Sean Michael Wilson – first kickstarter!

NBM gang, here is my first kickstarter drive, which is going pretty well so far:

We now have a lovely KICKSTARTER drive up and running, for our documentary style graphic novel – PARECOMIC. Its a 200 page graphic novel we are working on now and very much enjoying, but need a bit of funding support on.

‘Parecomic: Michael Albert and the Story of Participatory Economics’ by Sean Michael Wilson and Carl Thompson, with an introduction by Noam Chomsky.

“…a graphic novel about something that affects us all: the system we live in – what’s wrong with it, and how we might be able change it for the better! The recent upsurge in popular protest in the USA and around the world shows that people are not happy with the state of things. The Occupy movements show us that many people would prefer a better system, a model that will work for the 99%, not just the 1%.”

So, please go and have a look at the info and video there, and pledge some funding support if you like the PARECOMIC project. The money is only a PLEDGE at first, it does not get taken out of your account now, its taken out about 2 months later, if the total target money is made. To pledge you just select an amount from the choices on the right side, and it processes it via amazon:

His main influences remain British and American creators - such as Alan Moore, Grant Morrison, Eddie Campbell and Harvey Pekar.
