The Magician: The Long Day Kickstarter is live!Standard
I just wanted to take a minute and point you guys to the Kickstarter that just dropped for the new book from Fifth Dimension Comics, The Magician: The Long Day.
Written by David M. Brown, with art by the mighty D.N.S. and letters and design by Robin Jones, The Magician is a violent look at the 70’s that drives into the dirt, grime, violence, and dark humor of professional killers, scumbags, criminals and more. Having gotten a look at things ahead of time, I can tell you it is disturbing, and funny, and well worth a look.
Check it out here.

Looking for a cool monster comic? Check out Monstrous from Greg Wright, Ken Lamung and Travis McIntire. They have reached what they set out to on Kickstarter but that’s no reason for you not to check out the book here.

It what has to be one of the most talked about new gear announcements in ages, Korg is releasing an analog poly synth for about $500! Check out the specs, videos, and more over at Synthtopia.

There Is Gravy On This Comic BookStandard
The Obscura Collected Edition is here, at least in digital form, and damn is it gorgeous. Physical copies won’t be far behind, I can’t wait to hold the actual book in my hands. Say, who is that smart, handsome fella with a blurb on the back cover?
Big thanks to Fifth Dimension Comics and everyone involved in Obscura, it is beautiful. I never thought I would get to have a cover blurb on a book, especially one this effing good.
Obscura: Collected Edition Kickstarter is live!Standard
If you are looking for some genuinely creepy and disturbing horror comics, you should really take a look at the Kickstarter for Obscura: Collected Edition from David Brown, D.N.S. and Fifth Dimension Comics. This is some very good stuff, you will not be sorry, lets make this happen, folks! You can view their campaign here.
Cool stuff from friends of The Gravy Age!Standard
If you aren’t in Northern California, you may not have seen this story on your news. A young boy by the name of Joey Sinco has been battling brain cancer, the University Of The Pacific and the Make-A-Wish foundation took some time to help Joey feel like the hero he is. You can watch the video here among the things done during the halftime of the game at UOP was a presentation of a custom cover of Joey and Captain America by local creators, and genuinely great guys Sean Miller and Travis Compton from Anchor Comics, who you may remember from one of our early episodes of the podcast where we talked to them a bit about making comics and more. That episode was recorded at my LCS The Launchpad. Which brings to the second thing I wanted to link to.
Mike from The Launchpad has a Kickstarter in progress called Night Of The Bloody Hooks, which is a set of horror themed adventure hooks for table-top RPG’s, they don’t need too much more to go, but if you are a gamer, go give it a look and if you can’t donate, please share. Thanks so much!
Let’s make Chewler happen folks!Standard
There is a new Kickstarter going on for Chewler a new book from friends of The Gravy Age David M. Brown (author of the creepy Obscura, that I loved) from Fifth Dimension Comics, with art by the brain-melting Shannon Gretzon from Exspastic Comics (that I interviewed here) and letterer Sean Fagan (who… isn’t Donald Fagan from Steely Dan? I didn’t think out this parenthetical ahead of time). What’s not to love about this book? Nazi’s? The internet loves those! I dare you to get into an argument online and see how long it takes for them to get mentioned. Aliens? Look, if you don’t know they run everything. Clones? Everybody wants a clone, but one that’s just dumb enough to go to work for you, because face it, it might rain out there and you don’t want to put on pants, besides, Rockford Files is on. Go check it out though folks, let’s make this a thing.* You can go check out the Kickstarter for Chewler here. And stay tuned for a review of Chewler, coming soon!
*Not a thing like we made Limp Bizkit, I was there, you were there, we all just stood by and let it happen. Jesus people…
The Horror Of Loon Lake Kickstarter is live!Standard
It’s all the way live kids. Go check it out, The Horror Of Loon Lake, it just went up today, and we can totally make this happen folks. Go check out the interview we did with Carl here and don’t forget that Smell A Rat is included in this project, which has a ton of cool stuff from a ton of cool people, including Stan Chou. Oh and remember in my Smell A Rat review I said I should write some sort of John Carpenter style opening credits music for it? Guess what makes an appearance in the video.. Although, in my head I keep thinking “Damn I didn’t master it!” Anyway, go check it out! It’s an awesome horror anthology, with a bunch of great artists involved. Toodles!
