Yes, it's real. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/gregpak/code-monkey-save-world Found out about this in an email I got from the JoCo website. I'm neutral on graphic novels, and I like Jonathan Coulton songs a lot, so this sounds great to me. The best news: It's already well above the goal. $100,000 above the goal infact. Pretty much all the money donated from now on just goes to show how much you like Jonathan Coulton's music.
