amazingly skilled artwork, physically believable but enormously inventive as well; this looks like a lot of fun

(fully funded) finishes Friday, February 26 2021 4:00 AM GMT

there’s a few story pages on the campaign and they look very intruiging, slightly odd, but not outright weird

Treading on Thorns by Aimee Sullivan (@stardustpinkart)

(still funding) finishes Monday, March 1 2021 12:28 PM GMT

I like the look of the bits of finished artwork and the very unambitious tone of the kickstarter, it just sounds like someone looking to be able to do something they love and needing helpto achieve that

Flintlock Book Five by Steve Tanner (@stevetanneruk) and others from Time Bomb Comics (@TimeBombComics)

(fully funded) finishes Mon, March 1 2021 10:00 PM GMT

Floodland by Jonathan McBurnie (@king_of_nails) from Argle Bargle Books
