The Indiegogo campaign for independent horror comic “Something Real” ends successfully
Over the weekend, the crowdfunding campaign for issue two of the indie comic series Something Real ended successfully, raising 213% of its original goal for a total of $7,470. Taking inspiration from supernatural horror classics such as Nightmare on Elm Street, Something Real is a tale of terror written by Joey Turnage and featuring illustrations by Ian J. Miller and colors by Fredrik Mattsson. We had a chance to interview Something Real writer Joey Turnage in September, which you can find here.
If you missed out on the campaign but still want the book, you’re out of luck for the moment. Unlike many other comic book Indiegogo campaigns, the Something Real project page did not transition to an in-demand store allowing latecomers to still get copies of the book. However, seeing as how this campaign for issue two included options to get book one, there’s a chance that the campaigns for later issues of Something Real could include options to pick up previous issues.
Congratulations to the Something Real project team of Joey, Ian and Fredrik on what was undoubtedly a grueling fundraising period. I’d say get some rest before putting your noses to the grindstone on the book, but I hear there’s bad things lurking in people’s dreams these days….
