Kickstarter and Bookshop joining together To promote Indie graphic Novels

some of the best graphic novels began as Kickstarter campaigns, but rarely do we see them in our local bookshop. Or on Amazon, for that matter. However, we might see one of those problems start going away. Bookshop and Kickstarter are now partnering to push crowdfunded indie graphic novels and comics beyond their fundraising stage. As a result, some of the best graphic novels could experience even much more sales than ever before.

Kickstarter and Bookshop Aren’t just publishing Indie graphic Novels – but It’s Their most significant Draw.

The new joint site, called Kickstarter publishing (powered by Bookshop), has several curated lists already. There are novels, children’s picture books, cookbooks, and, of course, comics. So far, the comics and graphic novel list includes 48 books. some of them flew way under the radar, but others have become huge hits. For instance, the series that Warner Bros is adapting, Black. In fact, Black actually helped launch one of the best new imprints in comics, Black Mask. but it started as a Kickstarter before it ever saw the inside of a bookstore. Now, Kickstarter publishing will help books as popular as Black. but they are also promoting lesser-known titles, such as Katrina Hates the Dead increase their sales and audience.

There are hundreds of projects on Kickstarter, but there are two really exciting. Firstly, a new graphic novel from Eisner winner Marco Lopez and artist David Brame, Blanco volume One: The truth shall set You Free. As Lopez describes on the page:

In a post-apocalyptic future where man has long because been gone, and medieval kingdoms control their people with an iron fist, religious guideline is the purchase of the day. and Blanco is one of the most beloved warriors in the kingdom of the seraph Azrael.

He and his brother Cane hunt the heretics who dare defy their father’s law. Zealots of a new apocryphal belief that is spreading across the five Kingdoms and the Middling Lands.

When Blanco discovers a band of heretics is heading through the outer zone to a safe haven, they call new Eden. He chooses to make an example of them, but what he finds in the outer zone will literally change his perception of the world he lives in.

Secondly, there’s LAMBDA Literary Fellow Tina Horn’s sequel to her exceptional image Comic series SFSX, SFSX volume Two: terms of Service. As Horn describes the series:

After their previous adventures in sex, love, and torture left them separated and traumatized, our dirty Mind heroes should face new state sanctioned nightmares in SfSx: terms of Service.

ToS brings the same combination of sensual thrills, fetish imagination, and political subtext that fans of SfSx have come to love. Both a continuation of the series’ world-building and a stand-alone graphic novel, this intelligent and colorful dystopian satire is ideal for fans of Ex Machina, “San Junipero,” and Pose.

We can’t wait to see what other indie graphic novels come to the Kickstarter Bookshop page. Hopefully, it will lead people to discover even much more fantastic comics.
