Media Release -- Indie Comics Magazine Editor Gary Scott Beatty recently announced Michael Marcus and George McVey will contribute a done-in-one space adventure to Indie Comics Magazine #2. The book is available ONLY through pre-order at your local comic book shop through February's Diamond Comic Distributors' Previews catalog.
Marcus and McVey are the Hamtramck Idea Men, a creative arts partnership whose projects range from the comic books Pulp Dreams and IF-X to game designing to the fine arts. Both organized the Southern Michigan Arts and Creativity Conference, a gathering of artists, writers, fashion designers, crafters, and musicians in the Detroit, Michigan area.
Marcus, as editor for IF-X, is known for putting creators in touch with each other and offering his diverse talents to make projects happen.
McVey's Pulp Dreams stories “Terra 2920” and “Portal Prime” are currently in negotiations over film and television rights. He takes commissions for custom silk-screening work and several upcoming books feature his illustrations.
"Michael and George are the very definition of indie," said Beatty. "They are prolific in their output, firm in their commitment to publishing and a key team to know if you're part of the Michigan independent comic scene."
Each issue of Indie Comics Magazine will feature full stories from many different independent comic book creators, said Beatty. Short biographies and contact information are included with the stories so readers can easily seek out more of the creators' work. More Hamtramck Idea Men information is online at idea-men.us.
