OCTOBER 2015 TEST FLIGHT RULES
It's been a few months...
We've run through some amazing new artists, new series and new projects but we're not done yet!
Saturday AM is rolling on like thunder (Issue #33 hits this weekend) and our hit manga webcomics like APPLE BLACK, SAIGAMI, SPOON, STORYBOOK and BULLY EATER have been joined by PILOT Manga alums like Leonardo Massip (ISLANDERS) and Frederick Ward (COMET MAN).
Not only is Saturday AM rolling on but we just brought back our sister magazine anthology, ala Shonen Jump, Saturday PLUS -- which profiles and provides a field test of the next great manga webcomics. PLUS now is carrying romance tale OTOME LIFE; spy/ superhero saga EXPLOSION JOE and more manga soon to come that feature DIVERSE global amateur talent.
Likewise, we've expanded our storefront into a Marketplace that includes the widest range of OFFICIAL SATURDAY AM PRODUCTS as well as new graphic visions from amateur talent.
now it's time for us to discover the NEXT SUPERSTAR. When we created PILOT Manga it was to help us allow for easier submissions from new talent into Saturday AM. We then created Test Flights as a means to deliver specific means to review and challenge the abilities of up and coming writers and artists. We knew that diversity works best when it's on display alongside of other entries.
After more than a year, we've discovered some amazing new creators and launched awesome independent comicbooks and webcomics.
We're producing a CHRISTMAS SPECIAL for the entire Saturday AM experience. The Christmas special will be a 50+ page book including NEW, ORIGINAL SHORT STORIES from creators ranging from Raymond Brown, Andrea Voros, Leonaro Massip, Whyt Manga and more!!
