The Comics Bolt is a website that reports on various geek culture and news including comics, movies and TV. The website is a follow up to the Comics Alliance and has been established by Phoenix Shanklin (aka Phoenix Da Nerdette).
After our launch party (more info here) I got something particularly awesome in our inbox, a number of commissioned kawaii pics based on the characters by Phoenix, which we have posted below (for those who don’t know, kawaii refers to a cute Japanese style of art, but also arguably this has extended to other forms of cute styles like Funko Pops).
So this in and of itself is awesome – incidentally if you would like to commission Phoenix Da Nerdette to make some kawaii head art for you then contact her here.
However to top it off, I am also happy to say we are now also affiliates with The Comics Bolt. Phoenix has done an incredible job creating a community around pop culture news, reviews etc. This means we’ll be able to get updates to them and further spread the word about the new comic (you can now order Reynard City Chronicles for download and print here)
Furthermore, if you are interested you can also become part of their community as a writer. As someone who has worked as a freelance writer, I recommend working for sites like this as it helps you get the discipline you need to write regularly and some much needed experience (more info below).
Finally, we would love it if you could support them by following The Comics Bolt on Twitter and sharing any #BoltUpOnComics posts. Big thanks to Da Nerdette and everyone in the Twitter comics community that have supported Reynard City, we look forward to working with you!
