Boundless Vol. 1 Kickstarter: A Love Letter to Science

Love science?  Love comics?  Then I'd encourage you to take a look at Boundless Vol. 1: A Science Comics Anthology, the new Kickstarter from the Boston Comics Roundtable (BCR).  The anthology will explore different scientific processes, technologies, methods, and historical moments in a number of different scientific fields. The goal of the comics creators is make something fun as well as educational.

The BCR is the oldest and largest community of independent comic creators and cartoonists in the Boston area.  They hold weekly meetings to discuss news in comics, showing of members’ work, and to encourage professional development. They've previously successfully published a number of anthologies on various topics (including horror, reviewed here).

The funds will be used to cover printing costs as well as pay the artists and writers.  As the Kickstarter states, the BCR is "a volunteer-based, not-for-profit organization, we don’t have much funding and so we’re turning to Kickstarter."  BCR provides the following breakdown on Kickstarter costs:

The sample pages show a nice variety of both topics and art styles.  Fun and educational comics are always a great idea, and this seems like a very worthy project.
