Kickstartering that Lovise and Shealy

It's down to the crowdfunding wire for Couri Vine graphic novel

Yeah, we told you about what Leah Lovise and Vanessa Shealy have been working their creative asses off on for a while now: a kid-friendly series of comics about a young lunar citizen who's resisting the treachery fomented by the cretin currently in charge of Earth's natural satellite.

She's no Flash Gordon … but she might save every one of us.

Couri Vine is a stirring adventure, alright, and a perfect gift for the young 'uns in your care or acquaintance.

Never mind, even, how much the story might resonate with modern times – what with that orange shitgibbon of a POTUS now trying to rip chunks out of our national parks and feed them to his favorite corporations – because this rollicking science-fiction tale of the future totally stands on its own.

Or, rather, it's gonna stand on its own … with a little help from the comics-loving Kickstarter crowd, as the clock ticks down on the current campaign and you make a joyous difference and get yourself a delightful item or two for the upcoming holidays.

Couri Vine?
"Girl. Nerd. Superhero."

Hell, yes – we all know a few of those, don't we?
Let's give 'em some props – all the way to the moon!
