MOLLY DANGER, a Kickstarter comics project by Jamal Igle

Jamal Igle writes that,

I find myself disturbed by the tone some things are taking in the industry. Darkness where darkness didn’t dwell, bitterness for the sake of “relevance”. it seems that in certain corners, there’s no room for magic, and light. It bothers me more than I can say. This not to say that superhero stories can’t be serious, or adult. However you can achieve those things without making them dire, and unlikeable. I need to be the one to make the changes I want to see.

 I can only say “I" because my tastes only end at the tip of my nose. There is room for fun, there is room for magic, there is room for genuine good in comics.I need to be the agent of change now. I’ve been moving towards it, now I need to step up that effort."

To that end, he has written a comic about a ten year old girl superhero called MOLLY DANGER.

Click through to read all about his project, check out the art and rewards and see if you can contribute to bringing back Jamal Igle’s sense of magic and “genuine good in comics”.

My buddy Dana Moreshead has written a comic about…BACON, a former NY cop who is
 ”Targeted for elimination by a mysterious madman and a radical vegetarian group, Bacon must call upon his past experience as a New York City beat cop to survive. Victory, however, will only come from Bacon’s ability to fully embrace the sense of calm and selflessness that has eluded him for so long”
Dana’s plan is that whoever pledges gets a vote (one for each dollar pledged) towards the eventual artist—Scott Koblish, Phil Winslade or me.

Yayyy!! My buddy, Phil Winslade!! (Ty was jealous—he’d been told waaaaaay back when to design Bacon as just a walking strip of bacon…then the other two artists drew him much later. When they both realised that he would have a history as a cop and other stuff, they put him in clothes. I’m trying to keep Ty from re-drawing Bacon and resubmitting a design!)

Kickstarter Project o’ the Week

Little Heart: A Comic Anthology for Marriage Equality

Little Heart is a comic anthology created to show support for marriage equality, produced in partnership with 2D Cloud & [MN]Love and YOU. The comics included in the volume cover a variety of material, from auto-bio, science fiction, intimate vignettes, romantic incidentals; work created to show that love strikes all walks of life.

This project was spawned by the very urgent need to fight the 2012 referendum that seeks to instill discrimination and hate in the Minnesota state constitution. Since Little Heart’s inception, the project has grown. The reason for the growth is that the issue itself is bigger than Minnesota. Which is why we have enlisted artists across the US, Canada, and a small sampling of international artists.

With this book, our desire is to help get people talking about marriage equality. Little Heart was not created with the idea to shove any ideology down your throat. Instead, it was created to illustrate that relationships and love should be left to individuals to discover on their own. Our hope is that, this is exactly what this book will allow us to show.

Should we raise enough funds for this project to be a success, a portion of the proceeds from sales of the comic will go towards the non-profit [MN]Love — allowing them to keep fighting for marriage equality, tolerance, and love.

They’ve got four days left to raise $2,340!  Why not help and give what you can?

Lady creators involved include: Tuesday Bassen, Emma Reynolds, Ellen Redshaw, Anna Bongiovanni, Hannah Blumenreich, Megan Tulius, Hedwig Vinson + Rachel Kowarski, Milkyboots, Tammy Ray, Sally Madden, Emily Carroll + Kate Craig, MariNaomi, and Meghan Hogan
