Let’s continue this power hour of Kickstarting comics by turning to Modern Times, a new publication looking to mix journalism, comics, and photography.
By Olivier Kugler
Set up by Katherine Hearst and featuring contributors including Isabel Greenberg, Jess Ruliffson, Tom Humberstone and Fionnuala Doran, Modern Times is looking to fund a first print run. The first issue appears to be completely mapped out by this point, and will be themed around a discussion of housing, and issues relating to it. Written articles will feature alongside comics journalism, to create a multimedia periodical which looks at politics in the UK and Ireland.
By Madeline Swift
The project is looking for £1000 to launch the first issue, and if successful will be looking for submissions for the second issue, which would then follow on.
