital issues of the book, rewards to those who support the project include shirts, toys and advertising space. Successful funding will be put toward paying the contributors and operational costs in order to publish the issue. The magazine is already 75% complete, with the final product expected to be released in April.
