Steve Conley Kickstarts his BLOOP Webcomic Graphic Novel at the Baltimore Comic-Con
Cartoonist and friend of the Baltimore Comic-Con Steve Conley has launched a Kickstarter campaign to help produce the first print collection of his webcomic graphic novel BLOOP.
BLOOP is the all-ages story of a little green space monkey who is looking to find the perfect tree. Along the way, he makes some friends and finds that not only his tree but the entire planet is threatened by robots bent on tearing the world apart.
Attendees of the Baltimore Comic-Con will be able to see preview art from the book and a Baltimore Comic-Con exclusive print will be available.
In addition to being an accomplished cartoonist (Steve has won an Eagle Award and received nominations for the both the Eisner and Harvey Awards), Steve has been a longstanding contributor to the Baltimore Comic-Con since its very first year. Steve designed the Baltimore Comic-Con’s initial logo and helps with the design and graphics of the show to this day. Steve’s space monkey BLOOP was even the mascot of the Baltimore Comic-Con for a few years.
The Kickstarter launched on August 14, 2012 and will run until 8pm ET on September 17, 2012.
The BLOOP collection will showcase the first chapter of the story and will be a giant 10 inches x 15 inches. The book will have a case-bound, hardback cover with a golden foil stamp and a full-color, wraparound dust jacket. The interior will be 28-pages of full-color printing on thicker, 100# satin text paper.
