Kickstarter for Nix Comics Quarterly #8, Independents Day & CXC

Spread the love


Pledge for your copy of Nix Comics Quarterly #8 on Kickstarter!

Nix Comics Quarterly (NCQ) #8 will be the fourth full-length publication released by Nix Comics in 2015.  Funds are tight due to some unexpected expenses with the last Nix Release: “Jim Shepard, Negotiate Nothing.”  As it stands, I’ll have just enough to pay the artists involved and enough to print copies to mail to my 2014-15 subscribers, but not enough to have extra copies for shows, stores, and my website.  I am asking you to pre-order your copy of the newest book at a discount using this Kickstarter, maybe buy some great original or catch up on some back issues you missed out on!

As with all crowdfunders, its success is predicated on getting word out.  Please help out by sharing the link on social media and/or forwarding this email to someone who might be interested in checking out Nix Comics.  (Thanks!)

IDaCartoon Crossroads Columbus
If you have been looking for an excuse to visit Columbus, this is it an if you’re a proud C_bus resident, this is the thing you should be crowing about.  The inaugural Cartoon Crossroads Columbus (CXC) is scheduled for October 1-4 and I’m honored to be a small part of it as an exhibitor.  (Seriously… honored… take a look at the guest list and exhibitor list. I can’t believe my little-publications-that-could are going to be at the same show as these folks!)

CXC is a city-wide festival that includes workshops, presentations and exhibitions at multiple locations over the course of four days.  Most all of the events are free, although some have a minimal ticket price.

I’m going to take part in as many of the events at the festival as possible. You will for-sure catch me at the Saturday 11:00am-6:00pm, October 3rd exhibition at the downtown Cultural Arts Center.
