The Nottingham Comic Con Anthology, titled Forest Tales, will be an all ages, limited edition A5 print comic running to at least 52 pages that already features 18 unique creations, with still more on their way.
“This Kickstarter is purely for the printing of the book, which is limited in number,” says Kev Brett, who runs Nottingham Comic Con along with his wife Kel.
“This Kickstarter has only 150 printed pledges available (but unlimited digital versions). 50 copies will be given to the contributors and the remaining 100 printed books will be available at Nottingham Comic Con on 29th October 2016.”
Contributors so far include Nich Angel, Dean Beattie (who’s provided the anthology’s cover), Beano cartoonist Steve Beckett, our very own Tony Esmond and Emily Owen, Katie Fleming, Planet of the Apes artist Marc Laming, Muppets artist Roger Langridge, Sally Jane Thompson and many more.
“The comic is 90 per cent complete and the problems we may have would be delays in printing,” Kev acknowledges. “However, we feel confident we can hit the deadline and have the comic ready in time for Nottingham Comic Con 29th October.”
