Visionary’s BIG10 Begins This Spring!

Welcome to Springtime! Despite the snowy start some parts of the country had, we’re more than ready for it here at Visionary Central! Spring is a season of new beginnings and growth, and this one will be truly Visionary!

We started 2015 strong, with our Deadlands trifecta: a hugely successful Kickstarter with the Cackler, a strong pre-order campaign for Dead Man’s Hand in stores April 1st, and the announcement of Ghostwalkers from New York Times best-selling author Jonathan Maberry and Tor Books!

We also launched our hit comic strip, My Comic Life which marks its twelfth consecutive week of publication with today’s latest strip…

As part of our BIG10 we’re going to be revamping and expanding our Services section of our site, announcing new package deals and specialized services, and strutting our stuff online! We’re also going to be doing giveaways and other special promotions for our fans, so all you Visionaries out there should stay tuned!

Catching a New Vision

PR2014PromotionalFinalVisionary Comics has been around a while, and some have called it one of the best-kept secrets in comics. Known as a top quality production studio, and the first digital-exclusive publisher supporting creator-owned projects, they also became the first production studio to throw its hat in the licensing ring with Deadlands. This fall, however, the secret is out, and Visionary is on the move.

Visionary has virtually doubled its staff in recent months, adding Webmaster and AV Chief Christiaan Conover, Admin Director Cathy Dougherty, and Art Manager Mike Munshaw. The studio has also added big guns Jeff Mariotte (comic writer, author) and Shane Hensley (creator of Deadlands) to focus on its expansion into prose publishing and transmedia development.

As part of this expansion, Visionary has announced Deadlands-focused partnerships with IDW Publishing, which will be publishing the first trade, Dead Man’s Hand, in March of 2015, and Tor Books, which will be publishing a line of prose novels coming later next year.

Dead Man’s Hand collects Deadlands one-shots published by Visionary and Image Comics, and features a stunning list of talent: David Gallaher, Steve Ellis, Jimmy Palmiotti, Justin Gray, Lee Moder, Ron Marz, Bart Sears, Jeff Mariotte, Brook Turner, and Michael Atiyeh. The comics were called “All-Star Westerns” by the media, and the full collection has been much anticipated.

The new novel line will kick off with three books, by New York Times bestselling authors Jonathan Maberry, Seanan McGuire, and Jeff Mariotte. Release dates have yet to be confirmed but production has begun in earnest.

In the midst of all this, Deadlands remains in active development for a live-action TV Series.

Visionary has no intention of stopping there, and just announced at Baltimore Comic-Con an exclusive new line of comics under its new Creation imprint. The new imprint will debut on their new webcomics portal, now in an initial test phase on their website. The studio promises a unique line of titles, diverse in genre, format, and focus. They also promise some unique means of fan involvement in what is shaping up to be a promising launch scheduled to roll out over the rest of 2014.

Visionary Chief Creative Officer C. Edward Sellner said, “We’ve been working toward this stage for a long time, and now that we’re reaching it, I can’t wait for the fans to see what we’re putting together for them. This is truly a new era for Visionary, and for comics.” Stay tuned for more details!

About Visionary Comics: Since their debut in 2006, Visionary Comics has become one of the first and largest digital exclusive publishers, and a full-service packaging and production studio. With their expansion into licensed material, and now a move into the prose market, Visionary continues to expand its reach and transmedia presence while building its brand of quality.

Welcome to a Visionary Summer!

CMYK_LogoEver worked hard on something for a long time, wondering if it would ever pay off? Ever wondered if you really could live your dreams and make it real?

This summer, and the rest of this year is going to be that payoff for Visionary! A lot of the groundwork we’ve been laying for the last several years is coming together in exciting new opportunities that just keep getting bigger and better, and we couldn’t be more thrilled!

We’ve hinted at it over the last few months, planted a few teasers, but now, its time, time to start slowly pulling the curtain back on everything coming!

This won’t just be the big payoff for us, but also for all our fans out there, the ones who’ve rooted for us, and supported us in all our efforts, from our digital sales, to loyal convention fans, to our wonderful Kickstarter supporters. You folks have made this happen, so we hope you enjoy it all!

Join us on our main site, and all our ancillary sites, blogs, social networking etc. as we overhaul our look, our content, our brand, and start rolling out the best year ever! We’ll be running new features, posting new content, teasers for new comics, and be doing contests, giveaways and other promotional fun all to get everyone as excited as we are.

This is going to be truly Visionary!

Jeff Mariotte Joins Visionary

JeffMariotte

Visionary Comics is proud to officially announce that award-winning, bestselling author Jeffrey J. Mariotte has joined the Visionary Staff. Jeff, in addition to his writing work, has worked as VP of marketing for WildStorm Productions/Image Comics, senior editor for WildStorm Productions/DC Comics, and editor-in-chief for IDW Publishing.

Now officially Visionary’s Publishing Consultant, Jeff said,  “I was the twelfth employee on board at WildStorm Productions, in the early days of Image Comics, and helped build that company into a comics powerhouse that became part of industry leader DC Comics. I was the first Editor-in-Chief at IDW Publishing, and helped that company become the dominant presence it is today. I love working with small companies and helping them grow. Successful small publishers share an entrepreneurial spirit, a willingness to take chances, and a hunger to make a difference, and I see those same attitudes at Visionary Comics today. Though I’m not a full-time staffer and my role is largely consultative, I’m thrilled to offer my experience and abilities to the Visionary team, and anxious to watch them explode with growth.”

Chief Creative Officer C. Edward Sellner added, “Jeff’s really been with us for a while. He was instrumental in making our deal with Tor for Deadlands and I am very excited about him expanding that role with Visionary in the coming months and years. If there’s one thing I can be proud of in this industry, I think its me knowing when to bring in the best in expertise to help take us to the next level, and we are thrilled to have Jeff be part of that.”
