Two members of the newly formed collective discuss their current Kickstarter campaign as it nears its completion date.
In January, a new comics imprint, Imminent Press, took to Kickstarter to raise funds to bring their graphic novel anthology, titled Terminal, to life. The campaign failed.
But more importantly, they didn’t give up.
The second time’s the charm, as they dusted themselves off and retooled their project and campaign. Now with less than a week left, they’ve hit their funding goal for the first issue of a Terminal miniseries, with hopes that they can earn enough to publish the second issue as well. Contributors to the project include a mix of veteran and emerging comic and webcomic creators, along with several names you might recognize from the comic press — one of whom is even our former boss.
I spoke with two members of their “board,” Steve Ekstrom and Troy Brownfield, about Imminent Press, Terminal, their Kickstarter campaign and more.

“Artist Toby Cypress and I set out to make Retcon a ‘craft’ comic book,” Nixon said in a news release. “We took our time and made sure from layout to panel design to colors and letters—every piece fits, nothing was rushed. We made the best book that we could, and we believe it will find its audience.”

Plaid Hat Games’ popular board game comes to comics.
In advance of this year’s C2E2 convention in Chicago, Oni Press announced that Kyle Starks and Gabo will team up for a new horror-comedy mini-series based on the board game Dead of Winter by Plaid Hat Games.
The story will feature Sparky, a former canine TV star turned undead killing machine, as he tries to help survivors out during the zombie apocalypse. I couldn’t tell if he’s a fixture of the games or not, but if so, boy do I want to play them now.
Canadian electropop queen Lights has announced her fourth studio album in conjunction with a comic series. The project, called Skin&Earth, is entirely written and drawn by Lights and published by Dynamite Entertainment.
In the official press release, Lights commented, “I feel my whole life has lead up to a project like this. It’s a complete convergence of everything I love – music, comics, post-apocalyptic romance, crystals, wine and powerful ladies, all perfectly entwined. It’ll be by far my most care-free and fierce album yet. I think now, more than ever, people need a reason to listen to a whole record, and this is mine.”
