Writer and UCR alumnus Gabe Cheng is self-publishing his first webcomic called, “For Molly” with art by Benjamin Sawyer. The Kickstarter campaign for chapter two (http://kck.st/2yCvzYS) began on Monday October 29th and ends Friday November 23rd.
Cheng graduated from UCR with a BA in Film and Visual Culture in 2008. “Some of the smartest and most hard-working people I know were my classmates at UCR,” said Cheng. “I learned so much about storytelling and writing from all of my film professors, and I’m honestly jealous because I know the program’s only gotten better since I graduated.”
Chapter one of “For Molly” can be read for free at formollycomic.com. In it, an anti-social talking dog named Molly helps a recently divorced New Yorker named Greg rescue his sister from an evil that lurks in the New Jersey forest.
