One of our highlights from the recent Leamington Comic Con, was news of a new book from Wired Up Wrong‘s Rachael Smith called Isabella and Blodwen. As long time fans of her work, stretching back to the early days of House Party, we were super excited and even more intrigued to learn that not only would it be packed full of the beautiful art and pithy wit which we have come to love with her work, but also that she was embracing a new publishing platform, with crowd funding site Unbound. We caught up with Rachael to find out more about the conflicting worlds of ancient witches and contemporary funding platforms! (Which is much more interesting than it sounds!)

We discovered the wonderful world of Jenny Clements’ webcomic Mias and Elle back at True Believers in February, and we were instantly drawn in by it’s bickering lead characters – the goody two shoes Elle and the despicably rogue-ish Mias who kidnaps her and takes her on an incredible journey. To find out more we caught up with writer/artist Jenny Clements to explore this magical world and the relationship between her two argumentative leads!

Scottish small press superstars, Fraser Campbell and Iain Laurie are set to blow people’s mind with their new collaboration – The Edge Off, which is now funding on Kickstarter. It reads like the bastard lovechild of William Burroughs and Shaky Kane, brought up on a diet of Charles Bronson movies, and is a surreal, psychedelic crime thriller, that could only come from the twisted minds of these unique talents. We caught up with writer Fraser Campbell to find out what the hell The Edge Off is all about and what it’s like working with such a unique artist!

After discovering the vintage sci-fi brilliance of Gateway City at this year’s True Believers, we were even more ecstatic to discover artist Russell Mark Olson has also been turning his hand to the 80s LA noir of Cult Empire’s new series Lady Hollywood.

It takes a lot to stand out from the crowd in the world of indie horror comics, but one artist who is really starting to make waves for himself is Lyndon White.

We catch up with Nick to find out why he is braving Kickstarter all of a sudden as well as discuss the development of his retro style through the plehtora of projects he’s been working on in the past year.

Luke James Halsall and Cuttlefish’s hilarious time-travel comic Out Of Time appeared to us out of nowhere at the tail end of last year, but with it only being available at Thought Bubble we’ve not been able to shout about it – until now that is. With a digital (and upcoming print) release from the fine folk at Markosia bringing the world of Redmond, Lizzie, NC-1000 and co to the wider world, we caught up with Luke and Cuttlefish so we could reorder the time stream, discover more about this terrific time-travel tale, and generally make out like we knew how great it was all along!
