By Request Extra: Futurians Kickstarter Launched, Quickly Scrambles Past Its Initial Goal


Here. Dave Cockrum was an all-time mainstream comics character designer, best known for his work on the 1970s relaunch of the X-Men property and its affiliated characters. The Futurians was his creator-driven project of greatest import.

I wanted to mention this one in its own post because of the quick scramble past its initial goal and for Cockrum's story in general. The campaign is being coordinated by longtime family advocate Cliff Meth working with Cockrum's widow Paty. There is a host of supporting material surrounding this presentation of Cockrum's final work on that series.
