Starting Your Own Comic Book Label - The HexComix Story

A few years back three maverick women - Lisa K. Weber, Kelly Sue Milano, and Lynly Forrest - started an independent comic book label called HexComix as a platform to promote and sell their comic book title Hex11. They've grown quite a bit since then and have started taking on other creators' work. They were recently nominated for a Dwayne McDuffie award for Diversity. Here, we will examine their decision to forego the traditional publishing routes and take Hex11 to market themselves.
