#CrowdfundingFridays: ‘Silver Volume 3 / Rosalynd,’ ‘Rum Row,’ and ‘Murder Most Mundane’

Here at Fanbase Press, we strive to provide an outlet for up-and-coming creators to promote and showcase their incredible works. With thousands of creators utilizing crowdfunding platforms like Kickstarter and Indiegogo to make those works a reality, we will highlight these talented creators and their noteworthy campaigns through #CrowfundingFridays! We hope that you will join us in giving these projects a moment of your time (and possibly your support)!

Project #1: Silver Volume 3 / Rosalynd
What it's about: Silver is an expansion of Bram Stoker’s original universe, and it begins 40 years after the events of the novel, into the noir/pulp era of the 1930s. There, you meet James Finnigan, who is the most notorious conman/gentleman-thief of his day, as he teams up with Rosalynd “Sledge” Van Helsing (grand daughter of the original Van Helsing, and altogether the last of the Van Helsings), to steal a mystical treasure hidden in Dracula’s castle. Finn, of course, brings his known associates—a fun assortment of conmen and grifters of all kinds—as well as with the kind of amoral attitude that puts him immediately at odds with Sledge. Lastly, the team enlists Tao Leu (or more accurately, he enlists himself), who is a 10-year-old boy with the gift of second sight and who might be the biggest scoundrel of them all. So, I like to think of it as “Ocean’s 11 in Dracula’s castle” and as a big fun pulp adventure with lots of very genuine character moments.

As an extension of the campaign, creator Stephan Franck has now added a NEW PROJECT to the campaign!  Rosalynd is a one-shot 244-page hard cover which dives deeper into the Silver Universe and explores the mysterious past of one of Silver’s most beloved characters: Rosalynd “Sledge” Van Helsing. Secrets about her family will be revealed, as well as Rosalynd’s first-person account of the events that put her on the road to becoming the acerbic vampire-hunter from Silver that we know and love. Whether you are already fan of Silver, or discovering Rosalynd as a brand new character, you will enjoy this story that is both earnestly moving, and Pulp to the max!

Project #2: Rum Row
What it's about: Rum runners and police battle it out in dirigible speakeasies floating above New York, in this prohibition themed aerial crime adventure.

Project #3
: Murder Most Mundane
What it's about: A murderous and brutal horror set against the backdrop of a tranquil, idyllic village. A village where the type of murders are inventive and the murder rate is somewhat high.
The coolest backer reward: Design your own murder to be featured in the both the color and black-and-white versions of the book - and then own the original artwork from that page.
