TradComics has a limited release schedule with at most one release from a party per day. This could be a single book from an independent author, a full series that's new to TradComics, or a collection of new releases from a publisher. We want to give indie authors pouring their passion into a project a chance to stand out. Therefore, it's unlikely we can publish every submission we get. We prioritize what we subjectively determine will be popular with readers.

If we have an opening to release your comic, we'll reply to your submission email to discuss the details and a release date.

We do not accept books that...

  • Use AI-generated images
  • Are purely pornographic or violent
  • Rely on hateful messaging or strawman characters

Revenue Breakdown

Artists earn 85% of sales revenue after payment processor fees. Payment processors charge $0.30 per transaction, plus a small percent of the transaction cost, typically 2.9-3.4%. For an example, let's say a customer purchases a $10 book.

A $10 transaction. After a 30 cent fee and a 3.9% fee, the remaining is split to 85% for the artist and 15% for TradComics.

The revenue for this purchase is $9.36 after payment processor fees. From this, the artist will earn $7.95 (85% of remaining, or 79% of list price).

Now let's look at an example where a customer purchases three books for $5 each.

A transaction for three books. The first is $5: $3.85 for the artist, $0.67 for TradComics, and $0.47 total in payment processor fees. The second and third books are discounted to $4.70: $3.86 for the artist, $0.68 for TradComics, and $0.16 in payment processor fees.

Payment processors charge the fixed $0.30 fee once per transaction. Effectively, it only applies to the first book. We pass these savings onto the customer as an incentive to explore more books by other artists.
