Those shy and retiring chaps from Madius Comics are back with a new Kickstarter, collecting together the first 7 issues of their 6-part anthology Papercuts and Inkstains. So what can we expect in the collection of their superb anthology? Well, funny you should ask as writer Rob Jones and Mike Sambrook are always up for a chat and once we got them started it was tough to get them to stop as they give us the lowdown on everything we wanted to know about the world of Madius Comics! (And a few things we didn’t!)
With their anthology series Papercuts and Inkstains going from strength to strength, Madius Comics has decided to add another single story adventure to their stable with Griff Gristle – an elderly sailor with a very supernatural occupation/hobby. However, will this be yet another success for the publisher or will this title sink to the bottom of the sea of small press comics?
One of the more shy and retiring groups of comic creators on the UK independent scene right now are Robin Jones and Mike Sambrook from Madius Comics – home to Papercuts and Inkstains and the Profits of Doom. Not ones to shout about their new books all over social or constantly mention their up coming Kickstarter Griff Gristle, we thought we should give these timid young chaps the opportunity to tell the world about their fine array of comics!
If last week’s Kickstarter of the Week, Ness should be oozing stagnant water, then this week’s offering should reek of sea salt and be covered in barnacles. Madius Comics’ latest offering, and their first Kickstarter, is a nautical action adventure with spectacular supernatural undertones and stars a salty old seadog called Griff Gristle. With superb Mignola inspired artwork from Rory Donald, and a fantastic script from Madius’ main men Rob Jones and Mike Sambrook, this looks set to be their most complete book yet and an essential read for any fans of the producers of Papercuts and Inkstains.
