Saying that getting into the comics industry is easy is a huge understatement, but with the help of the Creators for Creators Grant, it can help you tremendously. The goal of the grant is to help creators of comics financially and intellectually by providing them with $30,000 dollars and mentorship from the founders of the grant. The mentoring will include every step from creative to legal and financial areas. After the work is completed, they will retain complete rights to their work and have the opportunity to have their work published by Iron Circus Comics and Image Comics who have both stepped in to support this grant.
The Creators for Creators grant was founded by Charlie Adlard, Jordie Bellaire, David Brothers, Kelly Sue DeConnick, Nick Dragotta, Leila del Duca, Matt Fraction, Kieron Gillen, Jonathan Hickman, Joe Keatinge, Robert Kirkman, Jamie McKelvie, Rick Remender, Declan Shalvey, Fiona Staples, Eric Stephenson, C. Spike Trotman, and Brian K. Vaughan.
