Advertising?

Post by mark84 »

Hi,
I part own a couple of small businesses, one of them designs and produces t-shirts that are what I guess you'd call 'geeky' - science, maths, obscure TV and movie references etc etc.
We like trying to give something back to the little guy rather than just throwing money at Google et al, and I think a comic would be great as I'd think it wouldn't be too hard to find one that appeals to a similar demographic as our products.
Ideally I'd like an independent comic (after having a poor experience in the past dealing with Reed magazine group) -which is UK based for late teens and older.
I'm ashamed to say the only comic I've read in the past 10 years was The Crow graphic novel so I've no idea about the comic market, could any one tell me any popular titles they think might be suitable?
Thanks for any advice
Mark.

Strip Magazine, 2000AD and Clint. Those are the only UK based comics for late teens and older... easy enough XD.

Oh yeah and Viz, but their readership is probably a bit different. They have a lot of small business advertising, though, so their rates are probably cheaper.

I think Clint's probably your best bet, followed by Viz.
