Hello everyone!

I'm a girl named Charlie who used to run an indie comix publisher called the Sunday Syndicate. When we were up and running we had a number of different artists whose work was updated weekly, with plans to integrate more artists into the schedule. I also wrote a weekly column for the site with the aim of offering accessible education about sequential art and encouraging discussion of the medium as an art form. Unfortunately, because of a personal health issue and a lack of funding, I had to stop work on the Sunday Syndicate and wasn't able to return to tending the site until very recently.

I've been heartened to see the growth of the online indie comix community since I left, and am pleased that more and more artists are getting their work online and out to others (either through traditional distributional channels [a number of publishers have been popping up] or by self-publishing on blogs). This surge in the public interest in indie comix is a relief in a time when it seems like the broad discourse surrounding the medium is being restricted to big-name, "traditional" comics.

Though my initial intentions with the Sunday Syndicate were to focus on being a distributor and publisher, my goal was never a financial one. I had always hoped that the site could survive, at least at first, on donations and hopefully this Patreon can make that a reality. This is especially important now that I've reassessed what the Sunday Syndicate should be: not so much a distributor as a place for discussion and widening of definitions. I want to post work that pushes boundaries and explores what it means to be a work of sequential art, and I want to review and explore work posted elsewhere with a similar goal in mind: to offer a look at what is out there in this disparate community, and hopefully to provide a place where people can go to learn how to understand the world through a different medium. I want to give space and value to stories that aren't the sort that are usually told, and I want to explore the burgeoning alternative niches that have popped up within the underground genre itself, including that of the queer comix community.

With funding I can not only keep the site running (and get our domain name back!) but I can also hopefully eventually compensate artists for sharing their work and also recruit and compensate additional comix scholars to write for the site.

You can check out what we have up already over here to see the sort of work that's been happening at the Sunday Syndicate, but I'm working hard to get a site redesign up that will make navigating through content much easier and more organized. Thank you for your patience!
