January issue makes waves
Have you heard? Volume 57, Issue number three of The Curling News has been out for a while now… and we’ve done something new on the cover.
We’ve created curling’s first comic-book superheroes, starring Canadian Olympic team curling skips Brad Jacobs and Jennifer Jones!
There’s a cape, a mammoth (curling) weapon, some unexplained, mystic powers and even superhero logos. And although we are teasing you by obscuring the artwork (at left), we at TCN headquarters been receiving lots of enthusiastic feedback about this.
What’s next, curling-themed comic books? T-shirts? Toy costumes for Little Rock curlers?
This theme was crafted by amateur comic-book artist Adonis Howard – who has the best name EVER – in the aftermath of the Canadian Olympic Trials, where both the Jacobs and Jones squads destroyed their opponents to earn trips to next month’s Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia. The boys from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario went undefeated – an unprecedented Trials feat – and Winnipeg’s Jones gang, apart from one messy loss, played head and shoulders above the other women’s contenders.
We’ve got more, more and MORE from the Trials and the curling world inside this January issue. Fans will note a fresh design on the cover and other new elements inside pages, and we’ve also got one the biggest Curling TV/Web Guides we’ve ever published. Believe us, this one is jam-packed with regional, provincial, state, national (multi-nation) and international curling coverage for all of January and early February, all available on one page. We’ve even got all the details on the upcoming women’s and men’s Canadian provincial championship coverage, which crosses over various networks and is joined-in-progress in a few scenarios. You can’t even find this info on some of the broadcaster’s own websites!
In our next super-sized February issue, we preview the Olympic curling spectacle like no one else can, plus everything else ongoing in this incredibly busy curling season.
