You may recall a previous post in which Karen Harte and Jessica Maybury, of Girls like Comics, appealed for submissions for an anthology of stories, illustrations art on the themes of repealing the 8th amendment, reproductive rights and bodily autonomy in Ireland.
They have received the submissions and have now launched a Kickstarter campaign to cover the production costs of the book.
All additional proceeds from this and the sale of the book will go directly to the Abortion Rights Campaign (ARC).
Three of my good friends [Ciara Costelloe, Brian O Moore and Eoin Costelloe, of Decking Good Games] have set up their first Kickstarter project, it’s for a board game they designed themselves from scratch, where you play as a mighty queen bee and try to claim the garden as yours while opposing other queen bees and their armies. It would be ace if you guys were able to get the word out…
When the original “Charlie the Unicorn” video got such an enthusiastic response after its release (way back in 2005!) I decided to write a roadmap for the series. In the time since then I’ve produced three additional episodes, all following that roadmap. I love the series, and I really didn’t want to mess up what made it special by pumping out a bunch of episodes without good reason. If I did that, it would be Garfield. Every episode would involve Charlie throwing himself into a pan of lasagna and then assaulting a dog. What a world that would be.
With a month to go, he’s already achieved twice the 25,000 target.
So that’s a thing that’s happening then.
Here, in case you haven’t already watched it several times – is the series so far.

Can it possibly fail?

We are two Irish guys who have just launched a Kickstarter campaign for a monstrous game called ZompireWolf. You may have come across this character on the Huffington Post or seen the Rubberbandits talking about it on Facebook! ZompireWolf is part Zombie, part Vampire and part Werewolf… and all trouble! We hope we have created on of the most unique characters ever but may be slightly biased!
Just wondering if you might give us a bit or coverage and a shout out to potential backers to the 2nd Kickstarter we are running for my Cu Chulainn graphic novel trilogy, “Hound”.
It ends on Sept. 11 and got off to a great start but we need to boost backer numbers to make the target. We are talking to publishers about doing a paperback edition for worldwide release but I want to Kickstart the creation of the art and produce a high end edition to showcase what it possible.
Barry Devlin (ex-Horslips) co-wrote the book and film adaptation, which is ongoing. The film is being developed in partnership with Oscar winning UK producer Hugh Welchman and was supported by The Irish Film Board and Northern Ireland Screen.
I’ve been working for the past few months on making a pair of inside out jeans – and just launched a kickstarter campaign… I wonder if you could help get the ball rolling on it by giving it a little push?
