Lead City by Eric Borden and Kyle Brummond on Kickstarter Now! Who’s With Me?

Spring 1873 – Colman Cooper heads West with his wife Pearl and son Isaiah on their way to new beginnings in San Francisco. The hopes and dreams awaiting them at journey’s end are foremost in their minds as the wagon train sets out from Independence, Missouri. But the perils of the trail to California are many and exacts a heavy toll.

Falling behind the wagon train, they decide to take a southerly route to avoid the winter weather. They’re deep in the Nevada territory when this decision proves disastrous as they’re forced to ground by a deadly blizzard.

When the storm breaks, Colman spies a town on the horizon, or is it two towns? Colman knows it’s their only chance and he heads out to get help. The Cooper family is forced to seek refuge in Dugganville where they become stranded at the worst possible time. The town is host to a deadly annual contest that has attracted a collection of thieves and killers from far and wide. Without his good wife’s counsel Colman finds his way into Lead City.

Pitted against seven deadly fighters, Colman must find a way to outlast his adversaries in the anything goes, tooth and nail battle for survival. Who will win the richest prize in the West? A raven-haired pistolera with a penchant for lullabies. A jack Mormon looking for redemption. A Nepali man-of-war with a legendary blade. An Aussie sporting a mean Irish brogue and a chip on his shoulder. A Confederate guerrilla looking for a fortune. A Buffalo Soldier looking for revenge and a Shaolin Monk looking for a challenge. Ten thousand dollars goes to the best.

Before Deadwood, Before Tombstone, Before Durango there was Lead City.

WE ARE THE TWILIGHT by Benjamin Morse on Kickstarter Now!

We Are the Twilight, is a new 4 issue comic series created, written, drawn, colored and lettered by Benjamin Morse.  It is on Kickstarter now.  Here’s the synopsis…

Enter the story’s hero– Captain Lancet. He’s a 1930’s All-American crime buster* who accidentally creates the world’s greatest villain before waking up a century in the future. He’ll need to adjust to a strange new world– Fritz Lang’s Metropolis with some cyberpunk dystopia sprinkled in– if he wants to overthrow the totalitarian vampire cult that now dominates the future.*some of these things are not, strictly speaking, the truth.

If you’re a fan of Buck Rogers and Flash Gordon serials, Fleischer Bros Superman cartoons, Golden Age Comics or old school horror and crime stories, We Are Scarlet Twilight is made for you! I hope you’ll check it out!

Here are some preview pages.  

We Are the Twilight Kickstarter offers digital as well as individual issues. Because Morse wants to get his comic to as many people as possible, the digital issue is only two bucks. I spend more than that on daily iced coffee!

THE DUSK by Segura, Little & Hahn on Kickstarter Now!

THE DUSK, is a new graphic novel created by Alex Segura & Elizabeth Little (writers) and David Hahn (artist), with Ellie Wright (colorist) and Taylor Esposito (letterer).  It is on Kickstarter now.  Here’s the synopsis…

Down below the abandoned skyscrapers and crumbling colonial architecture, beneath the buzzing lights and ragged billboards, is a fading, floundering city propped up by vice, extortion, and fear. This is BLACKSTONE—a dark, mirror image of Boston or Philadelphia. A city whose history dates back to the earliest days of our nation.

A once-mighty industrial titan—now teetering on the edge of oblivion. A city that used to mean something. Blackstone public defender Jaime Nuñez – former baseball hero, now a divorced dad to a precocious teen – is always trying to do his best. But the criminal justice system is not without limits. When Jaime comes into an unexpected fortune and some surprising, super heroic tools, he discovers there might be another, more direct way to do some actual good in the world.

Here are some preview pages.  Click on them to see a larger view.

The Dusk Kickstarter offers digital, individual issues as well as an all-in-one graphic novel. There are variant covers (Gabriel Hardman, Derek Charm, Rebekah Isaacs, Jamal Ingle, Francesco Francavilla, Howard Chaykin), t-shirts, and more that can be added on.
