EXCLUSIVE: Comic Foundry #5 cover


Tim Leong has provided The Beat with the debut of the cover to Comic Foundry #5, featuring Bryan Lee O’Malley.

This fifth issue will be the last one of the magazine, but it looks to be going out with a bang.


  1. the tagline above the header–beautiful, kids.

  2. Oh I’m so excited about this, and so sad it is ending.

  3. michael says:

    the ‘suck it’ part is odd to me. how can you say that when you’re the one going out of business? O.o

  4. Oh, Tim. LOL.

    The mag will be missed.

  5. there’s no bad time to say ‘suck it, wizard.’

  6. @Michael: I’m assuming it’s a Tina Fey/30 Rock reference.

  7. Man…it was such a slick magazine. Too bad Comic Foundry entered in such a bad time. Print dying, economics.

    I wish them.

  8. Ben Morse says:

    Stay classy, Comic Foundry…oy…

  9. Can’t wait to hang out with you kids at NYCC. Sad to see CF go. But hell, at least you’re goin’ out in good ol’ 2nd grade style. F*ckin’ sh*t, man. Just like everyone else, love the tagline.

  10. jimmy palmiotti says:

    i am really upset about this great mag going away. wed, i am going to yell at my local retailer some more.

  11. This really was a great magazine. its too bad about the timing.

  12. I’ll miss this and Hero Illustrated.

  13. Comic Foundry is a wonderful magazine and I (and many of our costumers) will miss it ! Is there really no little chance to publish CF again?

    Why can’t “Wizard” be cancelled instead?

  14. If I had the skills to Photoshop a top hat and cane onto the cover, Ben, I assure you I would do so at this juncture.


  1. […] I’ll miss Comic Foundry, but the cover to issue 5 made me giggle, due to its completely juvenile tagline. […]
