Small Press
Independent Publishers

Small Press and Independent Publishers are the real hope of the comics industry for continued creative viability. Face it, the big guys are often limited by what they can sell to the corporate accountants running the show. Their myopic vision has focused the field down to a capes-and-long-underwear mentality that has slowly eroded comics readership to all-time lows. Don’t get me wrong, I love super-heroes, but comics can be that and more-- so much more. If the current trend is to be reversed-- if comics are to survive as a medium-- creative people like the guys and gals whose sites are listed below will be a major reason. Check them out. You’ll find variety, satire, adventure and more fun than a poke in the eye!*

Oh, and be sure to bookmark ol’ West Street before you leave. We wouldn’t want to lose a Streeter, now, would we?
