Comics Alternative Kickstarter: Slang Pictorial

Beehives and Quiffs

On this week’s Kickstarter show, Derek talks with Nick Prolix about his campaign for Slang Pictorial #3. This will be a 24-page black-and-white comic, following up on on the already published first two hardcopy issues. Nick is using his first-ever Kickstarter in order to cover the comic’s printing and shipping. Plus, he has a really cool promotional video:

Slang Pictorial is Nick’s one-person anthology comic, and it includes his serialized retro comedy-drama The Sheep And The Wolves. This story actually began as a webcomic, and it’s a light-hearted look at the broken dreams and busted schemes of the many residents of a fictional London neighborhood at the start of the Swinging Sixties. Slang Pictorial also includes an assortment of other stories set in the same world.

Backers can also get reprints of the first two issues of the anthology, and there are exclusive prints and art cards, as well. If you’re a fan of PalookavilleEightball, and Optic Nerve, then this is definitely a comic for you. Be sure to back Nick’s Slang Pictorial!

Comics Alternative Kickstarter: The Middle Age

Questing Has Never Been So Wacky

This week Derek talks with Steve Conley about his Kickstarter campaign The Middle Age, based on his Eisner Award-nominated webcomic and offering both enamel pins and print versions of his comic.

Sean and Derek discussed The Middle Age on their webcomics series last year. It’s an old-school and fun kind of adventure comic, a fantasy featuring a slightly older knight, Sir Quimp, who lost his love, his sword, and his job. And he is on a quest to win them all back, and “aiding” Sir Quimp on his quest is a talking sword, Maledicta, which hates him. Steve’s Kickstarter campaign is centered on a limited edition enamel pin set based on the characters in his webcomic, as well as print editions of The Middle Age. It’s part of Kickstarter’s Make/100 initiative.

This campaign ends on January 31, so don’t miss out! Back this Kickstarter now!

Wayne’s Comics Podcast #224 With Nadja Baer And Nathan Lueth

Wayne Hall, Wayne’s Comics, Ruben Romero, Richard Rivera, Bob Salley, Three Swords, Kickstarter, Salvagers, Think Alike Productions, Stabbity Bunny, Three Musketeers, Alexandre Dumas, George R.R. Martin, Game of Thrones, Athos, Porthos, Aramis.

I first discovered Impure Blood and Melting Down at this year’s C2E2, and after reading their great books, I knew I had to interview creators Nadja Baer and Nathan Lueth. They discuss how they’re bringing the Impure Blood series of graphic novels to fans everywhere, including how Nathan introduced Nadja to comics, how they work together as a team, and how they put these books together, including using laying out the pages in landscape format instead of the usual portrait mode comics often appear in. This series is also a webcomic, with a new page appearing every Monday. We also talk about Melting Down, which is described as “a comic for kids with Asperger’s Disorder and challenging behavior,” a comic I found both riveting and educational.

To check out Impure Blood online, you can visit their website at this link. To buy these books, you can also go to this link at for Volume 1, here for Volume 2, and this location for Volume 3.  Volume 4 is due Winter 2017.Melting Down can be found here on Amazon as well.  You can also purchase their comics through the avenues listed in this episode. Highly recommended!
