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: Secret Rites

What it’s about
: Secret Rites is a one-shot comic re-telling a Greek tragedy exploring a mysterious cult ritual that celebrates the story of Demeter and the search for her daughter Persephone. What makes it so mysterious? You may only attend once in a lifetime. No-one knows exactly what goes on during the ritual but all are welcome to devote themselves to the Gods and celebrate a story of sacrifice. Demeter, the goddess of the harvest, acts as mother to the mortals as well as her own children. When Demeter’s daughter Persephone is taken from her, Demeter’s anguish starves the earth as she seeks to get Persephone back. But to what end?

The coolest backer reward: The Deity tier gives you the physical book of Secret Rites, as well as a beautiful set of A4 prints which include pin-up illustrations by Kay Baird, Katie Fleming, and Katherine Hemmings and the unlettered cover.

Project #2: Love at First Bite

What it’s about
: Love at First Bite is a darkly comedic and uninhibited parody of modern dating with a vampire twist. Written by Gabe Cheng and illustrated by Elisa Meneghel entirely during the COVID19 lockdown, this nine page one-shot is packed with humor, heart, and an army of pint-sized vampire imps.

Project #3: Darkboy & Adler #2: A queer horror comedy

What it’s about
: A story about a boy who goes too far in the search of love. Love and hate, mutants and magic, filthy pigs and rocket-launcher-toting voodoo dolls all combine to make Darkboy & Adler #2 a sexy, explosive, wild ride that you won’t want to miss out on.

The coolest backer reward
: Mutant Ruler backer tier has lots of cool stuff, including a large poster designed by Daniel Earey featuring every character from both issues of the comic. It’s gonna look super cool.
