Draw! magazine takes on a perfect topic for its audience of aspiring comic book creators: coverage of educational opportunities.
DRAW! 15 is the big Back To School issue! So you want to go to an art school that offers a degree or major focus on comics and cartooning – but which school is the right one for you? Are you a mainstream type, or the next Harvey Pekar? Either way, choosing the right school is important, and in this issue, Editor-in-Chief Mike Manley covers all the major schools who offer comic art as a major part of their curriculum, from the Center For Creative Studies, SVA, SCAD, the Joe Kubert School, and more! We dig down and interview the faculty, plus some students currently enrolled, as well as past graduates, to give prospective students the best overview to date of college-level comic art classes.
Due October 31 for $6.95 US.
Meanwhile, sister publication Write Now! makes an obvious tie-in:
Just in time for the new Fall TV season, WRITE NOW! 17 is a special HEROES ISSUE featuring secrets behind the hit series, the comics, and the website, from series creator/writer TIM KRING, writer JEPH LOEB, and many more of the creative minds behind the franchise that’s taken superhero fans – and everybody else – for the thrill ride of the decade!
Due October 24 for $6.95 US.
As I said, it’s an obvious choice to attract more attention, and magazines often grab at media connections. (Look at Wizard every other month.) I hope it brings them the attention they want.
TwoMorrows have a couple of other items due that month, as well, including the latest Modern Masters book, which will cover Frank Cho. I know they do these things based on who they think has enough fans to buy the books, but they’re going that modern, and they haven’t yet covered a woman?
