Backer Beware: Crowdfunding projects are not guaranteed to be delivered and/or delivered when promised. We always recommend to do your research before backing.


Craig Yoe is teaming up with Clover Press for his next project as a cartoonist: the first-ever publication of Woman & Man+, a wildly surreal autobiographical comic which is being crowdfunded on Kickstarter. The graphic novel depicts the artist losing his love, his home country, and (some say) his sanity—and tells the story of his struggle to reinvent himself. The project is now live on Kickstarter.

Craig Yoe’s debut comic Sammy Saved and Al Most, published in the 1970’s, featured a cover colored by Yoe’s pal, Zap Comix’s Rick Griffin. Sammy Saved and Al Most was a spiritually infused contribution to the underground comix movement, one which garnered the young cartoonist some attention. But Yoe’s passion for drawing comics was sidetracked for over a half a century by his career as a creative director for Jim Henson and the Muppets, Disney, Nickelodeon, and MTV and producing books about comics history with the award-winning Yoe Books.

Yoe’s passionate cult of fans have called his visual diary/underground comix “bizarre,” “beautiful,” “transgressive,” “‘like nothing else,” “subversive,” “beyond weird” and “degenerate—in a good way!” Now, more than fifty years after Sammy Saved and Al Most was found at hippy headshops, Yoe’s eagerly awaited second comic Woman & Man+ dives deep into sex, horror, and drama, with a hint of humor and a whiff of hope.

Woman & Man+ runs until Friday, April 5 at 4:00 AM UTC.
