After a hiatus of a few years, Comix Ireland is back in action. The return comes with some changes to the site and how it’s being run.
Effective immediately, Comix Ireland is officially no longer posting new reviews of comics. As our editor (Paul Carroll) became more involved in the act of creating comics, it no longer felt right to review the books of other independent creators in Ireland. For links to sites where reviews can be attained, see the About page. We’ll also be collecting reviewer info from outside Ireland for those who want to pursue an international audience.
Comix Ireland is officially focusing on news, resources and services to creators, beginning with a Creator Directory. The directory is still a work in progress; there are many more creators in Ireland than one person can categorise quickly.
The resources on the website will expand as more content is developed, based on lessons learned in making comics and readings of creative business materials.
As part of the services offered by the site, we’re offering to assist creators in the development of press releases and in the hosting of interviews.
We were only just getting used to our previous logo when things grinded to a halt. To revive the site, we’re revising the logo.
The new logo features art from several of our editor’s comics, including artwork by James Killian, Steve Mardo, Gareth Luby and Clare Foley.
Plans for moving forward
The development of this site will follow a simple path:
- Complete the directory
- Create a directory of Irish webcomics
- Regularly update the resources section
- Develop news and press pieces for small press creators
- Interview more creators about their work
We can’t wait for you to join us on this journey.
