A list of independent and underground comics publishers
February 11, 2008 1:00 PM   Subscribe

Contact information for comics publishers. I make comics, and am looking to get them published. I would like your help in compiling a list of as many book and comics companies which accept submissions, for underground and independent and art comics

The sort of comics I make are quite (well, very) niche things, so the sort of people who would even be interested in taking a look at them are very few and far between. Obviously I know about Drawn and Quarterly and Fantagraphics and the like, but finding information on other small press and arts companies (like, say, Redstone Press, who publish David Shrigley's books) can be difficult to find.

So if you know of any publishers, no matter how small (or big), who publish this sort of material, could you list them here?

Long shot, but you could try La Mano 21.

I don't know of any edition of the Writer's Market that's geared specifically toward comic makers, but it still might be worth flipping through a copy.

Caleb Monroe's Comic Creator Services is a pretty good list.

Not a list, but can you make this year's APE? It's all about indy comics and a great place to schmooze publishers.

IDW is the one my buddy works for. Hi, Casey!

I would go to a good indie comics store and look for things in a similar niche and write to the publisher, or like jamaro said go to APE. Put together a mini and hand it out!

Also, maybe apply for a Xeric grant to cover printing costs? Jason Little put up a few tips about applying for that.

I'm not sure I would qualify for a Xeric grant, as I live in the UK, but I'll certainly have a look. Thanks
