Swan Song Kickstarter continues

Just reminding everyone that we are in the middle of the Kickstarter for Swan Song. This full-colour anthology of awesome music-themed comics features stories from numerous local artists, including Sfé R. Monster (Eth’s Skin), Simon Roy (Prophet, Tiger Lung), Alina Pete (Weregeek), Angela Melick (Wasted Talent), Jonathon Dalton (Mad Tea Party, Lords of Death & Life), and others. It features 22 stories, over 200 pages of comics, which explore all the numerous forms that music can take, told across numerous genres. The book includes an adaptation of a Welsh legend, non-fiction pieces on music history and the science of rhythm, fantasy tales of song-stealing dragons, frustrated mermaids, and musically-inclined mushrooms, real-world dramas on the changing music scene and Indian traditional dance, science fiction distopias where music has been outlawed, and many more.

Check out the Swan Song Kickstarter to buy a copy of this book as well as numerous other comics published by Cloudscape and others created by our contributors.
