Our 2020 Comic Anthology is Here!

This year, the SpiderForest Webcomic Collective challenged our members to tell us about secret places, both mundane and fantastic. They’ve come through with 17 brand new standalone short comics, from abandoned planets to fairies in the broom closet, melancholy dreams of missing family to lovers’ hideaways.  Quiet and strange, secluded and wondrous, and unexpected surprises of all kinds await in these pages!

Help us print our fourth comic anthology and join us on a journey to secret places, funding now through November 13!
