O hai! Again! Yup, that’s right – the brand new issue of A Comic Monthly is here. #1, the grand premiere, etc. As last time, we’re so proud of the stuff people willingly gave up for this issue (the submission process is a long and painful one, involving deep wells of fire and weird upload services). Packing 70 pages, a world record for us, and in a brand new color compared to last time. The contributors to this issue are, in order of appearance : Elliot Alfredius, But the Prom Is Tomorrow, Niclas Boman, Patrick Ryan Crotty, Olle Forsslöf, Jane Mai, Emilie Lindquist, Emanuel Garnheim, Maré Odomo, Luke Maxwell, Emelie Östergren and Roman K. Muradov. OK, now download it, spread the word, enjoy, enjoy, enjoy. And enjoy. XOXOXOXO.
A Comic Monthly is a free monthly comic book OPTIMIZED for computers and handheld devices (in other words, they are digital files). You can download the files here, if you didn't already notice, there are a few buttons up there somewhere that you can click on.
We are very proud to present a majestically wide range of artists from all over the globe pushing all different types of styles. The one thing that they have in common is that they are great, which is pretty cool. You can read more about them in each issue.
This is our first try ever at this, so please bare with us. We're sure it, from a technical standpoint, will only get better from here.
If you want to get in touch with us, or are interested in submitting work, we'll gladly check it out. Drop us an internet line at email@example.com.
Would you like to subscribe to the magazine? It's like subscribing to a real magazine only you get each issue delivered to your internet mailbox instead of your IRL one! Do that here!
So you have two choices here right now. In the future probably more. But right now, two different file types, same comics though. PDF or CBZ! Here is corresponding information for each separate choice.
This is almost for beginners. You can download this file, and read it on your regular computer with any old PDF viewer. For mac users, it's probably going to be Preview. For windows. we honestly don't know. Tell us if you have any ideas. You can – and should! – read these through iPad & iPhone's iBook reader. Just go into iTunes —› File —› Add To Library. It should end up in the "books" section. Upload it to the device and open it up with iBooks! Very versatile!
CBZ is the coolest file. CB stands for comic book and the Z stands for zomg. To open these files, you should be using a comic book reader program. For Mac, we warmly recommend using Simple Comic because its so nice. You should also donate to the developer if you really like it. He's a good dude. For Windows we've heard that Comical or Comic rack is pretty good. Yup! Once you have installed the program, just open up the .CBZ files! It's that easy!
In due time, A Comic Monthly will be available in a really cool HTML version. Probably when the next issue drops, or the one after. But. That's THE FUTURE. And not now.
Next issue, #2, out sometime during summer. Check out issue #0 here. Subscribe above. Kthx!
