The campaign on Zoop tops $20,000 on its first day.
Kill All Monsters artist Jason Copland’s been working on his latest project, Full Tilt, for the past five years. Fueled by passion and Slurpees, Copland has created an “action-filled future noir epic,” loaded with love, grit and numerous two-page spreads.
The 300+ page black-and-white hardcover went live on Zoop yesterday, asking for a modest goal of $10,000. Full Tilt was well over $20,000 by the end of the day, and is approaching $30,000 as I type this.
“Full Tilt is a gritty, violent tale about a 23rd century crime family consigliere who must face the consequences of a choice he made between love and loyalty,” Copland said in his newsletter. “It’s an action filled future noir epic that touches on many eternal themes such as love and hate, family and power.”

We Only Kill Each Other will debut on the digital comics platform in November, followed by a print release from Dark Horse Comics next April.
“We Only Kill Each Other is the kind of story I love telling,” Phillips said in a press release. “It’s got a historical setting and flawed heroes, in this case Jewish gangsters who are opposing Nazis in New York City in the 1930s. It’s based on actual events but, at the same time, it unfortunately feels very contemporary as America wrestles with division in our streets. This feels like the right time to tell this story, and I couldn’t be happier to team with Peter, Ellie, Troy and Dave to tell it.”

Stephanie Phillips and Dean Kotz bring a WW2 true-crime thriller to comics.
Marcel André Henri Félix Petiot may not be as well known as other serial killers, but the Butcher of Paris will soon get the spotlight in a new series from Dark Horse Comics.
Writer Stephanie Phillips, artist Dean Kotz, colorist Jason Wordie and letterer Troy Peteri will team for The Butcher of Paris, a new limited series about the infamous murderer who plagued France during World War 2. Dave Johnson will supply the covers.
“When I learned about Petiot, I knew the story needed to be told,” Phillips told Women Write About Comics.” You can read details about the case online, but there is something I think we miss when we are simply reading facts about Petiot. This is a story about a serial killer hunting in a city occupied by Nazis—one of the darkest periods in French history (really, world history writ large). This case is about so much more than a serial killer, and I think that’s why it stood out to me. I just kept coming back to it.”
