What is Odd Light Comics?
Founded under the statue of a topless mermaid in a Lower East Side dive bar, Odd Light is a New York-based company seeking the next generation of comic book creators.
We stand for the different—as our name suggests, we want to shine a light on the quirky nether regions of the comic book industry. So, while we’re huge fans of the work put out by the big publishing houses, we believe there’s still a ton of stories and voices they’re currently missing out on.
And that’s where you come in.
Our goal is to find, mentor and publish talented writers and illustrators eager to tell exciting new stories. If you’ve ever had an idea that you thought would make a great comic or doodled a character you could see becoming part of a long-running narrative, now’s your chance to do something about it.
Which means that, YES, we’re definitely accepting pitches.
But why Odd Light?
We’re four comic book enthusiasts (aficionados, connoisseurs, super geek-out fans—whatever you want to call us) from different walks of life with very specific, Liam Neeson-like sets of skills. We have each worked long and hard in our individual fields and have put our accumulated know-how together to create a professional, talent-centered publisher that will make sure your work is not only widely distributed, but also picked up by actual human beings.
So that’s the company, in a nutshell. And here are the nuts:
