Response to the announcement of Squidwolf Magazine has been overwhelmingly positive and more than a little invigorating. We’ve been working in secret on this project for a few months, and now that we have pages being designed and a warm glow inside from reading your comments, things are really shifting into high gear.

What I want to do here is clear up a few questions that were raised:

  • Squidwolf Magazine will be 68-pages in total, all in full colour, professionally produced by Squidwolf Syndicate, and published four times a year in English. It will be available world-wide. Availability will be limited – once we sell out of copies, that’s it!
  • All art and editorial content will be exclusive to Squidwolf Syndicate. All content will be original, likewise each feature. Rest assured that every sentence is lovingly crafted. We may raid the Project: Hazel archives from time to time, but we’ll try to ensure you get previously unseen material whenever possible.
  • Pricing will be fixed to $4.99 CAD and Subscribers will benefit from a discount.
  • And the name will always be Squidwolf Syndicate.
  • There will be proper ads in the mag, but never more than 14.

Again, thanks for all your suggestions. Keep ‘em coming.
