Andromeda Issue 3, comic anthology based in Pittsburgh, PA

Andromeda is a comics anthology based in Pittsburgh, PA. It is published independently on a monthly occurrence. The majority of the content found in Andromeda is provided through contributions from artists, cartoonists, zine-makers and writers. This list is sure to expand.

Andromeda seeks out talented and dedicated individuals wherever they can be found. The publication itself aspires to establish a creative platform in which to project expression and artistic experience


Andromeda is a new monthly comic anthology, featuring and exposing emerging artsts as well as established creative individuals. In the second issue we experienced a wonderful array of cartoonists, writers and artists most of which are from the Pittsburgh area. For the third issue I requested that all submitters work within the theme of "art school". The body of work that was received exemplified beautifully the painful and joyous encounters associated with an art education. So take a deeper look into the dark underworld of the art schools in America.

24 pages total including the cover, black and white.
Work from 8 different artists including:

Andy Scott
Jes LaVecchia
Steph Neary
Nate McDonough
Megan Shalonis
Maggie Negrete
Michael Madsen
Tom Dewing

Expect to see Issue No. 4 sometime in the beginning of August 2010.
