About Comics & Gaming Magazine

The Comics & Gaming Magazine arrived on the Canadian literary landscape in February 2010. They look at the industry through a Canadian lens, with coverage on the latest and greatest the industry has to offer – nationally and internationally.

The Magazine decided to expand into the expanding world of comics, graphic novels, and gaming after being disappointed with the lack of print options available for the average comic and gaming enthusiast. The market is currently saturated with print magazines produced with a focus on specific gaming systems and major companies. However, very few give the general fan a look at the entire gaming industry from an independent perspective. All the while, comics and graphic novels are severely underrepresented, and publications often target children and teenage audiences rather than adult enthusiasts.

 

 

It is a venture launched by Lucid Media Network, a Canadian-owned and-operated publisher which currently publishes two other nationally-distributed magazines: Lucid Media magazine and Side Street Review, both of which are based in arts and culture. They are expanded into comics and gaming with the belief that arts and culture does not preclude, but rather encompasses these two distinct mediums.
