Welcome to Comic Watch’s Kickstarter Korner!
It’s that time when we spotlight some projects that we hope you will support and help spread the word about these great indie titles and don’t forget to check out our previous posts to see if some of those campaigns are still running:
Faceless and the Family
- Current Funding: $1,640
- Funding Goal: $12,000
- Days Left: 29
- Link: Faceless and the Family
The creator of the OGN STATIC, Matt Lesniewski’s latest project FACELESS AND THE FAMILY is the story of a small group of outcasts from different scenarios all on the outskirts of regular society come together over time and form a bond. They never belonged anywhere or have been exiled from normalcy, for their own reasons, and this is how they relate to one another. All the misfits are looking for something; Faceless: a new face so he can reconnect with his loved ones, Giant Jerry: new memories, Carp: a sense of real love and family, Highway Hal: his long lost wife, Jan.
Think of it like an even weirder, yet heartfelt spin on The Wizard of Oz, but completely it’s own. A sci-fi/ post apocalyptic journey with strange and lovable characters.

Brilliant but unhinged scientist and neurosurgeon, Dr. Brook Douglas, has gotten rich selling cybernetic monsters to criminal syndicates, and she co-created the Shark of War. Now she’s going to the next level – human experimentation.
Luckily for her (and no one else), her allies in the Mob are more than happy to hand over their enemies for her to do her worst. She conducts the most gruesome experiments, creates the most horrible hybrids, even children aren’t off limits.
Most die horribly, but a few survive, gaining incredible powers in the process. And they aren’t happy about what she’s done to them, no one more so than the Cthulhu Man, a being who grows so powerful, nothing can contain him.
his is a one and done 28 interior page spinoff from Shark of War, but don’t worry, you don’t have to have read Shark of War, but if you want to, every backer will get a digital copy of Shark of War #1 which will give you all the background on Dr. Douglas you’ll need.

Terrible accidents keep happening at the Speculative Technologies Laboratory (Spec Tech). The victims of these accidents gain destructive powers and/or become horribly disfigured. As a result, they lash out in shock and rage until stopped by local hero, Excelsius, with local reporter Carmen Ortiz covering the story. Then an enterprising lawyer named Carlo Scolari convinces the latest accident victim, Ted Wainright, to file a personal injury suit against Spec Tech rather than go on the usual rampage of revenge.
