‘Strange Kid Comics Magazine’ Hits Kickstarter For A 24-Page Satanic Teddy Ruxpin Story

Strange Kid Comics on Kickstarter

I don’t want to get all “’80s/’90s Kid” on everybody, because God help me if I ever start speaking in BuzzFeed/Facebook status update phrases, but if you’re of a certain age there’s a pretty good chance that you have a lot of nostalgic affection for stuff like Teddy Ruxpin, Stretch Armstrong and those Troll dolls with the hair. If you do, you have of course wondered what would’ve happened if those toys were possessed by demonic spirits unleashed by the power of Heavy Metal.

Now, at last, you can find out. For their fourth printed issue, the Strange Kids Club website is putting out a Kickstarter-funded magazine featuring not only the art of MadBalls designer James Groman, but also a 24-page comic written by Benito Cereno.

 

 

Written by Cereno (an occasional ComicsAlliance contributor), the full-length Cassette Death comic will be drawn by a roster of artists featuring Glen Brogan, Aaron KloppChad WelchMichael Anderson and Avatar: The Last Airbender character designer Aaron Alexovich. Targeted straight towards the “Nostalgia Nerd” audience, it tells the story of what happens when two kids make the very ill-advised decision to modify their talking teddy bear with a cassette tape of brutal Satanic heavy metal, bringing their toys to life in a way that’s less Calvin and Hobbes and a little more Hellraiser.

The Kickstarter, with the noble goal of covering costs and making sure all the creators get paid, has currently met about half of its $6,000 goal, with PDFs of the magazine available at the $10 level, and printed copies at $15. Higher backing levels include toys and more. For more information, check out the Strange Kids Club website.
