Digital technologies have had significant impacts on the production and reception of most popular art forms, and black comics present no exception. Many of the trends that have challenged the mainstream comic industry present new alternatives for independent comic creators. Opportunities for interaction among creators and fans have greatly expanded in recent years; web forums, social network sites, and blogs have become important hubs for the development of black comic culture. Creators and convention organizers now have a greater ability to market and promote products and debate with fans the artistic, ethnic and political issues that affect black comics culture. This chapter addresses the relationship between black comic art culture and the economics of the comics industry, and shows how access to new media and independent social and economic communities have helped further the development of black comics culture.
