#CrowdfundingFridays: ‘Kardiakìa,’ ‘The Madmania Shindig Activity Book,’ and ‘Betamax’

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: Kardiakìa

What it’s about: Kardiakìa is a noun of Greek origins which means a “pained heart,” a pain that makes you feel out of breath, anxious, restless. This title brings together the themes of these stories, stories of love, identities, and bodies forced to stay in the shadow, away from the judging and intruding eyes of society. But both in “Magnalia” and in “Talìa,” our main characters bravely take back their right to live under the sun, despite a world that keeps trying to push them back into the darkness. A villa overlooking the sea, five souls united by love, the Nizza of the nouvelle vague. Unrequested attention. And more: a pathological inquisiveness that feeds itself until it explodes.

Project #2: The Madmania Shindig Activity Book

: This color activity book features stickers, word activities, coloring, and a 3D gallery!

The coolest backer reward:  The activity book itself! It’s 32 pages and a handy 6″ x 9″ format.

Project #3: Betamax

What it’s about
: A retro-manga cyberpunk anthology set in Neo Denver in 2082. BETAMAX follows the intertwined stories of several unique residents of Neo Denver: Marianne, an ex-cybernetics technician who is taking on whatever gig she can to gather enough money to get her cyborg boyfriend out of a life-preserving stasis; junker/mechanic, Jessica T. D., her encounter in the Aurora badlands with Lord Kilkrik’s wasteland biker gang; Colfax Jones, a high-capacity combat cyborg staring down his own impending expiration date; and more. BETAMAX features hand-drawn black-and-white art with digital halftones, giving the work a retro-manga aesthetic.
