Have a few bucks to spare on someone else's project? Maybe you'd like to help get a short film about teenagers who download into physical bodies off the ground. Perhaps you're more interested in food and a cookbook designed to enhance your gaming experiences. Maybe you'd rather help fund the print volume of a long-running webcomic set in feudal Japan. Or you could use those funds to bring to life a new John K cartoon and get some cool gifts in the process.

John K's "Cans Without Labels": It's not really on-genre, but I'd like to point out that animator John Kricfalusi is running a Kickstarter to fund his short film "Cans Without Labels," starring Ren and Stimpy's owner, George Liquor. The story is based on John K's own childhood with a father who didn't believe in brand names and whose favorite thing to buy from the supermarket were cans no labels at all. For a mere $1 pledge, you'll receive a digital copy of "Cans Without Labels," and John K has a host of digital and physical goodies at the higher pledge levels.
