About this project

Monsters of the Deep is an illustrated anthology zine about the creatures that lurk beneath the waves. 

Consisting of illustrations and comics from over 60 artists, Monsters of the Deep is a zine exploring the creatures that keep us from going in the water. We've turned to Kickstarter to help fund the printing and shipping of the book because we want to be able to share all the amazing artwork we've received for the zine. The interior of the zine is B&W and divided by real and fictional creatures. The cover is triple folded and hand screen-printed.

ABOUT US!!!

Monsters of the Deep is the first publication from the Baltimore based independent press, Nessie Press. Founded in 2014 by 4 MICA students, Nessie Press looks to foster a love for independent publishing and small run mini-comics and zines. Follow us on tumblr for more updates on the Monsters of the Deep zine and future projects: nessiepress.tumblr.com !

 

Risks and challenges

As this is our first publication as an independent press, there are some things we haven't had experience with yet. We have chosen a printer for the interior of the book and are going to be screen-printing the cover of the zine ourselves. Each of the members of Nessie Press have experience with screen-printing and independently self-publishing comics and zines. The only aspects of the project not completed are the actual printing of the zine, the printing of the posters, and the shipping of the rewards, which will all happen once the project is funded.
