Kevin Featured Comics • Sep 10, 2021


It's been a bit since we did a crowdfunding roundup, so we thought it was a good time to catch up with projects currently active, as well as those that are coming soon. This feature is going to be a little different than our typical list of comics -- this is all about getting you the info on the crowdfunding projects. Let's get started!



Glamorella's Daughter Issue #3

Literati Press Comics & Novels is back with a new Kickstarter project for issue #3. The project just went live two days ago, and as of publication, they are already making great strides in reaching the funding goal at $876 out of $1500. Glamorella's Daughter issues 1 and 2 were both official Kickstarter "Projects We Love", so we definitely recommend checking out this new entry into the series!

There are plenty of backer goodies available, and you can even read Glamorella's Daughter here on GlobalComix. Catch up on the first two issues, and then head over to Kickstarter to support Glamorella's Daughter issue #3.



Robo #1-3: A Sardonic Cyberpunk/Superhero Series

Moosecat Comics and Jesse Keppler are looking to continue the Robo series with their upcoming project in support of issues 1-3. Here's a brief description of the series from the Moosecat team:

In a future where society has broken down and reformed itself, corporations have replaced governments, robots have replaced human labor and even the human mind is commoditized. NeuChicago is home to Robo, Public Outreach and Defense Liaison of Sunburst Inc, a defense and weapons technology company based there.

You can read Robo #1 right now, here on GlobalComix. If you'd like to support this project, head over to the Robo Kickstarter project page so you can sign up to be notified of its launch.
