Thank you all for supporting Brandt Peters’ Sketchbook: Muse No. 1 Kickstarter


Hello everyone!

For my first Kickstarter, this project has really been an amazing experience. I had no idea it would take the course it did and would be so successful. I seriously can not thank everyone enough.!I am forever humbled by this process and your generosity. You not only have helped me produce an even better MUSE sketchbook than I could imagine at first, but you have helped pave the road for the whole series. There is so much excitement swirling around this project from fans and collectors to future MUSE artists.

The MUSE journey continues…

I am now focused on the layout and design and should be sending the sketchbook files to the printer in the coming weeks. Incentive production has begun… In fact, for those that have pledged to receive custom Skelve resin figures in a color of their choice – I will be contacting you shortly for your color selection.

I will be posting more regularly on updates (now that the pledge process has concluded) as I am finishing and wrapping up the design. I will be posting images of the MUSE 1 sketchbook as it wraps. I will also be snapping photos of finished incentive production for you!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

More news soon!

All the best,

Jimmy Palmiotti’s New SEX and VIOLENCE Graphic Novel on Kickstarter!

  • by

Following the immense success of his Queen Crab and Retrovirus projects, comic giant Jimmy Palmiotti returns with another exciting Kickstarter series called Sex and Violence. The 64-page graphic novel is about crime, lust and redemption as it follows two distinct, yet similarly-themed stories written by Palmiotti and Justin Gray, and illustrated by Jimmy Broxton and Juan SantaCruz. As the title of the book suggests, it is intended for an adult audience.

Here’s the scoop, straight from Jimmy:

The first story, PORNLAND, OREGON, is written by Justin Gray [ All-Star Western, Retrovirus, Creator-Owned heroes] and drawn by Jimmy Broxton [The Unwritten, The Engine] .  When his runaway granddaughter is murdered, Rick embarks on a bloody trail of revenge through Portland’s internet porn community only to discover he may have inadvertently had a role in her death.

The other story, GIRL IN A STORM, is written by Jimmy Palmiotti [ Painkiller Jane, Queen Crab, Jonah Hex] and illustrated by Juan SantaCruz [ The Resistance, Fantastic Four, The Hulk] and is a story about a NYC female police officer that becomes fascinated with a lesbian couple that has moved across the courtyard from her apartment. What started out as a curiosity out of boredom has become a full-fledged obsession that starts her questioning her own life.

Backers who pledge $25 or more will receive the book with an exclusive, Amanda Conner cover variant, signed by Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray. Your name will also be printed in the book. Other awards are also up for grabs, depending on the amount you can contribute.

For those who are unfamiliar with Jimmy’s work, this is a great opportunity to get acquainted before his upcoming ART OF NARRATIVE comic art exhibition this January at Stranger Factory! He will also be teaching a workshop on character creation and how to sell a project, so do our pal Jimmy a solid by backing Sex and Violence Vol. 1. Fundraising closes Dec. 13; click here for the trailer + more info!


Help Fund a Documentary on Chet Zar

  • by

A kickstarter campaign by Mike Correll is very close to being fulfilled to make a documentary on artist Chet Zar. “I like to paint monsters“, will dive into the work, thought processes, development, and understanding of the man known as Chet Zar. Oct. 12, is the cutoff date for funding, and this project is ever so close to being finished. Click the link here to watch a video for better insight into what this fabulous kickstarter will bring. We love documentaries, and not since Heather Donahue got lost in the woods with her’s, have we been more stoked for one. This funding has to happen, and who knows, you might even see a familiar Albuquerque gallery in the film.
