Crowd Funding Flash: Facebeast

kickstarter-logoThe “pioneer of bearded justice” is here! Facebeast is a series about a superhero who uses his beard to fight crime! Series creator Josh Dykstra has joined with artist Kate Carleton to bring you a hero that the manliest of men can appreciate, and they are using Kickstarter to ensure Facebeast lives on.

Issue #1 has already been completed, and the funding for this project is solely to get issue #2 printed. Worried about missing issue #1? Don’t be! Issue #1 is available as a PDF copy with any pledge level you make! Want to know more? Then take a look at the project video for preview art and a word from the writer, Josh Dykstra!


What’s the Money for? The original goal, which has already been surpassed, will fund the printing of the first run of issue #2. Extra money will go toward Facebeast touring the convention circuit and printing more issues of the comic. Stretch goals for the project will allow everyone at the $15 level get a printed copy of issue #1 at $2000 (already made), #3 at $3000, and #4 at $4000!

The Goodies: Well, you’ve already read the perks of pledging at the $15 level above, so that’s definitely the most bang for your buck. If you can’t afford that right now, you can a PDF of issue #1 for only ONE DOLLAR, or get both issues for five! If you find a little more change in the couch, then pledge at $8 and get a four button pack! Higher pledges will nab you sketch cards, a REALLY sweet T-shirt, commissioned artwork, original finished pages from the book, and even the chance to have your likeness used for a supporting character in future issues!

Sign Me Up! You’re still here?! Do you really need any incentive besides knowing the hero has a super-powered beard? That’s what I thought! Visit the Facebeast Kickstarter page and pick the pledge level that suits you.
