Kovalic launches Kickstarter

Long before he was a popular web cartoonist (and go-to illustrator for numerous game companies), John Kovalic was an editorial cartoonist at a daily newspaper. He was an integral part of the AAEC in the 1990s and helped them get online during the early days of the internet, and was the publisher of "Attack of the Political Cartoonists" in 2004. For the past 20 years he has been creating the popular comic strip "Dork Tower," with his unique take on geek culture, pop culture and, yes, occasionally politics.

Kovalic recently kicked off a Kickstarter to underwrite a collection of the last 10 years of Dork Tower. Considering the campaign was already halfway to its goal three hours after launch, there's no doubt the book will see print. If you'd like to get your copy, click here:
