Joe Spicer’s Super-Noir Comic “Crazy 9” Now on Indiegogo

On Tuesday, Star Cross Comics and independent comic book creator Joe Spicer launched a crowdfunding campaign for Crazy 9, a 60+ page graphic novel that Spicer promises is 100% “finished” and ready to print.

Written by Spicer and featuring illustrations by Jacob Elijah, Grant Perkins, Brian S. Dawson, Noah Whyler, Samax Amen, Shawna Mills, Adrian Fernandez (okay, that’s a lot of artists), Crazy 9 is described as a “super noir”

Here’s the official plot synopsis taken from the Crazy 9 Indiegogo campaign page:

“Allow your mind to wander into a vibrant urban jungle, teeming with color and excitement, where unique and entrancing characters greet you on every corner, each with their own destiny and each with their own secrets. A young woman stands in the road, running her fingertips through a waterfall of blonde hair, she catches your eye. The stainless steel barrel of a gun glistens in the moist sunshine as it rests against her temple. She pulls the trigger. She is now infected with the drug, Crazy 9. Soon she will know her destiny.”

Backers can get a digital version of Crazy 9 for $5, while physical copies (including a digital version) start at $10. If you have more money to spend, you can also pick up the following:

  • A Crazy 9 t-shirt
  • Poster
  • Trading cards
  • Bullet necklace
