The boutique comics publisher Youth In Decline, owned and run by Ryan Sands, announced its 2014 subscription drive for its flagship solo-anthology Frontier over the long holiday shopping weekend.

According to the subscription-offer post, there will be four issues of the publication in 2014. Three of the creators have been announced. Issue #3 in February will feature three comics from the German cartoonist Sascha Hommer. Issue #4 in April/May will be a monograph featuring new work from Ping Zhu, a Brookly-based illustrator. Issue #5 will come out in September a be a Risograph-printed comic from Sam Alden. Issue #6, due in November, is yet-to-be announced; Sands told CR he is hoping for one of two artists and should be able to announce this person in early 2014.

The subscription offer gets you all four issues and various "goodies" including a nice membership card. It also, one guesses, provides Youth In Decline with some operating capital, a way to ballpark print runs, and a mailing list for future endeavors. I liked the first two issues of Frontier quite a bit and am generally bullish on Sands as a publisher. I think this would make a find Christmas present for anyone interested in this realm of comics.

images are, in order: from Ping Zhu; from Sam Alden; two from Sascha Hommer with the second being the issue's back cover
