IWG is putting the word out for local Indiana comics writer Paul Beel and his project Tales of Power #1. Paul’s comic label King Comics is using Kickstarter to fund the printing of this issue. We think that’s awesome and hope you’ll all check out their Kickstarter page:
Tales of Power is an action-packed team-up book that will introduce the many heroes and villains of the KING Comics universe!! Issue one will follow the heroes Apex and Oath as they battle the villains Atomic and Thoom! Also guest-starring Bluejaye, Scripture, and the Green Zap!!
Just what are Atomic and Thoom after? And why?? Will Apex and Oath discover their plans in time? If they do, can even the combined might of our heroes stop them? Where and how does the Khemica Corporation fit into all of this?
If our goal is met, it will pay for the printing fees of Tales of Power # 1! We at KING Comics, LLC thank you for your interest and support! May GOD bless you and your families!
Paul and his partners publish their books all out of their own pockets literally showing their faith in their projects. This time you can help them bring Tales of Power to life!
This is exciting! Ryan McCracken of Boss Nacho productions attended our launch party for the anthology on April 23rd. As part of his Indy After Dark series, he put together a short video featuring our new book with clips from several of our group’s artists.
You can see the video on his site, on youtube, or right here on the IWG website. Just click the menu above where it says IWG Anthology. The book can be purchased right here off our site, anywhere it says SUPPORT IWG Buy Now in the sidebar beneath a picture of the anthology cover.
$15 plus shipping will get you 148 pages from 19 different artists, spanning most genres from Slice of Life to Sci-fi and Noir. This is an self-published anthology, printed through Lulu.com, so you can count on the quality and workmanship associated with Lulu.
Here’s the video. We hope you enjoy it and decide to support independent comics.
The Indy Webcomics Group will soon be releasing a new comic anthology filled with short stories and artwork from all local artists and writers. The book is expected to be released officially on April 23rd.
Here’s the blurb from the back cover:
“The Indy Webcomics Group was founded in 2007 as a vehicle to connect and promote Indiana’s independant comic scene. IWG is comprised of a diverse group of comic book artists and writers living and working in Indiana.
2010 sees IWG expanding with new blood and new goals, the first of which is this collection of comic art and short stories. Welcome to Indiana is an eclectic mix of styles and genres reflecting the authors’ many influences in today’s graphic media ranging from animation and Manga to the Golden Age of comics.”
We’ll be announcing on this blog as soon as the book is available to buy. And leading up to the book’s release we may post a sample page or two to tease and entice you.
PS. With this post we officially re-launch indywebcomics.com with an updated look and lots more new content on the way.
