I have an addiction. Well, more than one, really. But if you take away caffeine, books, collectible toys, and music, then you’ll probably notice that I have a thing for comic books and all of the accoutrements that go along with being a comic nerd. And do you know what’s the best part of being an adult in this day and age? No, not that. No, not that either. Geez, it’s obviously the fact that fans can get in on the ground floor of up and coming comics through crowdfunding! For the record, it was in the title of this article but I’ll give you a pass since I’m excited to be able to introduce you to this Kickstarter Spotlight for Glow #1! See, if I ramble on long enough there’s usually a point to be made.
But seriously, this project comes to us from the leaders of the group that has continually kicked ass with their Skies of Fire series, all of which were funded through Kickstarter, too! I think I may have mentioned them a time or two, like here, here, and also here. But with this new comic, they’ve taken an entirely new direction. Focusing in on a pair of siblings, this adventure will explore not only a futuristic world where technology and magic have coexisted but they’ve gone so far as to give it its own language. Prominently featured within the art, this extra feature allows the team to tell stories inside of their primary tale, drawing the reader deeper into the world of Glow.
The project is fully funded already so they’ve got this one locked down. And having dealt with these folks before, I can tell you they delivered on each and every fundraiser they’ve had. The rewards are varied, just as they usually are. You can get digital copies of the comic, physical copies, and even a variety of other merchandise like buttons, posters, or artwork. There are also shirts, plush animals, and jewelry to be had if you prefer. It all hinges on which pledge level you choose as to what you will get.
For now, I’ve included the video from the fundraiser below. So make sure you check it out and then head over to the actual Kickstarter page itself to check out all the goodies.
This bad boy ends on June 9, 2016 so don’t delay. With less than two weeks left, rewards are going quickly!
