Some of the biggest creators in comics are making their own versions of the fantastical Little Nemo comics, and you can help bring their creations into print. Plus, you can fund another season of the Fallout fan series Nuka Break and a comic that combines hardboiled crime novels with nursery rhymes.

Winsor McCay's Little Nemo in Slumberland gains new life as dozens of creators, including Michael Allred, Paul Pope, Yuko Shimizu, J.H. Williams III, Charles Vess, David Mack, J.G. Jones, Craig Thompson, Paolo Rivera, Carla Speed McNeil, Bill Sienkiewicz, P. Craig Russell, Ronald Wimberly, Denis Kitchen, Jill Thompson, Stephen R. Bissette, Gabriel Bá & Fábio Moon, Farel Dalrymple, John Cassaday, and Cliff Chiang, put their own spin on the comics classic. You can preview some of the new Little Nemo comics over at the Kickstarter campaign site or pledge for a copy of the book. The 16"x21" hardcover is meant to be an art object and doesn't come cheap; it's available for a $100 pledge. Prints from the collection are available at lower pledge levels, however.
The acclaimed web series Fallout: Nuka Break ran for two seasons, and now the team is returning for another tale from the Fallout world—this time, focused on the gas mask-wearing Ranger's story. For a $25 pledge, backers can get all three series as a digital download.
Writer Paul Jenkins returns to his world of Fablewood, a forest where all the stories ever told are divided by genre borders, this time with artist Ramon Bachs:
FICTION SQUAD tells the story of Frankie Mack, a failed gumshoe detective from the Realm of Crime Fiction, a lost character from an old 20-page novella that nobody remembers. After a lifetime of failure, Frankie crosses the genre border into the Realm of Children's Stories where he discovers that every nursery rhyme is a crime scene. But the Realm of Children's Stories is a dangerous place—the Queens and the Witches are the Mob, the Mayor is a Crooked Man, and the Police Chief, Tom Thumb, is in everyone's pocket! And when someone drops a house on the Wicked Witch of the East it's up to Frankie and his idiotic partner, Simple Simon, to solve the crime before the Madonnas tear the place apart.
For a $15 pledge, backers can receive PDFs of each Fiction Squad issue. They can get physical copies for a $25 pledge.
