The Glamour of Revenge: Kyle Starks Kickstarts 'Kill Them All'
A woman breaks up with her terrible deadbeat boyfriend and has to start a new life. That's been the start of many stories, but this one's a little different. The woman in question is the world's greatest assassin, and she and her awful ex both worked for a criminal mastermind known as Requin, and the ex's response to getting dumped is to declare her a traitor. That means the new life she must start necessitates taking down Requin and his entire criminal empire before they kill her. That's the premise of Kill Them All, the upcoming graphic by Kyle Starks, which he's funding with a Kickstarter campaign that launched today.

Astro Boy: Edge of Time Brings All of Tezuka's Characters Together
For the past few days, Osamu Tezuka fans have been patiently waiting to see what secret reveal lied at the conclusion of a countdown site teasing what appeared to be a mash-up game featuring a number of Tezuka's creations. With nothing but silhouettes of more recognizable characters like Astro Boy and Black Jack, a list of mangaka and game creators contributing and the idea to "Trust the Ministry," there wasn't a lot to go on. Today, all the truths have been outed, and Project Atom unveiled the Kickstarter campaign for Astro Boy: Edge of Time, a new digital collectible card game that takes place in one world wherein all the Tezuka characters live. There's just one problem; Astro Boy's gone missing.
Kate-mia White Explores the Shadows of 'A Dark Forest'
Kate-mia White Explores the Shadows of 'A Dark Forest'
Leeds-based cartoonist Kate-mia White has been working on a fairytale, a hand-crafted comic set into seven fantastical parts. A Dark Forest is the story of Elizabeth, a young woman who lives with her family in a small house in a tiny village. However, Elizabeth starts to wonder why everyone around her is acting so strangely, and it turns out that her sister, Grace, has a bit of a secret --- and everybody else in the village is suspicious. Now running a Kickstarter for the third issue of the series, White takes elements of folk tradition, myth, and dark fantasy and blends them into a unique, wonderful narrative. Completely hand-made --- every issue is hand-bound --- the sheer level of craft on display with this project is absolutely amazing. A Dark Forest is illustrated in keen detail, with a slowly unravelling narrative that feels like a fresh take on the classic fairytale. Back Pages spoke to White to learn more.

Whether that person deserves the throne is not important; the kingdom needs a regent! As Hoelzemann brings the series to Kickstarter to seek a print release of the first volume, Back Pages spoke to her about how the story came about, and how she keeps up her weekly routine of comics intrigue.
