Kickstarter. All the cool kids are doing it, including the entertaining and diverse site I contributed to for a few years, Broken Frontier. Below is all the info you need to know from EiC Frederik Hautain about their new anthology which has a stellar array of comics talents.
About the Broken Frontier Anthology
The Broken Frontier Anthology is a fully creator-owned book about breaking boundaries and exploring the great unknown. This 250-page full color hardcover contains 27 stories by over 40 creators from around the world, ranging from multiple award-winning writers and artists to bright, up-and-coming talent, including Greg Pak, Nathan Fox, Cullen Bunn, Noah Van Sciver, Alison Sampson, Josh Fialkov, Fred Van Lente, Box Brown, INJ Culbard, Toby Cypress and Marguerite Bennett. They’ve united for an amazing book that has everything from outer-space sci-fi and time travel to dystopian deserts, cosmic horror and much more.
First up is the teaser image for Dark, Dark World, the all-new story created by Cullen Bunn and Nathan Fox. Dark, Dark World is a gothic fantasy tale of heroism… in a world where there is only one hero left.
And then there’s the great new trailer for the project put together by Greg Pak, highlighting the many amazing characters deputing in the anthology. You can watch it here: https://youtu.be/jsqsR8bOyVk
Put together in support of creator-owned comics, the Broken Frontier Anthology is a unique book in the sense that we’re paying creators up front, while they at the same time keep all the rights to their creations.
Here’s a word by contributing writer David Hine on why it’s so important that this book gets funded:
“It’s a model that the comics industry needs to enable established creators to work on personal, creator-owned projects, and for new and upcoming creators to reach a wider audience.”
