A new Kickstarter project has now opened up. This might be of particular interest to fans of Osamu Tezuka.

Captain Ken Vol.1 + Vol.2 Kickstarter Project: Publish Osamu Tezuka’s Shonen “Captain Ken” Vol. 1 & 2
Captain Ken by Osamu Tezuka
Captain Ken takes place in the future, when Earth has already colonized Mars as the new frontier. The story opens up with a diary entry from a Martian recalling the history of how the Earthlings came to be the supreme rulers of Mars.
This savior is Captain Ken. He’s a mysterious, young gunslinger from Earth who travels to Mars with his trusty sidekick and gadget-horse, Arrow. Ken and his friends soon find themselves caught between the cross fires of the Martian and Earthlings as the tension between the two species escalates. It’s Tezuka’s epic adventure full of “thrilling mysteries, assassination plots, and interplanetary conspirators” that is sure to be a great addition to your manga collection.
There are 28 days to go, so there is still some time. For the goal to be reached though let others know about the Kickstarter project and share whichever way you possibly can.
