Crowdfunding has been a growing trend among independent Canadian creators as the best way to secure funding for a print run and promote a new creation before release. The COVID-19 pandemic has eliminated comic book conventions as a means for creators to sell their books so it seems like even more are turning to Kickstarter and similar sites to fund their comics. We’ve covered some campaigns recently so here’s a few more new ones to consider supporting. Most are already funded but you may still want a copy of them yourself since its still looking like conventions will be off for a while and who doesn’t love comic surprises in the mail. Links in the headlines lead to the project page to back.

An “Elvira” inspired horror anthology with a sinister twist!
From the writer/creator of “Witch Creek Road” and the artist/creator of “Monsterella”, “Four Chambers Of Fright” features four heart-stopping tales of terror delivered by the sensationally sadistic, “Dizzy”.
Nevin Arnold (“Monsterella”, “Calavera The Undead”) and Garth Matthams (“Witch Creek Road”, “The Living Finger”), both monstrously huge fans of the classic horror comics and magazines of the 60s and 70s, have joined forces to create a sinister spin on the classic “horror host” narrated creepy comics of yesteryear.
In the tradition of the horror host, Dizzy spins multiple tales of terror, but unlike the many masters of the macabre that came before her, Dizzy tends to be a little more…involved in her work!
