Update: here's a look at the cover drawn by the great Gemma Correll.

Eat More Comics!

Since The Nib launched in September 2013 we've published over 2,000 comics. We want to commemorate our second anniversary with a giant hardcover collection featuring our best political cartoons, comics journalism, non-fiction and humor.

We're packing the book with comics: 300 pages featuring dozens of the best cartoonists to ever toon a toon. I mean, it's going to be a large book.

Hilarious comics from Gemma Correll · Rich Stevens · Zach Weinersmith · Jon Rosenberg · Emily Flake · KC Green

Political cartoons from Tom Tomorrow · Matt Bors · Jen Sorensen · Matt Lubchansky · Ann Telnaes · Brian McFadden · Liza Donnelly· Ruben Bolling · Ted Rall · Keith Knight

Journalism by Andy Warner · Josh Neufeld · Susie Cagle · Emi Gennis · Ryan Alexander-Tanner · Eleri Harris · Erik Thurman · Jess Ruliffson · Sophie Yanow · Roxanne Palmer

Comic essays by Ron Wimberly · Erika Moen · Sarah Glidden · Wendy Macnaughton · Mike Dawson · Lucy Bellwood · Whit Taylor  · Lisa Eisenberg · Eroyn Franklin · JJ McCullough 

More? Yes, more: Kate Leth · James Sturm · Shannon Wheeler · Scott Bateman · Eleanor Davis · Maki Naro · John Leavitt · Kendra Wells

NIBBY SAYS:

REWARDS!

We've got a selection of prints and books available from Sarah Glidden, Matt Lubchansky, Susie Cagle, Erika Moen, Scott Bateman, Jon Rosenberg, Ted Rall, Lucy Bellwood, and more. Also Rich Stevens made poop bags, if that's your thing.

Risks and challenges

We're working with the fine folks at Make That Thing to do fulfillment and Matt Bors has run a successful Kickstarter before. So we're not anticipating any problems! However, we're on a very tight deadline to have the books out by SPX so hitting that will be our main challenge.
