Kickstart it: Deep in the Woods by Noah van Sciver and Nic Breutzman

Honestly, it's been a while since any comic project on Kickstarter has caught my attention enough for me to pre-order a copy: the last one was Mike Raicht and Zack Howard's Wild Blue Yonder back in early August. But Noah van Sciver and Nic Breutzman's weird and creepy looking Deep in the Woods has changed that- not only interesting enough for me to dish over the monies, but to make me want to share it with a wider audience so you can get a copy of your own. I'm a bit of a sucker for comics printed on newsprint- (check out Brendan Leach's Pterodactyl Hunters in the Gilded City from Top Shelf) so this grabbed my attention from the off. And that image of the headless cow/bull helped decide the rest. What can I say? I'm a strange folk. 

The comic will be produced in a larger format- 17 1/2" by 11"- which is roughly the size of a broadsheet, but a little narrower and longer, I think and the stories are descirbed as 'urban myth/fairytale-ish'. An advance copy will cost you only $8, incluse of shipping in the US (and that's a pretty sweet deal) and $18 for international orders. The guys have a $1000 goal, of which they have currently received $929 and have 16 days to go, so you're pretty sure of seeing a copy.

If it sounds like your thing, give it a look here.
