However, his incredible power comes at a great cost. He is cursed with only being able to jump backward, never forward, and is burdened with reliving his life in agonizing real-time, aging all the while. Jump back six days and he must live every minute of those days out again, arriving back where he started but now six days older.

Saver has seen our future, and our impending apocalypse. Yet, no matter how many times he goes back and no matter how far back he goes, he can’t steer us clear of armageddon. What would you do if you knew the world was going to end but couldn’t stop it? What if you could choose to live your life out repeating the best year of your life? Which year would it be? This is the question at the heart of this year’s most must-read comic event. SAVE NOW is a triumph of storytelling. A sci-fi story like none that has ever come before.

Crowdfunding Corner: Frontier explores mankind’s foray into colonizing space

Backer Beware: Crowdfunding projects are not guaranteed to be delivered and/or delivered when promised. We always recommend to do your research before backing.

Now live on Kickstarter, graphic novel publisher Magnetic Press has launched the sci-fi adventure, Frontier! From celebrated author and designer Guillaume Singelin—best known for his distinct blend of cartoon-ish, manga-styled characters in gritty, detailed environments—this premium 200-page graphic novel is produced by Studio 619 and is the creator’s most ambitious project to date. 

After 10 years designing and developing the next generation of exo-archaeological probes, scientist Ji-Soo is sidelined from her own project in a buyout by megacorp Energy Solution. Her attitude earns her a string of reassignments that ultimately land her on the Rock Breaker, an asteroid mining colony in orbit around Vespa. There, her first time in space, she discovers just how complex life beyond Earth can be.

Frontier is available in three physical formats: a trade paperback edition that will be available in retail stores next year, a premium hardcover edition that will only be available through the campaign and from Magnetic directly, and a deluxe limited-edition slipcase bundle. The bundle will include a numbered bookplate signed by the author, an etched metal “traveler ticket” bookmark, an exclusive 75mm 3D-printed statuette of one of the characters, and a 2” metal currency token. Only 250 bundles will be made available during the campaign.

The Frontier Kickstarter ends Friday December 1st.

Crowdfunding Corner: B-Sides Volume 1 drops a beat

Backer Beware: Crowdfunding projects are not guaranteed to be delivered and/or delivered when promised. We always recommend to do your research before backing.

B-Sides Volume 1 is a new slice-of-life series created and edited by Greg Bournenow live on Kickstarter! Born from the minds of alt culture enthusiasts from London to L.A., featuring the lead story by Mike London with vibrant and dreamlike artwork by Rich IvensHayley Dwan, and David Arguno, and animation by Theo DuberryB-Sides melds the everyday and the fantastical—putting a new spin on the essence of L.A.’s Dogtown counterculture.

At the center of it all is the B-Sides bar, the beating heart and soul of Sidetown, run by Gus, the barman, who lives in an old airstream in the parking lot. In front of the bar, on their bench, you’ll usually find Slippery Kev and his mate, Sketch – a Riff Rat. With their own speakeasy under the floorboards, The Riff Rats live among the other residents in their own, rat-sized world.

There’s a regular open mic night at the bar hosted by the slightly irregular Open Mike, who gets his name from being, well, open, too open… Next door is the vinyl record exchange, Sounds Good, run by the couple Sheena and Debs, who also run Sounds Good Radio from the back of the store. On the other side of the bar is Bodhi’s Taco truck where you can get the best tacos in town, that is unless ‘surf’s up’, then Bodhi and his sous chef Nacho are nowhere to be seen.

The vibrant world of B-Sides comes to life by scanning QR codes within the pages, featuring voiceover animation by Dex Carvey, as well as Third Wheel Comedy’s Mike Masilotti and Nolan Culver. Be on the lookout for more cameos in future stories and drop-ins to Open Mike’s Open Mic night, a pop-up animation introducing guest star comedians and artists. Notably, B-Sides teamed up Blind Pig Studios, London, to create a pre-launch animated teaser which was shortlisted as a finalist for the 2023 AEAF Awards!

Backers can get their hands on five limited edition comic covers and exclusive collectibles including two intricately designed skateboard decks, art prints and posters by B-Sides lead artist Rich Ivens, and a unique B-Sides pendant, crafted by cult classic jewelry designer Kelly OnlyChild.

For fans of Giant Days with the flavor of Gorillaz, the B-Sides Volume 1 campaign ends Dec. 7. 

Crowdfunding Corner: Zip #2: A Grungy Superhuman Comic

Backer Beware: Crowdfunding projects are not guaranteed to be delivered and/or delivered when promised. We always recommend to do your research before backing

Following the first issue reaching 110% funding, the Kickstarter campaign for Zip #2: A Grungy Superhuman Comic has launched. The comic is written by Mike Scrase, with art by San Espina, and lettering by Ferran Delgado. Artists for variant covers are anticipated be announced throughout the campaign. Set in Bristol, it follows Zip, a superhuman whose flawed superpowers are an analogy for disability, especially neurodivergence.

The second issue explores a strange and dangerous quirk of Zip’s powers that she has struggled with since childhood: a release of high energy generated by her body’s speed, which makes her touch explosive in stressful situations.

But Zip’s control over her powers are challenged when she clashes with a kidnapper out to settle an old score. The stories about him say he’s so skilled in the martial arts that there is no attack he cannot evade and no technique he cannot counter. They call him: Mr Untouchable.

But are Zip and this deadly stranger more alike than they think? Zip #2: A Grungy Superhuman Comic has the answers!

Responding to feedback about the first campaign, Scrase has made an acknowledgement in the comic’s credits available to everyone who pledges to the campaign with a reward tier. He has also expanded the countries the print version of the comic will be available in to all European countries which Kickstarter supports delivery options for.

Backers who missed the first issue are able to pick it up in digital or digital and print format using one of the campaign’s bundle tiers.

There is also new reward options, including the chance to get a Zip sticker pack and poster with your pledge.

The campaign ends on Thursday, November 23 2023 3:00 PM EST.
