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: Treasures, Thoughts and Trinkets

What it’s about: Can stories heal your soul? By the 2022 Eisner Awards nominee Ileana Surducan, Treasures, Thoughts and Trinkets is a collection of 24 silent comics that bring a world of colour for your soul, a playful puzzle for your mind and a fresh perspective on everyday life. We would like to print Treasures, Thoughts and Trinkets as a beautifully full-colour hardcover book that will become the second addition to our utopian comics collection.

Project #2: Pixie and Brutus: Gnome Sweet Gnome

What it’s about
: A 53-page full-length adventure with Pixie, Brutus, and the rest of the Pet Foolery gang! Hi, my name is Ben, better known as Pet Foolery on Instagram. It was about four years ago while working on my dad’s construction crew (and drawing comics in my free time) when I had the idea to make a cute little comic about a tiny innocent kitten meeting a big scary ex-military dog. I never planned on them becoming recurring characters, but Instagram liked them so much I just had to make more comics showcasing the misadventures of these unlikely pals.

Project #3: The Art of Stan Yak

What it’s about
: An incredible art book showcasing Stan Yak’s unparalleled works! Illustration, comics, concepts, and more! Stan Yak has been a professional traditional AND digital artist for nine years. With unbelievable official work for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Last Ronin, Stray Dogs, Monstrous: Witch Hunt, Broken Gargoyles, Fisticuffs, Zombies: We’re Human Too, The Surgeon, and Elsewhere, Volume 1, as well as the smash-hit Rayna: The Bastard Queen…this man just will not stop producing AMAZING art! He works his butt off and enjoys a small amount of free time with his wife, kid, and two ridiculous cats! The Art of Stan Yak is a compilation of stunning commissions, large and small, incredibly detailed covers for indie and mainstream comics, and a whole bunch of ZOMBIES and BATMAN.
