Sparkler Sampler Issue: Year 1

(Click here for full-size cover image by special guest artist Jamie Lynn Lano! Her memoir of working as an assistant on the Prince of Tennis manga in Japan--The Princess of Tennis--is now available in the Sparkler Shop!)

Greetings, readers and listeners! We are making some changes with our release format this month, as we launch Year 2 of the magazine--as of this update, we're switching from releasing new chapters starting on the first Friday of every month to releasing the ENTIRE month's worth of chapters on the first Monday. Thus, our August issue will officially launch on August 4th. But in the meantime, we didn't want to just leave you bereft! So you get a few days of our sampler issue gracing the front page of the site.

It’s been an exciting first year for all of us, as we reached the long-awaited conclusion of Jen Lee Quick’s comics series Off*Beat, launched a bunch of new series (including the completely original audio drama Awake), and found some amazing new talent through our open submissions. It was great to sit down to put together the PDF sampler (which is available as a free download for anyone!), and in the process look back at everything we’ve accomplished in the last twelve months. Hopefully you've all been enjoying it as much as we have!

As always, we thank you for your support and value your feedback. Every membership sold helps us pay our creators advances and release even more exciting content, so if you like what you see, please consider becoming a part of the Sparkler community and making Year 2 even better!
