Check it out. I teased the cover image to Stray Lines last week and now here’s the big announcement:
Cardboard Press (which is the small press publishing concern of Katie Blackwood and myself) is proud to announce that it will be publishing it’s first anthology, Stray Lines, featuring new work from Philip Barrett, Barry Hughes, Gus Hughes, Chris Judge & Andrew Judge, and Paddy Lynch.
Conceived as an opportunity to showcase some of Irelands most exciting and original indie comic creators together in a beautifully designed and produced publication, Stray Lines will make a handsome addition to any graphic novel collection as well as being a go-to source for new original Irish comic book talent.
I’m both super excited and incredibly nervous about this project as it’s the biggest and most ambitious project we have ever undertaken. The work from all the participants is absolutely top class and we can’t wait to share it with the world.
The cost factor is about 5 times larger than anything we’ve done previously and so we’re running a campaign to help finance the printing. I won’t go into all the details, but we’ve put together a whole range of rewards for every level of pledge, so maybe you could throw a few coppers into the pot.
