So, I decided to mock up a cover for Torchlight. I think it looks damn inspiring myself. As for the featured articles listed, they probably will be regular features by James and I.
Now, the color adds punch, even to what is otherwise B&W art. Needless to say, I like the idea of color and B&W mixed.
I am floored by the interest we have for submissions. I wish I could name drop - heh. We'll definitely have some guidelines ready by the first week of April, if not sooner. Bear with us. Gary Con is next week.
We are also discussing format. 16 to 20 page zine or 32 to 40 page or so magazine. Going the magazine root would mean POD and probably full size pages as opposed to booklet. It also gives the opportunity to use color not just for the PDF but print copies also inside and out.
So much to discuss at Gary Con...
In the end, the community will have a direct voice, because magazine size will need more content than a zine and that content will need to be borne in large part by the community. In the meantime, I'll be working on some more "Pocket" releases to get my layout chops in order ;)
