On the It’s Alive Facebook page, Drew Ford’s wife posted a photo of him in the ICU unresponsive and hooked up to tubes. Haven’t seen any updates in the last couple days.

Edit: Drew has passed away from Covid-related pneumonia.

That's terrible and sad His wife Kiki's writeup on the GoFundMe page is heartwrenching.

I'm not sure when I started but comics are about 25% of the projects I've backed on KS.
Currently active ones:
The Complete Giant Days which I think I read through on Comixology Unlimited, but I haven't touched that app since the great reboot debacle, and this series is worth a revisit.
Destiny vol 6 - I just recently received my all-in pack with 1-5 and the spinoffs.
Recently completed or fulfilled -
Plastic Farm - I know nothing about it, it looked cool
Trekker Blood in the Wind - pretty much all in on anything Trekker. Up till recently I had my b/w original Dark Horse issues by my desk.
Red, White and Broke looked fun
Collectors , Love and Capes and Impossible Jones were good finds.
A bunch more but those are recent ones. Another 'genre' that appeals to me is physical copies (or PDF, depending on pricing) of webcomics I used to read.

I'm always looking for some new, interesting comics to check out.

Pricing for crowdfund comics is weird - there are some where PDF copies are 50% or more of the price of the physical, and others where the PDF version is only 5 or 10 bucks. I'll try many things for 5 or 10 bucks, and if the PDF is 60% or more of the physical price, I'll usually go for physical, especially if it comes with the PDF.

I hate to admit it, but I’m considering the Bad Idea Kickstarter.

Same here but I hate that they are pulling some bs with the tiers and capping them before their limit.

There's a documentary about Rocketeer creator Dave Stevens with a Kickstarter live. One of the rewards is a comic written by the film's screenwriters, Paul De Meo and Danny Billson, with art by Adam Hughes.
