Hi folks, we're here to tell you that we'll be rolling Bleeding Cool Magazine #18 into shops this week, an issue of the magazine dedicated to the people who have changed the direction of comics and continue to innovate and thereby shape our expectations every day.
Many of those people have, historically, operated as outliers, creating comics according to their own personal visions and taking cues from many different types of storytelling. Some have operated from within major publishers, winning over the mainstream with their commitment to the medium and enthusiasm for engaging the reader. Find out where innovation has come from and follow our guesses about where it's headed as we talk with current creators like Joshua Williamson on his wide range of works, colorist Dave Stewart talking about his art, getting in-depth with Matt Kindt on the scope of Mind MGMT, and much more, including a history lesson on indie and autobio comics from Dean Haspiel.
Welcome to the Innovation Issue, with an exclusive cover by Joëlle Jones for her series with Jamie S. Rich, Lady Killer, from Dark Horse.
Here are the full contents of this issue, out in shops on Wednesday:
