New Year, New Comic Anthology (featuring Complete Darkness)


The Future of Comics is here... New Year, New Stories 2022

Just when you thought it was safe...New Year, New Stories 2022 bursts onto the scene with a celebration of indie comics which are new for 2022! Am absolutely delighted to have Complete Darkness feature in this alongside a host of new talent!!

This project was conceived as a way to raise awareness of the indie comic artists who would normally rely on conventions to spread the word about their work. 

With 2019 and 2020 seeing loads of cancelled conventions, the Shades of Vengeance Comics team came together with several other indie creators to share their expertise in crowdfunding and generate the deserved excitement about some of the stories that you probably didn’t even know were published!

Get on board for:

- An anthology of 15 comics between 6 and 12 pages long. That’s right, there are 15 separate stories in this anthology, which comes to 156 pages in total! These are just a taste of the work of these amazing creators - each story also features a “links page” which allows you to find out more about your favourite creators in the anthology. There’s loads more detail on the Kickstarter page, so check it out to learn more about the stories. Find out HERE

- It’s the second anthology of its type. The level of support that appeared for the indie creators who submitted to the anthology last year was amazing! Don’t worry if you missed it, we’re offering the chance to catch up by getting hold of New Year, New Stories 2021 through this Kickstarter… Check the Kickstarter to see photos of the previous print, giving you an idea of what to expect from 2022’s anthology! 

 - These titles all came out during 2021 or are yet to be released… Every story in New Year, New Stories 2022 either came out in the last twelve months… or hasn’t been published at all elsewhere yet! Nothing’s stopping the creators doing that, if they wish, but these are some of the freshest stories from these amazing creators, so check them out and help bring them to reality! I have been creating for almost a decade.
I asked Ed Jowett who is the supremo behind this project why he did it - he said:

"I love telling stories and bringing my ideas to life whether on paper, via audio or in other ways. For me, every story is an expression of the universe that it’s in… and I see myself as a universe creator and worldbuilder first, and a storyteller second.
I also love enabling others to tell their stories, which is why I started the “New Year, New Stories” project! As the editor, it’s been very rewarding to see stories I otherwise might never have been able to, and help people who had no idea how to get their work printed hold it for the first time." 

What a legend!
