Comics maven Robert J. Kelly, proprietor of the blog Hey Kids, Comics! (a wonderful collection of comics essays and images that Kevin Dilmore turned me on to), announced that we was using it to fund his dream project, Ace Kilroy. Ace Kilroy is going to be a web comic created by RJK and Dan O'Connor.
It's 1937. Ace is a WWI veteran hired by FDR to fight the world's monsters (Dracula, Frankenstein's monster, etc), whom the Nazis are planning to recruit to fight as their allies.
This will be a daily online comic, with Sundays in color. These things (serve space and electricity to begin with) take startup funding. You can pledge as little as $1. This looks very cool.
The strip has a blog. You can find out more and pledge if you like at Ace's Kickstarter page. Like any good fund-raiser, they're giving away all sorts of swag, from buttons to signed TPB collections (when they eventually come out), plus the coup de grace, a chance to be a character in the strip.
