New stretch target

With the extra income, we can reach more people and add on more fringe events. We'd also like to host our annual SICBA Comic Book Awards, marking the 10th and 11th Awards and a Kitchen Disco.

If we hit £6000 we'd be able to add some extra events.

Cloud Comic Con will be a virtual comic con, bringing together audiences from Glasgow Comic Con, Edinburgh Comic Art Festival, and Rai Con all into one online space. It will include a series of talks, panels, and a virtual artists alley to promote the works of independent creators.

Our project is part of the Creative Scotland Crowdmatch - we are 1 of 20 shortlisted creative projects in Scotland - that have the opportunity to win a share of £75,000 in match funding, up to £10,000 per project.

Special guests will include J.M.Demattis (Justice League Int, Batman), Tillie Walden (On a Sunbeam), Charlie Adlard (The Walking Dead), Shazleen Khan (Buzza), Dave Cook (Killtopia), Claire Lim (Wee Claire) and Frank Quitely (Jupiter’s Legacy) plus many more TBA.1616158213_guests_folder_screen_wave_1.jpg

1616065405_ccc_header_money_for.jpgThe money will help us:1616069491_ccc_pie_chart1.jpg

a) pay all the contributors an appearance fee, and

b) pay for technical requirements to run the event - pro software, editing, sound, and production.

Any leftover will go towards future events.
1616065392_ccc_header_why_fund.jpgWe wanted to make something that was free and accessible for all of our audiences to say thank you, hang in there, and that we will all be back together in real life soon. We also wanted to reach out to new fans and a worldwide audience who can share our love of comics, anime, and pop culture fandom. 2020 has been a devastating year for our events, and this money will help us stay in touch with our event attendees for the future.

1616065382_ccc_header_the_rewards.jpgWe wanted to give you something digital and tangible as rewards, but don’t worry, you’ll get access to the online events regardless of what level you pledge. But if you want to get yourself some cool books or merch, please consider backing a higher pledge. Thanks!
