ColdwaterFor over a year, the staff of Fanboy Comics has informed its readers about exciting Kickstarter campaigns for projects that are worthy of your hard-earned money.  As supporters of independent creators of all mediums, we love doing our part to spread the word about high quality projects and talented creators.  In fact, for the very first time on the FBC website, today's edition of "The Kickstarter Report" will focus on a Kickstarter campaign that has already surpassed its fundraising goal; however, the project in question is so good, that we could not resist the opportunity to push the campaign well over its stretch goal!

Author Justin Robinson, best known for the novels Undead on Arrival, Mr. Blank, The Dollmaker, and Nerve Zero, is at it again with his latest book, Coldheart.  The new urban fantasy novella is set in San Francisco, which has been ravaged by a blizzard, while its residents live in fear of a cannibalistic killer stalking the streets and a rash of abductions targeting people seemingly at random.  Throughout this chaos, only one man has the ability to put together the pieces of the mysteries affecting the people of the city.  The catch?  The man must also fight the demons of his own mental illness, unsure if the clues that he is finding are real or figments of his imagination.
