The Mammy by Eddie Campbell and Phil ElliotA new comic seeking funding on Kickstarter from Eddie Campbell and Phil Elliot has already hit its target, but you still have time to back The Mammy, a collection of comics from the music paper, Sounds.

This is a story about a loving parent, attempting to provide a caring home for her children in the face of a blunt bureaucratic state and an authority who do not understand the trials and tribulations of raising four vulnerable youngsters.
