PiQ Magazine Out This Week

I’m really excited about the writing I’m doing for PiQ Magazine. I didn’t get a chance to talk about issue 2 (May), because it came out while I was at the NY Con, so I’m catching up. PiQ (pronounced “peek”) covers fan (I call it “geek”) culture and genre entertainment, including movies, video games, comics, and anime, with a positive perspective.

PiQ #2 (May) cover

In that issue, I interviewed Todd Dezago about Perhapanauts and wrote a review of Batman: Death Mask #1 (previewed in the issue as well). This issue also covers Torchwood, the Nana movie, Iron Man, game show fandom, and a BUNCH of other topics. (Those were only the four I was most interested in.)

The best part about getting my comp copies is that I look forward to reading the magazine despite being a contributer. I mean, I’d be checking this out even if I wasn’t writing for them. It’s so attractive and modern in design, it immediately begs to be grabbed and flipped through.

The next issue, June’s, is due out on Wednesday. There, I am very proud of my article on josei manga as well as my review of Life Sucks. Look for the Speed Racer M on the cover. Check it out and let me know what you think!

    Wow! I was just in NYC, saw this issue, had never heard of the magazine, and picked it up ( I actually picked it over the #1 issue, must have been attracted to your writing I did not know was within.

    This clinches it; no more money to Wizard Magazine. Period. End of list. With this, COMIC FOUNDRY and online sources, I’ll support these smaller, better done mags in a heartbeat.
    Good Job, Johanna, keep writing good stuff for them!

    I picked this up today, haven’t had a real chance to look at it yet though. Kind of curious to see what I make of it really.

    I haven’t been a video game person since my teens, and you can count the anime series I’ve seen on one hand. Still, it was kind of cool to see that they are based in Houston, TX which isn’t far from me.
