My wonderful friend Mario is back at it once again with Comare Issue One: The Other Woman on Kickstarter! While Mario is on writing duties, co-createor Ashley St. Lawrence is the illustrator, color artist is Lesley Atlansky, Zakk Saam is on lettering duty, and covers will be illustrated by Victor Santos with variants by Jim Towe.
Of course you probably want to know more about the story. Comare is a story about lust, betrayal, desperation, and obsession set against the backdrop of old Hollywood. Sounds pretty intriguing right? I personally can’t wait to get my hands on a copy, but that will only happen with the help of backers! Their goal right now is $4,500 and at the time of this post they’ve raised $2,147 with just 23 days to go. It sounds like a lot to make up, but I know they can do it. This book has a lot of talented people involved and it would be a shame for this beautiful book and story to be delayed. The nice thing that Mario does for his KS campaigns is feature a lot of different backing levels! You don’t need to have a lot of money to show your support. He has backing options as low as $2. I went with the $15 option which includes:
VARIANT – This tier includes a physical copy of the first issue containing the variant cover signed by the creators as well as your name in the “Thank You” section, and a prop matchbox featuring the logo of a central location from the story.
Oh, did I fail to mention that some of the levels offer awesome props like a matchbox or 7″ vinyl record? Well they do! Of course if that doesn’t sell you on the idea of backing this KS, maybe some of the artwork will.
Beautiful, right? I can’t wait to see more. Hopefully I’ve helped sell you on the idea of supporting this comic. If I have, be sure to head over to Kickstarter and pick your level! If you can’t afford to back, you can still help by spreading the word!
