BIG NEWS: My comic in Magnet magazine + win a copy!!!

So I've had a little secret I've been dying to share since September… For the next 6 months I'll be writing and illustrating a comic strip called "The adventures of Record Store Girl" for music magazine Magnet!!

The comic is about Lillian, a record store shop girl, who accidentally discovers a magical object that gives her super powers! But what will she do with those powers…? Fight to save record stores from big-box chains taking over, become a music vigilante or just decline her new abilities for a normal life? You'll have to read the strips to find out!

Lillian also happens to be a real person – she's my good friend who actually works at Criminal Records here in Atlanta! I got the idea to write about her as magical girl because she does so many things for her store and local community in Atlanta that it's almost super human! 

I'm so excited about Record Store Girl because I've always wanted to write a cutesy magical girl story and this was the perfect opportunity! I can't wait to see how it all evolves! I might even try to weave it into my personal comic I've been working on.

 

Magazine with my comic in it!

 

Comic #1 went on sale at the beginning of November with the above cover, but I wasn't able to blog about it right away due to work and personal stuff… But! It will be for sale until the 28th so you can still hurry if you want to get a copy!!

    I would want the powers of Poison Ivy with the flexibility of Catwoman and the attitude of Harley! Or if I was making my own character like you so wonderfully did she would be able to touch any book and absorb all the information inside and use it to defeat evil and bring peace to the realm!

    Yay! A San Comic. Congrats. πŸ˜€ I’ve been reading a lot of graphic novels lately and it makes me want to wish I could have super-speed reading powers so I can read all the books in the world. I really would love to have teleporting powers, though. I don’t drive and it would make things easier for me to get to my job. Or Japan. Lol.

    Oh San, this looks so cute!!! I’m really excited for you! I hope to pick up a copy when I get back to the states πŸ™‚
    I love the character design especially. Would it be ok to add that to my list of future cosplay ideas? πŸ˜‰ Your artwork always makes me so happy!
    I wish I had teleportation powers, so I could travel freely and see my loved ones and friends no matter what!

    That is so cool! Everyone needs to read more comics. If I had powers, I’d want to be able to regenerate like Wolverine, fly like Rouge and be able to control the weather like Storm.

    Congrats – that’s awesome!
    I think maybe I’d like to control time, be able to speed up, slow down or pause it.
    I’ll be in Atlanta in March – I’ll have to put the record store on my list of things to check out

    That looks really good! Congrats!
    If I could have a magical power it would be the ability to braethe underwater, so I could see all the deep sea creatures… And the ability to time travel would be great too.

    Oh wow it looks amazing San, congratz!
    If I were to have a super power it would have to be teleportation I’d save a fortune on air tickets, be able to see my friends and family in the blink of an eye and spend my life doing the one thing I love TRAVEL!

    San!
    I’m so excited that you’re making comics!
    If I had a super power, it would definitely be a positivity power. It would probably look something like Chibi Moon’s Pink Sugar Heart, and make myself and others feel super positive and empowered πŸ˜‰
