With twelve new titles on their list, 2015 is shaping up to be Retrofit’s most ambitious year yet. I thought this might signal a return to their roots: they launched with a plan to publish one alt floppy a month for a year (they ended up publishing seventeen). But their 2015 list isn’t a list of floppies. These comics are different shapes and sizes (one of them will be a 100+ page book by Steve Weissman). I’m particularly excited about Olivier Schrauwen’s Mowgli’s Mirror. Previously, I had only seen the beautiful square bound French edition, which was a little too pricey for me.
You can get the whole list at $75 for print or $35 for digital. I really hate reading comics on a screen, and this is the first offering that’s really tempted me. I might bite.
And here’s an innovative bonus: if you get the print subscription, they’ll send a free comic to a friend of your choice. That’s a really smart way to grow you audience.
