Remember the toys and television shows from when you were a kid? The gang at Strange Kids Club never forgot, and they’ve been reveling in ’80s nostalgia and the associated characters on their blog and in their independent comics magazine Strange Kids Comix Magazine. And now with two issues under their belt (and sold out to boot), the club is going to Kickstarter to raise money to publish a third issue.
Described by founder Rondal Scott III as a mix of Mad, Heavy Metal and Plop!, Strange Kids Comix Magazine #3 promises a diverse list of contributors ranging from John Rozum (Xombi, Midnight Mass) to James Callahan (Rotting in Dirtville). This unusual gang of artists will run amok with the magazine’s mascot, Strange Kid, running into beloved 80s icons like He-Man, Beetlejuice and even Rainbow Brite.
The Strange Kids Club hopes between now until Sept. 17 to raise the final $414, although if they exceed their funding goal of $2,500 they promise to raise their print run from the initial 300 copies. For $8 you can get a copy of Strange Kids Comix Magazine #3 when its’ published, as well as digital editions of the sold-out first two issues.
