About


ComixCentral Presents – The Best of Indie: Anthology 2019

The Best of Indie: Anthology 2019 is a Comic anthology sponsored by ComixCentral.com

We read comics, we create comics, we promote comics. But most of all we love Indie Comics. 

This is the reason we've decided to gather together an insanely talented group of writers, artists, letterers and other creators and create the BEST OF INDIE 2019 - ANTHOLOGY! 

ComixCentral is dedicated to helping indie comic creators find new fans and sell their work. We are creators too, and know just how hard it can be to 'catch a break' in this industry. So when our teammate Joey Sheehan said, "Let's make an anthology", we knew it was the perfect thing to do.

Our anthology team put the call out for submission late 2018 and the response was overwhelming. We certainly had the best of the best sharing their talents with us and choosing the stories for inclusion was an almost impossible task!

This anthology brings together 28 creators from all over the world, with various unique styles and story telling methods. Each creator brings their own personality and flair to this project, creating this one-of-a-kind "Best of Indie" anthology.

How many stories are in this anthology?

There are 15 different stories all completed, formatted and ready to go in the "Best of Indie 2019" anthology. That's over 100 pages of black and white indie comics greatness!

So what's the theme?

Family– Blood or not, family can mean something different to everyone. We wanted to celebrate the family bond that exists within the comics community. We asked for stories that revolved around a family like structure. They extended into other genres but all contain a family element.

What's the rating?

It's a family themed anthology so this is for all ages! Buy your kids 5! They're good kids, shouldn't you tell them you love them with 5 copies of an awesome anthology or at least one?

Why Kickstarter?

We LOVE Kickstarter!  It's the perfect platform for independent creators looking to gain new audiences and raise funds for their personal projects.  When we started this anthology, Kickstarter was our one an only choice for spreading the word and getting the talented creators within it's pages the exposure they deserve!

How will the funds be used?

The main use of the funds will be for covering the printing of the book and shipping from the printer to our team members. Other uses will include covering costs of rewards ( T-shrts, etc..) shipping of compensation to creators and purchase of shipping materials. 

Any funds raised above the goal will be put towards creating awesome stretch goals for our amazing backers!!

Risks and challenges

The biggest risk we face is making sure that the printing and shipping stay within our estimated costs as we are intending on shipping internationally. We have team members in the USA, Canada and the UK ready to print and ship from their own locations, so we believe we have met that challenge head-on. We have several experienced Kickstarter folks on the team making sure that we stay on track and in communication with our creators. All stories have been completed and our book is fully formatted, ready for print!
