WELCOME TO MY SO-CALLED SECRET IDENTITY
MSCSI, created by Suze Shore, Will Brooker and Sarah Zaidan, launched online in February 2013. Issues 2 and 3, funded entirely by fan donations, followed later that year, with Issue 4 released in June 2014.
During that time, MSCSI has been acclaimed by the comics press and mainstream media, and featured in international publications like Ms Magazine, The Guardian, Times Higher Education, Femina and Stylist. Issues 1 and 2 were reprinted in a special issue of Geeked magazine, and in June 2014 the MSCSI creators joined the British Library's prestigious Comics Unmasked event, with Grant Morrison and Warren Ellis.
After a successful Kickstarter campaignÂ in July 2014, which raised over Â£10,000, we produced Issue 5 â€“ the final episode of this first volume â€“ and published the complete story in February 2015 as a collected, full colour, high quality print edition. We followed that success in June 2015 with a second, even more ambitious Kickstarter smashing our target at Â£13,000 â€“ enough for us to start work on Volume 2, and include new stories from previously-unpublished writers.
MSCSI Volume 1 is now sold directly throughÂ Rape Crisis, with all profit going directly to this important charity and its services.
We've come a long way, with your help. And with your help, we'll keep on going.
Suze Shore, Sarah Zaidan, Will Brooker and the rest of Team MSCSI
