Hunting high and LO: The Miami Herald looks at LO-FI, a new "comics and entertainment magazine that showcases the work of independent comic artists and musicians while leaving room for mainstream stuff":
Aimed squarely at the 17- to 25-year-old crowd who grew up on Star Wars and Nintendo, LO-FI also aims to take the geek out of comic, or at least make comic geek cool.
The second issue premiered Ben Templesmith's Wormwood, a series that will be exclusive to the magazine. Dark Horse editor Scott Allie, for one, is impressed with what he sees. "'I was blown away by the production quality and the density of information. The industry has very few magazines of this kind of quality, and the amount of work that goes into creating these books is impressive.''
