Kickstarter is the new shop window for indie comic creators, with dozens of titles funded every week. But how do you get people to invest in the promise of your amazing new small press or indie comic? We talk to the UK scene’s Kickstarter experts to get their essential tips on how to fund an indie comic and run a winning campaign…

With so many great comics crowd funding on Kickstarter at the moment, we decided to bring back our regular look at some of the best and this week we shine a light on an old favourite, with a new volume – Ken Reynold’s excellent experimental anthology Sliced Quarterly volume 3. Collecting together issues #9-12 of this fantastic and innovative title, Ken describes it as “a playground for  creators to experiment with the comic book narrative” and that they do, creating some of the most original and eye catching comics we have seen anywhere. With this set to be the final volume of the series, be sure to get your support in for this one of a kind collection.

The latest book to come out of the Unbound publishing platform (joining Ram V’s Grafity’s Wall and Rachael Smith’s Isobel and Blodwen) sees Beast Wagon’s Owen Michael Johnson bring us Reel Love: The Complete Collection, a 3 volume semi-autobiographical tale about growing up as a film fan, collected into a glorious hardcover boxset. But will it be a blockbuster or an arthouse flop?

Having earned a just deserved second place in our recent rundown of the best small press and indie comics of the year 2018, we caught up with Wolf creator Rachael Ball to find out more about the personal influences on it contains and the inspirations for her emotional and complex tale of grief and childhood in the 1970s.

After reading recent anthology I Feel Machine, which was co-compiled by Krent Able, you’d think we would know what to expect from this collection of work from the cult artist. But nothing could adequately prepare us for the dark and twisted, anarchically hilarious strips in this new collection from Knockabout Comics.
