"It's like Steampunk had a baby with Tales from the Crypt!" – Gary Buller



Reluctant writer and off-grid enthusiast. Known to be a decent editor. Hermit. Harumble!

Call for Cartoonists

We’re buying line art!

Inspired by  Inktober, we have decided that we need one panel comics and similar which speak to the retro-punker lifestyle.

$10 per piece. Paid via PayPal.

Art will be published in the thrice annual zine and Patreon feed only, and not on any freely available online resource.

Why? Because it’s cool! Because we don’t see enough of this stuff in print anymore.

Submit by sending to with the words LINE ART: Your Name in the subject bar.

Attach art as 300dpi jpg, gif, or png, no more than 3000px x 3000px. No more than three per email.

Open NOW and until we get more than we can deal with. Tell your artist friends.

HINT: We would need holiday related pieces NOW.
