Name Required for New Infant

So we had a good number of people come over and chat with us over the weekend. We’re still in the process of working out the details, and what we need right now is more people to write/draw/edit/brainstorm with us. About all we can definitely say right now is that we intend at a future date to bring out a monthly comics magazine, as yet unnamed, and we’re looking for stories.

Actually we aren’t even sure if we like the term ‘comics’, but all the alternatives are either too lit-crit or too self-deprecatory. Personally I feel that ‘comics’, like ‘nigger’ or ‘dyke’, has high visibility for all the wrong reasons, but at least you don’t have to explain what it means to the aam junta. When people at banks or in train stations ask me what Kalpa is, I tell ’em shortly that it’s a comic book, having on several occasions tried to explain what a graphic novel is ( a novel that looks like a comic, dumbo). So the term gets a rise out of the great unwashed, and provides an opening for the discussion, whereas all the other terms just get you blank looks. But I’d be interested to hear your views.

Meanwhile, write in with naming ideas for the new infant.

Just for fun, here’s the Kalpa logo.
