Brian Clevenger, the guy who writes the comic we like to refer to as Atomic Robo, has a new project he’s hoping to get off the ground. Even though it doesn’t include an appearance by an atomic-powered science-adventuring robot built by Nikola Tesla, we thought you might still like to know. Head over here for more information about the series, Kickstarter rewards, and to donate to see “The X-Files meets China” in print.
LeVar Burton is asking for pledges from viewers like you to help Kickstart a new online Reading Rainbow.
Beth Riesgraf (Leverage‘s PARKER!) and Erika Christensen are looking for a little help to get their new sci-fi reality-TV parody Project Moonbase off the ground. The show involves a mix of scientists and reality-TV show rejects living on the moon when “the moon is knocked out of earth’s orbit and into an uproarious sci-fi odyssey. Humanity’s least deserving ambassadors will meet alien cultures, tackle reality TV tropes and contend with zero gravity toilets.”
On a totally unrelated note, can I borrow $506?

The Adventures of Aero-Girl is a “modern Golden-Age story of a teen superhero dealing with the death of her hero father with the help of a super-powered gorilla.” C’mon, doesn’t that sound like something you’d be willing to support? The proposed all-ages project from DeWayne Feenstra, Axur Eneas, Juan Pablo Riebeling, and Adam Wollet is a “gateway comic that can introduce young readers to the medium, and for it to be something lapsed readers, who gave up on the ‘dark and gritty’ comics, can use to reignite their passion.” You can check out more information about the project and pledge your support here.
