Sup all, Ambush Bug back again with another load of previews, but before we do that I have a word from friend of the Holes, Andrew G regarding a project he’s been working on. Take it away Andrew.Most of you probably have no idea who the heck I am so why on Earth am I coming to AICN, hat in hand, to ask you to help me out? I’ll do my best to explain.
I’ve always wanted to write and publish comics. And even more than wanting to write and publish comics for the Big Two or Big Five was a desire to write and publish my own comics and help other people like me do the same. I’m finally almost in a position to do that.
With the help of talented friends made across the internet community I’m ready to launch the first issue of The Gathering. Volume 1: The Thing with Feathers is a 32 page black and white anthology with the central theme of ‘Hope’ in all its stories. There’s the story of the baseball player yearning to make contact with the ball in his final at bat, a family man facing a cancer scare and a couple of super hero stories in there as well. A few of the contributors have had their work published before but for the most part this is a project done but creative people who’ve never had the resources to do this before and I am extremely happy to give them the opportunity to do so with this book.
But a funny thing happened on the way to making The Gathering. I had ideas for me. And as new teams were assembled for the beginnings of a second volume, more ideas began to present themselves. What about doing longer form stories: Seven pages? Sixteen pages? Full length comics? The potential was there and there are more than enough talented folks out there with ideas to share who want to help contribute to the book.
The problem is I’m not made of money, contrary to what my kids may believe. While the first issue was completely financed by myself (and at the printers as of this post) I don’t have the ability to have two or three different books ready to go at a moment’s notice. The solution to this is a great sight called Kickstarter which allows creative people to post their ideas and allow people to pledge to help fund the project of their choice.
Our goal is to raise 2500 dollars by the end of July. It’s a lot of money but not an impossible goal. And yeah it does seem strange to be asking complete strangers to donate money in a tough economy to something that isn’t going to change the world but I do believe in this project and the creators involved with it.
I want to be able to create something where new talent can come and tell a story if they want to without having to figure out how to self publish on their own or trying to pitch to a major company. I think we’ve done that with this first anthology and I’m certainly excited about the potential for the future, which is why the Kickstarter campaign is so important.
So if you have a few extra dollars to spare and want to help support an up and coming comic line intent on giving new creators a place to shine, please head on over to the link and make a pledge. We also have a few rewards available there for those that do.
If interested, follow the link.

Hey all, Ambush Bug here with another clickable delight from the wide and wild world of webcomics. This week’s webcomic du jour is MAN-MACHINE which looks to be a pretty sweet sci fi epic with tons of robots and some pretty fantastic art. It’s described as an attempt at serious science fiction incorporating geopolitics and artificial intelligence. Follow the link and check out what I’m squawking about.

I HATED coming onto this page, knowing it would most likely lock up my Internet connection because of the number of pictures that had to load. This works perfectly.

Bow DOWN! ...I'm looking forward to reading Neverland #3 as well.

...something like that Fraggle Rock book and think the movie needs to be more "edgy". I mean, shit, I still don't know what the hell "edgy" is in relation to Fraggles. But I'll tell you what. If they gave me an animated (cgi or traditional) OR live action with puppets movie that looked as cool as that comic book, I'd be there in a second.
