After NOIR IS THE NEW BLACK and MUTINY, we decided to take our passion to the next level with the mothership of all projects: a Graphic Anthology about FUNK MUSIC and… A FUNKY COOKBOOK! Spearheaded by a musical legend: JELLYBEAN JOHNSON!
It was meant to be. Call it fate, human design, anything you want. But when FairSquare Comics was founded, its founder, Fabrice Sapolsky made no mystery of his love for Funk music. There are references everywhere in his work, mostly to Prince. Even MUTINY is inspired by a song the Purple One penned for one of his group (The Family).
Well, now, we’re paying the ultimate homage to a musical genre like no other. Think about it for a minute: Funk and Comics… The perfect match!
On April 14th, FairSquare Comics launches its most ambitious ambitious Kickstarter campaign to date and you’re all invited. We called it WE CAN FUNK: A GRAPHIC JOURNEY IN2 FUNKDOM. And because we like to do things our way, a companion book, an illustrated FUNKY COOKBOOK will also be part of the campaign.
We will soon reveal the 12 legends of Funk featured in the graphic novel as well as the creative teams who will bring their stories to life in comic book form.
We are also honored and beyond thrilled to have JELLYBEAN JOHNSON, a legendary Minneapolis producer and musician, original member of THE TIME and THE FAMILY on board with us as an ambassador.
While the Kickstarter will officially open on April 14th at 9 AM PST, you can already watch the teaser (below) and signup immediately for updates at our exclusive address: www.wecanfunk.art
