YouTube host and cosplayer Krystle Starr has collected enough funds on Kickstarter to turn her first attempt at a comic book into reality. You can back the Kickstarter now, if the video below tickles your fancy, as (at the time of writing) there’s still 27 days to go.
You can also go to the LGBTQ Prism Comics booth (#2144) at SDCC and pick one up in person.
There’s a lot of attractive women draw into skimpy shorts, sexy cosplay and with some egirl action in there too. However, as the author is a woman and the story is about Scooby-Do style adventures of her LGBTQ friends. So, I think we’re safely through any concerns about exploitation here and safely into the realms of entrepreneurship here.
A pledge of $10 will get you a digital copy of issue one. That’s 28-pages of colour, and you’ll get a certificate of badassery (which I think is the Texan way of saying you’re a good person).
Most backers have ignored the option to get the comic book. One, so far, has even taken the $500 route to be in the next issue. There are four planned.
There’s a lot of struggling comics on Kickstarter that deserve to find success. It’s good to be able to celebrate one and no bad thing that Starr was able to turn her Instagram audience into comic book readers.
