London, UK (3 January 2017)  USA-based Alterna Comics along with the organization’s president and publisher Peter Simeti have been nominated as company of the year in the 2017 international TeenClash awards celebrating independence in music, art, media and business.


Founded in 2006, Alterna branched out into indie filmmaking in 2016 and released their first major motion picture the death row horror thriller The CHAIR. The film boasts an incredible cast including everyone from Bill Galligan to Naomi Grossman, Ezra Buzzington to Zach Galligan, wrestling legend “Rowdy” Roddy Piper to Kin Shriner aka General Hospital’s Scotty Baldwin foil to one of the most famous TV couples of all time “Luke & Laura.”

The event is intended to raise awareness of and funding for cutting-edge mental health research headed by psychologist and professor Dr Joel Vos of London and is in honour of Philadelphia native Linda M. DiTondo who died in 2015 and suffered from mental health-related issues including depression and bipolar disorder.

Voting for best indie band/artist, guitarist, bassist, drummer, media and business commences on-line the week of February 14, 2017, on Facebook

Winners will be announced at the end of a weeklong Punk4MentalHealth art/music charity fundraiser on March 31st, 2017 in London.  Nominees for the awards hail from four continents across the globe.

Mental health is something that concerns us all in one way or another. While bringing awareness and breaking down the stigma that surrounds mental health, this is also an awesome celebration of independent artists, creators and businesses.

After over ten years in business, this nomination is more than deserved. With Alterna’s announcement of their new comic line and Logos 2017 is looking like it is off to a great start for them. We wish them the best of luck at the awards, and for the content, they will be releasing this year.
