Back in April I covered the launch (here) of Pete Nash's efforts to raise £30,000 to launch, among other things, a weekly Striker comic (again).
The Kickstarter eventually raised £43,719 - smashing through the £30,000 barrier with just a few days to go if I remember rightly and so, tight on time, here's the cover of issue 1 of Striker comic.
As he explained at the time...
This Kickstarter project is for the first 12 weekly
issues of the Striker comic - but our goal is to publish 50 weekly issues a
year. Issues 13 onwards will
be funded by the renewal of subscriptions and continued retail sales, combined with
further Kickstarter projects.
The plans to reprint classic British football strips have been dropped due to a lack of space.
So if, like me, you backed this project watch out for your new weekly comic arriving soon.
