Kickstarter projects: The Cartoon Art of Mike Deodato Jr

While the great Kickstarter debate rumbles on, and Tom Spurgeon is doing a spiffy job of collating opinion and experience, I like to think we're all old enough to decide for ourselves what we want to do with our money. If there's any kind of fatigue on my part, it's the constant onslaught of promotion of projects, but that too is easily avoidable.

So I'll continue to back comics I find interesting, the latest of which is this volume of cartoons by Mike Deodato Jr. Mike's been an artist for Marvel for over 20 years, and I can't say I'm aware of his work: my only partaking of the Big Two's output is the odd Batman book. Mike is producing a collection of really sweet cartoons centred around him and his family and they look lovely.

I like this sort of stuff- happy, family orientated cartoons. $10 will get you a digital copy of the book and $25 a physical version. Funding ends on August 22nd. You can find out more here.
