Creators and Readers, Retailers and Comic Lovers of every stripe – welcome to the NEW ComiXpress!
Since I first took my background in digital printing and put it to good use by printing my own comics way back in 2003. … Since I started printing my friends and associates comics in small, affordable batches as they had the need for them. … Since I said to myself, “Y’know, Self, there are a lot of other cartoonists who could benefit from something like this … maybe we should put together a website …” in the early days of 2004. … Since the LAST time the indie comics family as a whole sat up and said, “Wait … what? You can DO it like that?”. … Since then, every day has been just another step on the road to Today.
Today, in an atmosphere where indie, self-publishing and small press comic creators find themselves facing new hurdles in getting their work into the hands of their readers. … Today, as indie-friendly comic shops find their options limited to more “mainstream tastes” despite their unswerving desire to support the creative spark they recognize as the life blood of our beloved industry. … Today, when options seem fewer than ever, there IS an alternative.
By combining the unprecedented flexibility that print on demand offers, indie comic creators can easily supply indie-friendly comic shops with their books. No print overruns, no back issue shortages. Stores can now order any quantity of any book in an ever-growing online catalog of incredible indie comics, and have those books on their shelves inside of a week. And we here at ComiXpress couldn’t be more proud to be at the forefront of this new era of indie comics once again.
