1. It’s no secret that Kickstarter and the comics industry have enjoyed a fruitful, wonderfully organic relationship. Graphic novels, anthologies, individual issues, and a whole lot more are brought to life by veteran creators and new ones alike. Looking through the comics section of Kickstarter, it feels like its own rapidly expanding universe of artistic dreams brought to life. This week, a few of the Kickstarter staff will be attending the New York Comic-Con along with a number of creators that have used the platform to turn the projects from their brains into reality. Here’s what’s going on.

    Above, a quick timelapse video of me inking page 3 of my new mini-comic, posted as an update to my current Kickstarter project in progress.

    The project ends shortly — Friday, September 26 at 1:30pm (NY time). Still a few pages of original art yet, and any pledge gets you a download of the finished comic. Go on, have a look, why don’t you?

    Thanks!

    Watch our own J.Tan ink a page!

    Back to the Stone Age

    Here it is, the complete story that is my contribution to the latest Cloudscape Comics anthology, MEGA FAUNA. MEGA FAUNA is a 200+ page full-colour book of awesome all-ages comics with stories about pets, wild animals, and monsters galore. I’m really happy this book is nearly ready to go to press. Comics for kids is something I want to do a whole lot more of, and my only regret is that I didn’t have time to do more than five pages while MEGA FAUNA was in production (I was busy teaching kindergarten at the time). So I packed as much awesome into those five pages as I possibly could!

    MEGA FAUNA is up on Kickstarter right now. You should check it out! There are so many good comics crammed into this book!

  4. Project of the Day—Way back in the year 1900 before any of us were born (if are reading this and were born then: congratulations!) E. Nesbit wrote the now classic The Book of Dragons. Its influence was long lasting enough that now, waaaaayyyyy after the book’s original publication, a whole host of artists have adapted it into a diverse collection of comic stories.
