A promising Kickstarter project, Magnet Comic is a magnetic board in the shape of a newspaper funnies strip.

One of the challenging aspects of drawing for comic strips is having to condense and downsize information and artworks within a limited space. Drawing comic strips from scratch thus becomes a tedious and cumbersome process, from creating the artworks from a blank plane, accounting for errors, to visualizing the text flow throughout the strip. To help aspiring comic strip enthusiasts, American artist and innovator Erik Heumiller has created Magnet Comic, a customizable comic strip that lets you create your own comics using up to 36 magnetic characters and a dry-erase marker. Each character has varying facial expressions that aim to capture a range of moods for appropriate dialogues. The artist can then craft the copy and match it with the corresponding character

Magnet Comic is inclusive  of a walnut wood comic strip with dry-erase panels, magnets on the back for mounting on a refrigerator or filing cabinet, a stand, marker and microfiber wipe. Each kit includes a basic pack of 4 characters, and each character has 9 different facial expressions. Since its launch on November 16th, Magnet Comic has gained a massive following with over 46 thousand US dollars of pledges, about seven times more than its target fund of USD 6,500.
