The Fellowship is pleased to present our quarterly crowdfunding spotlight. There are hundreds of comics projects (and other stuff too) on Kickstarter (and other sites too), and we've gone through and picked out a few that we think look cool. And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

All movies for the upcoming secret project have been watched (by me, anyway) - details coming "Tre soon"

Comics - The Rocky & Bullwinkle Show (nostalgic fun), Mr. Miracle #1 (reminiscent of recent Moon Knight run)

You Can't Turn That Into A House (TV, FYI Network) - entertaining to see them solve problems

 

Check out our sponsor page! Head to the website and click on the banners for Things From Another World and Make Mine Indie! (Click through the TFAW banner on our site and we get a cut. And check out tons of great indie comics in the MMIndie catalog. And thank you!)
