Our vacation away from blogging is now over and we’ll get back to our regular program with one post per week. Showcasing anything related to Outré, our contributors – or just stuff we like to highlight. And of course, we’ll start drip-feeding you content for our next issue, which launches in December, and introducing our contributors.
But before that, let’s look back at Outré #1, which is still available for free, and always will be. Here are three preview pages from each of the four stories we had in #1.
The Most Dangerous Place for Children by Ronald Montgomery (writer), Jim Giar (art), Tim Switalski (colours) and Rafer Roberts (lettering).
My Universe Expands Until I Have No Center by Alex Wilson (writer/letterer) and Ben Garriga (art).
I, Icarus by Glenn Arseneau (writer/letterer) and Valentin Ramon (art).
Taras and the Monolith by Dan Hill (writer) and Kim Holm (art/lettering).
Although all these stories deal with responsibility in some shape or form, they are quite style and subject matter. The rest of these four stories, plus great stand-alone artwork by Jelena Đorđević, Aleksandar Božić Ske, Cécile Brun and Brian Gilman & K. Michael Russell, and an interview with both Fiona Staples and Alex Wilson can be found in Outré #1.
So if you haven’t already, do head on over to our download page and get your preferred version. CBZ, CBR or high and low resolution PDFs.

After the 12th of September we will be closing the story submission gates for our second issue, about “hopelessness”.
We’ve already received a lot of pitches but there is always room for more! We will be going through the submissions after the 12th and none have been read (or picked) so far, so entering late in the game does not lower your chances. All pitches will remain unread until the 13th.
We hope to get back to all of you within a week or two after the deadline.
If you just became aware of Outré head over to our submission guidelines and start hacking away at that pitch!
And for all you artists, you can submit your artwork for our single page illustration section. Read over the submission guidelines and get involved if you are confident in your craft.
As for the sequential story artwork we are actively headhunting at the moment to find styles that suit our four stories for our initial issue. But… if you’re confident you’ve got what it takes, you can send us a link to your online portfolio and we’ll be in touch if we find a match.
We have already locked down a few interesting and diverse artists which we can’t wait to show you all. Snippets and previews soon.
All the best,
Magnus & Glenn
