Comix and the Cities
There's an excellent essay on comics professionals from the Twin Citieshere
. Our states notable alums include Sandman scribe Neil Gaiman, Lucifer artist Peter Gross, and others.
It also has an awesome small press scene, as we discovered last year when we did our first Comix Issue as well as when we worked with Kevin Cannon of this Rock Atlas, which recently won an innovation award from the Association of Alternative Weeklies.
So I'm happy to announce that we're making the Comix Issue an annual event. We are currently accepting submissions for the Comix Issue 2, which will be published July 9. Interested artists should contact Art Director Nick Vlcek. This year's theme: When The Republicans Come to Town.
