August 16 Kelly Sue Joins Black Crown's "Hey, Amateur!"

Kelly Sue teams up with Becky Cloonan for a TOP SECRET how-to in Black Crown’s newest anthology series “Hey Amateur!”

[From the Kickstarter page:]ALL PROS, NO CONS! Top-notch writers and artists share hidden talents from the practical to the peculiar in a collection of 1-page comics.

Each story is part personal “how-to,” part “how-so.” Learn new skills or hone the ones you’ve got from “How to” use a knife like a French chef, create a talisman (& then destroy it), talk to a celebrity and more! Some of our 1-pagers will also illuminate aspects of the comic book storytelling process like writing, drawing, lettering, coloring and editing.

With over a quarter century of experience, award-winning DC/Vertigo and Black Crown editor Shelly Bond will wrangle an inventive assemblage of writers and artists from veterans to newcomers including Michael Allred, Gail Simone, Simon Bisley, Jill Thompson, John Allison, Liz Prince, Mark Buckingham, Magdalene Visaggio and others to be announced throughout the 30-day campaign.

The goal of HEY, AMATEUR! is to create a 128-page exclusive hardcover of 1-page stories that entertains, educates and empowers while saluting the artform we love. The plan is to give each story a spread of real estate so we can include the creator bios and a bit of extra info. The remaining pages will allow us to procure an introduction and an afterword from comics pros and experts from other disciplines. We also plan to run some process pages.  Our ultimate goal is 100 stories/224 pages so with any luck we’ll get there.”

Check out the Kickstarter page for more information. The campaign is all-or-nothing and concludes on Saturday, August 31st at 9AM PDT.
