Check out these new comedy Kickstarters

I have a list of Kickstarters focused on comics here. There are quite a few here and so I’m not going to highlight them all, but one that really caught my eye is Kill Transit Tanager Through Karl Kerschl. I saw the art and immediately got Samus vibes and was intrigued. It sounds like a pretty cool comic. It’s also important to note that Rise of Izta launched this week and is almost over already, so hurry up if you like those. Which of these projects are you most interested in and what other projects should we look at? Let us know in the comments below.
