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 Last Spartan: Red Tape

What it’s about: Frank Kane, the last known survivor of The Last Spartans MC, walks a perilous path guided by ancient Spartan maxims, but his journey takes an otherworldly turn as visions and omens from the gods beckon him to break his parole and risk his freedom to rescue a kidnapped child from the clutches of Atlanta’s human trafficking underworld. 

When determined decoy agent Amanda Harper crosses his path, fed up with government bureaucracy and on a mission to “save them all,” they both find an unlikely ally in a monumental showdown against an international cartel. 

Created by renowned actor Tyler Mane (X-MEN, TROY, Rob Zombie’s HALLOWEEN), former EIC of Top Cow Productions and current Managing Editor for Darby Pop Publishing Renae Geerlings (WITCHBLADE, FATHOM, BRUCE LEE: THE DRAGON RISES), and Eisner-nominated writer Christopher Priest (BLACK PANTHER, VAMPIRELLA).

Project #2: Bixby Grant: Fangs & Brimstone #1

What it’s about
: Written by Patrick Coyle, with main story art by Gonzalo Martínez, colors by Arthur Hesli, and backup story art by Gonzalo Ruggieri, the 30-page first issue of Fangs & Brimstone features everyone’s favorite mummy detective as he takes a routine snoop job in an attempt to forget the anniversary of something traumatic in his past. But Diego, the rockabilly vampire, inserts himself in Bix’s activities and things get hairy as they encounter a poltergeist and a ritual killing! It’s Hellboy meets The Spirit, with the tone of Batman: The Animated Series.
