MERC IS COMING TO YOUR LOCAL COMIC SHOP!
We are excited to announce that MERC Publishing has partnered with Lunar Distribution! Your local comic shop can now order our comics along with Scout and DC Comics. Miss Meow #1 with all new interiors is available in this month's catalogue for May FOC.
With big news comes big responsibilities, so our team is expanding! We are honored to welcome two editors to the MERC team.
Aaron Sparrow is our lead editor and creative director.
Aaron Sparrow broke into the comics industry as a copy editor for Tokyopop, eventually moving on to write English adaptations of manga titles such as Devil May Cry 3, Hyper Police, the critically acclaimed Dragon Head, as well as the story “Family Values” for Blizzard Entertainment’s Warcraft: Legends anthology. In 2009, Aaron became the Lead Editor on Disney/Pixar/Muppets titles, developing their all-ages line and masterminding the triumphant return of Disney’s Darkwing Duck with artist James Silvani. Aaron has also worked on comic books with DreamWorks Animation and Sesame Workshop, and returned as writer to Disney's Darkwing Duck monthly comic series in 2016. His work can most recently be seen on season 4 of HBO Max's animated series, Young Justice: Phantoms.
Joe Corallo is the editor of Born of Blood and our creative consultant.
He is a freelance comics editor who has worked with ComicMix, Black Mask Studios, A Wave Blue World, ComiXology Originals, and more. The Mine! anthology he curated and co-edited garnered an Eisner nomination for Best Short Story and won the Ringo Award for Best Anthology in 2018. He also edited the GLAAD nominated Oh S#!t It's Kim & Kim and the Ringo nominated Dead Beats: A Musical Horror Anthology. In addition to being an editor, Joe has written for Vault Comics, Mad Cave Studios, TKO Studios, and contributed to multiple anthologies including the Ignatz nominated Dates Vol. 3.
With the addition of Aaron and Joe, MERC Publishing takes another step towards making even better comics!
