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!
Originally planned to debut at the Vancouver Comic Arts Festival 2020, Meow the Infinite is one of many titles to have found a new home on crowdfunding platforms. Following a young girl whose universe is threatened by a destructive force beyond her comprehension, and her fearless starfaring feline companion, this one could give the Guardians of the Galaxy a run for their (stolen) money.
The free-to-read webcomic gets its print debut on Kickstarter! The series follows four disillusioned friends who lead double lives, outwitting their circumstances by day, scaring people out of their lives (and wallets) by night.
