This July sees the first ever Comics Summit, a chance for indie and small press comic creators to share their knowledge and experience with each other, without the stresses of also having to man a comic convention table and make sales! The brainchild of Big Punch Studios’ Jon Lock, we caught him on a rare moment between marketing, making videos and re-organising venues to find out more about what The Comics Summit is all about.

From the opening scenes involving a row over a cup of tea in the workplace, you can’t help but be drawn into Joe Palmer’s scintilating sci-fi one shot Grind. The workplace banter is instantly familliar, but the world it is set in is one of a kind and it’s this perfect combination of the fresh and the familliar which make Grind such a fantastic read.

The new issue of indie comics fanzine The Pull List is out now for just £0.99 from our digital store! 

This issue we look at the world of crowd-funding with our Kickstarter Secrets special! Kickstarter has become an essential part of the indie comics scene, so to find out more about how our favourite creators make the most of the crowd-funding platform we talk to a panel of experts to find out their essential secrets.

We also talk to Aussie King of Kickstarter Ryan K Lindsay about his new all-ages book Ink Island, Chris Baldie about his moustachioed hero Space Captain, and Tom Ward about the gothic world of Merrick: The Sensational Elephantman.

We also have reviews of the best new indie and small press comics, previews of up and coming titles in our gallery, and show reports from True Believers and Leamington Comic Convention.
