20 Indie Comics to Support on FCBD 2020 (Part 1)

The event may be postponed, but the industry keeps churning...

Like many other events, Free Comic Book Day has been rendered a casualty of 2020’s COVID-19 outbreak. However, given the significance of the annual event, many publishers, readers, and retailers alike have decided to celebrate digitally.

And while readers are certainly the life blood of the industry (them and Robert Downey Jr.) there remains a very vast network of independent creators who’re in it to love it.

So, this FCBD, while you’re sitting at home and pining for more visual-literary goodness, here’re twenty independent comics on Kickstarter that you can be a part of!

(Another 10 are listed here.)
