Middleman: The Crowd-Funded Franchise Resurrection

I am dear friends with mindways, and always fond of his occasional posts where he links to lots of stuff. But there are usually a bunch of interesting links in any given post, so I tend to stick them in a tab, and get back to them later.

So it was that I only today saw the link to the Indiegogo campaign to publish a new Middleman graphic novel. It's already successfully funded, but still working on the stretch goals, and there are only four days left, so now's the time to join in. If you're a fan of the Middleman, this looks like a hoot. (The new book is "The Pan-Universal Parental Reconciliation", and sounds like the Middleman answer to Star Trek's legendary "Visit to a Weird Planet".)

If you're not a fan -- well, Middleman takes way too long to explain, but you should check it out, since it is one of the all-time great pieces of silly science fiction. I was introduced to it at a marathon showing of the entire TV series, which is actually a fine way to spend a winter's day. (Hint, hint.)
