Meet The Independents Special: The Comics (2014-2017)

In 2013, we published our first Indie comic pull list. We were in the process of putting more focus on indie comics and creators than we had done in previous years. Over the next few years, we reached out to many independent creators and have put in the time to not only get to know more about their characters and comics, but to get to know more about them on a personal level. The results of that new focus have been more inclusion of indie characters in our database, more reviews of indie comics, and most importantly. A better relationship with both fans and creators of Independent comics.

To that end, instead of doing another interview, we decided to go back and list the comics that are not only represented in the various interviews we have done, but also mention a few comics from some of the creators that we have worked to build solid relationships with during that time as well. This is by no means an all inclusive list, nor does it come close to representing the various relationships we have built over the last four years, instead, this is a sampling of the books that were brought to our attention by both fans of the website and the many creators out there. Like wise, we cannot begin to list all the Comic companies and publishers that we have made contact with, but believe me when I say, we appreciate each and everyone of you, and we are looking forward to a continued successful relationship. We know you all will at least recognize many of the titles, and if you have yet to dive into them, please take the time to do so and also, continue to support indie comics/creators.

    This is a good list for anyone that wants to get started supporting African American comic properties. I hope to be a part of your next post 2018 – 2021 titles.
