Comic Foundry Rules

No time to do comic reviews this past week, but I do want to take a moment to praise the awesomeness of Comic Foundry Magazine. Issue #2 came out last week (this time in full colour!) and it is seriously great.

It's like if everything awesome about the comic book community came to life...and then maybe got cursed or something and became a magazine instead of a living thing.
Finally a magazine for smart, funny, cool comic fans!
The cover feature of the new issue is an interview with Matt Fraction...and, hey, putting an actual comic creator on the cover of a magazine instead of a picture of, like, Captain America?...nice one!
Also in this issue...
  • A fashion feature on how to get Jimmy Olsen's look!
  • An interview with Dinosaur Comics' creator Ryan North!
  • All-Star Batman & Robin drinking game!
  • Interview with Kristen Bell!
  • A Venture Bros. Article!
  • Album covers by comic artists!
  • A letter from me!

It's super great. Support this effort by buying at least one copy!

I couldn't agree more.
I got the subscription after the first issue came out.

an intelligent magazine about comics that doesn't talk down to you like you're a five year old that just pissed his pants in the frozen foods isle at the wal-mart!!

the hell you say!

how the hell did i miss issue #!?

and who was on the cover of issue #! anyway??

i guess issue #1 sold pretty well (and sold out probably!) if they're springing for full color issues already!

Darn it. I subscribed to this too, but my guys didn't pull it for me.

I shall have to inquire about this next week.

Aaaaagh, they so do not sell this in Prague! I don't suppose you could post the best bits for us poor suffering souls living in other countries? ::puppy eyes::

You should check out their website, rachel! It has lots of content.

You didn't mention my favourite part: that they're "the number one pop culture magazine for men AND WOMEN"! Ha!

Wizard, on the other hand, is the number one turd for idiots.
