FULL BLEED is like Rolling Stone, the old Comics Journals, and an art book had a baby. A PRINT-ONLY 200-page hardcover “magazine,” curated and edited by IDW Publishing’s Dirk Wood and Ted Adams. By merging the best in comics, fiction, non-fiction, deep dive interviews, opinion, history, think-pieces and more, FULL BLEED is a reading experience like no other, and a beautiful addition to any bookshelf. Looking through an international lens, but filtered through the unique perspective of the IDW:PDX satellite office in Portland Oregon, FULL BLEED tackles all aspects of the creative culture, and beyond — comics, music, film, tv, fine art, photography, design, politics and more. FULL BLEED seeks total diversity: diversity in content, diversity in creator and contributor, diversity in genre. Every page turned reveals a surprise.

Given that ROLLING STONE was a horrible rag from its beginning, I’m not fond of the description of FULL BLEED as its love child, but such is life. Regardless, I love this magazine. The first two issues were fantastic–each works of art, in and of themselves, covering the full gamut of comic culture. Treat yourself to vols. 3 and 4–you won’t be disappointed. I was Kickstarter No. 3 and rather proud of it.
