Marvel's "Jessica Jones" Will Go "All the Way Dark," Promise Rosenberg & Loeb
The small press publisher Yeti Press has launched a Kickstarter project asking contributors to help sustain the company’s growth over the next year. The company plans to release six comics and graphic novels over the next several months and is looking for early subscribers :
We have grown steadily over the last 2 years, but to take the next step towards where we want to be, we are asking for your help. A stellar lineup of books has been assembled, including brand new talent and Yeti Press favorites, that we’d like to release over the next year. Three of those books would be completed and shipped in the fall/winter months and another 3 would come to you in the spring/summertime. This Kickstarter effort will be a one time only deal, offering single issues, assorted goodies, and most importantly – a subscription service.
Fall/winter releases include: Bird Witch Collection by Kat Leyh, an all-ages fantasy; Pecos Collection by RJ Casey and Eric Roesner, a “cowboy comedy”; and Rose From the Dead by Andrea Bell, which is being described as “adorahorror.” The spring/summer releases include Poop, Boobs, Poo a collection of one-panel gags by Sam Sharpe; the surreal and off-beat Well Come by Erik Nebel, which seems to defy easy description; and The Summit by RJ Casey and Gabriel Bautista, a sci-fi story about a man whose dying wish is to reach the summit of Mount Everest.
For $50 you can subscribe to the fall/winter or spring/summer package. $100 gets you a full-year subscription. There are other incentives, including original art, prints and commissioned work. The company hopes to reach $10,000 in the next 33 days or so, but will release two more books if they hit the stretch goal of $12,000.
