The Sunday Comics return to their former glory! 300+ Creators have joined The Sunday Comics to bring you an unparalleled variety of comic content that can't be seen anywhere else. Presented to you on GIANT sized 15" Inch X 22" Inch broadsheet newspaper! Get your copy while it's HOT!

For anyone that had questions, we want to clear them up. Our "stretch goals" are not included in each reward tier. Think of each stretch goal as something new that will now be able to be purchased! For example, now that we've reached $10,000 we will print 12 issues of The Sunday Comics and you have the option of picking each one of these babies up! 

To get the double sized first issue you either need the 3 month subscription or just add $10 dollars to your reward. All rewards come with the just the 0 issue unless you have a monthly subscription!
To get the double sized first issue you either need the 3 month subscription or just add $10 dollars to your reward. All rewards come with the just the 0 issue unless you have a monthly subscription!

Please note, if you still want to keep the reward level you're in, like "Getting Drawn Into a Comic", one of the T-shirts, the print package or any others, and increase your subscription, just send a message to us and we'll let you know how much to add to your pledge!

Hope that will answer any questions! If you want any additional add ons please just send us a message if you need further explanation!

We have taken a timeless classic and added an entirely new spin on it! A modern take on a traditional art form is what we knew would drive the ultimate success of our project. By fusing together comic strips with serialized comic books, illustrated stories and many other art forms, GOLDEN BELL has published a work of art that you won't forget!

After printing The Sunday Comics, we didn't want to wait a moment longer to share this treasure with you. We've set a goal that we feel will cover the bare minimum expenses (such as shipping, transportation costs from the printing company, Kickstarter fees, and everyone's favorite...taxes) to get this to your door! Check out our various reward tiers above and see our easily attainable stretch goals to get the monthly subscription for The Sunday Comics up and running to your doorstep!

Who are we and why are we qualified to do this?

Marc in the Middle, Rachel on the Right, Rob on the Left!
Marc in the Middle, Rachel on the Right, Rob on the Left!

The core team here founded Golden Bell with a basic principle, "Comics for Change". We set our sights on the world to bring diversity to a medium that has less then often ever seen any real change. While Rachel Korsen is an Artist & Animator, Marc Goldner & Rob Gross are writers. We've always decided to put creative above all else because without a good idea to develop, there will be nothing for anyone to execute. While Marc operates daily business activity including expanding the Golden Bell family, Rachel & Rob are creating brand new and original content every day. As publishers, we've launched our imprint with The Sunday Comics and have already printed our "ZERO" issue that we know you're all going to adore & love!

300 creators are part of The Sunday Comics? Who are they?!

Our creators are what have made this whole adventure possible. Without them we don't know where we would be. While we may not have enough room to spotlight everyone, we wanted to give you just a taste of the sheer level of talent that are creating brand new original content for The Sunday Comics. If you'd like to see a full list of the creators and check out their other works please visit our website at www.TheSundayComics.com

What Syndicates & License will be part of The Sunday Comics?

You name it, we've worked out a deal! Whether it's Dennis The Menace or Prince Valiant or Popeye from King Features, Garfield or Peanuts from Universal UClick, Archie or Rugrats from Creators, Dick Tracy from Tribune, we'll have it here! Additionally, we've partnered with Playtonic Games to create the original Yooka-Laylee comic! There's a couple other surprises; our creators will be making original Garfields for the first time ever and we'll be featuring TARZAN from the Edgar Rice Burroughs company! We have also reached a deal with The Ohio State University's Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum to bring you archives that are public domain!

Risks and challenges

Our biggest risks and challenges when we started The Sunday Comics was the potential for delays in printing and artist submissions. We've luckily now avoided those risks by staying a month ahead of schedule and printing the "ZERO" Issue of The Sunday Comics and having the first years worth of "The Sunday Comics" lined up and ready for the printer. It should be smooth sailing from here, folks! Let us know if you have any questions or concerns and we will address each and ever single one of you. Thanks!
