Many celebrities and well known writers and producers have been using the Kickstarter to fund independently made projects, anything from movies to books. This site has even inspired those from Winston Salem to use it to fund their upcoming comic book, Grave Soldiers (Part 1 of 4).
Writers Jeff Marvin of Winston Salem & Ben Soreff team up with artist Jeffery Zacholl look to the public by using Kickstarter to fund this 40-page full color comic book which is meant to be the first volume of a four-part series. Once the project is successfully funded, they hope to have the comic book completed by January 2014.
Pledges for Kickstarter can be as low as $1 and every dollar helps to make this project happen! Pledge today to help these up-and-coming creators reach their goal of $11,500 before October 5th. Plus backers are given all kinds of incentives, such as, mini posters, a mention in the thank you’s in the actual comic book and even a character inspired by your look for the top backers.
Below is a brief synopsis of Grave Solders:
“In the not-too-distant future, paranoia and fear force those who walk the halls of power to turn the American military machine loose around the globe. There are those who yell fascism and others who cry justice. But a few in uniform see an army stretched thin and young soldiers lost too soon. When a secret plan is hatched to train raw recruits to deal with the savagery of war, a new kind of horror is unleashed. On the other side of the country, another battle is beginning on the campus of a small Liberal Arts college. A protest of legendary proportions will be waged—one that would shake the very foundations of society itself—and it begins with an epic road trip. These two forces clash on an isolated island and when they do, the unthinkable happens. You get un-dead warriors. You get a bloody mess. You get…Grave Soldiers.”
