“1956 Movie Star” graphic novel is Live at Kickstarter

October 11, 2021

I’ve launched 1956 Movie Star, my new graphic novella.

The story builds on last year’s 1956 Book One narrative—Enter Ramona Lopez and Nikki Garcia, brimming with talent and intent to quit the streets. The two young women are keen to embrace their cultural ambitions. Can Nikki get her novel published? Will Ramona break through to a modeling career?

And of course, here’s Jack Rolfe and Susie Ferrari vying for the promotion to “Chief Buyer” at the McCurdy’s chain of department stores. Can these fashion industry avatars help Ramona & Nikki? More to the point, can Jack and Susie resist jumping into bed together?

I’ve launched a Kickstarter project for 1956 Movie Star to underwrite the publication of the book. Go ahead and reserve your copy for November shipping at the Kickstarter link.

IN addition to the new book, you can build out your order with a selection of Cat Head Comics back catalog titles:

1956 Book One: Sweet Sweet Little Ramona

Forty Hour Man (with writer Stephen Beaurpe/art by Steve Lafler)

The Complete BugHouse

The Complete Dog Boy

Additionally, I’m offering an option to score an original brush & ink drawing on the “1956” theme along with your copy of 1956 Movie Star. I’ve done a deep dive into period research with this book, and I’m super pumped to produce art pieces that capture the mid-century Manhattan zeitgeist in a classic cartoon style.

At the top reward tier, I’m making a limited number of acrylic paintings are available. Visualize a Dog Boy, BugHouse or 1956 themed painting in the rec room, formal dining room, cubicle or Tiki Hut!

1956 Movie Star represents a new stylistic twist in my cartoon work and I’m thrilled to make it available to you.

I greatly appreciate your interest in my comic art works, and sincerely thank you for your support.

Warm regards,

Steve Lafler
