Saucer Country artist Ryan Kelly has been self-publishing the superhero series Funrama for awhile now, selling it at conventions and via the web when a new issue becomes available. “Funrama is an ongoing, but it’s a lot of work because I’m doing everything. I’m building the whole world from the ground up. But I have to put it away when other deadlines come up,” Kelly told Chris Arrant last month.
If you haven’t had a chance to check out the series, Kelly has launched a Funrama website, where you can view the entire first issue for free. And if you like that, he’s also put the second issue up on the site as a $2 PDf download. Go check’em out.
