the United States announced today that they have implemented a major
redesign of their Update Magazine.
³With all three of our shows, Comic-Con, WonderCon and APE, the
Alternative Press Expo, continuing to grow both in terms of size and scope,
it made sense to increase the amount of space in our magazine to highlight
all the cool things happening at each of our shows,² commented David
Glanzer, spokesperson for the non profit event.
The Update Magazine, which was printed three times a year and
distributed via direct mail to 150,000 recipients as well as 100,000 to
select comic book shops and specialty stores, will now be called Comic-Con
Magazine. The print run and distribution will remain the same.
Glanzer continued, ³Comic-Con Magazine will be standard magazine
size which allows us more room for content, photos and up to date
information on all of our events.² The inaugural issue features special
reports on Comic-Con, WonderCon and APE as well as exclusive interviews with
Comic-Con guests Bryan Hitch, and Rutu Modan.
Comic-Con Magazine will also feature contributions from leaders
in the comics and popular arts fields. Issue one of Comic-Con Magazine
features articles from contributors Mark Evanier, Shaenon K. Garrity,
Maryelizabeth Hart and Jason Thompson.
