Supernatural Noir Comic Raising Funds on Kickstarter

Writer K. Barrett has already raised nearly $8,000 on Kickstarter for her supernatural graphic novel, The Bargain. With this funding, she will be able to hire an artist to finish creating the illustrations for this 1950′s noir comic. We’ve embedded a video about the project above–what do you think?

Here’s more about the project’s storyline: “Twenty years ago Jackson signed his soul away to pay his mother’s gambling debt. Now his bill is coming due on New Year’s Eve. Peddling potions and mojos as a traveling salesman most of his life, Jackson understands a thing or two about magic. But salvation always eludes him. Louisiana is his last hope.”

Welcome to our Kickstarter Publishing Project of the Week, a feature exploring how authors and publishers are using the fundraising site to raise money for book projects. If you want to start your own project, check out How To Use Kickstarter to Fund Your Publishing Project.
