The MMC Arts Grant
The Xeric Grant was a force in comics self-publishing. It helped bring names into the public eye that we may not have seen otherwise such as Jason Shiga, David Choe, Jeff Lemire, and Tom Scioli. Many of these creators have talked about how the Xeric changed their career path – not because it was a huge amount of money, which it wasn’t, but because it meant something to creators. It carried with it a certain level of prestige and the ability to reach a wider audience.
With that we have created an arts micro-grant program. This grant will give a small amount of cash directly to creator(s) to assist with small press and self publishing in the comics industry. We will have an application process and deadlines from which we will select finalists and winners. The money for this grant will be supported by the comics we publish. If all goes as planned we will be able to give out the first of these grants mid next year. In the spirit of Ed and Jim and the Cartoonist Kayfabe community that we are part of we named it the Make More Comics Arts Grant, or the MMC for short.
This means that you will be paying a bit more for all future issues of H%C but rest assured that the extra money is going to not only pay creators for their work, but also to fund a grant that will help publish even more new and exciting comics. To follow all news and information on this project check out our new website at 100percentcomics.com. I hope that everyone who reads this can get behind the idea and help us move closer to making this grant a reality.
Thank you all again for your support.
