Benign Kingdom is a creator-owned publishing project designed to showcase the art of independent comic creators. It was founded by Evan Dahm (Rice Boy), Becky Dreistadt & Frank Gibson (Tiny Kitten Teeth), and KC Green (Gunshow), Yuko Ota & Ananth Panagariya (Johnny Wander), with assistance by George Rohac (GRohac). In the Spring of 2012 it released 4 high quality art books and a collected hardcover featuring Evan, Becky, KC, and Yuko’s work.
The books and collections were well received, and so we decided to bring you another set featuring a new selection of artists. We’d like your help to release -
