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: Cannibals on Mars

What it’s about: Cannibals on Mars is a 48 page, perfect-bound, one-shot that delivers blood-soaked space horror that comic fans can really sink their teeth into. Ever since the ancients fixed their gaze skyward, human beings have marveled at the planets stretched before them. Heretics, heroes, science, and sacrifice all advanced our understanding of the stars, until finally, in 2027, earthlings established the first functioning colony on another planet. The RH7 Colonies on Mars: a terraforming series of interconnected outposts inhabited by a bold set of international astronauts, scientists, engineers, and psychologists. Their mission was twofold: to develop a sustainable environment for eventual, large-scale migration and to prove that human beings–despite their differences, could work together to create a fledgling new society built on trust, camaraderie, and the common good.
Then all communication from earth was cut off.
The colonists continued their mission.
They thrived. They survived.
They lived, loved, and lost.
Five years passed.
And now here we are… CANNIBALS ON MARS

Project #2: New Rat City: The Complete Series

What it’s about
: A pest controller battles rats, roaches, pigeons, and more for the future of NYC in this 120-page, two-part comic series! It’s 2083, and there’s not much left of New York City after years of floods, pests, and infrastructure mismanagement: Just a small community in northern Manhattan and a few enclaves in the Bronx. Broadway is a sea of grass that ends at the 59th Street floodwall, and tourists arrive by ferry to take glass-bottom boat tours of downtown and the outer boroughs. The only people keeping the city habitable for its few remaining residents are the pest controllers, and humane laws mean they generally aren’t allowed to kill. Felicia Shepherd is a pest controller who has recently taken over the family business, after her mother disappeared and a rat-related accident took her dad out of commission. Felicia does the best she can for her clients, but her job becomes much harder when swarms of unnervingly organized pests start running rampant across the city! That’s when the mayor lifts the no-kill order…

Project #3: The Exorcism Engines: A Girl Genius Graphic Novel

What it’s about
: Adventure, romance, MAD SCIENCE! The next volume of the Hugo Award–winning graphic novel series! Girl Genius is an ongoing story following the adventures of Agatha Heterodyne, the last of a notorious family in which the spark of mad science runs strong. We call it a “Gaslamp Fantasy,” by which we mean that it takes place in an old-fashioned, Vernian world of airships, monsters, and wild inventions. Girl Genius is published as a webcomic and graphic novel series, and also as a series of prose novels. The series has won three Hugo Awards for Best Graphic Story! The Exorcism Engines is Book Seven of The Second Journey of Agatha Heterodyne, and the twentieth book in the overall series. If you’re new to the Girl Genius comics, The Second Journey is a great place to jump in!
