“This Week in Comics” is a new, (hopefully) weekly segment where we showcase interesting and relevant comics news with an emphasis on local creators.
This past week, two new Kickstarters were launched by Cloudscape members.
The first Kickstarter, Rise of the White Phoenix by Lisa Lindsay LaRose is a comic about a young girl named Luisa who wants to become a Luchadora: a Mexican wrestler. Luisa has been keeping her fighting a secret from her father, who does not approve, but he’s been keeping secrets too…
The Kickstarter is running until April 4th.
The second Kickstarter, Band Vs. Band by Kathleen Jacques is about two clashing musicians: wholesome do-gooder Honey Hart with her band The Candy Hearts, and bad-girl troublemaker Turpentine with her dirty noisy band The Sourballs. The gals start as enemies and rivals with a secret attraction to each other, but gradually fall in love. It’s fun, queer, and retro-inspired, with a distinctive visual style.
The Kickstarter is running until March 20th.
The following are active webcomics by local comics creators

Aaand That’s a Wrap!
