K.T.W. – Updates Week

by distractingdelusions

This week’s K.T.W. is going to be slightly different. As mentioned previously I have been working two jobs this past week, which has left me with little time to look through the latest projects vying for your hard earned cash. Therefore, I’m going to use this space for quick updates on projects I have mentioned previously.

#1 – MOLLY DANGER by Jamal Igle

Molly Danger was the first project I wrote about for Kickstart The Week and I am very happy to announce that it finally reached it’s funding goal with just two days to go. Jamal Igle’s tireless campaign to raise awareness of his creation via any and every medium available, ranging from standard print interviews to his comprehensive tour of the podcast-iverse (it’s a word now, I’m sorry), has been equally inspiring and exhausting to watch. But the best part about watching this campaign has been seeing it pay off.

Congratulations to Jamal and I look forward to seeing Molly in action next year.

You can find my original piece about this excellent comic, here.

#2 – Leaving Megalopolis

Whilst not officially the subject of a K.T.W. article I have previously written about Gail Simone and Jim Calalfiore’s new project, Leaving Megalopolis.

Unsurprisingly, due to the creative team involved being comprised of the main forces behind the excellent Secret Six series, this project was funded within days of going live. It is still open for funding and a whole array of new stretch rewards have been added so, if you haven’t got around to checking it out yet, there’s no time like the present.

My original piece, with links to the project, as well as to the creator’ own sites, can be found, here.

#3 – The Cartoon Art of Mike Deodato, Jr – Volume 1

Next up is the wonderful news that Mike Deodato’s project, The Cartoon Art of Mike Deodato, Jr – Volume 1, has also been successful.

In my original article I compared the cartoon style and content of this project to that of the fantastic Calvin & Hobbes. The comparison remains apt as, since the project closed fully funded, I have found myself filled with child-like enthusiasm in anticipation of receiving my copy of this humorous collection.

My original K.T.W. article can be found, here.

#4 – Bittersweet Candy Bowl

With nineteen days to go, the fundraising for the second print volume of Bittersweet Candy Bowl has already been successful.

If you still haven’t taken a look at this, I recommend you start at the web-comic’s main site. A quick browse through the archives, combined with a look at the artwork of more recent strips, should give you all the information you require to make a decision as to whether this is to your tastes.

On a personal note, the official project update announcing the success of the project was made twice as sweet for me when I realised that the article mentioned, and linked to, at the bottom of the announcement:

is, my original Kickstart The Week write up!

Pretty awesome, huh?
