The new ComicScene UK magazine has launched a crowdfunder to get the magazine into over 600 shops across the UK on a monthly basis. They need to raise £5000 plus for the upfront cost to do this.
Declaration of interest – I’m one of the writers on the title and I helped get the title into Forbidden Planet stores, so I’m obviously a bit biased!
“The title also encourages improving literacy by comic reading for young children and young adults as well as identifying a variety of different comic genres to explore.
“The intention was to follow a subscription only model but buyers from specialist comic shops across the UK agreed to sell them earlier than expected,” he continues. “The magazine now needs your support to get into shops like WHSmith and make it more accessible to people, share information on classic and new comics and increase our potential profits for funding comic workshops. There is a fee for this and your help will meet this cost.”
