So I donated some money to SLG’s kickstarter campaign last night – they’re working to build up their gallery facility which they use for staging concerts and art showings. This has proven to be another venue for them to possibly make a little extra money, and man do they deserve it. SLG should be raking in the dough with all the impressive talent they discovered and people they helped launch careers for, so if they need a few thousand bucks to get them up and running, I say let’s help them out, I know I personally owe them at least that much.
People tend to think you need a lot of connections and know the right people in comics or in writing or in hollywood to get any kind of career, but SLG are one of the very few people that a guy like me can come up with a clever but goofy little comic book and they’ll take a chance on. Frankly I wasn’t even that good when I sent them Emo Boy, but they felt there was something there that we could develop and when a lot of companies would have slammed the door in my face, they printed up my comic and did their best to get it seen. Even now that I’m writing books and working on video games, Dan is still pushing on the Emo Boy digital stuff and giving thought to the movie (that thing still exists, promise!) I know most of us “SLG people” feel a lot of loyalty to them. I wish I could donate more.
Anyway we’re down to about a week left and they really need a big push to get where they want to be, so please help at least pass the word – it’s up to each individual if they want to contribute anything, but at the least I’d like people to take a look and really give it some thought, these guys really deserve it.
