*Mock Cover of Erica Fett Issue - New Surprise Cosplay Reveal for the Cover of Issue #1 of C4 Magazine
*Mock Cover of Erica Fett Issue - New Surprise Cosplay Reveal for the Cover of Issue #1 of C4 Magazine

Much like The Avengers – C4 Magazine began as an idea. 

An idea that was meant to bring together a group of remarkable people and see if they could create something bigger than themselves. 

The reality however, brought together a rag-tag group of somewhat remarkable fans and industry professionals to create something our community has longed for, for years now: A magazine that not only delivers - content readers want – but one that portrays and highlights THE REAL community in a proper fashion. 

You see, many major publications nowadays find themselves under corporate control. 

While that may be beneficial for the financial side of things, it unfortunately leads to much of a magazine’s content being dictated by a board - usually disassociated with the audience they’re targeting. 

This leads to a disconnect with readership and eventually another failed magazine; adding to the narrative that magazines are a dying industry.

The truth is, magazines aren’t dying – they’re just evolving like the rest of the world. And the next stage of that evolution is called C4 Magazine.

C4 Magazine is a union of four parts – Conventions, Cosplay, Collectibles, Culture. Four categories that were, in most part, contained within the pages of their own publications.

BUT WHY? 

Why separate cosplay from conventions? Why talk about comic book movies without talking about…comic books? 

Yeah, we don’t know either. Which is why we’ve decided to change that. Not only for our readership, but for us as well. 

What separates C4 Magazine from the pack, is that each and everyone one of us on this team is not only an industry professional, we’re fans as well. Our Graphic Designer is a cosplayer and video game streamer – Our Editor in Chief is a life-long comic collector and tabletop gamer – Our Marketing Director has Star Wars quotes tattooed on himself and designs custom action figures – you get the idea. 

In addition to our nerdy leadership, we will also be working with some of the most revered and respected contributors in the business. From award-winning writers to the biggest names in cosplay and event photography, we’ve spent years curating relationships across all platforms of entertainment to ensure something special when we were finally ready to breathe life into this project. 

At this point, we’re hoping you are thinking to yourself ‘This all sounds great! But I wonder what sort of content they really plan to put in this magazine?’ Well, we can give you a little peek behind the curtain. While we don’t want to spoil ALL our plans we have in store, we can share a bit of information.

*This is a mock issue of the magazine, New Surprise Content to be Announced!

Just in our first issue alone, we plan to bring you things you’ve NEVER SEEN before in any other fan magazine. Not only do we have a couple celebrities lined up, and a slew of conventions that we plan to cover…but we will be introducing our audiences to FULLY transcribed convention panels, original fiction stories by award-winning writers, opinion pieces by a multitude of celebrities and influencers, as well onsite coverage from some of the biggest music festivals of the year. 

C4 will truly be a one-stop shop for all your fandoms. 

 *Mock Articles Issue - New Surprise Articles will be revealed for Issue #1 of C4 Magazine 

If you’ve stuck around this far, then it’s time for us to finally hit you with the pitch. At the core of everything here, we are a handful of nerds that have been fortunate enough to earn acceptance and respect in the beautiful industry of pop-culture. We’ve all worked alongside big name celebrities and have been lucky enough to impact some of the businesses we grew up loving. So, this project isn’t about us trying to fund some face time with high profile creators. 

This entire project, from the first word we ever spoke about it,was about giving people something that we ourselves would enjoy reading. 

We want to establish a brand that is known for delivering quality content and entertaining our audiences. We want to bring all these things to you because at the end of the day – we are you, and we know you deserve a magazine publication that has your interest at heart. 

The unfortunate piece of that scenario is that all those things cost money. And in order for us to fully be free of special interest investors, we need to reach out to you…our audience. 

We need YOUR help to get this brand off the ground and running. 

TIME TO LEVEL UP YOUR HERO STATUS!

 *Mock Issues below for reference - New Surprise Articles and Covers will be revealed for Issue #1 of C4 Magazine

This kickstarter is designed to produce enough copies of our first issue to sustain a second that would fund our third, and so on. The idea is to begin this title with four issues a year, and see where things lead us. 

Should we hit our funding goal of $20K early, we have a list of stretch goals lined up to help us ensure a large-scale distribution, bring in more contributors, and additional things for all people who back the project. Any money made within this kickstarter campaign will be directly invested into the C4 brand and not our pocketbooks. So, if you like what you see, and you want to be a founding member of this very special project, please consider making a pledge or sharing this campaign with your friends and family. 

TOGETHER, WE CAN MAKE THE DREAM COME TRUE!

Risks and challenges

When it comes to magazine publishing, there can be many unforeseen complications that delay shipments and change content. Contributor complications, talent contracts, mailing services, distribution center issues, editorial snafus -- these are risks we are familiar with and are mindful of when designing issues. nevertheless, from time to time these things can happen.

Please know that we are putting our best foot forward to steer the C4 ship away from these issues and have a solid plan in place to deliver you goods by our projected date. Backers are free and encouraged to contact us at info@c4mag.com with any questions and concerns they have concerning their merchandise and / or pledges.
