DIGITAL COMICS: ComiXology wants you to meet your makers
This summer, fans… Meet Your Makers – comiXology’s first summer event celebrating comic creators and the creation of comics. Each week from now until Comic-Con International ’13, comiXology will reveal a new aspect of the Meet Your Makers event celebrating the people behind your favorite comics and the act of creating comics.
“Without comic creators there wouldn’t be any comics to enjoy, so all of us at comiXology wanted to use the summer to have a celebration of comic creators and the creation of comics,” said comiXology co-founder and CEO David Steinberger. “We can’t wait until people see what we have in store for this event!”
“At comiXology we’re proud of our ability to help creators get their work to all corners of the globe,” said comiXology co-founder John D. Roberts. “And we wanted to take the summer to give back to those creators that have given us so much.”
As part of their commitment to creators, this past March comiXology debuted comiXology Submit, an easy to use self-publishing portal that enables independent comic book creators to reach comiXology’s global audience of comic fans.
Today, comiXology is proud to announce that it is a minor sponsor in both the Eisner Awards Ceremony and the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund Welcome Party that both take place during Comic-Con International. These sponsorships are just one part of comiXology’s commitment to the greater comic book industry and also give support to two comic book industry institutions that have aided and celebrated creators for decades. This summer also marks comiXology’s second year as a corporate member of the CBLDF.
Stay tuned for further announcements.
