CrowdfundingFridays: ‘The Iron Barge: Book One,’ ‘The George Bess Classic Horror Collection,’ and ‘Catgirls, Dungeons and Zombies!’

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 Iron Barge: Book One

What it’s about: A duty-bound otter and an outlaw lemur must learn to trust each other as they flee a vengeful band of pirates in a post-apocalyptic Las Vegas ruled by animals. The Iron Barge is a talking-animal adventure story in the tradition of Mouse Guard, Watership Down, and The Jungle Book. Loaded with high-stakes action, a little bit of humor, and unique world building, it’ll be a book appropriate for upper-middle grade and YA readers, or anyone seeking a new twist on dystopian fiction.

Project #2: The George Bess Classic Horror Collection

What it’s about
: Magnetic Press recently announced its campaign for The George Bess Classic Horror Collection of original graphic novels, featuring the lush and unparalleled illustration of Georges Bess, known internationally for his extensive body of work with notorious writer and director Alejandro Jodorowsky. The collection will include Victor Hugo’s THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME, Bram Stoker’s DRACULA, and Mary Shelley’s FRANKENSTEIN.

Each 9”x12” hardcover will feature deluxe foil-stamped design elements on the cover, along with Magnetic Press’ signature curved corners. Printed on uncoated woodfree paper, Bess’s intricately detailed line art is reproduced at a stunning archival level of quality.
