STRETCH GOAL UNLOCKED!!!! NEW ONE ANNOUNCED!!!
4 months ago – Tue, Oct 25, 2022 at 08:22:57 PM

WOOOOO!!! Thank you all so much!!!! We've hit that first stretch goal and unlocked the F*ck Around and Find Out metal bookmark for all physical tier backers!!

Next up, DID YOU KNOW, Miss Medusa's circus employs monsters from all 7 continents?  Her distinguished competitors, at best, only have 6.  That's because Ms. Shelly Shellycoat-pipe is a Ningen, the only known living Antarctic Mythic.*  And if we hit our next stretch goal, we'll be making these lovely postcards of her for all physical backers!!!

*(The cowardly rumor that Shelly's just an albino Mermaid from Nassau is a complete fabrication, and Miss Medusa's Monstrous Menagerie Ltd will absolutely sue anyone who perpetuates it.  Thank you for your time.)

While we work on raising the money to keep the circus in business, we have a few other projects to show off!!

-----

One of our FAVORITE creators, Felipe Cagno, has launched another issue of THE FEW AND CURSED, which is a book we never pass up on Kickstarter!! He is a phenomenal creator and always delivers beautiful books we love to read!! BACK IT HERE RIGHT NOW!!

Red is back doing what she does best... survive! They're continuing The Great Deluge storyline with another chapter after an immensely successful campaign last year with issue #7 following the events of the Crows of Mana'Olana story (collected as a trade paperback and available on this campaign as well!)

THE FEW AND CURSED: The Great Deluge is a brand new mini-series that pits the Redhead in a race against the Rapture Klan as they search for the Ark of Noah to trigger a new apocalypse and reset the world - no matter how many people are killed in the process.

This is the Kickstarter campaign to publish the 32-page issue #8, the second part of a planned new six-issue mini-series and the first appearance of The Rapture Klan!

Second, we have another comic led by a badass lady -- SCORPIANA! BACK IT HERE RIGHT NOW!

Set in a world populated with colorful metahuman heroes and villains, Elena Santos, aka Scorpiana, and her sister Maria were abducted and suffered unspeakable experimentation through exposure to the mysterious substance called Quantium. It proved fatal to the many previous test subjects before them, but the Santos sisters survived! Initially left for dead, Elena awoke in a mass grave, hell-bent on revenge and determined to rescue her sibling!

Scorpiana's mission of vengeance continues in issue #4 as she and her allies move to confront Pluto Mohr, the mad scientist keeping Elena's sister Maria incapacitated. Just as he moves to dissect her alive, Maria awakens! What will this mean for her -- and for Mohr?

With a badass story AND boobies, where can you go wrong? :P 

Finally, we have our good friends at Dren Productions, who have launched a DUNGEONS AND DIMWITS comic!! BACK IT HERE RIGHT NOW!!

Bringing comics and D&D together!!! If we can't poke fun at ourselves, who can we poke fun at? Imagine those silly and sarcastic comments made by the players actually being things their characters say in the game. Imagine those crazy situations that come up while playing being illustrated. This is what this book is about, and this is why we created it. We have to laugh at ourselves and the silly things we do when we play. Art for the book is by the awesome Kodaris,  a self-taught digital artist from Argentina,  specializing in humorous cartoons and character design.
