Joe has been working on The Great Pacific for a while now, but he needs help getting it over the finishing line. The Kickstarter Fund will be used to help pay his artist, editor, designer, and letterer on the project, which is what Kickstarter is for.
From the Kickstarter page:
Great Pacific is a full-color sci-fi adventure comic book series set to debut in the US comics market in October 2012….
… Great Pacific tells the story of Chas Worthington, recent heir to one of the richest oil fortunes and most successful corporations in American history. In a defiant act that seems crazy to most and criminal to many, he sheds his former life of wealth and influence to settle the infamous Great Pacific Garbage Patch, planting his flag and declaring the environmental wasteland a new, sovereign country.
The art is fucking amazing, really, and I’m ashamed to say I didn’t even know the Garbage Path was a real thing.
