SPOD! Oddities from Space

Brought to you by

Space Oddities was a short run idea utilised in Mark Millar's comic platform Clint. 

The basic premise was simple five pages or less comic shorts with a sting in the tale ending. Artists and writers from across the globe were actively encouraged to post their work on the Millarworld forums in the hope that some of them would eventually be printed. What resulted was a ton of incredible and unique strips from some of the industry’s hottest new talent.

A small group of us from the forums decided it would be a cool idea to gather all these great stories into one single volume and unleash it on the world and so Spod! Oddities From Space was born. Featuring the creative talents of over forty writers and artists, including the industry’s current high-flyers; JEFF MCCOMSEY (FUBAR), MONTY NERO (DEATH SENTENCE) and NEIL GIBSON (TWISTED DARK). Each story is unique, no longer than five pages long, so you can either snack at your leisure or gorge till your stomach bursts. Feast on tales filled with sex, violence, aliens and wrongness, with a side order of terror and dark twisted humour to wash it down.


We are looking to raise £1500 to make this a reality and we need your help. SPOD! Oddities From Space is a thrilling 130+ page full colour TPB graphic comic filled with twenty five original stories of suspense and terror in a universe gone horribly wrong

Risks and challenges

As with every project, there is the risk of natural disasters and other cataclysmic events interfering with manufacturing and shipping schedules.

This is our first Kickstarter campaign so please be patient with us. Everyone involved, from the printers to the distributors are professionals and have had years of experience so even if we can't promise that there won't be any mistakes, we've worked very hard to make sure that if there are, there won't be many.
