Expanding Visions

Spotlight PR Banner

First, a warm welcome to all our new Visionaries – new subscribers from our first events of 2019! One of the best aspects of our job is meeting fans, and our CCO especially loves doing cons and festivals in order to catch up with our regulars and add new folks to the fold. Hope you’ll stick with us for the long haul! Lots of cool stuff coming your way!

Second, so far we’ve only briefly mentioned the other exciting new weekly features we will be rolling out over the next couple months, so we thought we’d give you a little more insight into each this week.

Sunday Comics PR Banner

The Sunday Comics will feature new online web comics and comic strips EVERY Sunday! We’ll be rebooting My Comic Life and launching it with this feature, as well as new strips of other series, and guest strips from other creators! In addition, we’ll have all new comic short stories, and pages of longer web comic series! Sci-Fi, Horror, and Super-Hero action like you like it, every week, and all FREE!

Get Creative will be a weekly celebration of the Creative Arts EVERY Saturday! We’ll be rebooting the My Comic Life column with weekly insights on the life of a comic creator, as well interviews with other creators, sneak peeks of upcoming projects, works in progress, sketches, snippets of stories, and more! This feature will be the unfinished, raw art of creation!

Visions Weekly PR Banner

Visions Weekly will be the weekly feature that steps into the worlds of Visionary, EVERY Thursday! Flash fiction, poetry, news articles, journal entries, letters, wiki entries, all set IN the worlds of Visionary’s series. This feature will run in conjunction with our Visionary Creation Wiki, and act as a window into the worlds of our titles, giving glimpses of more to come!

Each feature will have it’s own style and approach, and each offer it’s own perspective about the studio and our content! Don’t miss a thing!

Creating Comics Spring 2019



The Spotlight Returns & OOOPS!

First, the OOOPS!

Blame Chuck.

Those of you subscribed received a massive spam email blast from our main studio site earlier today. We are SOOOOOO Sorry!

We’re overhauling the main site and that plan includes a review of all our previous posts. Unfortunately, in that process… well, we hit a wrong button reposting a bunch of posts we had set to drafts, and guess what? Everyone got those posts emailed to them en masse.

This was not a hacking situation, or malicious, just a case of OOOPS and a little D’oh on the side. We hope you’ll forgive us and stick around! Lots of new stuff coming your way!

(Hey, we did want to get your attention, just you know… not like that…)

The All-New Visionary Spotlight

Visionary went through a lot of changes in 2018, as a result, we pulled in and focused on our primary core business – being a Creative Services Studio. This meant things like site updates, conventions, digital publishing, etc. took a back seat in 2018.

But now, as we’ve streamlined, refocused and laid the groundwork for our next phase, we’re ramping back up to full speed on other fronts. We’ve got lots of exciting things in the works, from an expansion of our main site to all new online features, to new comics and books!

You can get all the latest news every Tuesday in our Spotlight! Updates on conventions, new features, new releases, and other fun stuff!
