#CrowdfundingFridays: ‘Thornclaw Manor’ and ‘Cosmos #5’

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: Thornclaw Manor

What it’s about
: A blend of horror, folklore, and alluring fantasy that is sure to thrill the both the innocent and the morbidly curious! Following the success of his 2019 launch of The Thornclaw Manor Illustrated Poker Deck, award-winning illustrator Steve Ellis (The Only Living Boy, High Moon) invites you to help expand the Thornclaw Manor universe with The Thornclaw Manor Illustrated Poker Deck and Art Book! The Thornclaw family is an ancient clan of monsters and creatures from myths and legend that live in a sprawling mansion that lies somewhere between our world and the world of myths and legends. The family members themselves are Fairies, Demons, Cryptids, Lovecraftian Creatures who live a rather civilized existence in their giant interdimensional manor. Think of it as Downton Abbey, but with a monstrous spin. They have come home to the Manor, because the Dowager, the ancient and horrible matriarch of the family, claims to be dying, and the family members hope to be named the sole beneficiary of her fortune and her Elder-Godlike power.

The coolest backer reward
: Backers of the Kickstarter can receive incentive items such as lavish, fully-illustrated playing cards featuring the Thornclaw family, as well as lovely prints, original art, sketches, world material, behind-the-scenes process pictures, and even a book of full page art!

Project #2: Cosmos #5

What it’s about
: COSMOS is a twelve issue maxi-series that brings together the cosmic characters from the Advent Universe and beyond in a mystery. It also doubles as the biggest indie Comics crossover ever. The campaign also offers THREE brand new tie-ins: LEGEND & THE VANGUARD, PANTHEON ONE-SHOT and THE UNIVERSALS ONE-SHOT.

The coolest backer reward
: The coolest backer reward is the “Be A Hero” reward which not only adds YOUR CHARACTER into the story of COSMOS #5 in a speaking role but puts the character on a Variant Cover drawn by superstar artist Andy Smith (of which you will receive two copies of). Andy has worked for Marvel, DC, Image and more, having drawn all of the major characters from them including Superman, Spider-Man, Batman, Captain America, Thanos, X-Men, and more. This reward also comes with the COSMOS Box Set that contains the entire series of COSMOS, all of the covers from this campaign, and other cool items.
