RED STYLO MEDIA (RSM) is an independent comics publisher, founded in 2008 by writer, Enrica Jang. We began with a successful Kickstarter campaign for Enrica’s first series, AZTECA, and continue to produce and publish original comic series and graphic novels.
In 2011 RSM launched a series of popular comics anthologies, Red Stylo Presents. A new theme is chosen each year and kicks off with an open call in January for writers and artists to contribute. The collections are published both digitally and in print in October each year. Over 250 artists and writers have been featured in Red Stylo anthologies, both aspiring and veteran artists alike, and the catalog also features an expanded digital library of titles and art.
Over the years, we’ve expanded to include three major projects:
Red Stylo Press
creator-owned imprint, editing service
In 2012, Red Stylo launched RED STYLO PRESS, a promotions and editing service, as well as an imprint, packaging and publishing cooperative for fellow independent publishers to gain exposure for new and ongoing series. As of 2014, the Press carries and promotes seven comics series, and is working in cooperation with The Inkwell Awards to package their annual donation and challenge books.
In 2013, Red Stylo joined with Odd Truth Inc., to establish WeWinCon.org. WeWinCon began as a modest promotion and fundraiser to help artists impacted when Boston Comic Con was canceled due to the then-ongoing hunt for the Boston Marathon bombing suspects. Since that first event, WeWinCon continues to raise funds to give to more organizations such as Wounded Warriors, Doctors Without Borders, and the International Red Cross.
In 2014, Red Stylo joined the community on Patreon to expand digital reach and audience for our comics, as well as promote the indepent=dent artists who contribute to our projects. Patrons subscribe for $4 a month and receive comics and special discounts in Red Stylo’s online store.
Enrica is the founder and editor-in-chief at Red Stylo Media. She is the writer and creator of Azteca, a comic series and motion comic, Angel With a Bullet, The House of Montresor, and editor of the annual Red Stylo Presents series of anthologies. Her screenplay The Freshmen was made into a short film, Frienemies, winner of a CINE Golden Eagle in 2011. Read more about her at enricajang.com.
