Crusade Comics’ seventh Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign, Zombie-Sama: Dorm of the Dead Kickstarter Exclusive is now live and taking the undead to school by quadrupling its original $2,500.00 funding goal.
Through Kickstarter and alongside its Indiegogo Exclusive counterpart, Dorm of the Dead nears $30K, as Crusade Comics’ #nofanleftbehind campaign strategy reaches beyond the traditional single crowdfunding route. “Co-creator John Broglia and I, along with everyone on #TeamZS are just overjoyed by the amazing outpouring of support our ‘little zombie book that could’ has garnered in its first week of crowdfunding.” Stated publisher Billy Tucci. “All 104-pages of story, art and lettering are complete, as is 75% of the coloring. We cannot wait to send the book to the printer before the campaign ends and start fulfillment!”
NEW PERK ADDED: SHI: GATECRASHER ASHCAN!
Crusade has also added a new perk, the Shi: Gatecrasher Ashcan Edition. Gatecrasher will be Crusade’s next original Shi graphic novel launching this summer. The cover features the iconic Ana Ishikawa, standing alongside Billy’s original conception of Gētokīpā, the character who would eventually evolve into the blockbuster indie sensation. Shi: Gatecrasher finds Ana Ishikawa trapped in comic book, “time.” There she must battle through decades of genres fighting alongside some of the greatest public domain and indie comic characters in history to find her way home! The Ashcan and accompanying 11″ X 17″ print bundle is offered at just $35.00 (both are available as individual add-ons as well).
