Back in January we reviewed the brilliant Norwegian anthology Outre Press. The stand out title in their second instalment was Brett Uren’s Torso Bear which was a crime noir featuring teddy bears and kids toys in the lead roles. We described is as ‘Like Raymond Chandler meets Teddy Ruxpin with a generous dose of Robert Crumb” and that we’d love to see a full series of it. Well hopefully that is about to happen as Brett has started a Kickstarter for a full Torsobear anthology called ‘Yarns From Toyburg’ and we hope you can help support it and make it happen.

Warhawks 1 coverThere’s a huge number of reasons why people creates comics: artistic expression; a lifelong passion; the desire for fame and adoration; or just good old fashioned cash! However for Doug Cohen and the team behind new ComiXology Submit series Jason Coffee’s Warhawks, their motivations were much more altruistic as they launched the title in memory of their late friend bringing to life characters from an unpublished screenplay.

It’s a fantastic story so we contacted Doug to find out more about their amazing journey from devastated friends to aspiring comic book creators.
