FUBAR Central Command is beyond proud to be featured in Kickstarter’s year in review. We got a mention for being the first ever Kickstarter funded graphic novel to hit the New York Times Best Seller’s list. We’re beyond proud to use a platform like Kickstarter to fund our projects. After reviewing the whole slide show of Kickstarter’s successes of 2012 I think it’s clear that the site and model aren’t going anywhere AND that they do amazing work and provide an incredible service by allowing independent projects to finance their dreams. Truly inspiring.
This morning NPR’s blog featured the list of projects mentioned in the KS slideshow. Once again we were humbled to see that FUBAR is at the top of the list of featured success stories.
I can’t help but think that our new volume FUBAR: American History Z is going to great things when it’s released in Spring 2013!
our newest volume FUBAR American History Z is just about in the can. We’ve taken the project to kickstarter to help raise funds for printing a ton of books in very early 2013. This volume is massive, clocking in at 32 stories, 326 pages. We’ve expanded from just World War II to now include the entire American Experience. The book is chronological and will be available in March/May 2013. IF you want to get your hands on it sooner along with some other awesome FUBAR merch, shoot over tour KICKSTARTER and help us fund the printing of this monster!

Beyond excited to share with you the variant cover to Ben & Tim Truman’s HAWKEN #6. Tim asked FUBAR Central Command to put something together for the variant of Hawken #6. Needless to say after we flipped our lids we knuckled down and came up with the pic above. Pencils by Dominic “Yeah Boy” Vivona. Inks by Steve “No Bigs” Becker. Colors by Jeff “El Jefe” McComsey. We were all honored to contribute to such a fine publication as HAWKEN. A super natural western about a twisted old gunslinger out to introduce a few former colleagues to the business end of his Navy Colts, HAWKEN is available at comic shops all across the country.
Thanks to the numerous signings and the pre-orders of FUBAR Empire of the Rising Dead lands on the NEW YORK TIMES Graphic Novels list for the week ending on January 14th, which was the week the book debuted in bookstores and comic shops all across the country. For an Independent/Small-Press book like FUBAR to end up on the NYT’s list is an amazing honor and speaks to the hard work done by all the creative teams involved. What makes this an even sweeter victory is that FUBAR: EotRD is the first project funded through Kickstarter to land on the NEW YORK TIMES Best Sellers List!
