Hello friends and Geek fans! The RAGIN’ team of Meredith Loughran and Nita Lanning bring us their list of curated crowdfund campaigns for comic books, graphic novels, and whatever captures their attention. These campaigns are ending soon so be sure to check them out and tell them you found it on Geek Insider.
MRDR WPN #1
While on a mission to obtain data from a rebel gang, MRDR WPN jacks into a hidden information system and accidentally frees himself from the mind control of his hackers. Discovering the location of a captured woman, he sets out to find her and learn the truth behind what’s going on.
Prepare for the next generation of military combat.
The Nebulizer #1
A chronic asthmatic and his feisty A.I.-controlled nebulizer suit fight through a post-apocalyptic world filled with allergen mutants.
The Nebulizer is about a chronic asthmatic named Conner and his feisty A.I.-controlled nebulizer suit (Albi) as they fight through a post-apocalyptic world filled with allergen mutants. It’s Bubble Boy meets I Am Legend with a little TMNT sprinkled in there for funsies.
I’ve heard my whole life, “Man you sound like Darth Vader with your nebulizer going.” or “Wouldn’t it be awesome for you to just have a suit like that all the time?”. And that got me thinking…what if I did have a suit that was a nebulizer? Thus The Nebulizer was born.
It’s a comic about overcoming suffering and learning to embrace the suck. It’s about friendship and what a family looks like. It’s about contentment and remembering that no matter how bad life gets, it could always be worse, and you have to learn to find the good and laugh during the pain, or else the sadness will just overwhelm you. But ultimately, this comic has become my therapy. It has become a way for me to fight back against the thing that has plagued me my whole life. I welcome you to join me in this fight and have some fun along the way.
Guano Guy #4 plus all 7 other Guano Guy comics
Do you love wild sarcasm, witty lampooning, dark comedy, and glorious failure? Then check out the Guano Guy and get all that. If you’re a fan of The Venture Bros, Sponge Bob Square Pants, or Robot Chicken, then this is most definitely the cartoon on paper you’re looking for. I’ve been told it’s the most fun you can have reading a comic book. Someone actually said that you ask. I’m sure someone did.
The Guano Guy is shameless self-promoter, out to may a buck by saving people. His rival Mr. Marvelous Man can’t be bothered to compete, but reporter Rita Reteaka is starting to get all the fame, as her media career brings here closer and closer to the action. Yes they’re a cast of lovable jerks and you can follow all of their adventures in, The Guano Guy. And remember, If no one sees you save the day, did it really happen? Probably, but you won’t make any money off of it.

The Legend of La Mariposa is a colourful all ages romp that feels like a combination of Nacho Libre meets Samurai Jack with a dash of Steven Universe. You don’t have to be a wrestling fan to enjoy it, you just have to like colourful characters, high-energy fight scenes, silly jokes and HEART.
The Book of Sarah #1
The Book of Sarah is a story following Sarah, the wife of Orion. Queen of the Lycans and Leader of one of the last surviving forest tribes during the Apocalypse.

Sarah’s mission is to dismantle all that Lucifer stands for and help usher in his fall, chaining him under the earth for a thousand years! This first book is a great intro issue into the story of Sarah!

This book is a hybrid of comic book and novel. When going through the book on the left you have the written story and on the right you have the matching comic book panels with story also.
Dig Two Graves Vol 2
After the brutal murder of her family, former soldier Miranda Stone is left to navigate anger, sadness, and the desire for revenge.
Dig Two Graves, a comic book series created by Jim Tanner, is an action-adventure-drama throwback to classic revenge movies of the 70’s and 80’s with a modern twist. The series—planned for 12 issues of 40 full-color pages—follows Miranda Stone, a soldier who returns home from deployment only to witness her husband and son gunned down in cold blood. In the wake of her tragedy, Miranda must put the pieces together to find out who killed her family…and try not to get killed herself along the way.
DTG #2 picks up with the aftermath of the first issue’s climactic shootout, diving deeper into the story of Arturo. With his biggest hurdle out of the way, he—along with his son, Max, and brother, Gonzalo—prepares to do everything necessary to see his plans come to fruition, even if it means further increasing the body count.
