Join the Kickstarter
For anyone who has ever wanted to work in the comic industry pay attention to Subversive comics. In just a few years they have become one of the biggest indie publishers in the UK and already received attention from the film production world just from bringing their own ideas to life.
One of their comics Metal Made Flesh had a massive success with its first Kickstarter when they aimed for raising £3000 but ended up closer to £15,000. This time they have come back with a whole new fully sequential art three issue series called Metal Made Flesh Blood and Oil. The target is at £25,000 (roughly $40,000) and after just a few hours into the 30 day fund raiser they have raised over £2500.
The latest Kickstarter has a whole range of pretty awesome incentives to join including getting your name mentioned in the book and even drawn into one of the pages itself. Which considering the success of the first book could be something that will tempt a lot of people as they are going to be in print for a long time and you can be part of comic history.
Take a look at the Kickstarter for Metal Made Flesh : Blood and Oil.
