Splatto Comics’ “Jawbreakers: Grand Bizarre” surpasses $50k on Indiegogo
Last week, Splatto Comics founder and independent comic book creator Richard C. Meyer launched the latest crowdfunding campaign for Jawbreakers: Grand Bizarre, the latest installment in his highly successful superhero action series. Written by Meyer and featuring illustrations by Aaron Alfeche and colors by Color Channel, Grand Bizarre serves as an origin story for the Jawbreakers superhero team.
Here’s the official plot summary taken from the Grand Bizarre Indiegogo campaign page:
THE GRAND BAZAAR!
Every 66.5 years, the GRAND BAZAAR appears. Inside, ANYTHING can be found, haggled over, traded or bartered. There’s only ONE rule: you cannot use currency or credit to acquire that which you desire. Nothing has a COST. But everything has a PRICE!
FORGED IN BLOOD!
The men who who eventually form the JAWBREAKERS each find themselves in the Grand Bazaar for different reasons…but they end up banding together for SURVIVAL!
Backers can get a copy of Grand Bizarre and a pin-up poster for $25. If you have extra cash to spend, you can also pick up multiple copies of the book, a variant cover, a DevilDog cloth mask, and signed copies. There’s also a backing tier that includes GØD-K1NG, the previous book in the Jawbreakers series.
At the time of this writing, the project is already wildly successful having raised more than $50 thousand, crushing its original funding goal of $10 thousand.
