The Online Campaign Corner

May 19, 2017

In our continuing goal of highlighting BlackSci-Fi across the various creative spectrums, we here at are going to highlight some awesome Kickstarter/ IndieGoGo/ and GoFund Me campaigns you might want to donate to. Check out some of the below campaigns, and spread the word.

NIOBE: She is Life Hardcover & She is Death #1 Comic Book

From the Kickstarter website: “Get an oversized special Kickstarter Exclusive edition hardcover collection of NIOBE: SHE IS LIFE with 32 pages of extra material not contained in the retail edition paperback. Written by Sebastian A. Jones and Amandla Stenberg with art by Ashley A. Woods and Darrell May, the collection also has contributions by many talented artists like Jae Lee and Hyoung Taek Nam. You’ll also be able to get a Kickstarter Exclusive version of the first issue of the sequel NIOBE: SHE IS DEATH by Jones, Stenberg, May and artist Sheldon Mitchell. Be the first to read the book well before its in-store release next year.”

Route 3: Vol 1

Editor’s note: For full transparency, this campaign is for our Editor In Chief’s creator owned comic book series, Route 3.

From the Kickstarter website: Centuries old prophecies. Shadowy government conspiracies. Super heroic action. Just a typical day for teenager Sean Anderson. Route 3.

 Route 3 is a super-powered road trip from hell. A Stone Mountain, GA teen finds out he’s been granted with a set of spectacular abilities, that he knows nothing about. He’s now on the run from a wide array of folks in a sort of super powered arms race across the Southeastern United States. Explosions, gunfights, telekinetic feats of awesomeness, and a little personal growth are all thrown into the mix.

We’ve collected all three issues of the first story arc into a superb collected edition that also includes a cover page gallery, “DVD” extras, and a forward by the talented artist/ writer Takeia Marie (Contributor to Rosarium Publishing’s APB: Artists Against Police Brutality). 

We are raising funds primarily to get the completed collected edition, Route 3 Vol. 1, printed.

Let me repeat this:


All three issues of the award winning comic book series are completed, and are ready to be placed into your hands.

The Nubiamancy Productions Campaign

From the Go Fund Me website: Since April 2013, an online social media platform called Nubiamancy has been sharing content that features black/African people in science-fictional, fantasy, and horror settings; on Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, and as of recently, YouTube. This was started by myself, Asante Massawa, in order to a) help normalize seeing people of African descent in entertainment genres that underrepresent us, b) promote fantasy art/comics/films/animation/novels/photography that features people of African descent, and c) inspire creators to create more content in those veins.

After four years of posting over 10,000 images and videos, and after receiving thousands of comments and messages clamouring to see those works in live-action films, Nubiamancy is now embarking on a mission to turn the social media platform into a film studio. But we need your help. 🙂

The goal is to become a film studio that creates short films based on some of the content displayed on the pages. We will be contacting many artists, writers, and photographers in our back catalogue of shared works in order to bring many of the great pieces of art alive in high quality, but cost efficient, short films. The long term goal is eventually to transition into full-length feature films, but starting small is the way to go for now.
