Kickstarter! A New Canon!


Love
Star Wars? Hate Star Wars? Can take or leave Star Wars? Well, A New Canon is the comic-book for you!

A New Canon collects together all nineteen episodes of the Star Wars inspired comedy for the first time. Written and drawn entirely by Paul B. Rainey, Viz Comic cartoonist and winner of the Jonathan Cape/Observer Newspaper/Comica Graphic Short Story Prize.

This collection also features Yesterday’s Chips, also by Paul B. Rainey. Yesterday’s Chips is a brand-new tale from the artist’s memoirs about his attempts to persuade his parents to take him to see the first Star Wars movie in 1977. Did he succeed? There’s only two ways to find out! Pledge to this campaign or, you know, just ask him.

A New Canon is 28 Pages long, black and white interior with full-colour covers. Nearly US comic size!

Unseen episodes of Ricky Gervais: He Talks To The Animals!

Unbelievable but true stories from the artist’s memoirs including William, It Was EverythingBoom Boom Push The Button and introducing Aunty Bunty!

GRIPE NIGHT is 28 pages long, features a mix of black and white and colour strips, A4 sized magazine.

The first rule of GRIPE NIGHT is that you tell everybody about GRIPE NIGHT.

Richard Bruton for Comicon, “I’ve read Rainey’s work for decades now – and it would be fair to say that he’s never written or drawn better”.
