They say all good things must come to an end. Alas, this is also true with the World’s ONLY 200 page print-only hardcover magazine – FULL BLEED, at least this version, is coming to a close with its final volume, THE END.

But we may just have saved the best for last! Here’s just the beginning: Part two of Rolling Stone’s Gavin Edwards lost and unpublished Grant Morrison interview, The final two chapters of Phillip Kennedy Johnson and Steve Beach’s epic “The Lost Boys of U-Boat Bremen,” an epic appreciation of legendary artist George Pérez by The New York Times’ George Gene Gustines, a long interview with Cindy Whitehead, the world’s first female professional skateboarder, by Shelly Bond…and that’s just for starters! THE END includes more of the fine mix of fiction, interviews and comics you came to expect in the first three volumes of FULL BLEED.

Comic Veterans are Uniting for the “Give Comics Hope” Fundraiser

Give Comics Hope is a new charitable initiative and has put out a call for public donations alongside high value, unique items donated by industry professionals to support two upcoming charitable auctions. The initiative was created by and headed by comic book industry veteran Bill Schanes and designed for all members of our community to rally together to provide vital aid to comic book stores, the heart, and the roots of our vibrant comic book community.

Give Comics Hope is an ambitious charitable initiative created in response to the financial impact created by the current global health crisis on the pivotal small businesses at the center of the comic book industry – comic book shops. Created by and spearheaded by former Vice President of Purchasing of Diamond Comic Distributors and co-founder of Pacific Comics, Bill Schanes, Give Comics Hope is supported by a group of current and former comic book industry professionals, who have all donated their time and resources to initially bring two auction initiatives to life.
 
Give Comics Hope’s initial charitable efforts will be focused on two auctions designed to raise an initial slate of funds to be distributed to comic book stores in early 2021. Give Comics Hope is calling on publishers, creators, retailers, fans, convention organizations, printers, media, and indeed every member of the community to unite together and give back to comic book shops by donating premium collectibles from their personal collections to two upcoming charitable auctions. 

The first auction will be conducted by Heritage Auctions, the world’s largest collectibles auctioneer, for all received donations with an estimated value of $500 or more to take place between Wednesday, October 28, 2020, and Wednesday, November 11, 2020. The initial auction will include donations from industry insiders including cover art from The Walking Dead donated by Image Comics partner Robert Kirkman, paintings by legendary artist Bill Sienkiewicz, Star Wars original art by award-winning artist P. Craig Russell, original art from New Mutants #88 by Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld, original art from X-Factor #55 and Amazing Spider-Man #326 signed by New York Times bestselling artist Colleen Doran, Excalibur #125 original art signed by Dave Hoover, and many, many more. Public donations for the first auction are due by Friday, October 2, 2020.

The second auction will be conducted by Jesse James Comics/Comic Book Shopping Network in partnership with eBay. All public donations with an estimated value of $499 or less will be offered through public auctions and “Buy It Now” opportunities on eBay between Wednesday, November 11, 2020, and Friday, December 11, 2020. Public donations for the second auction are due by Wednesday, November 4, 2020.

Give Comics Hope has partnered with the Book Industry Charitable Foundation (Binc), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to assisting comic retailers and booksellers, to oversee the management and disbursement of the funds raised by Give Comics Hope. The initiative will take no organizational fees, and will only deduct any actual, direct costs incurred from the funds raised. Since its inception, Binc has provided over $9 million in financial assistance and scholarships to more than 9000+ families. Support for the Foundation’s programs and services comes from all sectors of the book and comic industries. The Foundation was imagined and built by booksellers and proudly continues to be their safety net. In response to the current COVID-19 pandemic, the book and comic industries came together in an extraordinary way allowing Binc to help 2,191 booksellers, comic retailers, and stores with $2.7 million in urgently needed assistance.

The Give Comics Hope logo was created by Craig Yoe of Yoe Studio. The Give Comics Hope website was designed and is managed by Gary Smith of AtPlay Creative.

The Unknown Anti-War Comics!

Craig Yoe (Editor) • Steve Ditko, Pete Morisi, & Various (a) Steve Ditko (c)

An action-oriented medium, comics have long used wars—real and fictional—as narrative fodder. Now, discover the secret, surprising history of anti-war comics with this marvelously curated collection.

A few comics of the time portrayed the horrors of war, but no blatantly anti-war stories were known to exist—until now! Buried in rare comics published during the Cold War were powerful war, fantasy, and sci-fi stories that strongly condemned war and the bomb, boldly calling for peace.

The Unknown Anti-War Comics!

The Unknown Anti-War Comics, Out this January

The world is now marking the 100th anniversary of the Armistice of World War I, “The War to End All Wars” that brought the cry, “Never Again!” Nearly four decades later, Never Again was a rare two-issue anti-war comic book with a host – a WWI doughboy referred to as The Unknown Soldier – who told gripping war stories with a strong anti-war stance.

The comics from Never Again and other arcane historical comic book sources are carefully restored and showcased in an important new book, The Unknown Anti-War Comics. An action-oriented medium, comics have long used wars – real and fictional – as narrative fodder, often with a strong message attached. Buried in the comics published during the Cold War were powerful combat, fantasy, and sci-fi stories that strongly condemned war and nuclear weapons, boldly calling for peace.

The Unknown Anti-War Comics features the art of Steve Ditko and leads off with two noteworthy introductions. The first introduction is a comic story created especially for the collection by Nate Powell, artist of the National Book Award-Winning March books about Civil Rights leader John Lewis. The second introduction is by Noel Paul Stookey, activist and singer/songwriter of Peter, Paul, and Mary fame.

The 224-page book’s artful advocacy of peace is as important as ever in a world still embroiled in war.

The Unknown Anti-War Comics is edited by Craig Yoe, multiple Eisner Award winner, Mobius winner, and recipient of the Gold Medal from the Society of Illustrators. Now available for pre-order via online booksellers and comic book specialty retailers, The Unknown Anti-War Comics is slated for release in January.

Eisner-winner Craig Yoe provides both witty and fascinating context to heroes like Mr. Whiskers (a young actor who dresses like an old geezer), Hip Knox (who has an eye-ball on his chest and what looks like a woo-woo on his belt), and Pat Parker War Nurse (who fights Nazis in a skimpy nurse/superhero costume)! Over 30 full comic stories in all!
