October 21, 2018: Crowdfunding Focus: The Tao Of Igor

[Image]Before there was Munchkin . . . before there was Chez Geek . . . there was Dork Tower.

John Kovalic's Dork Tower comic was featured in all the top gaming magazines of the day (where "top" is defined to mean "carries Dork Tower," obviously), starting 20 years ago in 1998. Shortly after its debut, John started compiling those strips into comic-book format . . . and then writing longer stories specifically for the comic . . . and then telling an ongoing story, leading up to an epic conclusion at the gaming convention in Mud Bay, Wisconsin . . . a conclusion we never got, because it turns out that self-publishing a monthly comic book is hard, y'all, and John suddenly found himself very busy with other projects.

John has now taken to Kickstarter to crowdfund the first new Dork Tower collection in a decade, The Tao of Igor – and, in doing so, to resolve all those unanswered questions hanging over Igor and Ken, Carson and Kayleigh, and (most especially) Matt and Gilly. In Mud Bay, no one can hide for very long, and in The Tao of Igor, all secrets will finally be revealed.

All the secrets except for the ones John is saving for the next collection, obviously. He didn't get to be a 20-year veteran of comic writing by being stupid.
