Just wanted to see what others are currently backing on KickStarter, comics-wise, as well as have a dedicated section to post about comics on KickStarter that I am backing, going forward.

I'm currently backing a KickStarter project called HP Lovecraft Versus Aleister Crowley. The creator is Montgomery "Monty" Borror.

What about you? What are you backing?

I was wondering if anyone that happens across this thread had read any or all of the issues of the Jesus E. Lee comic books series? If so, I was wondering what your thoughts and feedback on the characters or the series might be.

This is the opening page of issue # 3 of the Jesus E. Lee series. It features one of my personal favorite characters introduced in the series, thus far - this Reverend fellow.

I think that it is a terrific opening to a great issue. For me, personally, issue # 3 is the best issue out of the series, to date. The cast of characters is colorful, the color of the issue, itself, is more vibrant than ever, and the storyline is really starting to get interesting. That's what I think, but again, I am interested in hearing back from others who have also been reading the series, or who may have just picked up a single issue, at random.

It doesn't seem to be a series that has received much in the way of attention, thus far, by and large. Maybe it's just flying under the radar of many who read and enjoy comic books, or maybe the fact that my own local comic book store can't order it from their distributor (Diamond) is helping to keep the Jesus E. Lee series off the radar of many who otherwise consider themselves to be die-hard comic book fans.

I'm really looking forward to issue # 4 coming out, particularly since it will conclude the current story arc, if my understanding on that is correct.

Now, I know that many don't prefer comic books which touch on real world religions, and that some throughout the world choose to take offense at virtually anything that they view to be an affront to, or an offense against, the religion that they practice. To each their own, I suppose, but for those who aren't bothered by such in a comic book format, I would appreciate whatever input or feedback on the series that you might have to bring to the discussion.

I encountered the star character and namesake of the comic book in question, before I ever had read the actual comic books in the series. I was just browsing inked art on the deviant.ART site, and that's how I happened upon artist Nick Justus' online art gallery - which just so happened to contain several art pieces that contained the Jesus E. Lee character in them.

Looking forward to any dialogue on the characters or storyline from this series.

I tried, again, just now to figure out how to get a link to an image to be utilized by the link button in the forum. Yet, it just doesn't let me use the link button, itself, to provide a link to an image.

So, is there some trick that I am missing?

Requesting that the main image for the character Jesus E. Lee be changed to this.

this

this

to

http://static.comicvine.com/uploads/original/11111/111113948/3026320-jesuseleemainimage.jpg

I keep trying to follow the example shown on page 1 of this thread, for when requesting a change of a main image, and the system keeps telling me "tis but a barren wasteland," signifying that I am not doing something right, I assume. I can post the image as an image in the forum here, but I am trying to post it as a link. There's no preview button, so I can verify whether my efforts succeed or fail, before I actually post here. Sorry to be a bother. I've grasped some things about this wiki, but there's still stuff that I am trying to get the hang of. My apologies for the inconvenience.

After I post here, the links that I thought that I added end up being empty.

I kept editing this posting, and I see, now, that if I type in the character in the link box, that it will bring up a few choices. But, it doesn't offer me the actual image that I added previously to that particular character's page.

It's just a very unwieldy approach to linking. It's very susceptible to error.

Thew following two images are duplicates and need to be deleted.

I can't seem to get the actual link option to work, so I am probably doing something wrong. My apologies in advance. If someone could enlighten me, it would be appreciated.

Richard's Comics and Collectables in Greenville, South Carolina.

It's good to see Richard's Comics and Collectables represented on this thread, and it's especially nice to see them mentioned so early in the thread. For the mystic minded and insanely curious among you, here's a couple of handy links, one to the store's website and the other to the store's Facebook page.

http://www.richards-collectables.com

https://www.facebook.com/pages/Richards-Comics-Collectables/146085475454721

I only visit the store very infrequently, bordering on the rare. It is better men and women than I, that keep Richard in business. Thank God for them!

I am no fan of the store front. It's definitely got a better - and more believable - disguise than Clark Kent. Fortunately, they've got a Bat Signal in the window, beckoning unto comic book passers-by. And that sign - oh, that main sign that looms over the store from above. It's legible. I'll give it that. But, it's just too small, and lacks imagination. Of course, signs don't come cheap, these days. They remind me a lot of comic books, in that regard. But, hey! At least the sign is there. At least Richard keeps flying the colors of Comicdom. Just be careful not to miss it, if you drive by.

While I'm playing the role of the villain, and critiquing a few things that I don't like about the store, let's take those powers of criticism inside. That's right! Right past that plain Jane front door, into the inner sanctum of The Richard, himself.

It's just so small inside.

Or maybe it just seems that way to me. There's just soooOOOOooo much stuff inside, that it really just cries out in collective screams for more space to manifest itself in. Through his manipulation of the mystical arts, Richard has apparently managed to contain an explosion of interesting stuff in an artificial shell that is coincidentally just exactly the same amount of space as the inside of this store. It's strange. It's bizarre. It's inexplicable. But, by God, he's done it!

It really is a wonderful little place. I wish that it were a little more brightly lit, but it's not dark, if that's a concern. It's not a place of gloom. The staff isn't populated by freaks straight out of some second-tier rogue's gallery. They've always let me browse to my heart's content. I always feel a little guilty when I leave without buying something - which, thus far, has been always. It's fortunate for me that it's about a twenty minute drive to get there. Even now, I hear it calling to me.

It's located inside the city limits of the City of Greenville, South Carolina, for those souls who like to wander. That city can always certainly stand to have a few more superheroes. That's for sure! But, then again, what city couldn't?
