The highly anticipated graphic novel Tephlon Funk! launched its Kickstarter campaign just one day ago and the numbers are in. The hip hop meets anime fusion, influenced by notable Japanese animators such as Akira Toriyama and Hayao Miyazaki as well as New York’s illustrious lyricist Nas, has raised over $2,500 in just 24 hours.
42 backers have contributed through the crowdfunding platform so far pushing the project to 17% of its $15,000 goal. With 28 days left to go, it’s looking very promising that Tephlon Funk! will not only meet but exceed its target. Of course, it’s too early to tell for sure, but I’ll be anxiously following the campaign to watch #TeamTephlon in action.
