Prism Comics 2006 Presale Book Artwork Unveiled, Shipping Tuesday
posted February 20th, 2006
[Print-ready Version]

Today, Prism Comics unveiled artwork from the limited edition color book that accompanies its special fundraiser presale of Prism Comics: Your LGBT Guide to Comics 2006, the nonprofit organization's resource guide to lesbian, gay, bisexual and trangender comics and creators. The organization also announced that all orders including the 2006 presale will ship this Tuesday.

"I was thrilled by the response from creators who wanted to participate," said the project's editor, and Prism's online store manager, Charles "Zan" Christensen, "and I was even more thrilled that so many people ordered the presale package without even seeing the companion book that it contains. It tells me there's a big community of people who support Prism Comics and the work we do to promote lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender comics creators."

"I'm very excited to be in the Prism 2006 companion book," said Donna Barr, who contributed a piece from her "Angels and Vampires" series of art prints. "Prism is such a classy company, and knows how to market first-class work. Any Prism project is a gotta have."

"I'm thrilled to have a page included in Prism's special 2006 companion book," said artist Lynx Delirium. "I'm equally excited to say that it serves as the first appearance in print of two new gay characters from a web comic I'm creating through Carabosse Comics titled CHE. I'm always honored to be a part of Prism Comics' projects."

"We're overjoyed that we could be apart of this," said superhero comics team Paige and Kevin Alexis (PKA). "We really like the idea of a color companion book. It's cool and a real nice incentive for others to help out Prism's ongoing efforts. We are so impressed with Prism Comics and their work especially when it comes to things like their Guide. It's amazing the way they never cease to find ways to improve a book that we thought couldn't get any better."

Less than 50 copies of the color companion book, called the Prism Comics 2006 Color Portfolio, are still available from the numbered print run of 100. The book contains one page each of full-color artwork from 23 different comics talents, one of which is a vibrant cover by Manya and Max and Lily artist Kris Dresen. Contributions include a swashbuckling sci-fi scene from Aman Chaudhary, a Bitchy Butch strip from Roberta Gregory, and an installment of Politically InQueerect from Dylan "NDR" Edwards.

Of course, the main attraction in the presale is the 2006 edition of Prism Comics: Your LGBT Guide to Comics, itself, edited by Shaun Manning. It is the fourth edition of the Guide, clocking in at 144 pages in a new, larger 6"x9" format. The book contains 9 feature articles, 8 comics features, illustrations by Andy Swist and 42 pages of creator profiles of established and rising comics stars.

"This year's Prism Guide has a bit of everything, from outrageous satire to heartfelt confessions." Manning said. "We've added a bit of international flavor with pieces by Lawrence Schimel, and welcomed manga into the fold. Prism Comics 2006 includes work from some fan-favorite creators doing work of interest to LGBT readers, and we also spotlight some up-and-coming artists you may be discovering for the first time."

"The Prism Color Portfolio is a stellar companion to the 2006 Guide," Manning continued. "This limited-edition art book adds to the spectrum of creative talent highlighted in the Prism Guide, and contributes a few more exciting artistic styles to the mix."

The presale edition of Prism Comics: Your LGBT Guide to Comics 2006 is available in the Prism Comics online store.
