Okay, I wasn’t sure if I had time to write about this Kickstarter project, and I know I’m just contributing more to your Kickstarter FOMO, but if you’re a fan of Jake Parker you should at least hear about this project. Parker is the creator of Missile Mouse and has also done a lot of other short comics stories that have appeared in various anthologies, some now out of print. His Kickstarter campaign is for a hardcover collection of many of these stories — and because he’s already blown way past his original goal, he’s been able to throw a lot of nice bonus rewards, including a brand new 18-page story.
I really love Parker’s artwork and stories, particularly the fact that he has a few different styles, as you can see on the Kickstarter page and the samples below. The campaign also includes a lot of options for some bonus artwork — he’ll draw a sketch in the book for you, or you can get a print of some of the characters. I’ve already backed a copy with some artwork because I know my daughters will love it.
If you’re looking for a cool collection of all-ages comics, sort of a one-man anthology, then take a look at The Antler Boy and Other Stories — there’s less than a week left. Hit the jump for a few more images from Parker’s comics.
