There’s a new New Zealand comics anthology / magazine just out now, called Faction. It has a range of cool comics by the likes of Karl Wills, Matt Emery, Ned Wenlock, Christian Pierce, the comic’s curator / publisher Damon Keen, a cover by the mighty Greg Broadmore and heaps more. Oh, and me – a story called Bookish. It’s a beautifully produced, perfect bound publication – a testament to the hard work Damon put in to making it, and the crowd funding campaign he ran to support it (and thanks, of course, to the generous donors to the cord funding, who are credited in the back of the comic.)
As someone who many, many moons ago tried something like this (a once-only comic called Scratch), I know how hard it can be to keep going. I hope this issue does well, and that we see more of them in the future.
You can get Faction from comic shops around New Zealand (I expect) or from here. There will be a FREE digital version soon!
