A manga adaptation of J.M. Barrie’s classic story, Peter Pan by Elaine Tipping
Okay El Moochadores, this last year I started using Instagram for the first time (atomic_tails), and I still don’t know if I’m doing it right, but I do see a ton of cool art and comic projects posted there daily. Soooo… I thought I’d start to share some of these on my very own geek creative website. One such project is up on Kickstarter right now is from manga artist Elaine Tipping. The Peter Pan Manga – Volume 3 which, like the title says, combines the classic J.M. Barrie story with a very cool manga style. This third volume includes chapters 7-10 and if you contribute enough you can even get the previous two volumes.
Okay, not that I’m a huge Peter Pan or manga fan, but I actually do dig this project. I honestly do enjoy any sort of mash up and I think it’s a good step in the evolution of story telling. I’ve posted some sample pages below which show off Tipping’s incredible artistic talent and interesting take on a classic tale. Also, fuck Disney for trying to take other peoples stories and branding them as their own. Seriously. Peter Pan is in the public domain and belongs to everyone, not just the halfwits that bought (and ruined) Star Wars. Sorry, ‘couldn’t help my self…
Anyways (I gotta see a therapist) check out the sample pages below along with the promo video for the KS. Use the link above to visit the Kickstarter page and learn more about the project, rewards, and more about the comic. As of this post the project has more than half its funding and 20 days left to contribute. So, get on board and help make something very cool!
