Hey, folks! It has been a little while since I last posted a Kickstarter Spotlight but I ran across this one completely by accident and loved it! It has only a few weeks left so I figured there is no time like the present. The Girl Who Kept Night In Her Closet is a book about a little girl with enormous power or at least an equally gigantic imagination. It’s up to you to decide exactly where reality exists and fantasy begins. But that is definitely part of the joys of childhood, right?
Continue below for more on the story and campaign, and to watch the Kickstarter video presentation.
If the look of the new movie adaptation of Stephen King’s IT isn’t quite doing it for you and you’d prefer to stick with the 1990 TV miniseries adaptation starring Tim Curry as Pennywise the clown, a new documentary is on the way you’ll be interested in learning about.
The documentary is titled Pennywise: The Story of IT, and aims to dig into the story behind the TV miniseries’ creation. The makers of the doc have obtained over two hours of previously unseen behind-the-scenes footage for the project, and have already set up over 20 interview guests, including the great Tim Curry himself.

I was introduced to Cthulhu back in the early to mid 90s when a friend in junior high turned me onto Metallica, and soon I heard their amazing instrumental “Call of Ktulu” on their Ride the Lightning album. I was big into reading lyrics back then, and when I got to Metallica’s next album, Master of Puppets and I heard The Thing That Should Not Be, a section of the lyrics stuck with me. Years later in college I took a Horror Films and Fiction class and read H.P. Lovecraft’s short story, Call of Cthulhu and suddenly it all came together. My borderline obsession with Lovecraftian horror and Cthulhu has spilled over to me young daughter. A few years ago I picked up a copy of C is for Cthulhu at New York Comic Con, and the rest was history.
Now the creators of that book, Jason Ciaramella and Greg Murphy, are back with the follow-up, Sweet Dreams Cthulhu, which they are raising for on Kickstarter.
If you’re one of the many who grew up enjoying the many great works of the legendary puppet master Jim Henson, there’s a unique new Kickstarter campaign underway you may be interested in.
For this Kickstarter Spotlight, we look at a campaign to raise some funds in support of a permanent Jim Henson exhibition at the Museum of the Moving Image. The exhibition will feature lots of familiar Henson puppets, some prototypes, sketches, and more.
You can find full details on the crowdfunding campaign and watch the video pitch for it featuring Neil Patrick Harris below.
Hands down, nothing beats getting in on the ground floor of an indie comic. I have yet to be disappointed with anything that involves so much energy and excitement as a creator owned and published comic. Long ago it was difficult to get these projects off the ground but thanks to Kickstarter, it’s a hell of a lot easier these days. For instance, Justin Gray‘s newest labor of love is Jail Bait & Trailer Trash.
I got the chance to see an almost final copy and it is everything you’d expect from one of the dudes that brought you Sex and Violence: Volume 2 a couple of years ago. Read on for more information!
