Journalism & Comics Combine at Symbolia

On today’s edition of the Morning Media Menu, we talked about Symbolia–a new digital magazine that combines journalism and comics.

You can pitch Symbolia a story idea, customizing your pitch as a journalist, an artist or both. AppNewser has more about Symbolia:

Symbolia offers readers a new way to read the news. The self-described “tablet magazine of illustrated journalism” combines reporting with illustration and comics to inform readers of the latest in current events. Each issue has a few stories on current events which are told through comics, audio, graphics, animation, and long-form writing.
