Buyer's Guide: Alterna Comics

New York Comic Book Writer Creates New Wave of Alterna Comics

Alterna Comics has been trying to take the world by storm since 2021. Alterna Comics was created by Peter Simeti and is now a monthly magazine that can be delivered to your door. Alterna Comics has grown into a successful business for Peter Simeti and illustrator Kurt Busiek.

Alterna Comics features top selling, best-selling, best-designed comics that are all collected together in one magazine. Alterna Comics was launched in January 2021 by Peter Simeti and was launched exclusively for comic shops. Alterna Comics has grown substantially since then. It now offers online ordering, a complete line of comics, graphic novels, fiction books, trades and magazines.

The brand new issue of Alterna Comics will be available to the public in: January, March, and April. The new comic will hit the stores in various numbers. As we all know, a single Alterna Comics copy can be purchased or even enjoyed and appreciated for years. This is the reason why Alterna Comics subscribers have gotten used to the subscription plan and are enjoying reading the comics and enjoying the value of their subscription.

Alterna Comics publisher Kurt Busiek talks about the future of Alterna Comics in this interview. "There will be six issues released in January, March, April, June, and July. We've made a deal with IDW, who handles all of our licenses. That's where the bulk of our new comics will come from. Actually, we did a deal with DC comics and we'll launch a couple of new titles. I would say that over the last three years, almost half of our new titles have come from an agreement between DC and us."

Busiek continues and says "we do have an exclusive contract with Image, which handles all of their comics. So, whenever somebody reads Alterna, it goes through our company and we're paid a royalty. When you get a book like the New York Review of Comics by John-Paul Atley, you really should realize that it was a lot of hard work. John-Paul Atley has been trying to bring back a classic comic that most people forget about.

You can see that Alterna Comics has really grown by leaps and bounds since they started publication in january 2021. The comic books are popular and they sell quite well. It's not only people out in the United States and the UK that enjoy Alterna Comics, they have just as much fun reading comics from their hometown newspaper in Scotland.

The success of Alterna Comics could really happen anywhere though, especially with the economy the way it is. Kurt Busiek comments "I don't think we would be where we are now if it wasn't for the internet. I mean, the web is probably one of the biggest things that helped us with Alterna. We've got a much bigger web presence than we did on the newsstands in the early days of our business."

Even with the economy the way it is, Alterna Comics has managed to grow and expand by leaps and bounds. This January, Alterna Comics went to a new level of success with their popular "New York Minute" series. Created by Greg Pak and illustrated by Ed Costello, the "New York Minute" was a four-part miniseries that told the story of how the characters in the book got to where they are now. Alterna also publishes a comic book every month and this was the first time that a comics publisher had brought a book to market by telling a short story in a short comic book.

Alterna Comics has also used the power of social media sites such as Twitter to spread the word about their books and comics. In January, Kurt Busiek created a contest on Alterna's website asking fans for suggestions on cover designs for the next New York minute book. Fans voted and more than seventy images were chosen from among them. These images will be used as the covers for Alterna Comics' new releases.

Alterna Comics' latest project, "Kurt Busiek: Creator of Alterna," will be available in stores in March. The book's main character, artist Kurt Busiek, has been described as a comic creator who has had a major hand in establishing his own genre of graphic literature. He was previously an artist and writer for DC comics and Marvel Comics, and has cofounded the alternative comic book and video game publishing company Alterna Comics. Alterna Comics is intended to release over twenty-five titles in its first year.

Alterna Comics now has an online shop and newsstand at the corner of Second Avenue in New York City. Several local comic shops have also signed on to be publishers for Alterna Comics, and the company hopes to eventually have them located in all of America's comic book stores. As Alterna Comics gains popularity it will be able to increase its presence and possibly take over the Marvel and DC comics territory. Alternativea Comics' creators hope that the success of "Kurt Busiek: Creator of Alterna" will launch them into the comic book industry's upper echelon.
