UK Comics Creative Launches New Magazine and Website Showcasing Independent Comics

Something that has been growing for years has been the independent comics scene. Stuart Gould and his team at the print services company UK Comics Creative have played a big part in that rise, here in the UK. They have been responsible for printing a large number of successful indie titles that are released in the UK. Now they want to help that growth even further with the launch of UK ON DISPLAY.

On Facebook last night Stuart put out the following statement.

Hello to everyone involved in COMIC BOOKS including Writers, Artists, Colorists, Letterers, Publishers, Stores, Editors, Commentators, Reviewers and most importantly the Buyers & Readers. Here at UK COMICS CREATIVE we are proud to announce the completion and launch of UK ON DISPLAY – our NEW CATALOGUE is NOW available to purchase fromwww.ukondisplay.com – the Catalogue will be making its way into Comic Book Shops, Book Shops and other outlets over the course of the next few weeks. We are busy completing our ONLINE STORE and this should be live early January. You can now ORDER titles within the Catalogue by using the ORDER FORM on the site. We’d love to hear from as many of you as possible. We will be compiling issue 3 in January. Our initial intention is to print 4 Catalogues per annum with a NEW MAGAZINE popping up in between. We will actively market all titles throughout each month and issue a monthly update to include new titles as they publish. We will also be launching many other features including Art Prints, Hardcover Art Books, Event Management and COMICS BOOKS in SCHOOLS! You can also visitwww.ukcomicscreative.co.uk for information on printing and publishing. We look forward to hearing from you. SUPPORT INDEPENDENT PUBLISHERS

Speaking to Stuart today he also confirmed that their will be a digital version of the catalogue as well as a preview so that people can get an idea of what to expect from the magazine.

As someone who also wears that hat of an indie comic publisher I think this is a great step forward for the UK comic scene. The idea that rather than just putting the catalogue out there that the UK Comics Creative well be actively marketing and pushing the titles within the catalogue will be a great help to those indie publishers who are looking to get their word out beyond the world of comic conventions.  I hope that bookshops, schools and comic shops etc get onboard so they can see  just how much diversity and talent are out there waiting to be given a platform.
