#CrowdfundingFridays: ‘Meanwhile… A Comic Shop Anthology,’ ‘Tales of Asunda #1, NIOBE & DURA #2 + More!,’ and ‘Stagnant Waters #1: A Matter of Fate’

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: Meanwhile… A Comic Shop Anthology

What it’s about: The squeak of the spinner rack. The flip-flip-flip of fingers going through back issue bins. Expensive vintage books suspended inside their clear prisons. Wednesday Warriors gathered at the monolithic wall of new releases. A child’s excited query of “Can we please get this?” A debate at the front counter about who’s stronger, who’s faster. Maybe there are T-shirts and toys and other collectibles; maybe this space is so filled by comics — in bins, boxes, stacks — that there aren’t three feet of room to spare for anything else. Maybe that wide-eyed new customer doesn’t buy anything today, but just wanders, remembering, for a few minutes, the joy of when they used to read those things. These aisles contain magic.

Welcome to Meanwhile… A Comic Shop Anthology. To celebrate this beloved medium and the stores that showcase it, we’ve assembled an 80-page anthology of short comics and pinups by a diverse group of creators telling the stories that reflect their unique voices and experiences as not only comics creators, but consumers. Reading this throwback to the old “80-Page Giants” of yesteryear might be akin to browsing an actual comic store — you’ll find superheroes, adventure, humor, horror, science fiction, manga, and some stories that defy easy categorization.

Project #2: Tales of Asunda #1, NIOBE & DURA #2 + More!

What it’s about
: The half-elf hero stars in five NEW fantasy tales by Stranger Comics + anniversary edition of The Untamed graphic novel hardcover! Born half–tribal elf, half-human, Niobe is direct heir to the thrones of two kingdoms. But Niobe is also half-angel and half-demon, for within her lies the spirit of the goddess and devil, and both will move Heaven and Hell to make their champion.

Project #3: Stagnant Waters #1: A Matter of Fate

What it’s about
: When Ian & Quinton become the center of a cosmic hunt they learn just how dangerous the world and the cosmos truly is. Stagnant Waters is a super-powered sci-fi epic that kicks off a world-building project that would make Tolkien proud and is full of tales that cover Asimovian swathes of time. This initial series covers the journey of two young men as they are thrust into the center of a cosmic hunt for a mysterious key – which it turns out they have. This leads to them being targeted by a strange and ultra violent alien race, sets them in the crosshairs of clandestine government organizations like, and even makes them enemies of a criminal empire – to mention an ancient group known as the Triumvirate through which they’ll learn the secret history of the Earth. The first arc is six (6) issues long, and is immediately followed by a second arc which is also 6 issues to complete the first act of the Cosmic Renaissance Saga.
