It’s been a good week for quality Kickstarters! I already rambled about supporting Amy Reeder and Brandon Montclare’s creator-owned independent comic Halloween Eve. I found another one that looks really interesting that I’ve backed. This one is being produced by an art collective called 44FLOOD. It’s a multimedia art project with an art book, music, and so on, called TOME, based around the theme of vampirism:
Considering that I’ve written both a novel and stories starring a vampire, I’m sure it’s no surprise that vampirism-themed art is right up my alley. It’s also fairly comic-related, with notable creators such as Andy Belanger (Kill Shakespeare), Becky Cloonan (Conan), Ben Templesmith and Steve Niles (30 Days of Night), Bill Sienkiewicz (Elektra: Assassin & everything else), Jil Thompson (Sandman & everything else) and lots of fine artists, commercial artists, and so on. Really, the art on the Kickstart page looked very darkly beautiful, and it sounds like the creators are coming at it from a very thoughtful place. So I threw down for it, and look forward to the book.
