VANCOUVER (February 14, 2012) – Welcome to another monthly newsletter from Arcana Comics! We’re positively bubbling with excitement here today since there is just so much going on! It starts off by glancing left here at the amazing cover of The Intrinsic Free Comic Book Day Edition. We are astounded at the positive reception to our FCBD entry for this year and look forward to people having a chance to see the final product in just under three months!
The Intrinsic FCBD Edition is the first issue in a four issue mini-series featuring the thousands of characters from the Arcanaverse! This is Arcana’sfirst company-wide crossover and we can’t wait!
There are a few other changes going on for Arcana as well! First off, we have completely re-done our web site! Head over to Arcana.com and check out the new site and browse around. Everything is polished up, easier to navigate, and, we hope, someplace you will head to again and again to read up on our latest news and releases.
You may have heard a few days ago, also, that we are working with Benderspink, the production team behind some of the best movies around the last decade (HANGOVER, I AM NUMBER FOUR, THE BUTTERFLY EFFECT, and many others). Well, we’re doing a TON behind the scenes to get these projects moving and look forward to sharing more as time goes on. If you missed the release on that, you can read it by clicking here.
And last, but not least, are some new solicitations with previews and a feature we’re going to callArcana Primers. Our goal is to re-introduce you to some of our amazing characters at Arcana. Some you may have missed when they came out, while others maybe you were curious about, but never picked up. Well, here’s your chance! All of these books are still available through DIAMOND(their codes are listed with them) and through the new and improved Arcana Store.

With the coming of Intrinsic on Free Comic Book Day this year, we thought we’d start our primers out with the core group of Intrinsic, Kade, Kore, Candice Crow, and Philosopher Rex. These four books are still readily available and are self-contained stories. Characters such as Kade have multiple books out following the characters exploits through different eras and places (all full-contained stories), while the others are single books with the characters being revisited in the pages of Intrinsic, starting in May.
