Kickstart Comics Inc is a new publishing venture from Kickstart Productions - one of Hollywood’s leading production companies specializing comic book and genre properties.
Our motto is simple - make good comics for a wide audience. Kickstart hopes to reach both traditional comic book fans as well as a whole new audience by expanding the reach of graphic novel distribution to larger retail chains and book stores as well as your neighborhood comic shop. Comics for the masses!
Due to launch in October with our first four titles, Kickstart Comics plans to release twenty-two unique titles over the next 12 months. We’ve teamed up with comic stars Jimmy Palmiotti and Larry Young (owner of AIT/Planet Lar) to oversee and edit the initial run. The new books will be an eclectic range of great storytelling from top comic book creators and established Hollywood writers.
