For the companies first release, they plan to put together a "compilation" called Occupy Comics It will include work from Mike Allred, V for Vendetta/Watchmen creator Alan Moore, David Lloyd, Molly Crabapple, Douglas Rushkoff and many more. Brett also talked about the project:
Itís become this monopolized walled garden where youíre only allowed to grow two things: superheroes and movie treatments. Weíre going to open new space outside the entrenched market where we can cultivate more subversive experimental and literary comics to reach broader audiences.
Wired has some art samples from the first release.
Comics and punk have a lot in common, being transgressive art forms with under-appreciated potential for social influence. Leveraging Mattís brilliant Occupy Comics model with Black Mask Studios might be disruptive, in a really good way, for both artists and fans.
