THE FUTURE OF PREMIER

June 21, 2014 in Important, News

I will be doing a special, of sorts, dealing with all work given to me. Separate deadlines, of sorts, will be ignored.

I want everyone to send me the previews and all that as they would normally, but I will be building a special edition of Premier, possibly Premier Comics #0, a starting of what can happen, what we can build up.

I have teamed up with Comic Blender, to upload our issues, and the possibility of a partnership of sorts to support indie comics.

But yeah, for the next few months, send me what you have, throw your ideas at me. Let us build the best Pre-issue of Premier we can! Lets build something amazing.

Kicking Premier Back Into Gear

October 14, 2013 in News

Premier Pulp Comics, August 2013 Finale

August 29, 2013 in Pulp! Release

Premier Pulp Comics Finale

Hello everyone, Vorked here! I’ve taken the liberty, due to the absence of Jack Garren, to compile and create this month’s Big Lil’ Finale of Premier Pulp. And due to the absence of Brian, I’ve taken the liberty of also uploading and preparing a statement to go along with it! Here are the new things. The file-types are now much smaller, as I have optimized the PDF down to 8mb, and the CBR zip to 22mb. This will help your downloads be smoother and quicker. The smaller PDF also shows that you’ll be able to scroll through and load the pages much faster, alongside not needing to wait much at all to get your hands on them.

I apologize for just how long it took for this issue to come out, but with the disappearing of Jack for the time he was gone, it left us with nothing to work with. Once I got the files from Jack, I was able to take over creating the issues.

Premier Pulp may be over, but fear not, Premier Comics is still going strong. All you need to do is give us some time to prepare everything and begin anew! From the ashes of Premier Pulp rises Premier Comics!

 PDF Download (9.06MB)

CBR Download (Now better quality!) (18.94MB)

To read CBR files, we recommend CDisplayEx for Windows and FFview for Mac. Make sure to leave feedback in the comments, or contact us on TwitterTumblr or Facebook!

If you enjoyed this issue, and have even the slightest interest in making some comics yourself, get on board for Premier Comics big release! Entry deadlines will come soon. If you show any interest what so ever, contact me at Vorked@gmail.com or pulpmageds@gmail.com.

A great big thanks to everyone that made Premier Pulp what it is, and thanks to everyone that will make Premier Comics what it can be.

Do not fear, everyone! The finale of Premier Pulp is coming soon! Very soon! It may be Premier Pulp’s final issue, but it will not be Premier Comic’s final issue! We will continue on with a new name and bigger ambitions! Just keep your eyes pealed for the next few days, because it’s coming your way!

 

Love Vorked.

Possible Contributor Comic Hosting To Come

June 8, 2013 in News

A decent possibility will arrive for those who did not make it into an Issue to host their comics using our HMSB reader. We’ll be offering a small section where comics will be under a “Premier Comics Presents” sidebar, offering your series to be shown. This is also useful to those who did not fit the criteria or requirements of Premier Comics magazine.
To get your material hosted through Premier Comics’s online reader, you must be a part of the current contributors or have special permission from Editors, and must be safe for work. The images must be no larger than standard A1 paper, and must be under PNG or JPG format. To request your comic’s to be hosted, email us at vorked@gmail.com or brian@premiercomics.com. Once submitted, make sure your comics are zipped in either a CBR, ZIP, or RAR, and upload them to a website that isn’t a torrent or something like Rapidshare. My suggestion is to not let your comic above 60 pages, as the reader begins to bog down when it comes to loading the images.

Remember, safe for work, less than 60 pages, PNG or JPG, and no larger than standard paper size. Not too difficult to handle, really.

Premier Comic Contributors should submit bios now.

June 7, 2013 in News

A quick newsletter for you folks: We’re in the process of putting together a section on the website with biographies of the contributors. As for what a biography should look like, here’s a sample:

Brian J.M. is the Editor-in-Chief at Premier Comics. It’s a fancy way of saying he made the magazine. His job is to make sure comics get made and that people are reading them. His favorite part of working on the magazine is meeting new people and seeing everyone collaborate on their projects. He lives in California, and when he’s not listening to weird music he can be reached at brian@premiercomics.com.

