The Great God Pan is Dead, a longtime Houston-based blog about art and comics founded by Robert Boyd, is launching an art/prose/comics print publication called Exu, and it promises some very cool features and contributors in the upcoming first issue.
Via its Indiegogo page, each page of the full-color issue of Exu Magazine “will have one image by one artist (except for the pages devoted to prose and comics). The idea is to give these artists a large showcase in which their art will have a bold graphic effect. It’s the visual impact of old tabloid newspapers that inspires Exu.”
Contributors to the first 48-page issue include Trenton Doyle Hancock, Seth Alverson, Debra Barrera, JooYoung Choi, Nathaniel Donnett, Hillerbrand+Magsamen, Emily Peacock, Jason Villegas and more! There’s original prose and comics too, by talents like Pete Gershon, John Nova Lomax, and Jim Pirtle, and Mack White, Scott Gilbert, Sarah Welch and Brett Hollis.
The first issue is $9 (and it’ll be worth more than that in years to come). Sign us up. Here’s where you find it.
