Issue 1 of BaadFood, a new Sci-Fi comic series looking at the interactions between a couple of Human-Standard twenty-somethings and the robots, AI, altered-humans and ageing in a near-future job market, is up on Kickstarter now. The project is looking for funds to print the first issue and complete the front and back covers.
The Kickstarter launched on Saturday the 22nd of April, lasts for 30 days, and has art from Angelo Dazo famous for Deadpool: Merc With A Mouth and Thunderbolts, colouring from Davi Correia (BSG: Starbuck), lettering from Ken Reynolds (Sliced Quarterly and Cognition) and writing from Nic Ho Chee.
It looks like Maker culture took off big-style this year, with a set of great digital synth kits out, and the new Roland Aira/System series looking lush. Take a look at a nice rundown of the top 10 digital units over at Attack Magazine :).
Sometime near the beginning of August the surprisingly versatile culture blog, Loose Lips, hooked me up with a screener of 808, the documentary from Arthur Baker, looking at the Roland TR-808. Full of unexpected talking heads and computer love, it is definitely worth checking out if you have the chance.
Here is a little steganographic review of 808 extracted from my neural noise.
