SDCC 2013: Join the Comic Creator Connection Sponsored By ComiXology
ComiXology’s Meet Your Makers summer extravaganza continues with the announcement of comiXology’s sponsorship of the Comic Creator Connection – a one-of-a-kind meet up for comic creators that is presented by and takes place during San Diego Comic-Con.
The Comic Creator Connection (CCC) puts writers and artists together to see whether they can find their creative counterparts. For any writer and artist participating in the CCC, comiXology is guaranteeing marketing support on their platform through the comiXology Submit portal if they finish a project together within the next year.
ComiXology CEO David Steinberger:
When we came up with the Meet Your Makers summer event, we not only wanted to celebrate existing comic creators who have helped to make comiXology what it is today, but also new and upcoming creators who are excited about getting into the business of comics. We’re happy to sponsor this unique program and guarantee marketing support for creators that meet during the Comic Creator Connection and complete a project within 12 months of meeting.
The Comic Creator Connection event is held in two 2-hour sessions—on Thursday, July 18th and Friday, July 19th from 7:00 to 9:00 PM both days. During the event, writers and artists can sit down and meet each other in 5-minute sessions about their ideas. At the end of each 5-minute period, participants will get up and move on to the next person. If participants are interested in furthering the conversation, they place their contact information on a supplied card for that prospective partner.
Up and coming creator wishing to participate in the Comic Creator Connection can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

As part of their commitment to creators, this past March comiXology debuted comiXology Submit, an easy to use self-publishing portal that enables independent comic book creators to reach comiXology’s global audience of comic fans. ComiXology is proud to support all CCC participants that finish products within the year through the comiXology Submit portal and with guaranteed marketing support.
