Graphic Horror: Born Dark Comic Kickstarter

Born Dark Issue: 0 Kickstarter

We’re just in the beginning of this Graphic Novel Horror Blogathon, but it’s not just about horror movies that are or should be graphic novels, it’s also about graphic novels that could become movies. And there’s a brand new one looking for funding for their issue #0 which will propel them into a full fledged series. It’s doing quite well at the moment, but still has a ways to go. It’s called a “dark fantasy” but it also delves into some horror elements. And I’m not just trying to convince others to back this project, I’m excited enough about it that I have backed it myself. And to help tell you more about this comic, I asked a few questions of the writer, Lela Gwenn. Click here to visit the Kickstarter page, or click any of the images to go there as well.

Superhero Shorts: City of Titans

Ok, it’s not entirely a traditional Superhero Shorts, there is a YouTube clip involved, but this is really about an upcoming independent game that was inspired by one of my favorite games of all time, City of Heroes. If you haven’t played City of Heroes, you missed out because it ran for many years before being shut down about a year ago now. After the shutdown announcement, there was an almost immediate push by a group of players to create a new game inspired by the old one we loved so much. Eventually that group of players split into two groups, and only a few days ago one of them, Missing Worlds Media, have gotten to the point where they were able to launch a Kickstarter campaign to secure funds to finish the game, and they were also able to take a little time out of their busy schedule to answer a few of my questions about the project. You can visit and contribute to the Kickstarter campaign right here which is running until November 4th, 2013, and you can also view the kickstarter video below.

Superhero Shorts: Three to look out for

Welcome to an atypical edition of Superhero Shorts, once again I was shorthanded on getting a new interview, so instead I thought of a better idea. Instead of talking about a fan-film that’s already been finished, I thought I’d take a quick look at three projects I found on Kickstarter that are trying to get enough funding to be made. I didn’t get a chance to talk to any of the project founders as this was a fairly last-minute idea, but they all look pretty interesting and I think they’re worth it. So if you’re looking to help bring new superhero fan-films to light, then look no further.
