Sullivan’s Sluggers is a new 200 page graphic novel from Mark Andrew Smith (Gladstone’s School For World Conquerors) and James Stokoe (Orc Stain). It’s a warped baseball horror story that’s sure to make you laugh and sure to make you cringe. Rather than just let it drop onto the shelves naturally, Smith is building it up on Kickstarter to allow the fans to decide if they want it, and to personally support two great creators without the middle man eating up all the profits. This is going to be the next mammoth campaign (EDITOR'S NOTE: It reached its goal in 4 hours, and is still climbing high) so hit the jump to see why you will be guaranteed to want to hop on board.
- Mark Andrew Smith is a great writer. With Gladstone’s alone under his belt, Smith has proven himself a creator who makes fun comics as comics should be.
- James Stokoe does Orc Stain. I’m doubting much more actually needs to be said on this one.
- The HC of this 200 page tome is only $30. I can’t see anyone crying foul on this pricing, it’s actually pretty fantastic. I see books with a more slender size and unknown creators (thus upping the gamble of the investment) do decent money so I’m assuming this one will be mammoth.
- If you are a little light on cash this week then there’s a PDF version of the book for only $10. What a bargain! Oh, and you get that PDF with the $30 HC anyway. I love it when campaigns combine like that. I know I’ll want the HC on my shelf but I also dig having one on my iPad to show others or just enjoy in transit.
- There are also shirts, which should be rad.
