If you want to get into reading independent comics, Kickstarter is a great place to jump in. However, in recent years the platform has become not just for up-and-coming creators looking to get their foot in the door, but established creators looking to fund their passion project. Also, publishers are getting in on the action, with the likes of PaperFilms and Top Cow launching campaigns to gauge interest in a new title. Action Lab Entertainment is another publisher looking to use Kickstarter to justify the launch of a project, only this time it’s the continuation of their Cash & Carrie series. Check out the complete press release below for details.
The Kickstarter for the all-readers graphic novel
CASH & CARRIE – BOOK TWO: SUMMER SLEUTHS is live!
The all-readers graphic novel CASH & CARRIE returns! The first book was published by Action Lab Entertainment back in 2016. In this second book, the kids go on a trip to Summer Camp Sobol. Because nothing bad could ever happen at a cabin in the words! Except when campers go missing, Bigfoot might actually exist, and the ingredients in the coleslaw are… questionable. Middle school detective duo Cash & Carrie must survive with no WiFi and poor mosquito repellent in order to solve these mysteries.
CASH & CARRIE – BOOK TWO contains 96 pages of all-new stories and content featuring up-and-coming talents. Creator/writer Shawn Pryor comments, “There’s a need for fun, inclusive, all-readers graphic novels and CASH & CARRIE fill it. It’s because of creating CASH & CARRIE in 2015 that I didn’t quit making comics when I was at the lowest point of my creative career. Now, I’m more determined than ever, and I want to see CASH & CARRIE in the hands of every kid and reader in the world. Thank you again for supporting CASH & CARRIE.”
The creators are aiming to reach $8,000 by November 27, 2018 at 11:59 PM EST. They have stretch goals that go to $12,000; if they reach $12,000, they’ll add more pages to the OGN as well.
