I wish I had the money to fund every Kickstarter project that came my way.  The latest that has captured my interest is Duster by Micah Wright.  The story is set during World War II in Texas, where a widow must protect her family from a plane load of escaped Nazis.

Duster takes place at the close of the European conflict in World War II, and tells the story of a war-widowed female crop-duster pilot who must defend her daughter and her neighbors against a planeload of escaping Nazis who have crashed in her small Texas town. The action-packed story examines women’s changing roles in American society during the war years, as well as surveying all the various way that tough, independent women could kill a bunch of rampaging Nazis with farming equipment.

“DUSTER is a gripping, compelling story. I love the characters. I love the set-up. The art gives it all a gritty, authentic look. And I’m completely, nail-bittingly, breath-holdingly on the edge of my seat — I only got to read through the end of Chapter 4, and I can’t freakin’ wait to see how it all works out. Action, suspense, humanity, drama, blood, love and heroics. Micah Ian Wright’s coming back to comics, and he and his partners are throwing one hell of a party. Don’t miss out on this terrific book.”

– Kurt Busiek (Astro City)

    So I guess Howard Chaykin just did the cover?
