We’ve been so incredibly overwhelmed at the response of folks to our global manga webcomic brand. SATURDAY AM. When we envisioned a more DIVERSE answer to the awesome manga imprints like SHONEN JUMP — we had no idea that EXCLUSIVE series like BULLY EATER, ISLANDERS, Z FOREVER and SAIGAMI would help us to gain such a following.
Equally surprising has been the response to fans and new indie creators who wish to JOIN OUR REVOLUTION. Our PILOT Manga competition has become very popular and helped us not only DISCOVER promising new talent but to DEVELOP them into stronger comics creators.
You’ve heard of our NEWEST TEST OF SKILL for up and coming creators — the EDITOR’S CHALLENGE where our crew of intrepid EDITOR’S try new small and FUN contests to help creators hone their artistic chops BEFORE they enter the far more complicated — TEST FLIGHTS? Well, that first one was for the budding WRITER’s online — now, we’ve got one for the ARTISTS and the best part…
it features a little series called:
