Kickstarter News: Tom Ward & Chris Welsh’s Doc Dino
“Dr Tyrannosaurus Rexley is the world’s greatest surgeon, on paper. An epic tale of emotions, friendship, betrayal, lost love & courage.”
There’s a new campaign on kickstarter this week, a rather different comic featuring the indie writers Tom ‘Merrick’ Ward and Chris ‘Warty’ Welsh. Both gentlemen are no strangers to kickstarter, having had previous crowdfunding successes with Merrick: the Sensational Elephantman and Treves: A Restless Night – both by Tom Ward, while Chris Welsh has seen success with three campaigns for his cult Lovecraftian tale: Wart
Doc Dino is quite a departure in terms of material from the Victorian splendour of Ward’s Merrick, while the Lovecraft inspired Wart definitely has a vibe equally removed from the Doc. The creative team involved, along with the Kickstarter pedigree of both writers, should mean for an interesting campaign and, with luck, a good read at the end of the campaign.
