Comic Coma

A Comic Publishing House on the Web.

Latest Developments

First of all, if you have no idea what Comic Coma is, feel free to browse down the page and have a peek at the previous post.

As is the nature of start-ups like this our focus is changing and shifting as we figure things out. One of the ideas that has been proposed to me is of doing an anthology comic and I think that is a great idea. If you have been thinking about jumping on board with us but were a little worried about a time commitment this is the news you have been looking for. With the anthology comic I will be pairing up creative teams made of people who have expressed interest to me and we will put out issues containing three 8 page stories a piece. Stories will vary in number of parts and how long they are spread out over the issues or even how frequently they appear but if you are looking to try your hand at this and see if you have what it takes this is the way to do it. If you are interested in writing or drawing for the anthology and you want to be paired up to get started on a story send an e-mail to and we will get things started.

This does not mean we are not still taking submissions for full comics. If you have a full comic you would like to put together or are interested in developing one we are still taking pitches and portfolios for those as well. Just as when the site officially launches, there will be A couple that appear on the site in addition to the anthology. I’ve already been contacted by a number of artists and writers, and while I can’t announce anything yet, I am personally very excited about the news coming down the line in the near future.

I’d like to take this opportunity to go a little more in-depth with how we view our role in the world of comic creation. Comic Coma is a site created by people who aspire to get their particular form of art seen and read by as many people as possible. They are people with a story to tell and an image to impart. The work that these creators do is work they do because they love comics and they want to find a way to get their comics seen. Comic Coma is a network of creators who would have done there stuff anyway. It’s people who are trying hard to use each other as support in an attempt to separate themselves from the sea of the Internet.

What, then, is the benefit of working with Comic Coma? Sure, as a small company that doesn’t charge anything we can’t pay our creators. Instead, what we offer is a place on the Internet where they can put their comics up for free. Where they get the support of the other creators both in the form of cross-pollinating ads in the books to idea jam sessions with the other creators. They get complete creative control over the work they do with a group of excited comic lovers willing to do story editorial work whenever asked (more or less be a sounding board). Finally they are given an opportunity to reduce the cost of being your own comic publisher. Want to take your comic to print? So do ten other people on the site, and printing 1000 comics is cheaper per print then 100. A small booth at a major comic convention can cost up to $3,000 which is a lot of money to showcase the work of two individual creators. It is a lot more reasonable for all for an organization like Comic Coma to split with all of its members. Suddenly 3,000 dollars can become 200 dollars for the same service. That’s what makes Comic Coma worthwhile. If you are serious about trying to get into comics, this is the way to do it. Send us an e-mail, show us your stuff. Let us help you.
