Graphic News is the first digital native comics journalism portal.
Graphic News is a project from the Cooperativa Pequod, wich was founded by a group of young people coming from the world of comics, journalism and communication, sharing among them a vision, passion and energy.
The project is made in collaboration with the association Mirada in Ravenna, reference point since many years for comics in Italy and crossroads for drawers and cartoonists from all over the world, and in the 2014 received the support of the competition Culturability from Fondazione Unipolis.
We think that comics journalism is today a reality capable of telling the complexities of the world we live in. We think that connecting journalism and comics offers a new lens to tell about reality. The first editorial staff team took up residence in Bologna. From here we start collecting voices from all over the world.
This is what you will find in Graphic News:
The choice of the web is not accidental: on one side news today moves on the web, on the other side this space allows us experimenting with new formats for comics, new formats of having news for the reader. Experimenting together with drawers new ways of creating stories, in order to give to the reader a unique and incisive reading experience, is the other core of the project.
Graphic News is first of all a bet. Its sustainability is something we want to build up involving in it our collaborators and our readers, in order to make this space comfortable, functional and sharp, making it grow starting from this first release.
