The upcoming comics magazine Good Boy! is framed by its creators as "the Shonen Jump of alternative comics" - and its first issue debuts this November. This creator-owned publication is currently raising capital on Kickstarter, and has already exceeded its $9,999 goal and is going through a series of stretch goals to expand the 194-page anthology.
"There really isn't a good place for the kinds of fun and high energy fiction comics we want to see, so instead of complaining on Twitter about it we decided to make our own Shonen Jump inspired serialized magazine for our favorite Alternative cartoonists!" writes the organizers.
Good Boy! #1 is scheduled to have work by Ben Poassmore, Benji Nate, Enrique Guerra, Sean Mac, Miranda Harmon, Michael Sweater, Dan Rinylo, Steve Thueson, and others.
