Our Mission

Capstan Comics is a Michigan-based independent comic book publisher with a passion for creator-owned work, intriguing stories, and unforgettable characters.

Our Beginning

Capstan Comics began in 2010. Our roots are in the belief that the comic industry deserves alternatives to the larger comic publishers who often overlook lesser-known writers and artists. Now more than ever, independent, creator-owned comics are an essential voice in the industry.

Our Goal

Capstan Comics is committed to publishing high-quality comics and graphic novels while allowing creators to retain ownership of their stories and characters. We are seeking to expand our list by publishing new titles and series. We are also adding new talent to our expanding creative teams.

Our Philosophy

Capstan Comics believes that sharing resources through networking is the best way to foster the current independent comic talent and to discover the next generation of writers and artists who have fresh, unique stories to share.

I have a comic I'd like considered for publication. How can I submit to Capstan Comics?

We are actively seeking comics and short graphic novels to add to our list. We are also open to discussing a pitch for a story concept. Our preference is to work with established creative teams, although in-house talent is available on a limited basis to aid in completing projects.

Submission packets should include:

  • - One-page synopsis of entire story arc
  • - Proposed format (graphic novel, comic series including projected number of issues)
  • - Script (5 to 8 comic pages)
  • - Artwork (5 to 8 pages. Prefer pencils/inks only. No lettering)
