RedEye Re-Launched

(via Bugpowder): Artist and designer Barry Renshaw is relaunching his excellent indie comic magazine RedEye.

First published in 2003 by Engine Comics, RedEye was dedicated to the independent British comics press. With the focus on UK creators, it covered comics, news and events that just simply wouldn’t show up on other magazines’ radar, due to lack of interest, knowledge or distribution.

RedEye Volume 2 will be a monthly full colour PDF magazine available for download for £1/$1 at,” says Barry.

The new e-edition of RedEye will again cover news on indies from across the world, previews of upcoming books, indepth interviews with legends in the industry and future stars, definitive articles on all aspects of the medium, reviews and feedback from readers.

“We’ll also be including, due to popular demand, a monthly Guide to Self Publishing Q&A for those looking for some advice,” Barry reveals, “an open submission for a 10 page comic strip each issue, and a rotating guest column from those in the industry.”
