CrowdfundingFridays: ‘Aster of Pan: The Source’ and ‘Death of Comics Bookcase, Vol. 1’

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: Aster of Pan: The Source

What it’s about: Renowned graphic novel and art book publisher Magnetic Press is proud to announce the campaign for Aster of Pan: The Source by author and illustrator Merwan (False Guard) with an exclusive variant cover painted by fan-favorite artist Peach Momoko (X-Men)!

This long-awaited sequel to the award-winning and official selection of the 2020 Angouleme Comics Festival, Aster of Pan, resonates with deep, layered characters in dynamic, often action-packed situations. Merwan’s anime-inspired visual style mixes the dynamics of classic mangaka with a water-colored palette that is uniquely his own, varied by the line weight of Tim Sale.

The year is 2068. The place, Fontainebleau forest, ancient home of some of France’s mightiest monarchs on the outskirts of what was once Paris. The post-apocalyptic society of Pan survives by growing rice and scavenging among the ruins of a destroyed civilization. Their precarious existence comes under threat when the powerful, technologically advanced Federation of Fortuna forces them into a dangerous choice—submit to Fortuna’s rule, or try to best them in a barbaric, ritualized game known as Celestial Mechanics. Pan’s only hope? A hot-headed outcast they’d rejected for being “un-Pan”: a girl named Aster.

Project #2: Death of Comics Bookcase, Vol. 1

What it’s about
:  In 2018, a comics blog appeared…Comics Bookcase. And everyone loved it. But what did we truly know about THE Comics Bookcase? Precious little. 

Now, Comics Bookcase is being unmasked…moments before its death. As it departs, however, it has stories, comics stories, 48 pages of them, all written by Comics Bookcase‘s former editor, Zack Quaintance. So, get ready to watch the beloved comics blog die…publicly…for your entertainment!
