Leaving Megalopolis' success with Kickstarter is just the thing Gail Simone needed to mount her comeback!
Gail Simone, formally a well known comic book creator who fell off the grid with the cancelation of Agent X in 2003, at least as far as this Marvel zombie can tell, announced via twitter this afternoon that her new project, Leaving Megalopolis, broke the Kickstarter(*) record set by noted socialist Marc Silvestri’s Cyberforce campaign.
The Outhouse is always looking for “feel good” stories, and we are happy to report that Simone’s comeback is off to a successful start. We can only hope that she can use this opportunity to get the attention of some mainstream publishers and, maybe, re-claim her place as the top female comic book creator.
On behalf of The Outhouse, congratulations Ms. Simone.
And, good luck.
(*)Kickstarter is a website that allows creators without the financial backing of a major corporation to obtain crowd funding for their projects, which obviously makes it perfect for someone like Simone.
Our friends at Nix Comics are sponsoring The Outhouse this week. Show them you appreciate it by checking out their comics. One dollar from every Nix Comics sold this month will go to Kirby-4-Heroes.

About the Author - GHERU
RU, or as he’s known in the writers’ room: the cute one, is relatively unappreciated in his time. RU’s YouTube show, RUviews is watched by literally multiple people every month and his Outhouse articles have helped line many a bird cage. Before you send RU a message, he knows that there are misspelled words in this article, and probably in this bio he was asked to write. RU wants everyone to know that after 25+ years of collecting he still loves comic books and can’t believe how seriously fanboys take them. RU lives in Akron Ohio (unfortunately) with WIFE, ‘lilRuRu, and the @DogGodThor. You can also find him on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, & even Google+ (if anyone still uses that).
