Help fund a comic about crime and beekeeping.
If you’re looking to back a Kickstarter project with (no, don’t say it) literal buzz (ugh, I said it), then check out Foulbrood, a new comic by Christopher Sebela (.Self, Crowded, Dead Dudes) and Claire Roe (Darkhold: Wasp, Bury the Lede).
The duo previously worked together on the queer reincarnation thriller We(l)come Back, and this time around they’re telling a crime story set in the world of beekeeping — if my cheesy lede didn’t spell that out for you.
Their campaign is to fund the first two issues of a six-issue series. They’re looking for $15,000 to bring them to print, and you’ve got until Dec. 11 to help them avoid the sting that comes with not getting funded.
(Sorry, I’ll stop now, I promise).

The last chapter of Peach Momoko’s story that re-imagines the Marvel Universe will arrive in March, followed by a trade paperback collection in April.
Since March, Marvel has published a series of connected one-shots written and drawn by Peach Momoko, as she re-imagined several Marvel characters through the lens of Japanese folklore. Next March, Momoko will wrap up the story she’s been telling with Demon Days: Blood Feud, which will “will tie up the current arc in the ‘Momoko-verse’ as Mariko Yashida’s mesmerizing adventure comes to an end.”
Blood Feud will pit Mariko against her sister, a silver-clad swordswoman named Ogin — who is also the Momoko-verse version of Silver Samurai.
“This was my first time writing and painting a long-term story and honestly I was a bit scared! But in the end I feel very proud to be able to create five issues in the span of a year and a few months,” Momoko told Marvel.com. “I hope everyone reading Demon Days sees my growth and experience leveling up in every issue. And I will continue to grow and hope one day to leave an important mark for everyone to see!”

The new graphic novel about missing persons and the Mothman legend will arrive next summer.
Oni Press will publish Silk Hills, an Appalachian horror graphic novel that plays off the legend of the Mothman by Ryan Ferrier, Brian Level, Kate Sherron and Crank!, next summer.
The graphic novel will tell the story of Beth Wills, who comes to the town of Silk Hills to find someone who doesn’t want to be found. Her search for a missing troubled youth finds her running afoul of the local drug trade, too-friendly creepers, a very sinister deer and psychoactive moth dust.
“Silk Hills was another chance to work with collaborators I adore and who, in turn, have faith in me when I say ‘Okay, but I wanna try something a little weird here,’” Sherron said. “I prefer to tell dark tales in colorful ways, especially when there’s light and life to dig out from beneath burnt-black story-skin, and bless the boys for supporting such choices from the outset.”
