Origin Story

About

The Indie Comic Union is a collective of comic makers helping one another level up and follow through in our sequential art ambitions. The Union runs comic events like #indiefanartsand #indiecomicteamup on Instagram, hosts a YouTube channel to promote independent comics & collaborates on group projects like the Artery anthology or the upcoming collaborative comic, The Quilt.

Origin

The Union was founded in friendships made in predecessor chat groups on Instagram between fellow comic makers Bradley Littlejohn (The Seahorsie), Drew F. Lee (Incandescence Comics) and The Authorbot. Bringing aboard John Osborne (Frankenaut) and Kevin Curley (Buckets of Sighs) formed up the skeleton crew for our maiden voyage on a Discord server and beyond to create an inclusive, positive, support group for making all sorts of comics and navigating the wild tides of social media and publishing aspirations. We have since been joined by so many amazing creators and undertaken such wonderful new projects – all still in our first year! Phew!

Members

The Union is an invitational organization. We actively seek out comic makers who work well within a diverse group, lift others up and view social media as a collaboration rather than a competition.
