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!

On Sunday May 13th in Brighton, Comic Pop Up, a new indie comics shop will be debuting in the Hanover Pub as part of Brighton Arts Festival. It’s a pop up shop, stocking some of the best indie and small press comics in the UK (including our very own The Pull List) and is the brainchild of Simon Rusell, who is looking to bring the world of indie and small press comics to a new audience. We caught up with him to find out all about it!

The new book from Leonie O’Moore, creator of Lord and Double Dead is another creepy slice of gothic horror. This time it’s set in a mysterious house inhabited by spiritual beings who look like animals, but who may not be as benevolent as the young girls who move into their late Aunt’s house first think. With a period setting and a classical art style, we caught up with Leonie to find out more the spooky world she has created from her feisty female leads! (Contains some mild spoilers!)

It’s been another bumper month for Kickstarters, and it wouldn’t be a crowd-funding extravaganza without the Aussie King of Kickstarter Ryan K Lindsay (Chum, Deer Editor and EIR). Instead of being another gritty crime drama, Ink Island is an all ages adventure starring his own kids that comes complete with a teaching pack for families and teachers.  So we decided to catch up with Ryan to find out the secrets of a good Kickstarter, why he’s aiming it at kids, as well as the mysteries of Ink Island.
