Canadian Self Publishers

Here is a list of links to Canadian comic creators who are producing their own comic books & zines.

If you are interested in discovering a new and interesting comic book experience, I’m sure you’ll find it here. Most creators sell their comics directly through their websites. As an inclusive organization the Canadian Comic Book Creators Awards Association support a creators right of expression, the CCBCAA makes no judgment about content.

This artist list was initially compiled via submissions for the Gene Day Award, but it is not necessary to have submitted to be listed.

If you see any Canadian Creators that are missing, or if you know of any links that are incorrect, please send me an e-mail at robert@joeshusterawards.com, with the subject title “Canadian Creators Links”.
