Europe Comics

Europe Comics began as an idea of Franco-Belgian comics agent Mediatoon Licensing. It evolved into a 13-partner pan-European alliance, supported by the European Commission and held together by the desire to spread the European graphic novel heritage around the world.

One of its main targets is the creation of a collective digital imprint, replicating European comics’ variety, richness and originality, in English and digital format. This initiative strives for greater international exposure of European comic authors. Last but not least, this project aims to create a comprehensive European comics online directory.
