Cartoonist Matt Kindt has launched a Kickstarter for a new MIND MGMT comic and read-along record. The campaign will bring back the creator-owned comic for a new stand-alone story along with a 7" read-along record from Kindt and legendary patriarch and voice-actor Clint McElroy of The Adventure Zone podcast.
"I grew up loving read-along book and records like Planets of the Apes and Pete's Dragon and I've always wanted to experiment with this format to tell a comic book story in a new and unique way," said Kindt. "Rather than simply having a comic that illustrates the audio, the comic book story will subvert the audio that you're hearing and the images will work completely differently when viewed while listening to the record."
The new MIND MGMT comic book is a full color, 24 page comic with a gatefold in the back that will hold the record in place. The MIND MGMT 7" record will be pressed by United Record Pressing. Kindt and McElroy will be donating 10% of the profits to the Hispanic Federation, the nation's premier Latino nonprofit membership organization which is aiding Puerto Rico recover from Hurricane Irma. Founded in 1990, Hispanic Federation seeks to support Hispanic families and strengthen Latino institutions through work in the areas of education, health, immigration, civic engagement, economic empowerment, and the environment.
As of this writing, the Kickstarter has raised $22,000+ with a $12,000 goal.
