This is exciting! Ryan McCracken of Boss Nacho productions attended our launch party for the anthology on April 23rd. As part of his Indy After Dark series, he put together a short video featuring our new book with clips from several of our group’s artists.
You can see the video on his site, on youtube, or right here on the IWG website. Just click the menu above where it says IWG Anthology. The book can be purchased right here off our site, anywhere it says SUPPORT IWG Buy Now in the sidebar beneath a picture of the anthology cover.
$15 plus shipping will get you 148 pages from 19 different artists, spanning most genres from Slice of Life to Sci-fi and Noir. This is an self-published anthology, printed through Lulu.com, so you can count on the quality and workmanship associated with Lulu.
Here’s the video. We hope you enjoy it and decide to support independent comics.
I was asked a few questions about our art show, our new comic anthology and webcomics in general by good friend Gary Weir. You can read the article here.
Thanks for the heads up Gary!
A REMINDER: Don’t miss our show on Friday the 23rd. Welcome to Indiana: A Comic Anthology goes on sale, see artwork on display by 13 different local comic artists and participate in a live drawing event with models from the Creme De Les Femmes Burlesque Troupe, dressed up as super heroines. Then music starting at 10pm, The Dirty Thirty, Beta Male and Destination: Earth!
$6 at the door.
It’s hard to sum up our art show happening April 23rd at Local’s Only Art and Music Pub. There’s so much going on at this event. We of the Indy Webcomics Group are releasing our anthology, a collection of comic art and short stories entitled: Welcome to Indiana. The show also launches our display of comics and art which will stay up at Local’s Only through the end of May.
Lady Lenore Evermore and The Creme De Les Femmes Burlesque troupe will be hosting a Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School event, anyone can participate in. The Femmes models will be dressed in super hero garb, and prizes will be given out, donated by Hero House Comics.
The show will be $6 at the door. Free goody bags will be given to attendees courtesy of Hero House Comics.
This kind of event is a first for us but most likely not a last. There’s something in the mindset of local artists and local musicians that both groups share in common. They occupy overlapping circles of creative energy and interests. The combination of the two, with live art models and costumes and prizes is a no-brainer.
For more information, contact our group organizers.
The Indy Webcomics Group will soon be releasing a new comic anthology filled with short stories and artwork from all local artists and writers. The book is expected to be released officially on April 23rd.
Here’s the blurb from the back cover:
“The Indy Webcomics Group was founded in 2007 as a vehicle to connect and promote Indiana’s independant comic scene. IWG is comprised of a diverse group of comic book artists and writers living and working in Indiana.
2010 sees IWG expanding with new blood and new goals, the first of which is this collection of comic art and short stories. Welcome to Indiana is an eclectic mix of styles and genres reflecting the authors’ many influences in today’s graphic media ranging from animation and Manga to the Golden Age of comics.”
We’ll be announcing on this blog as soon as the book is available to buy. And leading up to the book’s release we may post a sample page or two to tease and entice you.
PS. With this post we officially re-launch indywebcomics.com with an updated look and lots more new content on the way.
