To most people, comics are Marvel and DC. There are entire worlds beyond them, the indie comic publishers, and that is what this site is about, following all the news and movements of independent comics.
For this, independent comics specifically refers to comics not pubsished by Marvel or DC or one of their imprints. This may not be the best definition, but it is the best one that can be explained easily.
Because there are already hundreds of other places that do? I really like Marvel and DC, but I have always been more strongly drawn to the independent comics, and I wanted a place dedicated to them. I couldn't find quite what I wanted, so I'm making it myself.
