About

Neither Here Nor Hair is heartfelt comics anthology by 14 Australian creators about their relationships with hair (of all kinds). From hilarious to gut-punching, exploring our cultural norms and sometimes rejecting them, 14 creators come together for this sincere, insightful collection of comics drawn from the creator's own lives. 

Featuring comics from:

  • Sarah Catherine Firth
  • Ele Jenkins
  • Emma Jean
  • Leonie Brialey
  • Alex E Clark
  • Claire Murray
  • Michel Gerencir
  • Alyce Sarich
  • Natalia Zajaz
  • Soolagna Majumdar
  • Danikah Harrison
  • Sarah W Searle
  • Alisha Jade

As a concept, Neither Here Nor Hair grew after I made my minicomic Disgusting! (also about hair) and saw how a wide range of people enthusiastically enjoyed it. In our society we are constantly marketed ideas about hair, whether on our heads, face, armpits, legs, and everywhere in between, but we're rarely given the chance to talk about our experiences. There is a hunger for real and relatable perspectives about this sometimes small thing that can be such a big deal in our lives, and I think comics is the perfect medium for it!

There are some stretch goals planned, but the main one is that every dollar contributed over our goal will count towards creator bonuses. While everyone is being paid regardless, it's really important to me that if this does well they take home as much as possible.

Just a pdf, and our thanks <3 

It's why we're here! A softcover copy of the anthology, printed in Brisbane, Australia. This 128 page B5 book will feature a gorgeous cover by Eisner award nominated Reimena Ashel Yee complete with embossing, and our thanks. 

 A PDF AND the softcover book!

Everything is more fun when it's shared with a friend! Get two books and two PDFs with this tier, with no additional shipping cost! 

Along with your PDF and soft cover copy of Neither Here Nor Hair, you will get a Kickstarter exclusive limited and numbered print of the beautiful cover drawn by Eisner nominated Reimena Ashel Yee!

A colourful unique sketch will come in your book from Alisha Jade, drawn in Posca markers. 

With so many amazing creators involved, there are a few with upcoming comics you can snag in this package deal! Along with Neither Here Nor Hair you will receive new and recently published comics -

- 'Strangers' by Alyce Sarich, 

- 'Twisted Romance #4' featuring work by Sarah W Searle

- 'Bookmarked' and 'Junk Witch' by Ele Jenkins and

- 'Zephyrus ' by Alex Clarke,

you will also be one of the first to get Alisha Jade's new collection of previously unpublished and out of print minicomics Calala Drive, a 156 page colour book complete with gold foiling. No one else will get this book before backers! For this tier, your copy of Neither Here Nor Hair will be sent separately earlier to ensure you get your copy before the public as well, with the package coming once print is complete within 6-8 weeks. 

Not in the anthology but really pretty! And it could be yours!

Alisha's Poscas are getting a workout with this tier! You will receive a unique tshirt drawn over with Posca markers in a hair related design. No two will be the same! You also will receive the PDF and soft cover copy of Neither Here Nor Hair. 

A sample - though if you absolutely must have this one that's fine. It'll be washed.

Risks and challenges

I've printed a lot before, and run kickstarters before, so there's not a lot that I can't find a solution for one way or the other. All the comics are already complete, it's just off to print and posting it out to everyone!

    Wax n burn

    Alisha has never, EVER, had hair waxed. If this tier is chosen, not only will Alisha have her legs waxed (which have not been shaved in 3 years) it will all be filmed and put online for everyone's amusement. This may end up being something like 40 Year Old Virgin's infamous wax scene but Alisha is up for it if you are.
