ALTERNA Comics does the Time Warp….

What a lovely  and brilliant idea all mixed into one. Basically this comic company is going to produce a line of comics that will feature”throwback style covers, a new logo, prices under $1.99 an issue, and the distant but familiar feel of newsprint.” It will feel like it just came out of a shop 30 years ago.

I have to admit I’ve not read any their work but I intend to change that very soon. I don’t usually like giving large amounts of quoted text but this warmed the Cockles of my heart.

Simeti not only aims to replicate the feel of yesteryear’s comic books, but also the pricing, “While most companies seem to be trying to out do each other with premium paper stocks and escalating price tags, we’re aiming to make comics affordable and bring back a practicality to single issues. We’re not in the business of making collectibles first and comics second.  These won’t be variant covers or variant issues, just basic comic books.  We’re happy to leave the premium paper stocks to our graphic novel line, which we will still be producing.  Right now, we’re aiming to launch this line with a few issues priced from $1 to $1.99, in Spring/Summer 2017.”

Fantastic news!!! Internet High- Five!!!
