The last time we saw Andy W Clift’s work on show was in the blood-soaked pages of Mike Garley’s Samurai Slasher, so were a little bit surprised when we heard his newest book was an all-ages sci-fi adventure about a father and daughter superhero family in space called Captain Cosmic. Released via the Comichaus app, we caught up with Andy to find more about his love of silver age comics and what inspired him to make an all ages family adventure. 

Writer Ryan K Lindsay is never one to rest on his laurels when it comes to story genres. Having brought the world ‘antler noir’ in Deer Editor, surf noir in Chum as well as psychedelic sci-fi and all ages adventure in Stain The Seas Scarlet and Ink Island respectively, he is now embracing the world of swords and sorcery with Eternal – a tale about an ass-kicking viking shield maiden called Vif that sees him team up with his old art buddy Eric Zawadzky from Headspace to create a truly unique and epic fantasy adventure. We catch up with Ryan to find out more about the wintery world of Eternal.

After coming a valiant 2nd in our 2016 Indie Comic of the Year chart, the team at Dead Canary Comics have kept a relatively low profile in 2017, but it turns out that’s because they’ve been working on a new sci-fi themed anthology called Adventures in Science. As they set themselves to blast off into this new futuristic world we catch up with Matt Fitch and Chris ‘C.S.’ Baker to find out more about this collection of ‘dreamy’ and ‘twisted’ stories.

One of our favourite discoveries at this year’s True Believers was The Show by Jed McPherson – who launched the first issue that weekend. This tale of a crazy reality show run by a drug addled TV exec was a really exciting find, but it also led to us discovering his amazing previous work like Deadbeat and Jacob. Keen to discover more about this exciting new talent we caught up with Jed to talk gonzo reality TV, crime noir and deadbeat dads.

What if Victorians encountered aliens, is the fantastic premise of Samuel George London’s new Kickstarter comic Milford Green. We were drawn in by this superb premise, as well as the beautiful concept artwork which we’d seen on social media, and so when we got a chance to catch up with Sam at this weekend’s True Believers Comic Festival we thought we would ask him some more information about this exciting upcoming story.

Packed full of monster mechs and ultraviolet mercenaries who hunt them down, Killtopia from Card Shark Comics is one of our most eagerly anticipated indie Kickstarters of 2018. It’s already doing gangbusters on the crowd-funding site, but we couldn’t resist catching up with writer Dave Cook to find out the secrets of this ultra-stylish dystopian world.

The first time we encountered Ken Reynolds Sliced Quarterly it was a digital only experimental comic that was looking to push the boundaries of what a comic could be. Two years on, and it has become a fixture of the independent scene and one of the most interesting and eclectic series going. As Ken launches a Kickstarter for the second printed volume of Sliced we talk to him about how the book has changed since that first issue and why the small press scene needs comics like Sliced Quarterly

So how does he manage to keep churning out so many great books? We find out if Matt has his own Faustian pact and why variety is so important for his creative ambitions!

We always love discovering a story about how comics can help people, as well as entertain, and so Little Heroes project really warmed our hearts on these cold January days.
