Mysteria Maxima Magazine is a new Australian publication which will be comprised of SUBMITTED MATERIAL and special content curated by MYSTERIA MAXIMA MEDIA.
Each issue will feature comic strips, original artwork, short stories, interviews and other writings. Our aim is to celebrate the strange, the subversive and the surreal. To explore the esoteric and transgress the traditional. We hope to discover and showcase the works of emerging talents and to closely examine the contributions of the established. Of course, we’d like to avoid comparisons to existing publications, though you may consider this our attempt to offer an Australian answer to 2000ad and Heavy Metal.
We invite you to contribute by submitting material via email email@example.com scroll to the very bottom of this page to see submission requirements. Feel free to send us anything you think may be suitable for the magazine. Sending us your work doesn’t mean we will print it. AND we aren’t just going to steal your work for the magazine! If we feel your work is suitable for inclusion in the magazine then we will be in touch to discuss finer details. If you aren’t sure what to submit, you can work around our special designed “ORDEALS”
THE ORDEALS OF VOLUME 1
THE AUTOMATIC EXHIBITON. Automatic Drawing is a technique developed by the surrealists, as a means of expressing the subconscious.
