Incoming! magazine is a collection of science fiction comics and short stories delivered in a smart, design-led package that is available to fund on Kickstarter right now.
Our mission statement is simple. It comprises two parts:
- To share the most entertaining sci-fi stories we can find with as large an audience as possible.
- To run an open-minded platform that comic creative teams of all types and styles feel comfortable submitting to.
We put a call out for entries in July 2020, and since then have chosen our three favourites comic stories and prose story, commissioned, and paid for them.
We believe that everybody who loves to read and create science fiction comics and prose should be excited about Incoming!
That’s because, with our main ethos being to publish the most entertaining stories, we are in the ideal position to boost the unusual, the abstract and the risky – stories that boil in the hard-edged places where innovation is forged.
And the second part of our mission statement means that the magazine will always be driven by fresh talent who want to put down a bold and exciting marker – to show what they can do.
In this way, Incoming! will become not just an anthology, but a living, dynamic platform for creative teams of all types to rally around.
The pilot issue will be available as a PDF only at this stage. However, we have plans to publish it as a real-life magazine you can hold in your hands and create further issues with expanded page counts and serialised stories.
You can read more about the creators who will feature in the pilot issue on our Kickstarter page.
