began life as a free digital magazine, as a showcase of the diversity and colossal talent involvedin today’s sequential art (in other words, comic books). Created by myself, Kris Bather and DaveLapsley in Western Australia, ES’ three on-line issues have received almost 18, 000 subscribers onScribd.com as well as a Rising Star status on Issuu.com, with almost 80 000 unique page views sofar.Now, we’re moving to print, to see if you guys and girls dig our vibe. ES pilot issue has beenpublished to show you what we’d like to do on a regular basis and now it’s up to you to spreadthe word and support us in order that our pilot developes into a much needed regular comic artshowcase. We believe that the proof is in the pages in which today’s hottest writers and artists struttheir stuff, as you’ll see here.The next issue is being created now but if you want it to see the light of day then buy your friends,family and strangers in the street a copy or just tell them about how cool Angel Phoenix is and inparticular the must have buy that is Extra Sequential.We hope that one day this little limited edition pilot issue will be available via ebay for ten times thecover price!Cheers

So this is our mag and sadly, our last issue. It's been a long journey to these pages.For the first seven months of last year we created three free on-line issues dedicated tocomics and the wealth of talented people behind them. It took a lot of effort to maintainthe momentum outside of our normal day jobs and lives, so we waved goodbye to ExtraSequential in mid-2009. However in the time since then we did grasp two wonderfulopportunities to bring our humble mag to print. One of those opportunities did happen, ina way, and the second one from a different publisher was one of those, "circumstancesbeyond our control" scenarios. Oh well.Our aim with Extra Sequential was always pretty simple. In fact you can whittle it downto six words: comics are cooler than you think. We hope you agree with us. This finalissue is kind of a raw edition. Computer breakdowns, job relocations and two hoursdistance between us mean that frankly, this issue can't be as polished as our previousones. However, we wanted to unleash our hard work and let it be seen by more than justtwo sets of eyes, so we hope you like it and considering we're just two guys in Australiawho love good stories and pretty pictures, we're proud of what we've accomplished.Cheers, Kris Bather and Dave Lapsleywww.extrasequential.com www.comicbookjesus.comWords by Kris.
