Moving on from Medium

I recently left my job at Medium, where I worked for a year and a half editing The Nib. We published over 2,000 comics, built up a large readership and, I feel comfortable saying, did some work of real impact.

Medium gave me a great opportunity to build something huge and a freedom to operate that you don’t see very often in online media, especially when it comes to comics. I think it’s safe to say no other company put that much money behind this type of work in the last two years. It was an incredible place to work, and I learned more than I ever thought I could about online publishing, but ultimately our ambitions diverged and I decided to move on.

The Nib comes with me. I’ve reassembled my editorial team and we’re currently running a Kickstarter, “Eat More Comics: The Best of The Nib,” to print a 300-page hardcover to be released this September. There are plans to do more, both in print and online, in the near future.

I wanted to let people know here first. Medium has been the main outlet to see my work since 2013. That’s going to change as I work something out with another publisher, and I don’t think it will be long until I have something to announce.
