Worksheets and Schedules for ICC Magazine Staff:

We will begin utilizing this website exclusively for greater ease of content creation, editing, images and selection of web articles for upcoming issues of ICC Magazine, not the other way around as done previously. Going back and adding articles to the website retroactively after publication is a time-consuming process and is only effective if two or more of the Staff are involved in posting to the site.

Hello! Welcome to ICC Magazine, a web-based magazine with contributors and artists from all over the world, Exploring the Infinite Universe of Independent Comics!
