Think comic books and images of Superman, Batman and Spider-Man come to mind. Release any new movie or comic book with either of those characters and they already have a massive name recognition which is three-fourths of the battle there.
While Marvel and DC Comics are truly megalithic giants in the comic book industry, there are smaller independent companies that are carving niches for themselves. I wanted to highlight one company in particular and that’s 215 Ink, which is based in Philadelphia.
215 Ink Publisher, Andrew Del Quadro was kind enough to talk with ScienceFictionZone about being an independent creator in the comic book industry.
I know, I know – it’s such a cliché to say this, but it really does seem like it was just yesterday when Science Fiction Zone was brought into existence. And yet we’re one year old this month!

As I was saying, in my previous column for “The DW-Time Zone,” before I was so rudely interrupted by Bells Palsy and Unemployment for the last seven months – Doctor Who rocks.
And while I was away, I spent a ton of time watching and re-watching the relaunched series with the Ninth, Tenth and Eleventh Doctors. Each were different. Each brought their own strengths and each brought their own weaknesses, but each of them needed a foil of sorts. They needed someone to show how clever they were, to show

So when I finally come across one that stands apart from the rest, one that really causes me to reconsider everything that I’ve ever known to be true, I know I’ve found something (or someone) special.
