Webber Agency provides a full range of services for our worldwide family of partners.
My history in comics, cartooning, and animation goes back quite a few years. At Andrews McMeel Universal, I led the team that created GoComics.com, working closely with classic comic-strips and creators such as Doonesbury by Gary Trudeau and Garfield by Jim Davis. GoComics was also an early phase mobile developer that brought the first comics to US mobile phones, with pre-iPhone comic reader apps and the very first iPhone comic book (fun trivia fact – the first iPhone comic was Jeff Smith’s Bone).
Moving to IDW Publishing, I managed licensing, digital publishing, and foreign rights. My role was to lead IDW development with a broad range of technology companies, creators, brands and licensors.
Partnering with Eaglemoss, a UK-based collectible business, I introduced and managed a high-end book line featuring Star Trek, James Bond, Ghostbusters, and many more - all distributed through Penguin Random House Publisher Services.
Webber Agency launched in 2016, with a mission to provide rights management solutions for comic and graphic novel publishers and creators worldwide.
We’ve built our agency with trust, friendship, and seamless efficiency. Proudly representing over 30 partners, we feature top-talent and a wide variety of genres. Webber Agency licenses comic titles to key publishers in all territories.
While our major focus is of course comics rights management, we also offer other consulting services.
Publishing Partnerships – end-to-end publishing program management, from launch to distribution.
Brand Licensing – connecting publishers with top-tier brands and creators.
Digital publishing – strategy, distribution, and product development.
Business Development – packaging, consulting, planning, and mentoring.
Thank you for your partnership! Jeff
