|Nix 8 Cover by Black Kirby|
There's still time this weekend to get on the action, and I highly recommend that you do so. Each issue of Nix Comics Quarterly is a delightful combination of strangeness, silliness, and moments that are scarier than you might expect from a mag that's got a lot of roots in homage/parody. Basically, the main Nix book is what happens when you read too many issues of Creepy and Eerie while listening to punk music. That's pretty much Ken Eppstein in a nutshell.

Here's Ken talking about the project, from the Kickstarter Page:
As always, Ken's tiers are amazingly well structured. For $4 + $3 shipping, he'll send you the comic itself, bright and shiny on nice paper (I've always been impressed by Ken's production values for a small publisher.) Go up to $16, and get all 4 comics Ken's published this year. For only $32, you can also get all eight issues of Nix Comics Quarterly together in a set. And of course, there are larger tiers, for those so inclined, like original art.

Ken only asked for $1000 on this KS, and he's up to $1300. It would be great to see him pad that total to ensure that Nix Comics can continue for years to come. If you enjoy horror, music, and indie comics, make sure you check this out--and back the Kickstarter, too, to get a cool Halloween treat--and that's no trick!
