Some you may know, some are new, all of them you can get to know and maybe explore their own comics in which they have all appeared.
All the creative teams keep ownership of their character, get paid thanks to your kickstarter support and benefit from rewards and the more people who buy the annual.
The Annual is brought to you by the team that makes ComicScene Magazine, the ComicScene Annual 2019 (which was largely reprints and material from the 1990’s zine Atomic in a 320 softback edition – available as part of the digital rewards with back issues of ComicScene) and recently launched the History of Comics Book Collection (due out in November).
The Annual will be sent out to you in November – to have for yourself or give as a gift at Christmas.
