Whew, I'm back from SDCC 2012! That was something. I will have a proper follow-up soon, but first, I want to draw your attention to a project I think may be worthy of your support: BRIGADA by Enrique Fernandez.
I've never featured another artist on this blog before, but I've been a fan of Enrique's work for several years now. His work is always stylish, with his mastery of Corel Painter and his fearless drawing, and I would love to see his own project succeed.
Enrique has produced numerous books for European publishers over the years, and his Wizard of Oz was adapted into English and published by Image Comics in the US a few years back, but I believe BRIGADA is his first creator-owned project, and he is turning to crowd-funding to see if he can do it all on his own. Enrique is a pro and will deliver the goods if he gets his funding, so please check out the BRIGADA project page (and Enrique's blog for lots more awesome work) and make a pledge if you like what you see.
I wasn't familiar with Verkami, the funding website, but it appears to be the European equivalent of Kickstarter and the pledging process was very easy. Enrique is offering all sorts of cool rewards for your support, so hopefully something will catch your fancy.
