GlobalComix is the New Source for Source Point Press

By KevinPartnerships • May 6, 2021 0


Amazing stories can come from anywhere. They aren’t confined to the writer’s rooms of Hollywood, the publishing houses of New York or the stages of London. Narrative art can thrive wherever the craft and the vision to create them can flourish.

This reality is even more true in comics, where writers, artists, and editors can collaborate from anywhere in the world to bring you stories from every walk of life.

Source Point Press is a prime example of unique and expansive storytelling. The publisher started in the heart of Michigan but their catalog of horror, science fiction and true crime has grown a worldwide audience of adults and children over the years. Their creators span the...

A Tidal Wave of Real World Stories Hits GlobalComix

By gamalhennessyPartnerships • Apr 30, 2021 0

Comics aren’t just about superheroes. There are as many genres of sequential art as can be found in books, movies, or television. Comics also aren’t just about fictional characters. There is a strong tradition of biography, history, and journalism in the comics medium.

Tidal Wave Productions offers multimedia experience unparalleled in both the graphic fiction and nonfiction marketplace. Their titles include in-depth explorations of prominent figures across the political and entertainment spectrum, with features ranging from Betty White to Stormy Daniels...

April Feature #8: Monday Funday

By KevinFeatured Comics • Apr 26, 2021 2


Welcome to the last week of April! To close out the month, let's take a look at a handful of comics with humor to help us get through the week ahead. Read on for the selection, and let us know what makes you laugh in the comments!

1. Bottoms Up: Hard Liquor, Joe Cabello, (cc/ @cabellocomics)

Suspense horror where the killer is... a bottle of booze.

An alcoholic party girl on the brink of going sober partakes in one last night of drinking with her friends, but a deadly bottle of booze may truly make it her last drink.

An homage to Street Trash (1987) and the iconic body horror of the 80s, Bottoms Up: Hard Liquor is full of melting bodies, suspense, and a dash of 80s horniness.

GlobalComix Exclusive: The Jonesey and Dr. Long Adventures by Unlikely Heroes Studios

By KevinPartnerships • Apr 23, 2021 0


We’re excited to share an amazing new series that you’ll be able to access exclusively through GlobalComix or the publisher’s Patreon. The Jonesey and Dr. Long Adventures, published by Unlikely Heroes Studios, is written by John Pence (The Surgeon, Up from the Skies) and drawn by Maxim Mel (Do Well Camp with Max Bemis, Fractured Scary Tales).

The series is a loving send-up of, and homage to, the two-fisted, gin-soaked, nicotine-stained Sunday comics of the 20th Century with a pretty smooth 1:1 ratio of action and jokes. Comics fans and scholars will see nods to legends like Steve Canyon, The Phantom, or The Spirit, all built in a world of animal characters and dripping...

A Wave Blue World Washes Over GlobalComix

By gamalhennessyPartnerships • Apr 13, 2021 1


Comics are art and all art is political. The most memorable comics embrace this reality. They use narrative sequential art to convey relevant stories that both speak to the social climate of the moment and serve as a beacon for the future.

A Wave Blue World (AWBW)

From the New York Times featured books like American Terrorist and All We Ever Wanted to classics like From Hell’s Heart and Phantom of the Opera, AWBW has always focused on socially conscious storytelling and providing a platform for a multitude of creative voices.

By KevinFeatured Comics • Apr 5, 2021 0


Welcome to April feature #2! Whether near or far into the future, cyberpunk stories are all about lives being altered -- quite literally -- by technology. But there's always more to that story, because beneath the machine there's always a human still in charge.
