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: Danger Arcade

What it’s about
: Danger Arcade is the latest anthology by the Sketchy Bug Group based out of The Comic Bug in Manhattan Beach, California. The Sketchy Bug group is the West Coast’s largest comic book creator collective, comprised of comic fans, cosplayers and creators alike. This new collection of stories, fraught with peril and mayhem, gathers creators from independent, underground, and big-publisher backgrounds. The book consists of 69 pages of stories by 21 creators- plus additional pinups.

Ten tales of danger and adventure set the stage for the Sketchy Bug Group’s first foray into Kickstarter funding with Danger Arcade, a comics anthology. However, the group is no stranger to the platform, with members like co-founder Don Walker (creator/writer/artist of Agent Wild and Reaper Corps, Vampirella and Lady Death sketch card artist), Francis Joe Burns (writer, Danica Shade, Harpies Origin: Anya), Don Nguyen (creator/writer/artist of Pablo the Gorilla, Marvel Anime sketch card artist) and brothers Alex and Luis Bermudez (writers/artists fromiMonsters and Other Scary $#!% from Wannabe Press) previously contributing to or funding successful comic book projects on Kickstarter. The aforementioned creators join veterans like Brandon Easton (writer, Transformers: The War for Cybertron, Marvel Action Spider-Man, Judge Dredd: False Witness) and Ed Dukeshire (letterer, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Hulk) as well as independent voices like Jose Cardenas (creator/writer/artist of Universe Protectors), Juan Ponce (writer, World’s Strongest), Mike Ahn (artist, Out of Order) and Jeff Peters (creator/writer/artist, US: Museum Girl, Write a Graphic Novel in 5 Simple Steps) in bringing the anthology to light. Mike Penn of Heavy Metal magazine serves up a beautifully painted cover!

Those that aren’t safe? That’s where Sal comes in; Sal’s job as the Children’s Saviour Santa is to fly around the globe every Christmas eve saving children who need something more for Christmas than a present… safety.
