On Tuesday, veteran comics critics Daniel Elkin, Alex Hoffman, Rob Clough, and Ryan Carey announced the formation of Fieldmouse Press, a new, nonprofit publisher slated to begin its first project in January 2020. The first project is a website called SOLRAD, which will publish new comics as well as comics criticism, essays, and interviews.
According to a press release, Elkin will serve as president of Fieldmouse Press, with Hoffman serving as secretary/treasurer. Clough and Carey will round out the company’s board of directors as Fieldmouse aims to emphasize four pillars: “comics, critique, community, and collaboration.”
“Our goal is to provide a space for readers, artists, and the general public to explore the comic arts in the many forms they come in,” Hoffman said in a statement. “As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, our goal is to serve this community that we love and do something we think hasn’t been possible before now. And as a nonprofit organization, we can take chances that other publishers haven’t.”
More projects from Fieldmouse Press will be announced at a later date. For more information and to contact the team about the new publisher or other business related inquiries, visit fieldmouse.press.
