Fund Me Friday: BOXES
A New Comic Magazine from ThirdBear Press
Coming to Kickstarter soon is BOXES - a new comic magazine by ThirdBear Press. Edited by Steven Ingram, who wrote the excellent Burn With Me, Old Man Grey and Holly.
ThirdBear Press are preparing to publish the first volume of BOXES, a new comic magazine that aims to showcase new short comics and articles from the most exciting and interesting creators in indie comics!
BOXES will be coming to Kickstarter in early June. Those interested can sign up on the kickstarter page to be notified just as soon as the project is live.
Launched in September last year by comic creator Steven Ingram (Holly, Old Man Grey, Burn With Me), ThirdBear Press has been bringing over international comics to make them available to readers in the UK without large shipping costs. These include books from Silver Sprocket, Bulgilhan Press & Glacier Bay Books among others available at thirdbearpress.com.
The plan at ThirdBear Press has always been to publish new works though, of which BOXES is the first. The aim is to continue BOXES as an on-going series with each volume having a mix of new and returning creators.
In this first volume there are comics from Beck Kubrick, Mark Brady, Stephen Goodall, Enrico Ariis, Sammy Ward, Mason Wilson, Christian Porter, Julie Campbell, Bob Turner, Steve Thompson and Steven Ingram as well as two articles from Alister Black and Bob Turner.
If you want to see some of the work from each of the creators, have a look at this twitter thread posted a few weeks ago on the ThirdBear Press page introducing all the contributors.
As mentioned above, anyone interested can sign up to be notified as soon as the kickstarter for BOXES launches in early June here.
I’ve had a chance to look at some of the preview pages of what you can expect, and some excellent-looking comics are in there. I am looking forward to reading more, as there are some excellent teases of what is coming. There are various styles inside, with different art types and stories being told - something to suit all comics fans.
On top of that, there is some interesting discussion on current and older comics which not only break things up well, but also add something different for fans to get into an think about themselves.
This looks like an excellent project to back on Kickstarter.
