Devil's Due is a North American based comic book publisher and intellectual property development house. Many hundreds of issues of comic books carry the Devil's Due brand name since its inception in 2001. As the definition of "publishing" changes in this modern age, it becomes more than just writing and drawing. This involves a complex array of skillsets from project management to website creation, social media integration, marketing and event promotion.
Devil's Due is a brand that isn't afraid to embrace new, even risky concepts, for that is the only true way to create, incubate, and launch pop culture concepts out into the world.
We know how to cultivate our creators' tribes of fans and followers, delivering exactly what they want through our experience and infrastructure in ways both traditional and unexplored.
The following explains in greater detail Devil's Due's philosophy and outlook on the latest changes in the "publishing" landscape:
PUBLISHING IS DEAD! LONG LIVE PUBLISHING!
We are experiencing the demolition and rebirth of a new, more experimental, decentralized publishing industry.
Our "geekiverse"..."ComiCulture"... whatevery you call it, is changing, and the power now lies in the individual creators moreso than ever before. This power comes through new and developing technologies allowing writers and artists to cultivate their own followings, and monetize them.
Devil's Due is a cartographer in this new uncharted land.
Burn those old maps, we don't need them! It's time to get REAL about initiating and incubating the concepts and strategies that will carve out the future comic experience. It's time to boldly go where... well, you know.
Devil's Due has never been content to sit and wait for things to evolve, and after some mountain sized speed bumps the univrerse threw at the industry a few years ago, it's time to move forward. Now upgraded with jet packs and invisibility cloaks.
Gone is the need for traditional distribution monopolies and ancient sales channels. Be it digital exclusives, crowd sourcing, direct-to-retailer editions, or free content backed by big mega-corporate sponsors, what matters is the development of the concept & characters and getting it to those ready to enjoy the Hell out of it.
