A picture says more than a thousand words…

September 10, 2012 |

Or so they say. We’ll be diplomatic and say the word counts just as much as the art.

But up until this point, Outré has only displayed the word, and simply promised art. We know our legitimacy won’t hold solid before we launch our first issue. Or that we’d have any slice of legitimacy as a comic anthology before any art was presented. But the involvement and amount of pitches from writers (and artists) have been huge, and we are grateful for believing in Outré!

So it’s with great pleasure to show you the seeds of what will become the cover for our initial issue, about responsibility, created by the talented Alex Elykov.

Here are the suggestions he sent us after we gave him the theme “responsibility” to tackle:





Which one we chose to proceed with you’ll figure out next time…


In the meantime, the deadline for submitting your pitch to the second issue, about hopelessness, is drawing to a close. The gate shuts after the 12th of September. Read the submission guidelines here.

Get involved!
