The77 #2 is now on general release, available now from GetMyComics. But, not ones to stand on ceremony, the team behind the ace new UK-based comic anthology are already ramping up to launch their Kickstarter to fund #3!

Don’t be late to back it when it does launch this Friday, either – as the previous Kickstarters were funded within hours and many of the rewards were snapped up in minutes.

Follow the Kickstarter, which ends 6th September 2020, by using this link to receive a notification. Strips lined up include work from 2000AD strip creators and some ace independents, including Conor Boyle, Phil Elliott, Bambos Georgiou, Kek-W, Ben Macleod, Sarah ‘Milmo’ Millman, Michael Powell, Neil Sims, Lew Stringer, David Thomas, Paul Williams and Dan Whitehead.

And the good news is, the release schedule is being ramped up, too, thanks to the title’s huge support from comics fans, #4 will be released mid October.
