 Hey good people!

My name is Terrell and I am an multimedia artist based in Detroit MI. About four years ago I created what I thought would be a fun way to stay connected to the world of comics. Sure we all love our Marvel and DC, but if you're a hard core fan, then you already know that there is so much more to this culture of ours today. In fact our once little clubhouse has become enormous!

The Magazine

Now a days there's just an endless amount of content from Comics to toys, movies and anime! An awesome abundance of content that has in fact created many talented Artist in the industry today. "That", dear friends is the very reason why "BAM" exists. Breathe again magazine has been a small local publication that showcases comic book creators, artist and talented cosplayers from all over.

Print, digital and Video

BAM is presented in three specific formats consisting of print, digital downloads and video. The printed version of the magazine is obviously the physical copy. However Bam can also be purchased and downloaded as a digital pdf file. With these two options we're able to give readers a look at amazing cosplay photography, interviews and previews of comics being produce by mainstream and Independent creators.

Our videos are primarily news coverage, weekly podcast that report all comic book related news from mainstream to indie comics.

What We Need

With your help we are looking to expand this labor of love. Issue 6 is currently in development and this time around we want to reach more people! As well as create more networking opportunities that will take us to the next level.

So to do that we need merchandise and the continued help of our spokes models/ cosplayers. The money raised here will help us acquire 500 physical copies to sell and promote over the next several months. As well as allow us to pay the awesome cosplayers and models who will go on this journey with us. The funds will also go toward setting up accounts with online distributors to give readers access to a downloadable, digital version of the magazine.

Breathe Again Magazine is preparing more then 10 appearance’s this year at various comic conventions, stores and events! By increasing our fan base and gaining more exposure this allows BAM to continue to cover comic book related news as well as produce our own content in the near future.

The Impact

The benefits of funding this project are huge! While BAM has been a local and independent publication thus far it has also been wildly successful. Issue 5 sold out of the first run the very first day at the Motor City Comic Con. I want to top that! Obviously our main allies lay within the cosplay community and for good reason, we consider cosplay to be a legitimate art form. While BAM is one of many publications casting a spotlight on cosplayers, we take pride in having a close relationship with all creators in the convention going atmosphere.

Risks and challenges

The risks are nearly nonexistent. The hardest part is creating the content, and that is already done. I've successfully self-published BAM before and I've put together a substantial amount of images, while building great content for the book. Not to mention I some how found time to create a few of the costumes for my models along the way.

However I'm reaching out because the challenge is in fact the scale of this project. The money I'm asking for finances the production of the book and will aid with promotional work to set the course for future BAM issues!
