2010 here we come!

Friday, January 1st, 2010

2009 was a big year! It was an awesome year for many people I know personally, and it seemed like politically and financially the whole country was biting the big one.

A milestone you may have missed in comics was a former GAMmer, Erika Moen, ended her personal and quirky journal Comic called DAR: A Super Girly Top Secret Comic Diary. The comic began in 2003 and was included in one of Girlamatic’s original line-ups. We’ve been cheering on Erika ever since her departure from GAM toward her journey becoming a freelance artist! We’d like to give a shout out to Erika on this awesome 2009 milestone, and wish her a fabulously happy and exciting 2010!

Also in 2009, we announced the return of Chasing Rainbows by the enigmatic Svetlana Chmakova (Dramacon and Night School)! We’re immensely excited to have Svet back on one of our most anticipated series!
The start date will be announced soon! Stay Tuned!

If you haven’t yet heard our December podcast please check it out!

2010 Will hold a lot of new adventures for Girlamatic as a magazine, as well as publisher. 2010 Will see the first Girlamatic print magazine collection with your favorite comics to hold in your hand! Plus much much more by new and old GAM creators alike!

We’ll also be starting a Ustream and You Tube channel and we’ll be welcoming submissions in all media very soon for that!

Girlamatic of 2010 will also get a new coat of paint and some better features! Hold on to your hats folks :)

See you soon!

#webcomicwednesday

Wednesday, August 12th, 2009

So, I was going to tell everyone this morning that our NEW column launched: GEEK CHIC! A Humor & Advice column on actual fashion for every geek girl and boy. BUT YOU GUYS ALREADY FOUND IT! Click here to see the comments Ms. Leia is already getting and add your own!

That’s not all! This is Girlamatic! If that was all, you’d be on some other site somewhere else. ;)

If you “Tweet” you know what # means….okay,so those two things don’t go hand-in-hand.

The service’s [Twitter] application programming interface (API) allows other web services and applications to integrate with Twitter. Searches on the system make use of hashtags, words or phrases prefixed with a #. A search for “comics” would turn up all messages that included #comics.
-From Wikipedia

So, if you’re on twitter you may have seen #webcomicwednesdays. This along with #makecomics #comics #readcomics and #webcomics, have all been rapidly circulating through the webcomic universe on Twitter. Specifically, Girlamatic uses all of these to highlight certain tweets about updates, new content and exciting news happening on Girlamatic.com!

Well, we’ve got some milestones coming up on Girlamatic, so following us on twitter is the easiest way to get the latest from this site about all news, and related fun stuff.
I want to use Webcomic Wenesdays to give you guys an overview of the week, and tell you what’s headed your way the rest of the month:

Get ready for The Continentals launch. And ALL NEW Graphic Novel project from the Glyph Award nominated team who brought you G.A.A.K and the artist of the teamUA Frontiers.

The Continentals: It’s like Sherlock Holmes meets the TV show “The Avengers” with a dash of James Bond for flavor.

We’re excited for it to be apart of Girlamatic coming at the end of this month!

Be on the look out also for our tweets about our 7 year Gammiversary! 3 short years ago comics like Compass and Galaxion joined the Girlamatic Roster. Seven or more years ago comics like Spades, Bite Me, Jeepers, Gypsy and others joined. Some Finished others still going strong! And now we’ve got three 4 new comics starting. We’ve got some goodies in store for you beginning in September for our big 7th year.

Also NEW COMICS are: Li’l Mell, Mad Sugar, Compass, Five Star, Spades, Godseeker, Shrub Monkeys and Real Magic!

Check back everyday for more new surprises!
Laters,

Welcome to Girlamatic!

Tuesday, July 28th, 2009

Welcome to the newly relaunched Girlamatic.com. We hope to fit right into your social networking/comics loving/art craving/media devouring life style, and also make you stop and think, maybe once a day….as much as is healthy ;)

Much more in the works! Check back everyday this week for new things! Check out the Launch party window to see what GAM creators have done to celebrate Launch!

I wanted to say a quick “Thank you, you’re awesome!” to Brigid Alverson over at Robot 6. She interviewed me for her column, allowing me to break the “silence” on what’s going on under the surface here at Girlamatic, and well…The surface has been obliterated.

More soon! :D
