The Indie Cool List 2018 – in the latest issue of our indie comics magazine and small press fanzine, we celebrate 5 of the coolest indie creators in the world right now. They include: Kim Reaper’s Sarah Graley; Gateway City creator Russell Mark Olson; the creator of webcomic Mias and Elle, Jenny Clements; the brilliantly bonkers Todd Oliver; and Slang Pictorial’s Nick Prolix, who is also responsible for our awesome Stranski inspired cover.

With books like Our Super Adventure, Pizza Witch and Kim Reaper, writer/artist Sarah Graley has become one of the rising stars of the UK scene and a regular at conventions all over the world. With recent announcements that Oni Press will be republishing Our Super Adventure, along with a new Kim Reaper comic called Vampire Island, we caught up with Sarah to find out about what inspires her and the secret to a good diary comic! 

A glorious venue, a beautiful sunny day and a great selection of comics to check out – you couldn’t have asked for a better set of circumstances for the fourth Leamington Comic Con. Our roving reporter Alex Thomas heads up the M5 for weekend of small press comics in a truly unique setting.
