We had a great chat with the GlobalComix founder at NYCC, and they’re all about making awesome comics available to everyone! They get that the comic business can be a rollercoaster, so they’re on a mission to help creators earn more consistently and flexibly. Plus, they want to bring comic fans and creators closer together for some awesome cross-cultural geekiness!
We believe that amazing comics should be accessible, no matter where they’re made, what language they’re in, or how they’ve been formatted. As comics fans who have a deep appreciation for the craft, we understand that the business of making comics can sometimes feel like feast or famine and that other times it can feel like shooting in the dark.
We set out to create a dynamic platform that could help readers understand the value of artistic labor and help creators earn cash in more consistent and flexible ways. Most importantly, we wanted to promote cross-cultural exchange and help comics fans and makers connect with each other in deeper, more insightful ways.
