A Message from
Our Founder

Being a working artist is hard. Crossing the bridge from comics to children’s books, or from children’s books to comics, is hard. Just getting started is hard!

I started KCU as a place to share resources and build connections among creators. It’s a place to make things easier for you. And more fun!

Don’t try to do everything by yourself. Join us.

More Testimonials

“I love Kids Comic Unite. Finding my community of peers has made a HUGE difference for me. I really value the interviews Janna arranges, from great comickers to marketers to editors, & more. I've learned a lot and it's made a tangible difference in my journey. Most of all: I've made new friends who let me babble on & on about comics - as long as they get turns to babble too!”
