Welcome to a Visionary Summer!

CMYK_LogoEver worked hard on something for a long time, wondering if it would ever pay off? Ever wondered if you really could live your dreams and make it real?

This summer, and the rest of this year is going to be that payoff for Visionary! A lot of the groundwork we’ve been laying for the last several years is coming together in exciting new opportunities that just keep getting bigger and better, and we couldn’t be more thrilled!

We’ve hinted at it over the last few months, planted a few teasers, but now, its time, time to start slowly pulling the curtain back on everything coming!

This won’t just be the big payoff for us, but also for all our fans out there, the ones who’ve rooted for us, and supported us in all our efforts, from our digital sales, to loyal convention fans, to our wonderful Kickstarter supporters. You folks have made this happen, so we hope you enjoy it all!

Join us on our main site, and all our ancillary sites, blogs, social networking etc. as we overhaul our look, our content, our brand, and start rolling out the best year ever! We’ll be running new features, posting new content, teasers for new comics, and be doing contests, giveaways and other promotional fun all to get everyone as excited as we are.

This is going to be truly Visionary!

Pardon Our Virtual Dust

Hey Visionary fans! You may have noticed our site just underwent a major overhaul! The revamp is to add functionality and feature content that is all part of our Next Stage Evolution we’ll be rolling out all through 2014. We’ll be in the process of reformatting all our main site content over the next few days, so don’t be surprised if things seem a little ‘off’ for the time being.

However, that being said, the new format will allow our site to render optimally for computers and devices, including your phone or tablet.

And the new theme will also be allowing us to launch our…

Oh, wait, I can’t mention details yet, but yeah, the new site is in part to launch our next BIG thing!

Meet Visionary’s 2014 Interns!

Cathy Dougherty In 2012 Visionary launched its first, official internship program in conjunction with its Comic Creation Course at Anne Arundel Community College. Two classes of interns joined, for a total of six interns, and together the group had nearly a full year of down and dirty comic creation experience!

The program was part of our Digital Publishing Initiative and gave aspiring professionals an opportunity to work on actual comic book publishing, submissions review, project management and development. They also received one-on-one supervision and training in creative skills, managing freelance work, and developing their own projects.

SarahWhen Visionary scaled back the Digital Publishing Initiative at the end of that year, the program was closed down as part of the re-organization.

However, Visionary is proud to announce that it has resumed its internship program as of 2014 with a slightly different focus. The new program will be a little more lean and mean, with fewer slots, and an increased focus on developing hard skills and active work on actual projects. Two candidates have already joined the program, and are already working on paid, professional projects, doing writing, color flatting, and editing work, all under CCO supervision. Meet Cathy Dougherty (actually returning from the 2012 class) and Sarah Louise Patterson, who is introducing Visionary to the world of cosplay!

We here at Visionary Central think you’ll be hearing a lot from these ladies as time goes by, and we’re very excited to have them on board. Check out all the details on our Staff Page.

A Warm Welcome to the Newest Member of the Visionary Family!

Our Ace Production Chief, Jacob Bascle, has produced something more than our latest comics! He and Katie Bardo have produced a son, Xander Grayson Bascle, born early this morning, February 9th! Mommy and baby are doing well, we assume Jacob is hanging in there as well. We here at Visionary extend a warm welcome to the world! With a middle name like Grayson, and a first name starting with an “X” this kid HAS to have a future in comics, right?

Happy New Year!

2014 New Year

From all of us at the Visionary Comics’ family to all of you and your families, we wish you a happy and prosperous new year! May it truly be a VISIONARY year for all of us, one filled with great times and new beginnings!

We can’t wait to show you what’s coming from us this year! It just may be our best year ever!
