[[wysiwyg_imageupload:102:]]"Indie Comics Magazine is 64 pages of the best story and art from today's independent comic book creators," Editor Gary Scott Beatty announced today. "It's also a valuable resource for anyone interested in the world of independent comics."
Each issue will feature eight full stories from eight different creators, said Beatty. The first issue is scheduled for preorder in Diamond Comic Distributors' January 2011 Previews catalog and is available only through Previews.
"It's important to read done-in-one stories," said Beatty, "to get a feel for what these creators can do." Short biographies and contact information are included with the stories so readers can easily seek out more of the creators' work.
"The sheer number of comic books, graphic novels and online entertainment available today is overwhelming," Beatty explained. "We help readers cut through the reviews and hype to experience these creators' raw talent."
Indie Comics Magazine will present a variety of art styles and genres, said Beatty. "Adventure, superhero and ninja tales will appear side-by-side with comedy, romance and mystery. We plan a real variety show format." He laughed. "Just call me the Ed Sullivan of indy publishers."
