Media Release — The first issue of Indie Comics Magazine can now be preordered in Diamond Comic Distributors’ January 2011 Previews catalog. The book, said Editor Gary Scott Beatty, is available ONLY through Previews.
“We aren’t printing a stack for resale online,” said Beatty. “January’s Previews is the ONLY way comic readers and comic shops will be able to get their hands on issue one.” The book is listed under Aazurn Publishing in the comic section.
“We’re different than other books,” Beatty explained. “We feature done-in-one stories so readers can get a feel for what these creators can do. Short biographies and contact information are included so readers can easily seek out more of the creators’ work. These details make Indie Comics Magazine a valuable resource for anyone interested in the world of independent comics.”
Indie Comics Magazine is 64 pages of the best story and art from today’s independent comic book creators, said Beatty. “The first issue proves that assertion with a talented lineup that reads like a who’s who of the indy comic movement.” Appearing in issue one is Tom Kelly (DC’s Zuda), Tim Vigil (Faust), David Branstetter (Straw Man), K.J. Kolka (The Cardinal), Gary Scott Beatty (Jazz: Cool Birth), Anthony Cacioppo (Kaso Comics), Terry Cronin (Students of the Unusual) and Douglas Paszkiewicz (Arsenic Lullaby). The cover to #1 features a full color painting by Marcus Boas (Heavy Metal).
The number of comic books, graphic novels and online entertainment available today can be overwhelming to a casual reader, said Beatty. “We help readers cut through the reviews and hype to experience these creators’ raw talent.”
Beatty said he’s pleased with the variety of art styles and mix of genres in Indie Comics Magazine. “We were lucky to land different creators with a diverse range of storytelling styles. This is a real cross section of indy comic book genius!”
Indie Comics Magazine is available ONLY through the January Previews order magazine now at your local comic shop. Order Code is JAN110879.
