Kickstarter of the Week: Adventures of a System Admin

Adventures of a System Admin is back on Kickstarter, with Back to Business. This is issue #5 for the series, and their third Kickstarter campaign.

Writer/Creator, Juan Espinosa, is a Systems Administrator in real life and created the series to help educate readers about S.T.E.M. and using technology safely. We’ve all had that moment of trying to teach your older family member about modern technology. I swear this is a phenomenon as old as time; I can just see a cave-teen trying to teach the older cave-man that fire good. Today it’s more like “No, deleting Internet Explorer doesn’t mean you deleted the internet, Grandma. Also, why do you still have Internet Explorer…?”

The campaign (which funded on day 1) is specifically to raise printing funds for the issue plus the new Volume 1 TPB that ...

Kickstarter of the Week: Little Deaths

I’m going to start this piece with a fun fact. Not every Canadian knows French. I’m from a part of the country not exactly known for being particularly “worldly” but I can recognize enough French to have traveled in French speaking areas like Quebec, France, Belgium, and Luxemburg, and not have too many issues. I use the word “recognize” not “read” very intentionally. I can often understand out what words I’m seeing, without truly reading them. I know enough that “Little Deaths” makes me smile. If you know why that’s a sort of double entendre, this book is likely for you.

Little Deaths is planned to be a series of short stories chronicling the life and travels of La Maupin, Julie d’Aubigny. The most well known story of her life comes from the heavily fictionalized 1835 novel Mademoiselle...

Kickstarter/Indiegogo of the Week: Belial #2

Belial is a 32 page action adventure hell comedy about the original creator of Hell. Lucifer has taken his domain from him, and after centuries of wasting away in a crummy bar he’s had enough! Now, with his impish cohort Linc and bar manager/former general Mammon, he seeks to take his powers back from the Four Horsemen and usurp Lucifer to once more be the ruler of all Hell!

Co-created by Shaun Barbour and Chuck Pineau this is more than just a comedic take on Hell. This is a chance for both creators to bring their sense of fun to comics, to temporarily ignore the shitstorm that is our world right now, and just laugh and enjoy.

If you read my review the other day, you’ll know that I very much enjoyed Issue #1 and I’m looking forward to getting my hands on Issue #2...

Kickstarter/Indigogo of the Week: Ultimate Articulated Cardboard Comic Book Action Cut-Outs

Every now and then something new and exciting crosses my desk. With my recent review of Muffenman #1 came another really cool Kickstarter project that includes Muffenman and many –MANY– more great characters. The campaign for the Ultimate Articulated Cardboard Comic Book Action Cut-Outs is chalked full of some legendary indie comic characters, in a medium that you’ll likely not see anywhere else. As the title implies, these characters have been turned into fully articulated cardboard cutouts, mounted on magnetic backings. What that means is you can turn your refrigerator into an indie-hero battleground of epic proportions.

Creator Luanga ‘Lue’ Nuwame, is best known for his YouTube YouTube channel The Homemade Game Guru...

Kickstarter/Indiegogo of the Week: New Bristol.

To a broad segment of the RPG world, one of the largest and most popular systems is Savage Worlds. Over the years I’ve seen a ton of games built around the Savage Worlds engine, but I’ve simply never had the time or opportunity to dig into it. As a result, I see the logo and just pass by. That is in no way a negative judgment, simply reality of our limited and linear time. The reason I bring that up is to frame where I’m coming from in this Spotlight. I didn’t come across it via the Savage Worlds community, but rather from Endless Realms, which I’ve reviewed in some detail...
