Comics and Graphic Novel
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 launched GoComics.com and worked with classic comic-strips such as Doonesbury by Gary Trudeau and Garfield by Jim Davis. We also brought the first comics to US mobile phones, with pre-iPhone comic readers 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.
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 28 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
