Jay Potts has been publishing his awesome, award-winning blaxploitation webcomic World of Hurt since 2009, and now he’s looking to bring the pain in print as well. And he’s using Kickstarter to hopefully make it happen.
Potts said he hopes to publish a hardcover collection of “The Thrill-Seekers,” the first storyline he serialized on the web about Pastor Hurt and his search for a missing college student.
“This Kickstarter project was started out of my desire to raise the funds to self-publish a graphic novel which collects the The Thrill-Seekers storyline,” Potts wrote on Kickstarter. “The graphic novel will also feature bonus material, such as production sketches, layouts and an introduction by author and filmmaker, David Walker of BadAzzMofo.com. The graphic novel will be an 88-page hardcover book with a landscape format of 13″ X 6.5″ to match the original dimensions of the comic strip. Although the interiors will be black & white, the cover will be in full color. Part of the Kickstarter funds will also be used to pay for an artist to paint over my cover pencils to recreate the classic, pulp feel of a Blaxploitation movie poster.”
And of course he’s offering rewards, including stickers, copies of the hardcover, original art and more, based on how much money you choose to contribute. Head on over to Kickstarter for more information.
