Strange Waters – Arledge Comics Anthology Now Live on KickStarter

Arledge Comics returns to KickStarter with their third anthology (and first anthology acquisition) Strange Waters.

This anthology collects 15 fantastical stories in 150 black and white pages with one common theme: water. This anthology highlights both the freedom water can bring, as well as the mysteries that lurk beneath the surface.

Cover art for the anthology is by Michi Ermolenko, contributor to Lilies Anthology Vol: 4 and Vol: 7, as well as My Kingdom for a Panel: A Shakespearean Anthology.

To Be or Not To Be? With Arledge Comic’s New Shakespearean Anthology

“Kingdom is a testament to the incredible hard work done by the writers, artists, colorists, and letterers whose work fill its pages. Shakespeare inspired them, but they leapt beyond that and created masterpieces entirely their own.” — Jenn Arledge, Founder of Arledge Comics.

Arledge Comics returns with their third Kickstarter of 2019 — My Kingdom for a Panel: A Shakespearean Anthology.

After eleven successful Kickstarter campaigns, ranging from ComixCentral award-winning Alex Priest to their first graphic novel, The Great Witch Artemis, the indie comics publisher is preparing to kickstart their second anthology, My Kingdom for a Panel: A Shakespearean Anthology.

The anthology includes a total of 24 artists hailing from all over the world. Cover art for the anthology is by Michi Ermolenko (Lilies Anthology Vol: 4 and Vol: 7, Gays in Space: A Star Wars Anthology).

“Kingdom is a culmination of several things: my love of the Bard, my appreciation for comics as a storytelling medium, and my desire to collaborate with Jenn as often as I can. Whether it’s Romeo and Juliet in space or the assassination of Julius Caesar at a school BBQ, this anthology has something for everyone and holds true to Arledge Comics’ commitments to diversity and inclusivity.” — Natalie, Editor-In-Chief at Arledge Comics.

“This is the first anthology we’ve participated in, and while writing a shorter story was a challenge, we had a blast. We’re proud to have our work featured alongside other talented creators, and stoked to see the entire book come together.” — Bryce Beal and Scott Malin

In less than 24 hours of the Kickstarter being live, My Kingdom for a Panel: A Shakespearean Anthology has reached the Projects We Love page on Kickstarter.

The campaign runs from April 10th through June 10th. Arledge Comics hopes to raise $10,000 during the run of this campaign. Rewards include a softcover of the anthology, enamel pins, a sticker set and many more items. Stretch goals include bookmarks (which are now unlocked) and a gold foil cover once the Kickstarter reaches 100 pledges by the end of April.
