The Beginnings of Beginnings

Hey folks! It's your old pal Rob here to drop some history on you.

The idea of an anthology had been in my mind since I first took over the Canberra meet ups (a long time ago), however it was often met with lethargy and apathy whenever brought up... UNTIL!

At a meet up 2 months ago, I produced a copy of 21 Journeys from Cloudscape Comic Society. I'm not sure what happened but the air was suddenly electric, pulses were racing, and enthusiasm was so high a barometer in the background literally burst*. There's a good crew at these meet ups; fresh faces, regulars to be depended upon, and most importantly talent. With the amount of pencil flair, word verbosity, and sheer awesome around the table every month, we knew we could put something like this together. It just took seeing others doing what we should have done to make us launch a call to arms.

It started around the table. Each man and woman was keen, then we took it digital. Email and Twitter provided us with roundtable discussions of what we would do, how we would do it, what we would be wearing while we would do what we were doing.

The foundations were laid. We knew what we wanted to create (a kick arse comic anthology) and we knew how we wanted to do it (???secrets???).

Don't forget, if you want to be a part of this, don't hesitate to check out the submissions post and join in the fun!
