Former Archaia Publisher And Boom! VP Join Together For Magnetic Press

MagneticPress-bannerIndustry veterans Mike Kennedy (former publisher of Archaia Entertainement) and Wes Harris (former VP of Publishig for Boom! Studios) have announced the forming of a new company: Magnetic Press.

The new publisher will focus on graphic novels from creators around the world. Already among their upcoming catalogue of books will be: Dave Dorman's WASTED LANDS, JD Morvan and Bengal's NAJA and MEKA, F. Ruiz Velasco's CULEBRA and LEGION OF BLOOD, Caio Oliveira's SUPER-EGOPROPHET HILL, and VIVID, Francisco Paronzini's HUGO BROYLER, and Lucas Marangon's THINKING OUT LOUD.

"The most exciting aspect of any creative field is the opportunity to collaborate with and learn from amazing talent," says Kennedy.  "There's an electrifying amount of talent out there, from around the world, all deserving wider attention, and we are thrilled to create a publishing program that's built from the ground up to support them in their effort to pursue what they are so passionate about doing."

Magnetic Press's debut catalog launches in Spring of 2014. Additional titles are also in the works, and details on each title, with previews, will be released soon.