For you contributors, they can be a bit longer. In general, a biography should follow these points:

1. Be in third person
2. Name first and then profession
3. What you do/are known for
4. Fact 1 about yourself (Perhaps your influences/interests)
6. Fact 2 about yourself (Perhaps your long term goals)
7. Location & Where you can be reached at.
8. Other websites
9. An image at exactly 200x200px

If they seem a bit long, we’ll work to trim them down, but it’s important just to get a draft of your bio to us as soon as you can. Here are the people we need bios from:

Jack Garren

Vorked here, I have slightly edited the Premier Comics Newsletter to slightly update what is needed. I will need an image that you want hosted with your name and information that is exactly 200×200 and either PNG, animated GIF, or JPG. This is up to you. The text should be grammatically correct. Send me your image, name wanted with your entry, and the text to vorked@gmail.com

HERE’S MY SUNDAY BEST! The new Premier Comics online comic reader!

June 7, 2013 in News

INFINITY!

As you can see, on the top-right of the information sidebar now shows a “Read Online” list of links that lead you to the page featuring that issue to read online! With this, you will not have to download the comics via PDF or CBR, unless you truly want to, in which those options will stay available to everyone who wants them! The reader is based in a single page with no need to load other pages as you click what page you want to load OR click the current page you are reading to move to the next. If, at the time you are reading this, not all issues have been uploading, do not fear. I am currently working on uploading every issue released so far.

New issues will be added to the roster, as well as any Specials or shorts that are released. Stay tuned for more information and updates dealing with Premier Comics here!

Be sure to Bookmark us or at least check up on us every week!

HMSB Reader for everyone!

-Love Vorked.

Welcome to the new site!

Vorked, here! We’ve currently begun the move to our own website! As you can see, we’re setting up everything as I type this. Stay tuned for more as we go.

Submissions now open for SUBSTANCE

May 14, 2013 in Substance

substance band

Coming this year from the Premier Comics collective is Substance, a new anthology of auto-biographical and personal comics. We are now accepting submissions – send us an email with a script, idea, thumbnails, storyboard, comic-in-progress, or comic that you’d like to submit. There are no hard limits on content – your stories don’t need to be non-fiction or of any particular genre; but with this collection we hope to provide a cohesive platform for work that might feel a little out of place between comics about zombies or aliens.

Substance is about life and art and all the things that bind you to the lines you put on the page. If you think a comic you’d like to make might fit, talk to us about it.

The specifics:

  • We are accepting submissions from now until some point later in the year. There’s no rush to meet an immediate deadline for now – we’ll release when we think the comics that are right are ready.
  • For those familiar with Pulp, the page requirements are the same. For others: your pages should be A4 proportions at 200PPI or higher – that’s at least 1654*2339 pixels, preferably in .PNG or .TIF or a well-managed .JPG that’s avoided ugly compression.
  • Your submission can be as short as one page – there isn’t a strict cap on the maximum length, but since we want to keep the entire collection to a manageable size, the longer your comic is the more convincing we’ll need. If you’re venturing up to or beyond 20 pages be ready to justify the length.
  • Submissions should be in greyscale. We’ll talk more about what we might be doing with colours with interested contributors.
  • Substance is an entirely free, digitally-distributed endeavour that makes, takes and pays no money. Copyright to all submitted content remains with the creator.

S-st-status

Contributors to the current issue: As you may have noticed, this issue has been pretty hectic – both in terms of the upcoming changes around these parts (turns out launching three magazines requires three times as much work and that websites, annoyingly, don’t build themselves if you just leave them to their business), and as a result of employment and academia and other trivial non-comics-related things. Deadlines are going to be flexible this issue as a result, and since it’s the last ish – if you feel like your project is dragging on as a result of a delay on our end, don’t worry, you’ll have the time to make up.

If you have anything really urgent you need, yell at us via email indicating as such in the subject and we’ll bump you to the top of the queue for responses.

A more manageable structure for these sorts of things is going to be one of the biggest behind-the-scenes changes from Pulp to Panel Beat. Speaking of which, if you – as a reader or contributor – have anything you’d like to see done differently in PB, by all means let us know in the coming weeks.
