Gold Digger Will End With #300- Antarctic Press October 2021 Solicits

Gold Digger is a comic book series published by Antarctic Press, and written and drawn by Fred Perry from 1991 until 2022 – when it seems, his final, 300th issue will be published. A cross between Indiana Jones and Final Fantasy, it was conceived by Perry during his tour of duty in the First Gulf War. Antarctic Press published a Gold Digger one-shot in 1991, with a four-issue limited series following in 1992 and 1993. This was then followed by a regular monthly black-and-white series, and finally, the current colour series beginning in 1999, with a variety of spin-offs over the years. Gold Digger focuses on the adventures of Gina Babette Diggers, polymath superscientist, archeologist, teacher, adventurer, nerd, and idealist extraordinaire, accompanied by her colourful extended family, friends, students, and acquaintances, as she explores the strange and ancient hidden histories of the world, spanning a wide distinctive variety of characters, stories, environments, worlds, societies, times, species, and universes of magic and science fiction, in a world filled with possibilities. In October 2021, Antarctic Press will publish Gold Digger #290, promising ten more issues – and that's that. Doing the Full Cerebus. Here's the solicitation, and everything else Antarctic Press has for October 2021's solicitations.
