After a busy week of birthdays and weddings, the radar list is here! I’ve got some great stuff for you this week, and as always thanks for reading and enjoy!
Finding Molly: An Adventure in Catsitting by EMET Comics
Finding Molly: An Adventure in Catsitting is a webcomic about the unemployed, art school grad, Molly Sanchez-Talebi. Hesitantly, Molly begins catsitting to pay the bills, until she can find her way out of suburbia and an artistic rut. The comic follows her misadventures and her journey to self-discovery. The comic has been free on the web since January and has seen great success and support so far. This Kickstarter is to bring the comic from the web to the physical world in the form of a hardbound, 128-page, full-color graphic novel. Besides the book, the campaign offers a variety of different goodies, such as stickers, pins, shirts, totes, and prints. They are also offering commissions for anything you’d like, including portraiture of your cat! There are quite a few artists to choose from with varying rates for each, but be quick, as there are a limited amount of spots for each artist.

Heart of Millyera: Prelude by Jana Hoffman
A post-colonial, steampunk epic, Heart of Millyera follows the story of a young geology student named Ida after she discovers a mysterious object at the bottom of a lake. The object held Millyera, a childlike spirit, as old as the universe. Ida becomes her guardian, as Millyera has been stripped of her ancient powers and has become lost on this world. Ida is joined by her two colleagues, Celeste and Gil, and together they help Millyera navigate her way in this new world. The Kickstarter aims to bring a 20 page preview copy of Heart of Millyera to life, so that the creators can share the story at conventions, but also with backers.
