A press release from our sister-site ComixMix:
ComicMix Pro Services today announced that it had signed an agreement with Indiegogo to be curators for graphic novel projects on the popular crowd-funding site. The contract means that Indiegogo clients will be able to take advantage of ComicMix Pro Services resources in editing, marketing, production and distribution.
Mike Gold, Editor-in-Chief at ComicMix Pro Services, said, “We are delighted to be partners with Indiegogo, and to bring our expertise to a new generation of creative talent. This is an exciting time in the comics business, and Indiegogo is a major force in changing the way the art of graphic story-telling reaches new audiences.”
Glenn Hauman, Chief Information Officer and Head Of Production at ComicMix Pro Services, said, “We’d been looking to combine the power of crowdfunding with our professional services to solve the fundraising, production, printing and distribution problems so many creators have been facing. We started to build our own crowdfunding platform, but Indiegogo’s been doing this for years. They worked with us to provide everything we need and want for our clients, freeing us up to do what we do best — make great comics.”
Evelyn Kriete, Director of Social Media at ComicMix Pro Services said, “This partnership between Comicmix Pro Services and Indiegogo joins two companies with years of experience and some of the foremost people in comics and crowdfunding. This is wonderful news for artists everywhere, who stand to gain tremendously in terms of creative independence, professional assistance, and the ability to interact and receive support directly from their fans.”
Indiegogo empowers people around the world to fund what matters to them. As the largest global crowdfunding platform, campaigns have launched from every country around the world with millions of dollars being distributed every week due to contributions made by the Indiegogo community. At its core, Indiegogo is the equal opportunity platform dedicated to democratizing the way people raise funds for any project — creative, entrepreneurial or cause-related. The company was launched in 2008 and is headquartered in San Francisco, with offices in Los Angeles and New York. For more information, visit www.indiegogo.com.
