I write and draw my own comics, I'm not ashamed to say it.  Sometimes you get ideas in your head that HAVE to get on paper somehow.  But in a world where corporations set a certain standard, some ideas are hard to define and may not fit into a certain company's publication goals.  That's why self-publication is so great!  And since PCB loves to promote the self-published, we have a Kickstarter that would help some young authors and artists get their comic book ideas into YOUR hands!  Click the RAWR for more info on GRAVE SOLDIERS!!!!  Oooh wah ah ah ah!!







In the not-too-distant future, paranoia and fear force those who walk the halls of power to turn the American military machine loose around the globe. There are those who yell fascism and others who cry justice. But a few in uniform see an army stretched thin and young soldiers lost too soon. When a secret plan is hatched to train raw recruits to deal with the savagery of war, a new kind of horror is unleashed. On the other side of the country, another battle is beginning on the campus of a small Liberal Arts college. A protest of legendary proportions will be waged—one that would shake the very foundations of society itself—and it begins with an epic road trip. These two forces clash on an isolated island and when they do, the unthinkable happens. You get un-dead warriors. You get a bloody mess. You get…Grave Soldiers.







The Budget: Here's what your $11,500 pays for.







$4,000 Artist/Inker







$1,000 Colorist







$1,500 Lettering







$2,000 Printer







$1,500 Reward Fees and Shipping







$1,500 Marketing/Website/Kickstarter Fee






So if you can spare it, help out those who struggle to get their creativity out into the market. Who knows? Maybe you'll be funding the next big Vertigo series or SyFy Original Series...both would be a win. Good luck, Ben and Jeff!!
