A quarterly comic anthology supporting independent artists!
Right now in America, comics are in a bit of a bad way. For up and coming artists, publishers almost don't trust them since they haven't been published yet. If new artists haven't already been published, it is hard for them to GET published, which is both strange, and wrong.
Additionally, comic publishers in America are looking for a certain STYLE of comics. They usually want super heroes. And there is nothing wrong with super heroes at all, I love them, I have a whole shelf full of books about them at home. But there are many artists who don't read those kinds of comics, or who don't draw in that kind of style.
We believe that there has to be dozens if not hundreds of artists and stories who simply cannot get published because they aren't a part of the mainstream "system" of comics today.
SEQAPUNCH! aims to change that.
We plan on publishing anyone, as long as they are talented. If someone comes to us with good art and compelling narrative, they will get published. All that matters is quality. Not style, not tone, but good, solid sequential art. SEQAPUNCH! will be a quarterly comic anthology celebrating the exploration of the medium, and raising new artists up high for the industry to examine.
We believe that this magazine benefits everyone. Independent artists get a place to show off their work without the rigmarole of normal publishers. Established veterans of the industry get somewhere to try out new styles and storytelling methods. And established publishers can use the magazine as a "who's who" of up and coming artists. Everyone benefits.
SEQAPUNCH! aims to send a fist straight to the back of the head of the American comics industry, and by donating, you can help us swing it.
