Who We Are
You’ve found this page, so we’re assuming you’ve poked around our website and read some of our comics. In case you haven’t, visit the Comicker Press site to check out the series we have running already.
Comicker LLC was founded by Saori Adams and Sean E. Williams, and launched with the Comicker Digital imprint in 2015. We’re a different kind of comics publisher. We publish our creator-owned series as ad-supported webcomics on Webtoon, collected issues on Kindle, DriveThruComics, comiXology, and hoopla digital, and now collected as trade paperbacks through our Comicker Press imprint.
What We Offer
As we mentioned above, we’re a creator-owned publisher. That means we only ask for the publishing rights to your comic; you keep all the rest. And unlike some other publishers, we don’t take a production fee, or charge marketing costs to you.
We’ll build the website for your webcomic, publish it across all our platforms, and promote it. All you have to do is deliver the awesome comic that you want to tell. We do not have any specific requirements for genre, story, or art – except that we require all new series have diversity (including race and/or sexuality) either on or off the page. To what degree, we’ll leave it up to you – you’re the creator, after all! We’re open to considering pretty much everything, and we’ll only give editorial notes if you want us to.
Pitch us the story you want to tell.
How We Work
This is probably the first bit you were wondering about. For all our series, we require a minimum of eight “Updates” per webcomic per month (two Updates per week). What this means varies from comic to comic – some creators divide a page in half into two Updates, while others post a full page of art for each Update. And if you want to post more than twice a week, we’re more than happy to oblige.
Depending on which method you use, that’s a minimum of only four pages per month! The reason we did this is because many creators want to work on more than one comic series, and many of ours do. With only four pages per month required, we give you the flexibility you want and need from a creator-owned series.
