A Special Issue of Our Journal

Special Issue | INK BRICK no. 8 | Cover by Paul Madonna
Special Issue | INK BRICK no. 8 | Cover by Paul Madonna

INK BRICK is a small press dedicated to comics poetry, founded in 2014. Our focus is a literary journal, also called Ink Brick. For the first time, the fall issue of the journal will debut in bookstores across the country. To celebrate this milestone, we've invited some of our favorite cartoonist-poets to collaborate on a special issue. 

Support this project and you'll get 80 groundbreaking pages of full-color comics poetry by 20 creators at the top of the form. (Our distributor works well in advance, which is why we're building issue 8 before issue 7 is out!)

In 2017, everyone knows that comics are a powerful medium for storytelling and beautiful artwork. But what other expressive possibilities are hidden in the form? What new things can we say with all the elements of the comics page—the panel arrangements, cartooning, word balloons and captions, lettering styles, and on and on? In short, what else can comics do?

We started Ink Brick to answer that question. We started it to create a home for this exciting form that most people still don't know about, to create a community. We've now published six issues featuring over 100 creators from across the world. We're getting more work than we know what to do with, and we need your help to expand our reach and embark on exciting new projects.

Our press introduces new readers to the form and showcases diverse creators from around the world, whose varied styles and approaches point to the endless potential of the form. Your support will help us to reach new audiences, and to continue recruiting as many fantastic creators as possible.

You can also help us nurture the community of cartoonist-poets. Through our online store, we distribute projects for contributors and friends of the press, because we believe it's important for artists to make money from their work, and that a rising tide lifts all ships. We also occasionally publish mini comics to dive deeper into the work of individual artists.

 As our issues quickly grew longer and featured more and more creators, we could no longer afford to pay contributor fees. We've committed to do so for this special issue, and your pledges will help ensure our ability to compensate all journal contributors moving forward. This is difficult, time-consuming work to produce, and supporting creators is the most important part of our mission.

Comics poetry has been around for a long time. You can find precedents in the collaborations between Joe Brainard and New York School poets like Frank O'Hara, John Ashbery, and Barbara Guest; in "The Dream and Lie of Franco" by Pablo Picasso; or in George Herriman's Krazy Kat, to name a few examples. 

What's certain is that there has never been more exciting work being done in the form, and that Ink Brick is a leader of the new movement.

We've done a lot in the last three years, and we're ready to do so much more. Join us for the next stage of our development—together we'll reach new audiences; support creators by providing a forum, creative feedback, direct compensation, and a marketplace for distribution; and we'll embark on more ambitious new projects with individual cartoonist-poets. 

We can't do it without you, and we're deeply grateful for your support.

These one-of-a-kind prints were generated during the press check for INK BRICK no. 2. By chance (!) the printer ran test pages of that issue over test pages from our previous one that were somehow still on hand. The results are gorgeous and weird mash-ups.Each one is approximately 9" x 12" and entirely unique.

Risks and challenges

We've proven our ability to deliver quality publications over six issues of the journal and several mini comics. By the time this special issue hits shelves, our seventh issue will be out as well. We've had time to perfect our format and production process, and we know that we'll get quality work from our printer.

We already have everyone's work this time, so barring an actual apocalypse, this book is coming out. Note that our distributor requires many months of lead time for our book to get into bookstores; thus the issue will not ship until the fall. (Some rewards tiers have additional shipping charges built in so that we can ship other books to you as soon as they're ready. We've indicated when this is the case.)

Your contributions will help us figure out how many copies to print. Knowing this can greatly reduce our risks and increase the long-term sustainability of our efforts.

It's always a challenge to coordinate getting rewards to folks. All of the creators contributing to this campaign are working professionals. We have great relationships with everyone and will be able to get rewards out promptly.
