More often than not, Kickstarter campaigns for independent comic books take time to build steam before reaching their crowdfunding goal. While some campaigns seem to capture magic in a bottle, reaching their fundraising goal (and beyond!) in a matter of mere days, this occurrence remains a rarity. For this reason, the Fanboy Comics staff was intrigued and impressed by the upcoming comic book series Flesh of White, published by indie publisher Inverse Press. With just over a week remaining in their Kickstarter campaign, the creators behind Flesh of White have already surpassed their goal, but they need your help to reach their exciting, new stretch goals!

While comic book fans will have the chance to meet the Marvel Comics writer and snag a signed copy of Hawkeye #7, House of Secrets will also have an amazing food truck on hand to serve hungry patrons with the most delicious variety of grilled cheese sandwiches (and tater tots!) that you can imagine! In addition, the Red Cross will be in attendance accepting donations to benefit the victims of Hurricane Sandy.
