AfterShock Media Announces a Partnership with Alibi
AfterShock Media – the newly-formed company comprised of top independent comic publisher AfterShock Comics and leading distribution company Rive Gauche – and literary management company Alibi have announced a strategic alliance, uniting Alibi’s roster of writing talent with AfterShock Comics’ diverse and expansive IP library. The joint venture will also focus on nurturing new, AfterShock Comic talent who will have the opportunity to be represented by Alibi. As part of this strategic alliance, Alibi Entertainment, founded and headed by top literary talent manager Jake Wagner, will provide AfterShock with a wide roster of top-caliber writers for its current and future properties.
Among the many benefits of this alliance is the ability to quickly match IP to suitably talented writers – a key advantage that buyers in the market are seeking. Similarly, a comics creator coming to AfterShock Comics with a project in mind will have access to a wealth of writers to swiftly bring their project to life in TV and film. As a publisher with a demonstrated commitment to discovering new voices in the comics space, AfterShock will also work with Alibi to identify up and coming talent to mentor and manage.
