The popular small press publisher, now in the hands of Paine after Dylan Williams lost his battle with cancer, has continued on, working to finish the series he started, such as Elijah Brubaker's Reich series, which would reach its twelfth issue as part of the two-book offering.

She'd like to make sure that Reich finishes, along with publishing other books that are in the same spirit as those that came before from Sparkplug, and as of this writing, they are extremely close to their $6500 goal, but still need several hundred dollars to put them over the top.
The two books that would be published in this offering include Reich 12, which is the last issue of the story of Dr. Wilhelm Reich, a protege of Freud with some controversial ideas. Brubaker has worked hard on this biography, and it would be a shame not to see it reach the end.
|A page from Vortex|
Bold, mystical, expertly designed and engrossing - Vortex follows the Miizzzard as he travels to a mysterious planet and battles a strange, regenerating monster. The story gets more complex as the Miizzz finds himself sympathizing with the monster and her kin.Now that's exactly the kind of book I'd love to see published!
If you agree, why not see if you have a few dollars to spare? Levels range from $5 postcard+FCBD offering to digital tiers for a bit more, physical copies (making it a matter of pre-ordering), and higher rewards that offer t-shirts and art.
