It’s nearly a week since Outré #4: Silence was released to the world, and we are very grateful to everyone who’s downloaded the issue so far. If you’re one of those who for some obscure reason are still sitting on the fence about checking out our latest effort, then we urge you to do so now. When it comes to free comic book anthologies, we’re certain that Outré is the greatest looking yet.
The issue’s first review is out there already, this time from our good man Jonathan Pilley over at Omnicomic.com. We’re happy to see that it was just as well received as the last one:
Outré #4: Silence is an interesting anthology that capitalizes on the premise that silence is deafening. Despite a lack of words, there are still numerous actions that carry with them a tremendous weight and emotion. Those feelings are conveyed very well in the anthology, with each story managing to touch a different emotion through different characters and actions.
You can expect us to pimp more reviews in the weeks to come. We also got a nice plug at the Comics Experience blog, pointing out the issue’s strong connections to the workshop. As many as three of the four writers in Outré #4 are Comics Experience members; Devon Wong, Bret Bernal and Lex Wilson. If you’re an artist or a writer who’s considering a career in comics, you should definitely consider signing up for one of the workshop’s online courses.
After reviewing the story submissions we received for the fifth issue, we’re currently busy with assembling the creative teams that will be featured within. But that issue is still many months away from being released, so in the meantime, tell your friends, co-workers and relatives that they should all stop what they’re doing and download Outré #4: Silence instead. They’ll thank you for it later.
