Two Rival Publishers Join Forces To Bring Florida Comics To NYCC 2013
New York Comic Con is the comics industry’s biggest east coast event, and two east coast publishers intend to exhibit together with their flags raised high. New York has traditionally been the epicenter for the national comic book market, and beyond being a cultural hub, New York is where many staples of the modern comic book world were created. As South Florida-based publishers, it has proven difficult to get noticed by the larger comics community.
That’s why CREATURE ENTERTAINMENT and COSMIC TIMES have decided to work together to show New York (and the world) that South Florida produces amazing comics talent.
Though their philosophies are polar opposites, Cosmic Times publisher Martin T Pierro and Creature Entertainment EIC Juan Navarro share a vision where South Florida is recognized with Chicago, Seattle and San Diego as a legitimate force in the comic book marketplace. They intend to stand proudly as ambassadors for the Florida comic book scene at the New York Comic Con, to tell the world that with its unique style Florida has much to offer.
To help fund this endeavour both studios have put aside their differences and have created a Kickstarter campaign with several exclusive rewards. The focus of the campaign is the special “No Sleep Till …” collected edition, for the first time both publishers have set aside ego and are collecting the BEST that they have to offer into this 100+ page trade paperback.
