Pryor, Thompson and Reed Bring 'F.O.R.C.E.' to Kickstarter
For his newest Kickstarter, Cash & Carrie creator Shawn Pryor has assembled quite the team. F.O.R.C.E. brings him together with writer B. Alex Thompson and artist Jay Reed for a new sports comic set in the world of American Football, and follows the flagging career of veteran player Terrance Wright, a starting quarterback looking to lead his team out for one last big game. But the world of football is a political one, and if he's to achieve his dreams then he's going to have to overcome a whole mess of problems both on and off the field. The Kickstarter is running now, seeking a funding target of $4,000 to print the first issue; any additional funds will go towards further issues. Sports remains a relatively uncommon subject for Western comics, so Back Pages spoke to the whole team about how this came together, and what readers could expect from the series.
