Kickstarter (www.kickstarter.com) is one of many crowdfunding platforms that are used by comic book creators these days to get their works funded and printed. Many high quality books are being made available on the platform (and other similar platforms), including books by large comic companies. This legitimizes the platform, and enables comic fans to find some really excellent books that aren’t easily available in stores. After all, there is only so much shelf space, but the Internet is infinite!
Strider Nolan Media has been using Kickstarter to fund its comic book projects, which enables us to hire some big name talents like Kevin Maguire, Darryl Banks, Keith Champagne, Netho DIaz, Jack Herbert, Fred Benes, and Bruno Abdias. Our comics are intended to maintain high in quality in terms of writing as well as art. Stay tuned to this website, or my Twitter account (@stridernolan13) for upcoming projects.

“Be prepared to be whizzed through breathtaking, electrifying experiences in this absorbing thriller. John’s courage and relentless determination to serve with his team, in the face of great perils, advanced him to rise to the highest levels as a Navy Seal. John’s ability to forgive, despite the deep scars of racism encountered even as he navigated the deadliest challenges of battle, demonstrated his commitment to the principles of forgiveness laid out by Christ.”
“This is definitely a must read, even if you’re not interested in the Vietnamese War. Bravo and kudos to the authors for letting the reader in on this amazing real life story of a true American hero!”

Strider Nolan Media was commissioned by the Heritage Conservancy of Bucks County, Pennsylvania to reprint Kenneth Grahame’s The Wind in the Willows, originally published in 1908. The text was modernized for easier reading by today’s youth (and adults), while at the same time remaining faithful to the original story and keeping its intrinsic whimsy intact. Original art, including full color paintings and black and white line drawings, was created by renowned impressionist painter Alan Fetterman. Details on how to obtain a copy can be found on the Heritage Conservancy’s website.
