Mitch Breitweiser’s “Red Rooster: Golden Age” graphic novel hits Indiegogo; fully funded in hours
On Thursday, Mitch Breitweiser’s Red Rooster: Golden Age went went live on Indiegogo, and reached its $15 thousand funding goal approximately two hours later.
Featuring illustrations by Mitch Breitweiser (Captain America), colors by Elizabeth Breitweiser (Batman) and scripted by Mark Pellegrini (Black Hops), Red Rooster: Golden Age is described as Rockwell meets Lovecraft in a dust bowl-era, southern gothic cape & cowls mystery.
The Red Rooster and his allies are celebrated vigilante folk heroes during the early 20th Century, but at the height of their success a cabal of his most notorious villains conspire to ruin him and the Red Rooster Legacy forever.
Those who donate to the crowdfunding campaign will receive a variety of perks. All backers who donate at least $25 will receive a copy of Red Rooster: Golden Age signed by the entire creative team and an “Order of the Dawn” sticker. Higher tiers can receive a combination of extra books, a sketchbook, a lapel pin, your likeness drawn into the book, original artwork including head sketches and full watercolors, and some even crazier bonuses if you’re a particularly high-roller.
At the time of this writing, the Indiegogo campaign has raised over $38 thousand from 654 backers, and the number keeps climbing with nearly every page refresh. So far, only two stretch goals are listed on the Red Rooster: Golden Age page. The first expands the book from 48 to 60 pages if the campaign raises $60 thousand, which seems all but guaranteed at this point. The next stretch goal is set for $90 thousand, but what that will unlock is yet to be revealed.
