Well hello there, my inquisitive compadres!
Welcome to the brand new blog for Biomekazoik Developments - home to the 100% Biodegradable comics anthology, and the free online board game 'Board Horde'.
As time goes on I'll be using this blog to bring attention to upcoming strips in the anthology, highlight the works of various creators and give a behind the scenes look at the art, writing and editing process. And maybe, just maybe, I'll one day do an update for that pesky online board game of mine!
Currently the anthology has only been out for two months now, and we've already had masses of high quality submissions - some from newcomers, and others from seasoned pros (the web links to the right should give you an idea of some of the creators whose work will be appearing inside future issues).
If you happen to be a comic writer or artist who would like to get involved, then we're looking for 1-6 page self contained strips of a sci-fi/fantasy/horror/adventure nature. Preferably completed strips, though if you're a great artist looking for a writer or a great writer looking for an artist we may be able to pair you up with someone if your work is what we're after. Feel free to email us at: biomekazoik[at]gmail.com for more information.
I'd just like to say huge thanks to John Kirkham for doing such a marvelous job on the graphic design work for the covers and contents pages (and all the joyous admin work!), and to all the creators who have submitted work so far. The generosity of some of the professional creators who've taken time out of their busy schedules to rifle through their back catalogue of work at the insane whim of a bespectacled beard-sporting editor has been truly astounding. Cheers, chaps! That bar tab at the next comic convention I attend may bankrupt me, as it's growing with every favour...
Anyway, must get back to planning issue 3 (due out mid-March). Stay tuned as there's fun times ahead, people!
