Saturday AM #5 is almost here and it signifies some major happenings!
First of all, Saturday AM promises to be one of our strongest issues, to date, that we have ever released. Never mind the fact that we've debuted TWO BRAND-NEW MANGA (Mikhail Dingle's Mythallica Lux Nova and Andrea Otilia Voros' SAIGAMI) during our first five issues and have NEVER MISSED OUR SCHEDULE.
Saturday AM has evolved greatly in just 6 months from being an idea from publisher Frederick L. Jones to being a brand entity that has truly resonated with hundreds of people around the world. It is AMAZING that we've come so far with our little staff but we have delivered some major moments:
- Debuted brand-new CONSISTENT content from red-hot creators like Whyt Manga (Apple Black) and Mario Savovski / Gemar Delfino (Race! On!) where previously these creators had gone up to a year (!) without consistent offerings.
- Produced one of the first digital magazines entirely focused on action manga webcomics and digital creators.
- Debuted our Youtube channel with but a handful of videos and yet over 200 subscribers
- Experienced huge monthly increases in web traffic as well as Facebook Fans and Twitter followers.
- Introduced an all-new manga brand, AFTERNOON WEB-X with explosive interest and popularity.
All along the way, YOU, our fans have stayed by us--so what's next?
Afternoon Web-X continues throughout the month with fantastic NEW DAILY CONTENT for STORYBOOK, ROUGH HOUSE and SPOON. Soon, we will add WANTED: DEAD or DEAD and SHAPESHIFTERS.
Saturday AM will finish the awesome Ken No Kendama by Rachelle Robin in issue #5 and then we are incredibly proud to announce that #7 of Saturday AM will debut a new PILOT Manga by Tony Saavedra and Rocky Garcia entitled the ARROGANCE OF ATHENA!
This is going to be one-hell of an action story with twists, turns and the incredibly smooth art of webcomic sensation, Tony Savvedra!
Also, expect a BRAND NEW ADVERTISING section for creators to advertise with us! Finally, the long-awaited launch of our ALL-NEW CREATOR SUBMISSION PROCESS!
So, why is this all being announced now??
AFTER MIDNIGHT ON SUNDAY 9th, 2014 OUR SUBSCRIPTION POLICY WILL CHANGE
We will no longer offer FREE DOWNLOADS to previous issues. Instead, new subscribers who subscribe AFTER the launch of Issue #5 will only receive that issue and will have to pay $1.99 for previous issues. This is due to timing and technology. We literally have so many cool and exciting new things happening that we CANNOT KEEP UP with managing previous download runs. $5.00 is an insanely low price for 20 issues of awesome comic content!
We hope that those people who support webcomics creators will help us continue to grow by paying $5.00 now to support our creators, growing infrastructure and brand new products and ideas!
