I wonder if some of these smaller comic houses would work together against the behemoths of Millenium and Chicago... BoArthur 15:39, 3 September 2009 (UTC)

Good idea. Cross-universe storylines might be a lot more common among the smaller outfits than things like the DC/Marvel crossovers are *here*. Hmmm... Tiger Warrior and the Bayoux Beast... Apart from sounding like something from WWE, it might be fun. - Geoff 14:18, 5 September 2009 (UTC)
I agree! In *our* world, a series of smaller publishers like Icon and Dark Horse and Image have arisen, offering such diverse characters as Hellboy, Spawn, The Umbrella Academy, Invincible, Wildstorm and a really excellent anthology series called Astro City. Some titles died out. Others were purchased by DC. Some have changed hands many times. Many ended up dealing with the kinds of stories and characters rarely if ever mentioned by the comic book giants (including a Batman-type and a Superman-type who were lovers and eventually got married). I would suggest that several smaller comic book houses might want to combine to start a new line--a specific universe from which to build and aimed at an international audience.

I like this a lot! This "common universe" of yours would provide a unifying milieu in which these crossovers could occur, but each of the participating houses might develop different characters and different areas of that world. But you wouldn't get the same kind of artificial feel that the DC/Marvel crossovers always had - the mechanics and backdrop of each universe were sufficiently divergent that, for example, Superman and Batman always feel "wrong" in the Marvel universe, and vice versa with the X-Men in DC.
You'd also have the potential for massive trans-house "world-altering" storylines that could assist the various smaller houses to gain ground in each other's home domains. Superb! And very IB, too. - Geoff 16:21, 5 September 2009 (UTC)
Coolness. I started a discussion about this with the group. Tentatively, I suggested the name Kovenant Comics. What do you think? Zahir 19:18, 5 September 2009 (UTC)
Can we please at least spell "Covenant" correctly? Mis-spelled words in names of things make me cringe. - Geoff 20:11, 6 September 2009 (UTC)
Such was deliberate, but I'm not married to it. In fact, my own preference would be for some different name. Zahir 03:39, 7 September 2009 (UTC)
How about Alliance Comics, if we're going that route rather than my alternate selection on Conculture. "Covenant Comics" does have a very NAL-ish tone to it, now that I think about it. "Alliance" has far less direct NAL connotations. - Geoff 03:32, 9 September 2009 (UTC)
what about "Black Sheep Comics". It is a nod to the similar company Dark Horse *here* and it show that they are "different".--Marc Pasquin 20:59, 9 September 2009 (UTC)
No objections to Alliance over Kovenant... BoArthur 15:46, 9 September 2009 (UTC)
I like it, Marc. Fits into IB with our odd penchant for things like SNOR and such, too. BoArthur 21:19, 9 September 2009 (UTC)
Ditto. - Geoff 21:23, 9 September 2009 (UTC)
I'm in favor of Black Sheep Comics. Zahir 09:02, 11 September 2009 (UTC)
