Official Press Release
Atlanta, GA -- The 2006 edition of "Prism Comics: Your LGBT Guide to Comics" becomes available in comic book stores and other specialty book stores this week. This collection is a resource to lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender members of the comics community, containing exclusive comics features, articles, columns, and more, topped by a cover by fan-fave Joe Phillips!
The 2006 Guide is 144 pages, including 37 pages of comics (by Justin Hall, Rivkah, Abby Denson, and others), an exclusive "Queer Eye on Comics" look at Batman and Robin, feature articles and interviews (spotlighting Devin Grayson, Ismael Alvarez, Terry Moore and others), and 42 pages of creator profiles. All for a cover price of only $5.95!
For the first time, Prism Comics also features content from a major publisher: Editor Shaun Manning worked with DC Comics to include an excerpt from the multi-award winning WildStorm comic "Ex Machina," by Brian K. Vaughan, Tony Harris and Tom Feister.
"This year's Prism Guide has a bit of everything, from outrageous satire to heartfelt confessions." Manning said. "We've added a bit of international flavor with pieces by Lawrence Schimel, and welcomed manga into the fold. Prism Comics 2006 includes work from some fan- favorite creators doing work of interest to LGBT readers, and we also spotlight some up-and-coming artists you may be discovering for the first time."
