THE ACTIVATECOMIX 6TH ANNIVERSARY NEW WAVE.
05:28pm / Feb 20, 2012
ACTIVATEcomix Celebrates 6th Anniversary with 2012 Wave of New Comix + Return of Old Favorites
http://ACTIVATEcomix.com
http://twitter.com/ACTIVATEcomix http://Facebook.com/ACTIVATEcomix


To celebrate its 6th Anniversary as the premiere webcomix collective / creator-owned FREE webcomix anthology, ACTIVATEcomix announces 2012 Wave 1 featuring the return of favorites like VULCAN & VISHNU by Leland Purvis as well as the ACTIVATEcomix debut of creators such as Igor Kordey with his original series THE TEXAS KID.
For six years, ACTIVATEcomix has featured original, serialized graphic novels, updated daily. ACTIVATEcomix selects artists to produce their signature work without editorial oversight and offer their personal comix for free to an ever-growing audience of loyal readers. ACTIVATEcomix is also known for having lifted the veil between creation, creator, and reader by providing a forum for spirited dialogue between audience and auteur.

ACTIVATEcomix 2012 Wave 1 Schedule:

Monday 20th February

PREGNANT BUTCH by A.K. Summers, continues it\'s true life exploration of love, life and pregnancy from the P.O.V. of a butch lesbian. A.K. is a new, fascinating voice and her work is both witty and wise.

SAM & LILAH by Jim Dougan & Hyeondo Park picks up its fractured love fable after a year\'s hiatus, with Chapter 4. This is probably the most beautiful comic on the web, no kidding.

VULCAN & VISHNU by Leland Purvis. The travels and travails of two honest workmen making their way around obstacles and through calamities on their way to fortune and glory. Purvis creates the purest form of comics you will ever see. For years we used Vulcan & Vishnu as our example of everything we wanted to achieve with ACTIVATEcomix.

Tuesday 21st February

THE CARTOON BOY ADVENTURE HOUR by John Kerschbaum. A gleeful, freewheeling, absurdist romp. Kerschbaum is a terrifying, implacable, force of funny!

Wednesday 22nd February

THE FIST by Darryl Cunningham. A satire of extreme right wing superheroics. New work from Darryl is always a reason to celebrate, especially as he is very much in demand at the moment. His follow up to PSYCHIATRIC TALES entitled SCIENCE TALES, LIES HOAXES & SCAMS is available from Myriad Editions this summer. His UNCLE BOB book will also be out this summer. Frankly, we\'re happy he had the time.

THURSDAY 23rd February

THE REVOLUTION WILL BE TELEVISED by Dov Torbin continues. A frank, smart and self aware piece of comics reportage from the heart of the \"Arab Spring\" of 2011.

Friday 24th February

THE GOLEM\'S VOICE by David Klein . A powerful childhood fable set during the Nazi occupation of Poland by highly respected Wall Street Journal and New York Times illustrator David Klein. Oh, and he also used to draw Batman. David is new to ACTIVATEcomix and we are thrilled that he brought this story to us.

THE TEXAS KID by Igor Kordey. A new, original and personal work from the prodigious and prolific Igor Kordey . This is the first webcomic from the Croatian artist who has drawn such diverse comics as the X-MEN, SCALPED and the award winning SMOKE (with Alex DeCampi). This story will be simultaneously told in three languages (English, French & Croatian) which is a new thing for ACTIVATEcomix, but something that we plan to do a lot more of in the coming years as we take advantage of the international platform the web provides.

The ACTIVATEcomix collective was founded in 2006 by Dean Haspiel as a curated community for comics storytelling on the world wide web. ACTIVATEcomix is a venue for established creators to experiment and make their own signature works, but is also a supportive environment for emerging talent- somewhere between a storytelling laboratory and the Sunday funnies. Since then ACTIVATEcomix has grown into a community of over 50 comics creators who have created thousands of pages of original creator-owned comics, and have been nominated for dozens of industry awards (including the Eisner, Harvey, Ignatz and Xeric Awards). In 2009 ACTIVATEcomix and IDW Publishing launched THE ACTIVATE PRIMER, which was featured in The New York Times’ 2009 Holiday Gift Guide, and was picked by legendary independent bookseller Politics and Prose among its “Favorite Graphic Literature of the Year” for 2009. In his foreword to THE PRIMER, critically-acclaimed writer Warren Ellis puts it simply: \"ACTIVATE makes comics better.\"

We hope you\'ll agree. Thank you for your attention.
