Milford Green 172% Funded & Introducing Signal Comics…

Last night my first ever Kickstarter, Milford Green, was confirmed to be 172% funded with 376 backers reaching both of our stretch goals!

If you’re one of those backers, I’d like to thank you from the bottom of my heart. I’ve been blown away by the amount of support Milford Green has garnered, and I’m incredibly grateful for how much trust and belief you have put into me – I won’t let you down. Starting with backer surveys going out this afternoon (UK-time).

In my last update before the Kickstarter finish-line I mentioned that I’ve got an exciting announcement to make. Well, without further ado, let me introduce you to my new comic publishing company called Signal Comics. It’s early days, and for now I’ll only be using it to publish and distribute my own comics but in the future, if things go according to plan, I fully intend to shine a light on creator-owned comics. Check out the website and let me know what you think.

Finally, although the Kickstarter for Milford Green has come to a close, your fellow comic book buddies can either pre-order a digital or print copy through the Signal Comics website to get in on the Kickstarter print run before Thursday 31st May.

Thanks for reading 🙂 SGL

My First Kickstarter – Milford Green

Kickstarter Business Card - Front

Super excited and super scared is how I’m feeling right now. Over the past year I’ve seen some great comics on Kickstarter, and now I’ve decided that it’s high time that I take the plunge to put one out there myself.

Above, you can see a chap called Alfie Fairfield, who’s a socially awkward inventor living in the village of Milford Green. On one summer’s evening in 1897 a flying vehicle of some kind shoots across the sky and crash lands into a field. Being a curious fellow who is interested in any type of machinery, Alfie investigates to find out that we are not alone in this universe.

Milford Green is the complete one-shot story of what happened on that night in 1897.

I came up with the idea of Milford Green last summer. I was walking in the hills of Hampshire when a vision of an alien spacecraft shot across the sky right in front of me. I couldn’t get this image out of my head, and over the following months a story about where this vision came from formed in my head.

By November I wrote a script for the story, and by December I found an artist who is a perfect fit for the art of both the Victorian era and aliens.

Now without further adieu, let me introduce you to our artist Mikael Hankonen. Mikael is from Finland and is the creator of a fantastic webcomic called Year In Hereafter. You can check out more of Mikael’s work on his DeviantArt page here if you want, but below are a couple of stunning samples.

2 - Creative Creatures

1 - Victorian Scenery

As you can see, Mikael is able to draw both creative creatures and detailed Victorian scenery, which is absolutely ideal for Milford Green. With that in mind, here are our five main characters…

Those character cards give you a couple of clues as to what is to come but without giving too much away, here is what Mikael has to say…

“I joined up with Samuel to work on Milford Green as the artist after hearing of his intentions to mix sci-fi and Victorian history together. Being quite fond of both genres I was keen to be involved. During the conceptual process and planning I’ve found Samuel to be very professional and have enjoyed working with him. I can’t wait to draw these characters in action!”

As Mikael says I can’t wait to see these characters in action but that doesn’t come without some hard work first. Next Wednesday 31st January we’ll be launching the Kickstarter for Milford Green via my profile here.

So if you’re interested in seeing Victorians and aliens together in the same comic be sure to stop by my Kickstarter profile next week to find out more details, and if you think it’s any good feel free to support us in anyway you can.

Hoping to make my dream become a reality 🙂 SGL

A Work In Progress


My name is Samuel George London, and I’m a comic book writer.

Right now my titles only include RESILIENCE, a self-published zombie webcomic for the UK.

You can help support RESILIENCE by up-voting the issues on Steemit.

However, I’m working on lots of new ideas that will hopefully be published soon.
