MAGIC BULLET is a free semi-annually published comic newspaper focused on presenting the work of independent and underground cartoonists, with a bias towards DC artists. Each artist is encouraged to take advantage of the larger canvas to cut loose and experiment and to push themselves and the medium.
MAGIC BULLET is distributed mainly in the greater Washington DC area. Copies are handed out for free at various comic conventions, including DC's Small Press Expo, Baltimore Comic-Con, the DC Conspiracy's own Counter Culture Fest, and many others. Copies can also be found in local comic shops, restaurants and bars. At least 1000 copies of the print run are designated to be handed out to MARC and Metro commuters on the first Monday or Tuesday following publication.
