WARRIOR27 2005 (issue #1)
“A combination of comic strips, prose fiction and criticism, this is mainly notable for a good profile of cartoonist Scott Morse and an amusing column called ‘I hate Brian Michael Bendis.’” - Steven Grant (Permanent Damage)
“I thought the best feature in the magazine was the retrospective on Scott Morse, and I'd be curious to see future spotlights on other cartoonists,” and “the rant on Brian Michael Bendis was pretty funny.” - Alex Robinson (Too Cool to be Forgotten)
Our initial foray into self-publishing, Dan and I had discussed creating our own anthology for years that would include whatever interested us – comics, prose, even stories in script form. We had big ideas and were definitely reaching “beyond our grasp.” But at least we had aspirations, and at least we got it done, and – most importantly – at least we learned from the experience.
In this first issue you’ll find the initial chapters of two very different “sci-fi” serials – which Dan and I shelved for various reasons – a prose piece set in ancient Japan based on Andy Lee’s amazing cover painting, a humorous story in script form relating how we might have financed this venture, a profile of cartoonist and Pixar animator Scott Morse, and Dan’s first “I Hate Brian Michael Bendis” rant with tongue firmly planted in cheek.
We’ve come a long way since first deciding to create Warrior27 (an homage to Britain’s classic anthology, Warrior magazine), and I hope you will forgive our first faltering steps as we crossed the threshold from fans to creators. Priced @ $3.00, take a chance and get it for half price by clicking the button below, and there’s no shipping fee. OR if you want to stretch your Yanqui dollar, order one of our later issues (see the sidebar) and get a free copy of this issue (no need to click the button for this one when you order later issues, we'll throw the book in with your order, you needn't do anything else). How can you beat that deal?
