Wiltshire-Based Comic Creator Nich Angell Becomes First of Few on Kickstarter

Share Article

Following a recent publishing deal with Zeta Comics, artist and writer Nich Angell has become one of a handful of British people to launch a Kickstarter campaign, to fund the second installment of his book.

7String Volume 1 has already received rave reviews from peers and critics alike, and now the Salisbury-based creator is hoping to continue the success by appealing for fans worldwide to collectively donate £10,000 to fund the making of Volume 2.

Kickstarter only opened its doors to UK projects in early November, and so Nich is hoping to be one of the first few in the country to successfully achieve his target goal before the month-long opportunity closes on 9th December.

Nich will be attending the renowned Thought Bubble comic convention in Leeds on November 17th and 18th, where he will be exhibiting his work and also taking part in a question and answer panel about upcoming series VS Comics.

Nich is available for interview. All media enquiries may email nichangell(at)hotmail(dot)co(dot)uk

About Kickstarter

Kickstarter is a crowd-funding website that can be used to gather any sum of money to fund a range of projects and products.
Kickstarter only opened its doors to UK-based projects in November 2012. Previously it was primarily for projects in America.
Funding is normally open for 1 or 2 months, and curators are able to set their own target amounts. If they fail to reach that amount, the project is not funded and nobody is charged. If the project surpasses its target, there is no ceiling on how much can be raised in the time limit.
