Avery Hill continue their run of unique and exciting comics for 2017 with Something City, the debut book from Ellice Weaver. This landscape orientated collection of short stories focuses on the interconnected lives of a group of people living in the titular city and features everything from hip young things, to prisoners in a minimum security prison to nudists! We catch up with Ellice to find out more about the inspiration behind the stories as well as how she created the unique and colourful look.

We first met Joseph Oliveira and read his ‘dark gem of a read’ Ghost Island at this year’s True Believers Comic Festival, where the book debuted and it has remained one of our favourite comics of the year so far. So with news that the second issue was about to hit Kickstarter we thought we should catch up with Joey and find out more about his world of ‘Jurassic Park with ghosts’ and his adventures with conventions and Kickstarter.

Last year was a banner year for cartoonist Matthew Dooley as he released his excellent collection Meanderings, but also scooped the prestigious Observer/Jonathan Cape/Comica Graphic Short Story prize as a result. The story that won him the prize was a tale about a tall milkman and is the centrepiece in his latest collection Practical Implications of Immortality, alongside sweary birds and auto-biographical stories that literally see him laid bare – so we decided to find out more about his unique world view.

JD Oliva’s New Orleans based flood drama, Deluge, has been a long time favourite of ours, and so we were excited to discover JD was bringing a completely new tale to Kickstarter, Red Sunrise, featuring vampires in feudal Japan. We catch up with JD and find out why his take on the world of the undead manages to reinvent the formula in ways we’ve never seen before, and why you should support it on Kickstarter here.

Christopher Sebela’s High Crimes was one of our favourite crime books of recent years, mixing criminality and mountain climbing in a truly unique digital-first package (and ended up bagging a well deserved Eisner nomination). So, when we heard he was heading back to the crime genre, and to Kickstarter, with a new book entitled Short Order Crooks all about crooks and cooking, we knew we had to drop him a line and put in an order!

Having started a successful indie comics website selling platform, and launched a critically acclaimed anthology, we couldn’t help but wonder what Pete Genepool and the Comichaus guys would get up to next? Well it turns out they are branching into the world of digital comics, to launch a streaming service they are dubbing ‘a Netflix for indie comics’. With it’s mix of indie and digital comics being right up our alley, we knew we had to find out more!

Pirates, highwaymen and clockwork soldiers, set in the 18th century – it’s a pretty unique premise for an indie book and it’s why Steve Tanner’s Flintlock is one of the most interesting reads on the small press scene. Keen to find out why he set his book in the 1700s and the merits of a great female lead, we caught up with Steve to find out more.

It’s been two years since PJ Montgomery and Gavin Mitchell Kickstarted their adaptation of Steve Jackson’s fantasy novel The Trolltooth Wars, and it’s finally about to see the light of day! So where’s it been and what was the hold up? We catch up with PJ and Gavin to discuss one of the most anticipated indie books of the year and find out if it was worth the wait?! (Stay tuned for our full review tomorrow!)

Small press sensation Rozi Hathaway is making quite the name for herself on the indie scene with her beautiful, through-provoking, poetic style. With a  dreamy mix of painted artwork and minimalist story-telling, her latest book Cosmos And Other Stories was launched at Leamington Comic Con to critical acclaim, so we caught up with Rozi to find out more about what inspires her highly personal style of comic.

A cherubic angel takes care of various supernatural charaters in Prague in the upber webcomic The Sorrowful Putto of Prague. Recently described by Samuel L Jackson as ‘dope ass’ we caught up with writer James Stafford to find out more about his angelic hero and his celebrity endorsement!
