#CrowdfundingFridays: ‘Depths,’ ‘StoneCop,’ and ‘Oyasumi, A Cat’s Purrpose’

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: Depths

What it’s about: Have you ever felt so low you weren’t sure you could keep going? Like the world was collapsing around you and just surviving until tomorrow was a monumental task? Have you ever felt like you were drowning?

Depths: Book One is a 112-page graphic novel about grief, depression, and the strength it takes to carry on. It’s a story about overcoming impossible odds when even taking a single step seems overwhelming. It’s the story that made us want to make comics.

Emil Parker is a brilliant engineer, a 1930s Oxford Scholar, and his latest creation is going to change the way we explore the ocean. A perpetual diving suit capable of sustaining someone underwater indefinitely, it’s nothing short of a miracle of modern technology. Emil pilots the suit in its first outing to the public and promises to stay underwater for a full day–but during the expedition, something grabs a hold of Emil and drags him to the bottom of the Ocean.

Project #2: StoneCop

What it’s about
: In the city of Brighton Ridge, Colorado, rock trolls have rolled down from the mountains to terrorise the population. They tear up streets, crush vehicles, and rip open homes.

The people live in fear, and only one thing can save them: To defeat the masonic menace, we need StoneCop! Once a rock troll himself, he’s been chiselled down and reprogrammed to become the city’s most statuesque law enforcer. And now he faces his greatest test yet – transporting an imprisoned troll across the city to become the first inmate in Stonemax, their new maximum-security underground prison. But the mountain monsters are determined to intercept the transfer and punish our hero for betraying them. And if StoneCop survives this gravelly gauntlet, what dark secrets await him in the mountains?

StoneCop is an action-packed, new 32-page one-shot from writer Nick Bryan (FairyFare, Death of a Necromancer), artist Phil Appley (Requiem) and letterer DC Hopkins (Star Trek, Nocterra) about a city under siege, a series of rock-crushing battles, and one artificial being trying to fulfill his purpose.

Project #3: Oyasumi, A Cat’s Purrpose

What it’s about
: Most people with cats will know about the craziness cats get up to in the middle of the night. What if there was a reason, for those nighttime shenanigans. One filled with hidden horrors, ancient pacts, and heroic cats! With A Cat’s Purrpose, Kimmicomics and Geoscrolls want to give you an amazing adventure focusing on cats and just how far they will go to protect us. So, if you want to see what your cat might be up too, be sure to back this comic book.
