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: The Problem with Parallels

What it’s about: Two parallel universe traveling brothers must resolve their differences while on the run from interdimensional assassins. The Problem with Parallels is a science fiction comedy about running away. Written by Gabe Cheng with art by Elisa Meneghel, this short story one-shot is for anyone that’s ever wanted to avoid their problems by escaping to another dimension. And the best part is … all 13 pages of The Problem with Parallels are completely finished! Which means the comic is ready to print as soon as the campaign ends!

Project #2: House of the Queerbodies: Part 1

What it’s about
: Ellen travels to a world where fairy tales and nursery rhymes are real to find the story her grandmother forgot. Katharine Pyle wrote and illustrated As the Goose Flies in 1901, combining the mythologies of Mother Goose and Charles Perrault with her own spin. The Queerbodies are beautiful, magical people who live in this world of myth. They take forgotten stories and reimagine them into new and beautiful works of art. Ellen and the Gander travel the countryside, helping those they encounter. Their adventures are intermixed with the characters telling familiar stories from their own point of view. Katharine Pyle likely intended “queerbodies” to only refer to the strange, otherworldly creators of stories, art, and dreams. However, the creator was inspired to reimagine the story as one that warmly makes room for queer representation and body positivity. House of the Queerbodies is about family and treats its queer, disabled, and diverse characters as natural and welcome elements of a fantasy adventure.
