CXC Manifesto

    CXC Manifesto

    We LOVE comics.
    We read comics, we create comics, we promote comics.
    But most of all we love Indie Comics.

    Indie comics are represented in the grassroots of creators learning their craft to the most famous artists and writers telling their own stories. And we believe there is a groundswell around Indie where it can become the next golden age of comics.

    We have no beef with the ‘big’ publishers because we sincerely love ALL comics but there is a unique place for indie and we are deeply passionate about growing it.

    And we believe this is our mission. Because our founders, as creators first, felt something missing in the comics world and as artists deeply understood what that was.

    And we will hold on to this as we grow. Our mission is to build the indie comic scene into a global movement.  One that introduces new creators and new stories into the world without the traditional barriers.

    And how does this make sense commercially for us? Because this mission is our ‘why?’ Our reason we get up in the morning.  And growing indie comics as a whole lifts us all. A rising tide lifts all ships after all. As indie comics grow, we grow and the more we can give back to readers and to creators.

    Indie represents everything good about creativity and storytelling.  Not bound by traditional rules or barriers. We are building a community of creators not only telling amazing stories but learning from each other and growing the community as a whole.

    A creator’s life can at times be a lonely one but we are there to support and grow everyone who believes in indie comics as we do.

    To that end, we are committed to empowering indie creators at every step of the process from learning their craft to promoting the end result and every painstaking process along the way.

    We won’t judge or censor content.

    We commit to listening to our community to make CXC THE hub for indie comics.  For readers to discover new stories, characters, and creators. To provide creators with everything they need to produce and sell, and promote their work.

    We will always protect your data and never sell it to a third party.  And we will only use any data we have for the purpose you provide it.

    But our main guiding principle is that as indie comic creators what would we want for ourselves and how can we give that to the indie comic community.

    Are you with us?

About The Author

Jamie Norman

Growing up in the UK Jamie noticed he was starting to change after unintentionally drinking a radioactive cup of English Breakfast Tea. Many years later his powers began to manifest including an ability to create bizarre stories grounded in reality. By day a Software Product Manager but by night a creative machine able to procrastinate on a creative idea for months on end.In my formative years, I was heavily influenced by the burgeoning talent coming out of the UK Writers Like Alan Moore and Neil Gaiman. Artists like Brian Bolland, Dave Gibbons and others who led the 'British Invasion’. I love to draw/paint but my real passion lies in writing. Current projects include a children's picture book, a near future Sci-fi crime story and a short submission for an anthology.I enjoy the usual suspects from the big publishers but nothing quite captures the unbridled creativity and raw talent seen in Indie comics. I was really proud to be asked to join ComixCentral as a contributor, and bring some of my product/tech experience to help build the best hub for indie lovers and creators on the planet.
