A new Kickstarter project has been making the rounds lately. What is it, exactly? I’ll let the creators explain:
MINI COMICS INCLUDED is a collaboration started by comic creators Tim Seeley,Steve Seeley, and Michael Moreci. Remember the fun you had with comics, toys, and cartoons as kids? That’s what we’re bringing back! Imagination! Excitement! Heart! We grew up on Kirby and He-Man, Toth and G.I. Joe and are now putting that exuberance and wonder into this unique project.
So the idea seems to be minicomics without the toys (although there actually are some toys available as incentives, albeit expensive, indie-art-type toys and nothing mass produced, as far as I can tell). Tim Seeley, you may recall, is the creator behind the popular comic Hack/Slash as well as writing some of the new Mattel-produced minicomics for Masters of the Universe Classics.
