Nottingham Comic Con has launched a Kickstarter for its third anthology, Inter Space, a 40 plus page all ages comic conglomeration featuring stories from some great creators, many of them at the event on Saturday 20th October.
This book has a great collection of comic book writers and artists from both the small press scene as well as industry professionals who have worked with the likes of Marvel, DC, Image, Vertigo, Aces High, The Phoenix and the Beano, among many others.
If you’ve backed past volumes, you’ll already know what a gem this annual anthology has become. This year’s title features contributions from Steve Beckett, Dave Broughton, The Etherington Brothers, Tony Esmond, Susie Gander, Dan Harris, Chris Imber, Jon Laight, James Lawrence, Mister Hope, Gavin Mitchell, Emily Owen, Tom Sparke – and many more.
This Kickstarter is purely for the printing of the book, which is limited in number. It will only ever have one print run, making them limited editions, available to backers and at Nottingham Comic Con on the 20th October.
I really enjoyed last year’s anthology and I’m definitely looking forward to seeing this latest volume.
Guests at this year’s NCC include Steve Beckett, The Etherington Brothers, Zac Simmonds Hurn, Marc Laming, NoBrow, Luke Pearson, Hamish Steele, Lew Stringer, Laura Trinder and Christian Wildgoose.
Print numbers are subject to change dependent on the success of this Kickstarter. Backers will be able to pick up the comic at Nottingham Comic Con on the Saturday 20th October 2018 (and they will post it to non-attendees). Any unsold copies will be sold at following events and online to raise further funds for charity.
