SATURDAY AM #71
BEAST MODE MANGA WEBCOMICS HAVE A NAME! It. is. Saturday AM!
We bring the hottest amateur webcomics to the table each and every issue, a virtual Shonen Jump but with more diversity!!
Our ELEVENTH ISSUE of 2017 is here and ITS' A RACE TO HISTORY!
IN THIS ISSUE of the BEST. DAMN. MANGA. DIGITAL. ANTHOLOGY ---
Saturday AM #71 continues our #summerofmanga!
One of the keys to our long-running DIVERSE SHONEN MANGA ANTHOLOGY is to create FUN and accessible new comics.
Saturday AM has MASSIVE ANNOUNCEMENTS and what better place to kick them off than one of our BIGGEST ISSUES with one of our MOST IMPORTANT series.
The #countdownto75 begins here in our 71st issue and we kick off with the series that LAUNCHED Saturday AM as a brand and magazine.
Meet Nilay Rao, an Indian-American main character, who is on a journey to be the NUMBER ONE player within our MASSIVELY MULTIPLAYER WORLD OF GHOSTS. Five years in the making-- this series combines the original idea with novelist, Alexander Oladokun and beloved artist, Oscar Fong. If you love YU GI OH and POKEMON - then get your fingers ready. This new title also debuts a new format that holds BIG PLANS for Saturday AM!
But that's not all -- some of our biggest series RETURN in this issue. PARADISE DOWN by Jaime Molina, SPOON by David Yoon, BETTER OFF IGNORANT by Otutuloro and Harvey, SOUL BEAT by Morganne Walker, and the one and only SAIGAMI by Hungarian Andrea Voros.
Likewise, we have two #summerofmanga titles for YOU TO REVIEW. What will you think of KASAI from Romania and MARA The MARTIAN from America.
For over 3 years and 70's issues we've set the standard for DIVERSE MANGA by not making it one race or one country or one gender or one genre. We make comics for EVERYONE by EVERYONE and what better way to celebrate our BRAND and MISSION than to appear at A MAJOR CONVENTION THIS SUMMER.

1. IS THE $5.00 COST A ONE-TIME PAYMENT?
A. Yes. We will notify you via e-mail of the next year subscription date should you wish to participate.
2. HOW MANY ISSUES DO I GET FOR THE $5.00 SUBSCRIPTION?
A. There will be 20 issues of Saturday AM launched a year currently.
3. IF SATURDAY AM IS BI-WEEKLY WHY ARE THERE ONLY 20 ISSUES A YEAR?
A. Saturday AM is still a start-up and with so many creators we felt it was important to build a buffer throughout the year. Many 'weekly' manga anthologies in Japan also do not ship all 52 weeks of the year so we hope readers understand.
4. IF I PAY $5.00 AROUND THE LAUNCH OF ISSUE 10 DO I GET THE PREVIOUS 9 ISSUES?
A. No. We DID offer this at one time but the integration to maintenance of a library was too much and we heavily publicized our exit from this practice in February of 2014. As of now, we offer back issues at $1.99 and offer discounted bundles regularly.
5. WHY ARE THERE INTERVIEWS IN A MANGA ANTHOLOGY?
A. We are a digital magazine first and foremost and featuring webcomics means that we want to shine a light on ALL DIGITAL CREATORS. We firmly believe that the next big thing in media will come from the digital age and while we feature some of the biggest names out there (like WhytManga, Creator of APPLE BLACK) --we will always strive to cover new talent whether they are create comics for Saturday AM or not.
6. WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO READ MY FAVORITE MANGA WEBCOMIC, LIKE BULLY EATER, WHEN I USED TO GET IT FOR FREE ?
A. We believe that webcomic creators are producing work as good as those from major publishers but given that they are independent -- anything could happen to prevent their great work from continuing. Injury, financial problems and the like are things that no one is immune to and so like you, Frederick L. Jones developed MyFutprint and Saturday AM as vehicles to help them continue their work to its' natural conclusion. $5.00 is less than some Happy Meals or Mocha/ Latte and yet, it will help to create an apparatus to keeping artists committed to their vision.
7. IF SATURDAY AM HAS THE HOTTEST MANGA WHERE IS MY PERSONAL FAVORITE MANGA WEBCOMIC?
A. MyFutprint does not operate like other companies and Saturday AM is not like other webcomic sites. We are not big enough nor do we really want to be a place to find any and every manga comic like some other websites. We would rather have a few quality properties than hundreds of comics for you to click through and we think if you try Saturday AM you will find some comics you like and others you had never heard of.
8. I'M LOST. I BOUGHT THE SUBSCRIPTION BUT SAIGAMI HAD SEVERAL CHAPTERS ALREADY. HOW CAN I CATCH UP?
A. As we mentioned before, the 'LIBRARY' of 2014 issues will be available for all subscribers but likewise, on our site we are going to have all existing chapters (prior to Saturday AM / Nov. 2013) uploaded in the READ MANGA section. Finally, expect details on our PRINT VOLUMES [SATURDAY TANKS] that will collect existing chapters.
9. I BOUGHT THE SUBSCRIPTION BUT CANNOT FIND MY ISSUES OF SATURDAY AM--WHERE IS THIS "LIBRARY"?
A. We are working with GUMROAD to resolve this and are investigating Cloud-Based Storage options as well. That said, the 20-Issues for $5.00 is a LIMITED TIME OFFER. Subscribers AFTER 8 March 2014 will still only pay $5.00 but "your mileage will vary". In other words, you will receive the issue available at the time of your subscription and all subsequent issues (i.e. start at issue 6 and you will get 7, 8, 9 through 20). In the meantime, customers should download the comic and save it onto their hard drive (desktop, mobile or tablet) in a folder that they can easily find/ recover.
10. I ONLY USE PAYPAL. CAN I STILL SUBSCRIBE?
A. At this time, we do offer Paypal for payment but it is ONLY for single issue purchases and not subscriptions We hope to correct this soon! Please keep checking the site and sign up for our OFFICIAL NEWSLETTER for details!
11. IF I SUBSCRIBE TODAY, HOW WOULD I GET MY HANDS ON OLD SATURDAY-AM ISSUES?
A. One would have to either buy the previous issues individually or purchase a the season packs available. The subscriptions are neither automatic access to all issues nor access to all already existing chapters of all our series. The only series on the site that have full up to date existing chapters online are from our AFTERNOON WEB-X LINE of free comics | manga.
12. HOW DO I JOIN SATURDAY-AM?
A. If you a serious creator, first join the PILOT MANGA SUBMISSIONS GROUP and make sure to READ the rules on the group and you will know all you need to join us. Once accepted into the group, you will join the AM community, learning from one another and improving your skill getting feedback preparing you for the manga|comic contests we run called "TEST FLIGHTS". Details on test flights are also made available on the group. The titles we publish are exclusive to us and creators still fully own their properties.
