Book 3: Infection is available through an Indiegogo campaign, not a Kickstarter, I’m guessing because Tara Tallan is Canadian. The basic book level gets you a copy both in print and digitally for $25 (which includes shipping in the US and Canada). If they get half their goal, they’ll also give everyone digital copies of the first two books.
The campaign page also has a brief history of the comic, pointing out that the story first entered print 20 years ago. Bravo, Tara, for keeping it going! That’s another reason I get excited about new collections — I’ve been reading this story since 1995, and I’m still curious to find out what happens next.
Alison Wilgus is printing a collection of her mystical, user-driven webcomic A Stray in the Woods. The Kickstarter campaign for this one is already funded, so hop over and preorder a color volume. I’m bummed I missed out on the early bird level, but $25 for the book (including shipping) seems fair. It comes with a PDF and a downloadable copy of the theme music!
Another Kickstarter that’s well over its funding goal is Ursula Murray Husted’s Lions of Valletta, an all-ages graphic novel about orphan cats living on the waterfront of Malta. (I’ve previously praised Husted’s prior two graphic novels, Making Rain and Looking Up.) Visually, the book contains some amazing allusions to art history, and the story’s about searching for a home and a place to belong. It’s both touching and already done! Backers instantly get a PDF copy.
