2020 print SCHEDULE
Do you have a product or service that you think our readers would love? Advertising in our comic books is a great way to reach a new audience! Unlike other forms of print advertising, comic book ads are highly effective at brand awareness because readers go through the entire comic, unlike magazines where most readers tend to skip large portions that they are not interested in.
Ages of 7 - 12 on All Ages comics
Ages of 12 and up on Young Adult comics
Ages of 17 and up on Mature Themed comics
Our readers are generally familiar with social media and have accounts on twitter and facebook. Our readers also love supporting the works of independent creators and small businesses -- making Alterna Comics titles a particularly great place to advertise for any indie comic, film, musician, artist, author, web store, or local business that has a website.

Our circulation on most single issue print titles is between 3,000 to 6,000. Our comic books are distributed by Diamond Comics Distributors to comic shops across the world and we also sell and display our titles at nearly 100 conventions and signings throughout any given year. We also sell a large number of issues through our site store. At your request, your ad will also be posted on our Facebook and Twitter for no additional charge.
Payments for ads can be made via PayPal (preferred) or check.
