Ethan Van Sciver launches “Cyberfrog: Unfrogettable Tales” on Indiegogo… it’s a pun, bitch
Over the weekend, independent comic book creator and self-proclaimed human sunbeam Ethan Van Sciver launched a crowdfunding campaign for Cyberfrog: Unfrogettable Tales, a remastered reprint of both of the rare Hall of Heroes Cyberfrog books. At the time of this writing, the project is well-beyond funded, having already raised nearly $40 thousand.
Here’s the summary of the project taken from the Unfrogettable Tales Indiegogo campaign page:
The original CYBERFROG comics that were published by HALL OF HEROES in 1994 are next to impossible to find, and if you do find them, they’re extremely expensive! Not only that, they were done in black and white and on cheap newsprint, with my sloppy hand lettering!
LET’S FIX THAT.
I’ve got KYLE RITTER, MASTER COLORIST, going over each page and bringing out gorgeous lifelike colors from my line art!
I’ve also got ERIC WEATHERS, MAN OF LETTERS, replacing the old word balloons, letters and FX with updated, clean and professional lettering that will be a pleasure to read!
Meanwhile, I’ve drawn TWO NEW COVERS after the original versions, and they’ll make this whole package something to treasure!
Backers can get a physical copy of either issue of Unfrogettable Tales for $10, while both will predictably cost $20. If you’ve got more green to throw around, there are also options for multiple copies of the books, signed copies, a blacklight poster featuring Salamandroid, and a 20-page ashcan-sized preview of the upcoming Cyberfrog: Rekt Planet.
