GlobalComix is now in public beta!

By GlobalComix on Aug 5, 2017

After more than 3 years of hard work and dedication, we are excited to open up the doors to our brand new comics platform, GlobalComix. We believe it represents the first steps in changing the course of digital comics publishing.

Books, music and videos have found ways to leverage the potential of the Internet, while comics remain largely sold and distributed through what are essentially online and proprietary book stores. We are here to change that. By making global digital comics publishing as easy-to-use and accessible as possible, and providing artists and publishers the tools they need to reach out directly to an audience, we hope to usher in a new era of comic publishing online.

Our goal is to provide a complete platform where people can read, publish, translate, discuss, and help fund comic creators from anywhere in the world.

We’re just getting started, but here are some things you can do right now:

Free Publishing


You can become a Creator and make a page for your comics. Once you publish work, people can follow you and get notified whenever you upload new content. We support comics, graphic novels and manga, as well as individual strips/pages. Sharing a comic with someone is as simple as sending a link.

Community


GlobalComix is built from the ground up to be a community. We have feeds, forums, notifications, and messaging. You can start or join discussions, comment on releases, send messages of appreciation, and follow creators or titles that interest you. There are many ways to connect with fans and fellow readers, and we’re excited to get as many people onboard and involved as possible.

Donations


Creators can accept donations from readers and set monthly goals in a transparent way. We want to make sure we provide easy ways for people who create and publish to get rewarded for their work, and donations are the first piece of the puzzle toward fully reader-supported comics. 

Creator tools


One of the key features of GlobalComix is our Creator Tool. It lets you to easily set up panel-to-panel transitions which will make reading your comics on a mobile device much more enjoyable. You can also add dynamic, editable text on top of your comic for future translation. And best of all, there’s nothing to install or update. It works right in your browser. You can try it here.

In addition to this we’re currently working on some exciting features you can expect to see in the future:

Comic translations and custom fonts
We’re working on some great tools for crowdsourced translations. This is a game changing concept that will let you easily bring your comics to entirely new markets and audiences. We’re also making tools that will let you upload and use your own fonts and typefaces.

Statistics and insights
We’re building a dashboard to provide Creators with new and novel insights about their comics. We want to provide answers to questions like “Which releases are most popular?,” “What panels do people spend the most time on?,” “How much time does the average reader spend per comic?” and so on...

Comments/Reactions on panels
We’re building functionality that will let people react to specific panels in a comic. We think this will change the way people interact with comics, by letting readers share and comment on specific sections of the story.

If this sounds interesting to you, please join us, spread the word and help shape the future of digital comics publishing. We’re looking forward to your ideas and feedback to help make this platform as great as possible. If you find bugs, make sure to tell us in the Bug Reporting Forum. If you have feature suggestions, please share them in our Suggestions Forum.
