Vampire Hunter D comic Kickstarter

Post by usamimi » Thu Jun 30, 2016 8:29 am

Well, almost a year to the day, the team behind proposing a new VHD animated series has launched a Kickstarter for a VHD comic: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/19 ... -from-mars

There's a new interview with them on ANN as well, talking about the progress they've made on preproduction: https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/interv ... -d/.103801

Basically it feels like they're gonna use this comic as a gauge for if they think people want more new VHD stuff or not. So if you're interested in the animated series going forward, support the comic?

It looks like this Kickstarter is going to be pretty successful! As of now, it has $74,627 pledged of a $25,000 goal, and still has sixteen days left.

So now the comic seems to be in actual retail stores! I've already seen tweets from some comic shop owners saying they're already selling out of variant covers, so it sounds like it's selling well! Anyone here read it? I'm curious to hear opinions.

So my comic book shop only got me the white blank sketch cover that took them a month to get (probably not going to get anything else from them preorder wise since I didn't get the second issue I wanted, and ive heard other stuff about this store for years yadiyada...) and I got to read it today. Not sure what book the comic is adapted from, but it's super cool to read. I plan on getting them all and I haven't been this interested in reading a comic series since Dorkin brought back Eltingville Club.
