Our launch date is approaching steadily, but we’re well underway to hammering, moulding, shaping and cutting Outré into the perfect initial issue.
Our contributors are all hard at work and we’re seeing the end of a few of the stories already. We’ll continue giving you teasers and tastes here on the blog all the way up to the 4th of May.
Seeing as Outré is a non-profit, non-budget anthology with the aim to reach as many readers as possible – regular comic readers and specifically those who don’t read comics (or haven’t in years) – and bringing our talented artists and writers and their stories out into the world, we need some help from the guys and girls behind the almighty internet. Yup, that’s you!
Once you sit there with Outré, or stand on the bus with it, or lie in a tent, or bake on a beach, or wait in line, or ride your bicycle, or drive shotgun in a friend’s car and you’ve read it and enjoyed it, we want you to tell those on the bus about it, or that other guy in the tent, or those playing beach volleyball, or that woman in front of you in line, or the folks who help you back on your bike, or that friend. Or simply sharing it online. Word of mouth will be our fuel, but you’ll have to be our ignition.
If you write a blog or review comics, anthologies or books for a website or a magazine, don’t hesitate getting in touch and we’ll fix you up with a digital review copy as soon as it’s ready.
Here are a few previews of some of the stuff you’ll see in Outré #1:
That’s it for now, but remember we’re still accepting submissions for our 3rd issue and all artist are encouraged to get in touch to join Outré in the future. We’re already at work on issue 2 and have already been joined by a special writer for issue 3.
