Crusade Comics’ sixth Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign, Zombie-Sama: Dorm of the Dead launched this past weekend and already nears its flexible $15,000.00 funding goal. 2019’s Zombie-Sama was co-creators Billy Tucci and John Broglia’s very first foray into crowdfunding Dorm of the Dead and it featured the Ashcan Edition to Crusade’s follow up campaign, Shi: Return of the Warrior. Dorm of the Dead’s campaign continues the tradition of debuting Crusade’s next project with the Shi: Gatecrasher Ashcan Edition.“For every new campaign, we offer a preview perk of a future crowdfunding project.” Stated Tucci. Shi: Gatecrasher, will debut Summer which will be complete before launch and this is our first creative salvo!” The 24-page B/W, Shi: Gatecrasher Ashcan Edition features word-balloon-less artwork by Tucci and script pages by writer J.C. Vaughn. Ashcan comics are unique to other books as they are printed in limited quantities and give readers an insight into the creative process of making a graphic novel by showcasing original pencil art and the writer’s full script pages that are given to the artist. The cover features Tucci’s iconic Ana Ishikawa, standing alongside Billy’s original conception of Gētokīpā, the character who would eventually evolve into the blockbuster indie sensation, Shi.
