About ShortBox

Hello! My name is Zainab Akhtar, and I'm founder and publisher of ShortBox.

ShortBox is an independent comics publisher with a unique model: we publish new comic books via a mail-order box! The books are also available individually (via our webshop) once the box has been released. Our aim with publishing comics is simply to contribute to and expand the definition of this medium we love: we want to provide a space for interesting work, strong work; fresh ideas and voices. Since 2016, ShortBox comics have spanned a litany of genres: horror, romance, sci-fi, fantasy, fable, slice-of-life, humour, instructional, auto-biographical and beyond, from all around the world. We have been nominated for multiple awards- and even won some!

The aim of this Patreon is a bid to support our publishing, and to help bring even more comics into the world. The comics created for this Patreon are currently paid for upfront- if we gain enough support, the hope is that the comics will then be funded directly by the Patreon, which would be great. 

There are 2 straightforward pledge levels: $1 and $3 (you can pledge more if you want). The $1 tier gets you access to first look previews of ShortBox books, behind-the-scenes and 'what we're reading' posts, news of upcoming projects, and so forth. The $3 tier gets you all that AND access to a brand new 8-page comic every fortnight! These comics are exclusive to Patreon. Depending on how the Patreon progresses, we may add further tiers; something I'd love to do is have a higher pledge tier to commission small items specifically for those who pledge at that level. 

If that sounds like something you'd like to support and see flourish, then a small, regular commitment would mean a great deal. Thank you!
