Glasgow-based BHP Comics’ Bold Universe Kickstarter enters the home stretch

BHP Comics are currently crowdfunding the release of their ‘Bold Universe’, a set of four one-shot comics which, when combined, create “a subtle overarching story that explores the dynamics and consequences of power.”

The release is already fully funded on Kickstarter, and the campaign is set to run until Friday the 29th of April, with a variety of physical, digital, single and combined pledge levels available.

Speaking about the release, Poject Co-director Gary Chudleigh said, “I’m immensely proud of these titles. We have poured a year’s work into their conception and production, resulting in a collection of rich stories with three-dimensional, dynamic characters. These titles can easily stand side-by-side with the bigger publishers on the market.”

Backers who support the comics on Kickstarter will get their copies in May 2022, a whole three months before the collection reaches comic stores in August 2022.

The four stories, which cover a variety of themes and genres, include a plethora of diverse emerging talent, including creators from Scotland, England and Spain, and you can read a little bit about each of them below.
