Fiend Magazine comics section

[Could the moderators please move this to another section if it is inappropriate here]

Hi all.

Some of you know me, most of you don't My name is JAn and what's most germane for this forum is that I've just been made the comics editor for Fiend magazine, Australia's only dark and alternative culture magazine, with Australia-wide distribution through newsagents and specialty stores.

www.fiend-magazine.com

Fiend comes out quarterly, and the August issue is all locked up, but I'm looking for material for the issue hitting stores in November. I've made no firm decisions about the format or the content at the moment - I've been in the role less than a week - but I've got more than a few ideas about making the Fiend comics section as different and interesting as the rest of the magazine. I know that the print comics section will be complimented but

For now, you can send material you would like reviewed to:

JAn
c/o FIEND Magazine
PO Box 246
Northcote VIC 3070
Australia

(Of course sending said material does not mean it will automatically be reviewed, but not sending it in is a pretty sure-fire way of NOT having it reviewed.)

Material to giveaway to our readers is always appreciated, too.

As I said, I have no concrete shape for the comics section, but will try to be active here with updates and general contributions. Possibilities include interviews, art samples, short pieces, etc.

Any questions/comments: Private message or comics at fiend-magazine.com

Does anyone else think this job would really suit Chelsea Fritzlaff?

Hello Jan,
We are currently finishing up the media for the 24-Hour Challenge and would be looking to have a media release out shortly re: the winners and how this year???s challenge went. Mark is currently getting quotable quotes and other material from winners for this purpose. Would your mag be interested? Or is it just reviews?

It definitely won't be just reviews, but I'm not sure at the moment what format the section will take. The August issue is all locked up and since it's a quarterly, the next issue isn't until November.

That said, I'm hoping to have a sizable web component supplementing the magazine's content, and as such could probably find a place for your material there - and a much larger section than in the magazine which has quite limited space.

Andricon Girl: I'm the freaking editor and I reckon your piece would be cool! Maybe we'll have to pull out the pseudonymous big guns?!
