Heidi MacDonald at Publisher’s Weekly recently ran a very nice article on Magnetic Press, following a candid phone conversation with co-founders Mike Kennedy and Wes Harris.
“With comics sales growing in 2013, two veteran comics execs are betting that there’s room for a new publisher with an eclectic line-up of new and translated titles. Magnetic Press is a new comics line which aims to release 10-20 graphic novels a year, starting in early Spring with Super Ego by Caio Oliveira and Naja and Meka, two titles by the acclaimed Franco-Belgian team of JD Morvan and Bengal.
Magnetic, whose motto is “Stories that stick,” is the brainchild of publisher Mike Kennedy and CEO Wes Harris, both industry veterans. Kennedy was publisher at Archaia, and has an extensive background in video games and writing. Harris was the v-p of publishing at Boom! Studios and previously worked at Viz and White Wolf publishing.”
