Kevin Jay Stanton and Annie Stoll Raise ‘1001 Knights’ on Kickstarter [Back Pages]

1001 knights

Crowdfunding has become an important part of how comics get made, allowing creators to pitch their work directly to readers, and providing opportunities for comics that traditional publishers may not consider. With Back Pages, ComicsAlliance hopes to provide a spotlight for some of the best comics crowdfunding projects we can find.

With 1001 Knights, editors Annie Stoll and Kevin Jay Stanton are bringing a staggeringly colossal, magnificently giant work of titanically stonking proportions to Kickstarter. Made of three volumes each representing a noble trait of knighthood, the project sees a stunning array of artists, writers, poets, and artistic types gathered together to tell stories about a diverse range of knights. Starting life as a zine --- before rapidly racing off into a far grander project --- 1001 Knights has already flown past its funding target. ComicsAlliance spoke to Stoll and Stanton about the anthologies.

‘Zinetendo’ Is Up For Preorder With All The Zelda, Pokemon And Mario Content You Need

Zinetendo00

I've identified with a lot of Dinosaur Comics strips, but I don't think any of them have ever spoken to me quite as much as the one where T-Rex talks about how Nintendo is the only corporation that he thinks of as a friend. As I've said before here at CA, I've spent more time with Mario than I have with most members of my own immediate family, and that's not a decision I regret. And if you have similar feelings and also love comics by amazingly talented young creators --- which I assume is why you're here in the first place --- then I've got something that you're probably going to want to check out.

Zinetendo, a new full-color, 46-page zine devoted entirely to Nintendo's greatest hits, is available for preorder now, and it's awesome. Check out some of my favorite pieces below!

The ‘Adventure Time’ Cast Make Their Own Zines In Issue #30 [Preview]

Adventure Time #30, Boom! Studios

One of the great thing about the Adventure Time comics -- and there are a lot of great things about the Adventure Time comics -- is how great they are for telling stories with the familiar Cartoon Network characters that you could only really tell in comics. The best example might have been the fantastic Choose-Your-Own-Adventure issue, but next week, writer Ryan North and artists Kat Philbin, Missy Pena, Becca Tobin, Liz Prince, Carey Pietsch, Jesse Tise, Ian McGinty, T. Zysk, David Cutler, Yumi Sakugawa, Shelli Paroline and Braden Lamb (phew) are doing it again with a special issue that's all about the cast making their own zines.
That's right, everyone: If you've ever wanted to know what a zine would look like if it was made by BMO, now is your chance to find out. It's about a bear named Cool Bear, and it is amazing.
