About

Faction - Comic Anthology

Project 2012-10-10 06:03:24 +1300

If you're a comic artist in New Zealand, getting your work seen isn't always easy! 

That's why we're launching a brand new comic anthology called Faction, which we intend to release twice a year. Our aim is to showcase some of the spectacular comic art that is produced in New Zealand – both to markets here and overseas.

At the same time, we want to build up a guaranteed audience for kiwi comic artists, by growing a database of readers for Faction, so that as we move forward, each issue has more and more readers. 

To do this, we'll be giving away the digital version of Faction (perfect for the iPad and other tablets, but also readable on your computer) for free! All you need to do is subscribe on our website - and you can read each and every issue at no charge! 

We will also create a print version - for people who like their comics hard, and to help market the online version. In addition, we plan to market it with fliers and posters. That's why we need your support - to pay for our print costs - so we can get this beautiful looking comic out to as many people as possible!
