EMG-Zine Retrospective - January 2008 - June 2008



Starting our third (!) year saw several changes. Annie Rodrigue stepped down from Behind the Art, and the reins were taken up by Melissa Acker. Giovanna Adams started a spotlight column, which would feature both historical and current artists, and we introduced two comics: Falheria by Erika Harm (a humerous spot) and a reprint of Tomb of the Kings, by Laura Melis (a graphic novel). Our first theme for the year was 'Dawn,' with a cover by T. Allison.

    *This article is probably my most intensely researched and possibly my most widely linked. It was written at the height of the Orphan Works panic, and was in direct conflict with a lot of the popularly shared pieces being written at the time. I learned WAY more about copyright and law than I intended to, and found it terrifically educational all around.
