Hyper-Visual Psychedelic Refurb Of Kraig Rasmussen’s Science Fiction Anthology ‘Odds & Ends’ Hits Zoop

by Brendan M. Allen

Compiled from over a decade of experimental science fiction comics, film & TV pitch comics, and unseen personal works, Odds & Ends Vol. 1 & 2 from Kraig Rasmussen and Monkeygong is now live on Zoop.

Designed and edited as a record of artistic growth, Odds & Ends collects newly remastered works with fresh inks, new colors and even redrawn pages. Rasmussen means to unify past and present work for a robust and visually explosive short story reading experience—equal parts retrospective and all new art experience.

The books include 20 deftly crafted sci-fi stories featuring original works written by Rasmussen, director and producer Scott Rickels, Jason McNamara, and Jeff Chon, and two adaptations with a twist, including Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll and Siddartha by Herman Hesse; all with art by Rasmussen.

“As a creator, I’m very excited about the Odds & Ends collection, because it is a quintessential road map to how I got where I am creatively, and a strong representation of where I’d like to go from here,” said Kraig Rasmussen. “By taking the time to flesh out and polish every concept, I’m honoring that path, and finally conveying the true depth of my ideas and intentions. These books are a great jumping off point for my upcoming slate, all arriving under my label Monkeygong, where the library of my work already feels more rich, diverse, and complete, but, on top of it all, as was my original intention, I’m very proud to be making two big, beautiful books of comics!”

Backer rewards kick in at the $20 level, for digital copies of the books. Physical copies are available at the $50 tier, for soft cover copies. Signatures on those paperbacks will cost you ten bucks more. Various bundles including other Monkeygong books, sketches, and art prints are available at higher levels, all the way up to the $2,000 big daddy package, The Super Fan Bundle.
