Way back in the dark days of 2007, when my own blog/website was not something I could ever imagine having (not least because I wasn’t confident enough in my writing to go for it), I briefly wrote an indie comic book review column for a now defunct website. It was very short lived, mostly because a few life issues got in the way, but also because of that aforementioned lack of confidence in my abilities.
In any case, I was sent a couple of indie comics to review by some very talented creators – I took a look at some very interesting stuff in the short space of time that I wrote the column for. The best of the bunch, however, was a very Manga-influenced comic called Paradigm Shift, by Dirk I. Tiede. It was an intriguing, fun and action packed story; one that adds werewolves to a cop thriller. The artwork was phenomenal too.
Imagine my surprise when I Googled Paradigm Shift to see if I could find any information on the series continuing – and discovered that there’s not only been more added to the story since I last checked it out, but there’s also a Kickstarter running for some wonderful editions of the entire series so far – right now!
I’m incredibly pleased to see how successful the campaign has been so far too. At just over 300% of the original funding goal, it’s very clear that there’s a lot of people as keen as myself to check out Paradigm Shift and perhaps get their hands on some incredible, very limited artwork in the process.
If you have even the slightest interest in Manga, comic books, werewolves or police buddy thrillers, go check out the Kickstarter campaign and lend your support. It’s well on the way to the stretch goal that’ll see an entirely new Paradigm Shift volume coming our way a lot faster than it otherwise would – and I, for one, am very excited to see that come to fruition.
