Atomic Comic Is Launched

Today the first issue of Atomic Comic is released, the fanzine Harry Rickard and I have been working on for almost a year. It was put on the 'indefinite hiatus' back in April due to exams and was only picked up again in December because I was reading about other comic fanzines from years past somewhere (can't remember where now).

Anyway, the front cover is above, and yes - it is 100% free! It is published through Issuu, which is a free digital publishing company and is a chunky 36 pages (originally going to be 32, but we put it up at the last minute)!

Admittedly, there are a few spelling mistakes in the fanzine, but even though I read and re-read it a dozen times they still managed to slip through! 

Despite that though, I hope you enjoy it. I've worked pretty hard  over the past few weeks getting this issue ready for January, so am pretty chuffed I managed it!

You can read the fanzine here:

It was great! The interviews were great and so was the rejected and everything was good. When will issue two be out?

I'm glad people like it, we've recieved a lot of positive feedback! :)

I'm planning to release issue two next month. The front cover is finished as well as 16 inside pages!

Well congratulations on finishing it! Design-wise, it looks nice, but I can't read a magazine on a computer screen - is there a way to download it to stick it onto a tablet or something?

You can read it on the internet on a tablet, just as you would on a computer. If you want to download it, click on the download icon (an arrow on a box) underneath the magazine. Its the one on the far right.

I hope you enjoy it!
