Pints of Cake is an idea of creating a large blog like site that would bring together a collective of Artists, Writers, Illustrators, Filmmakers and other creatives, and with them bring their own personal twist and style creating a varied and different look at pop and art culture today.

We’re currently running a Kickstarter to raise a very modest amount of money (only £110!) so that we can get hosting for the site and get it off the ground.

Even for the £1 donation you get a set of desktop wallpapers from several of the artists, including 6 from me! There are other very reasonably priced rewards such as packs of zines, drawn portraits and prints!

Your support would be very much appreciated!

You can also find us on Twitter and Facebook for updates and content and hopefully later, our own website!

I’m a filmmaker and will be contributing to this awesome new site for creatives and pop-culture junkies. You should throw money at them.

They’ll talk you through its origin, explain some of its biggest series (with the exception of Judge Dredd who will be getting his very own episode shortly) and discuss notable writers and artists who’ve risen through the ranks of 2000 AD. All that and an update on what’s happening in Comic Soc in the next few weeks.

Since I started this blog four years ago I’ve reported on problematic merchandise featuring DC Comics IP too many times to mention. And it seems to go the same way:

1. Post on item

2. Get worked over in comments, Twitter and comics forums by people stating one or more of the following:

For once DC seems to get something right. Shame it took so much to get them there.
