With comics now firmly part of mainstream culture, it feels like there is a gap in the market for a publication about comics. (It’s certainly part of the reason we started The Pull List). As someone who grew up reading Wizard and Comics International there isn’t a really high profile magazine about the industry any more, let alone one that looks at it’s cultural impact as well. The likes of SFX and Starburst pay lip service with some content and magazines like Comic Heroes come and go but there isn’t anything with a mature and intelligent way of looking at the comics world – until now. Full Bleed is the first issue of a new quarterly anthology from IDW imprint PDX and is headed up by longtime IDW editor Dirk Wood.

But will this final journey be a fitting end for the daughter of the great captain Nemo.

Leah and developer Ed Moore [no relation] give us exclusive insights into this ground-breaking new project.

You might not expect legendary comic creator, Alan Moore to be an advocate of digital publishing, however the Watchmen co-creator is leading a research and development project to create an app enabling digital comics to be made by anyone. Alongside an open source tool kit for creators it will also include exclusive Alan Moore digital comics.
