I’m excited! I think this is the best Magic Bullet yet! And I’m not just saying that cause I have a Black Magic Tales story titled “The Old Gang” and is illustrated by the amazing cartoonist Carolyn Belefski and is the very first ever full colored Black Magic Tales story. It’s also the closing story to Magic Bullet #9. No, I’m not just saying that. I’m also saying its the biggest Magic Bullet to date. Carolyn Belefski put together another amazing issue.- Joe Carabeo

BLACK MAGIC TALES ” A NEW HOME”Written by Joe CarabeoIllustrated by Carolyn BelefskiEver read our comics before??Reposted from Carolyn Belefski’s blogHere is the full one page Black Magic Tales comic Curls Studio did for Magic Bullet #8. Magic Bullet is Washington, DC’s comics newspaper anthology. I feel like it’s safe to release the page once the newspaper has been out for at least three months (in the case of this, it’s been available in print form since February). We’ve been in every issue so far. On top of that, I’ve been editor starting with issue #6, so there’s a lot of behind-the-scenes action that goes on with preparing a publication. Maybe in the future I’ll do a post about what it’s like to produce and work with over 50 people and manage the editorial team to create each issue, but for now enjoy the story! 
If you are interested in submitting your one page story to the next Magic Bullet, here’s all the information: http://magicbulletcomics.blogspot.com/p/submissions.html
The deadline for advertising and comic submissions is July 1. The theme for Magic Bullet #9 is Western. We look forward to receiving your submissions.

COMING TO AWESOME CON 2014! - THE OTHER SIDE OF THE TABLE: LESSONS FROM CREATORS (WASHINGTON DC EDITION)

Check out the film of the previous THE OTHER SIDE OF THE TABLE panels, Produced by Astray Productions and Joe Carabeo and filmed at New York Comic Con by Brian Sarvis in 2011.This edition The Other Side of the Table: Lessons from Creators, features the great comic book creators, Carolyn Belefski ( http://curls-studio.com/ ) Raina Telgemeier ( http://goraina.com/) Reilly Brown ( http://reillybrown.tumblr.com/ ) and David Gallaher ( http://davidgallaher.tumblr.com/ ) as they talk about the life of being a comic book creator.

THE OTHER SIDE OF THE TABLE
Creating your product is only half the work it takes to succeed in the comics industry. What about the other half that we don’t see as clearly after the product is released to the world? This important panel will explore what it is like to be on the other side of the table, as a creator. We will discuss what it takes to exhibit at conventions, promote yourself, gain a loyal audience, and hopfully survive the life as comic book creator in today’s wild west industry - from the POV of professionals already behind the table. Moderated by filmmaker/ comic writer Joe Carabeo.

Stay tuned for details on the date and room number for THE OTHER SIDE OF THE TABLE: LESSONS FROM CREATORS  (Washington DC edition) at Awesome Con DC

MAGIC BULLET #8 COVER BY STEVE LOYA REVEALED I know this image and article isn’t about a naked or half naked girl, but it’s just as good. As you know, I also write comic books that are illustrated by the awesomeness that is Carolyn Belefski. Carolyn Belefski is also the editor of Washington DC’s only comics newspaper anthology series, DC Conspiracy’s MAGIC BULLET, and just revealed today is the cover of MAGIC BULLET #8!The colors! Its nice that in a world of dark and gritty that some color can shine through I think.Also in MAGIC BULLET #8 Carolyn and I have a BLACK MAGIC TALES story called “A New Home”. If any of you who know about my recent distaste for how the 1% have been treating certain animals, then this is one of my purist reactions of their actions. With of course the use of Carolyn and I’s outlaw characters, Roxy and Dean. But also its a love story.Check out all the other great artists and creators in this newest issue.Jeff McClellandRachel ScheerMatt DembickiSean HillR.M.
