A to Z of Grave New World 2016: K is for

Welcome to a Grave New World, where humans rub shoulder to shoulder with the monsters from folklore.

Carl Kolchak made a name for himself in the 1970's due to his investigative journalism into crimes that often dealt with Inhumans. While many of his early investigations shone a light on Inhuman elements the police weren't equipped to deal with, his later investigations began to lean more towards helping the Inhuman community against injustice and persecution. And by the time of  his untimely death, Carl had become an outspoken advocate for Inhuman rights.

In 2000, opened for business, the eMag focused on the lives, plight, and politics of the Inhuman community and the ebb and flow of inhuman-human relations.

Several of the original columnists have gone on to great success as novelists, news anchors, actors, and talk show hosts. At the turn of the century, being hired by and its mysterious Editior-In-Chief, Juno, was the opportunity to write your own ticket to fame and fortune.

While has had its ups and downs and even faced shuttering in 2013, before a successful crowd-funding campaign saved it, it has maintained a clear and respected tone in American culture.  Recently, the eMag adopted a patron model that has allowed it to sustain profitability.
