In these days we are redesigning our magazine and changing the content. This year we will focus 6 days of creation and first issue will be about God Created Light.

Our goal is to introduce independent comic book creators to the Diamond audience and beyond with 8-page, done-in-one stories, news release program, click through from our website, and video preview.

To receive pro-specific Indie Comics Magazine info beyond the fan info, join the Pro Email List:

You can opt out at any time.

The buy-in details and our numbers are under "Submissions."

Themed books work well for us -- Indie Comics Horror #1 is available from September's Previews NOW under Aazurn Publishing -- and a Christian-themed Indie Comics Magazine, or an Indie Comics Christian #1, would be super. I just need to line up 8 creators!

Read through "Submissions," then I'm here for questions!

Looking to publish my art in an organic form. Any idea of what a startup costs to get my work out there so I can budget?

K.J. Kolka's Long-Running Strip to Appear in the New Indie Comics Magazine

Indie Comics Magazine Editor Gary Scott Beatty recently announced K.J. (Kurt) Kolka's long-running comic strip The Cardinal will appear in an eight page story in the new comic book, scheduled for preorder in Diamond Comic Distributors' January 2011 Previews catalog and available only through Previews. The Cardinal began as a college strip in 1978.

"Kurt has a strong regional following and has been known in Michigan for over 30 years," said Beatty. "We're happy to show the rest of the world this popular indy strip." Indie Comics Magazine is 64 pages of the best story and art from today's independent comic book creators.

The Cardinal is the story of a group of people living in a fictitious university town whose lives are touched by an ordinary young man who believes he has been called to be a super hero. Kolka began dealing with real life social issues, the difficulties facing people and crime in this college strip in 1978. It ran as a regional print publication from 1990 to 2006 and debuted online at comicssherpa.com in 2007. Two live action film adaptions of the strip were released in 2004 and 2007.

Looking at Kolka's straight forward, retro art style, it's no surprise he lists comic influences from famous adventure strips like Mandrake the Magician, The Phantom, Annie and Dick Tracy.

"At its core, The Cardinal strip is about a man who sees people needing help and, unlike many of us, does not turn away," Beatty explained. "Kurt uses Golden Age super hero conventions and spiritual themes to pull this off in the strip, and it works with an emotional intensity not often found in comic books today."

Each issue of the new Indie Comics Magazine will feature eight full stories from eight different independent comic book creators, said Beatty. Short biographies and contact information are included with the stories so readers can easily seek out more of the creators' work. Full color strips of The Cardinal are online to view at TheCardinal.org.

Indie Comics Magazine is available only through the Previews order magazine at your local comic shop. The first issue premieres January, 2011. Find your local comic shop at 1-888-COMICBOOK (1-888-266- 4226) or online at http://www.comicshoplocator.com. Information about Indie Comics Magazine is online at http://indiecomicsmagazine.com.

DC's Zuda Artist Tom Kelly to Appear in the New Indie Comics Magazine

Indie Comics Magazine Editor Gary Scott Beatty recently announced nationally known cartoonist Tom Kelly will write and illustrate an eight page story titled Shadows of the Forest in the new comic book, scheduled for preorder in Diamond Comic Distributors' January 2011 Previews catalog and available only through Previews. The done-in-one tale features Kelly's character The Savage Samurai.

Kelly's children's web comic "The Stuffed Animal Sagas" appeared on DC comics' website ZUDA.com. "Indie Comics Magazine is 64 pages of the best story and art from today's independent comic book creators," said Beatty. "We're doing in print what DC attempted online: giving greater exposure to talented indy creators. And Tom's work is just phenomenal."

Kelly has produced graphic design and illustration for numerous design, production and toy companies, such as Spin Master Toys, Rittenhouse Archives, Topps, Hasbro, EA Sports, Wizards of the Coast and Mattel. His illustrations have appeared in Black Petals magazine, Star Wars Insider, Imagine Fx, Design Graphics, Tales of the Talisman, Thrasher, Wired and Time Out Chicago magazine.

The Chicago based artist has also designed posters and promotional art for Chicago bands Daemon Familiar, Unibrow and Moses Gun.

"Tom's style is beautifully balanced and intricate, with graceful line work," Beatty gushed. "We're very lucky to have him in the new Indie Comics Magazine." Kelly has won several awards, including the Wayne Wright Key for Excellence and the Pennsylvania Keystone Silver Seal.

Each issue of the new comic will feature eight full stories from eight different independent comic book creators, said Beatty. Short biographies and contact information are included with the stories so readers can easily seek out more of the creators' work. Kelly accepts commissions through http://tommm9.daportfolio.com.

Indie Comics Magazine is available only through the Previews order magazine at your local comic shop. The first issue premieres January, 2011.
