While DC Reprints Mike Baron's 'The Flash,' He's Bringing Back 'Funny-Books'
After the Superhero Tales, This Eisner-Winner Takes 'Florida Man' to Kickstarter

"Comic readers are hungry for more than superheroes,"
Baron recently adapted his comedy novel Florida Man into a comic format and found great success through crowdfunding. Comic fans worldwide backed it on Indiegogo. And after that massive success, he decided to take it to Kickstarter to reach an entirely different audience.
"I couldn't believe how quickly we hit our crowdfund goal for a Nexus novel on Kickstarter!"
Baron also recently crowdfunded a prose novel for his Nexus character recently, which went on to raise three times its fundraising goal. Likewise, his Indiegogo campaign for Florida Man tripled its goal in less than ten days. The "funny book," as he calls it, pulls inspiration from his novel, which tells the misadventures of a Florida native and his gal in a hilarious rags to riches story. The project is completely funded and currently in production. During the campaign, Baron was besieged with requests to offer it on Kickstarter, so that EVERYONE could take part. And he decided to do so with some unique options.
"Some people simply refuse to use Indiegogo, but they love Kickstarter, and vice versa." Mike added, "It made sense to offer it on both since this comicbook is made for EVERYBODY. No superheroes, no politics, just timeless humor designed to make people laugh. I swear it's the funniest thing I've ever written!"
Florida Man the Graphic Novel is a 64-page prestige bound graphic novel with artwork by Todd Mulrooney. Readers will likely recall many of the hilarious and bizarre stories they've seen in the news and 'Florida Man' internet memes in this tale squarely aimed at grown-ups who still love comics. Baron is bringing back "funny books" with the quintessential "Florida Man" in all his outrageous glory straight from "the most magical and bizarre state in America." The Kickstarter campaign launches today.
