There are a lot of Kickstarter campaigns out there trying to get you to part with your hard-earned cash. But how many of them can say they are from Ben Templesmith and 44FLOOD? That’s what sets THE SQUIDDER apart from all the rest and that’s why we want to bring it to your attention, because these folks do their due diligence when it comes to putting together an awesome project.
If you love Lovecraft’s Cthulhu and want to see it take a science fiction-inspired leap forward, then this is the one for you. Described as “an original graphic novel about an old soldier from a forgotten war in a post-apocalyptic world that has left him behind,” this is the first creator-run book from Templesmith in five years. It’s something near and dear to his heart so I have no doubt it’s going to be excellent from start to finish. Not to mention the fact that this Kickstarter beat it’s goal so well that they upped the length from 108 pages to 144 pages (33% more)!
Check out the video below for more information direct from Ben Templesmith himself.
I asked Ben Templesmith to give me a unique quote for this article and I don’t think I could have gotten a better one:
“Well, if you ever had a tentacle fetish and wondered what living in a Mad Max wasteland would be like with a grumpy old man, while being persecuted by a cannibalistic Squid cult that has an aversion to underwear… then this book miiiiight be for you.”
I can’t believe I feel like I actually need to pitch this to get you to go check it out. This guy co-created 30 Days Of Night, for Pete’s sake! THE SQUIDDER is going to knock your socks off, both with the art and with the concept. The campaign is fully funded, by the way, it’s over 500% to goal! How fantastic is that? Seems like lots of folks recognize the awesomeness here.
I urge you to take a look at the Kickstarter campaign page and pledge some cash! For a mere $20 you can get an exclusive limited edition print! Or a couple bucks more gets you a awesome tee. Make it $30 and you get the book mailed to your home. The incentives are abundant and well worth your time and effort, so check them all out to find what best suits you. Don’t delay, pledge today! I did!
