Once again, this site is thriving because of the generosity of its contributors who go out of their way to write articles and tutorials for free. If you have benefited from this site then please consider supporting Scott King in his Kickstarter project! He has almost raised enough money to hit his goal but still needs a little help.
Kickstart Holiday Wars by Scott King.
If you enjoyed Scott’s articles on writing comics then you might be interested in his “online class pledge option”.
In addition to Scott’s Kickstarter, you might have heard about Jake Parker’s Kickstarter project too. Jake was a guest on the Making Comics Podcast here.
Jake has already raised over $65,000 and he still has 7 days to go.
Making Comics Podcast Co-host, Daniel Lieske, has recently released the third chapter of his amazing online graphic novel called “The Wormworld Saga” which is just breathtaking. Check it out and donate to help support his efforts. If he can continue to support himself through this comic then he will be able to keep completing a new chapter every 3 to 4 months.
Tom Dell”Aringa, another contributor to this site, who also has a great webcomic called “Marooned“, recently announced a limited edition poster print. It will be available until this Friday (the 11th) for $28. Grab one while you can in his store here: http://www.maroonedcomic.com/order-the-poster/
And finally, there is a FREE student run digital comic magazine called INK that I was just introduced to. You can download it for free on your phone or iPad or computer. It’s full of great little comic samples and articles about independent comics today. Here is the press release if you want to grab a free copy!
INK, an entirely student-run digital comics magazine, is proud to present you with our Spring 2012 issue, now available online and on all iOS devices (iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch). The magazine has been designed for the new iPad’s high resolution Retina display, allowing the content within INK to come to life on the screen. Published by the cartooning students at the School of Visual Arts, INK has established itself as a place for emerging artists to showcase their work and connect with the SVA comics community at large.
The magazine has placed itself at the forefront of the comics industry by embracing digital publishing and new technologies. The current issue features a selection of work by SVA students and alumni, along with interviews with Christopher Hastings (Dr. McNinja), Drew Friedman (Any Similarity to Persons Living or Dead is Purely Coincidental), and an article focusing on WFMU’s Lowest Common Denominator magazine.
INK is completely free. It is available for iPad, iPhone, iPod touch on the iTunes App Store
as well as online as a PDF at www.sva-ink.com
