A very quick post about some British creators who have active Kickstarter campaigns running at the moment. Some very interesting and varied projects that deserve the support of British comic fans.

Ness, from writer Chris Welsh and Dublin Artist Rob Carey, is a Lovecraftian horror story set on the banks of Loch Ness. Chris wants to give the UK its own giant monster but somehow this looks much more interesting then Cloverfield or Godzilla and his friends. The preview pages look fantastic. Rob's artwork has an atmospheric and cinematic style all of its own. He must, or at least should, be on the radar of some of the bigger publishers. Chris already has a pedigree as a writer with his excellent Wart comic, digital versions of which are available as part of this offering. Projected to run at least 4 issues this Kickstarter campaign is to fund the first. There are still a couple of weeks to run on this campaign and again it is already fully funded.

I suspect that these round ups of what I'm looking at in Kickstarter will become a regular part of Splank! If you are a creator starting a Kickstarter campaign do drop me a line to the Splank! e-mail address if you are interested in being included.
