The UK Indie Comic and Manga Community IndieReview.co.uk, established in late 2007, has undergone some major refurbishment ready for 2008.
The Community aims to bring the work of UK Indie Comic/Manga talent to the attention of a wider public through a selection of resources and reviews of small press releases, and has introduced a number of new incentives to encourage participation.
UK creators are encouraged to contact IndieReview.co.uk with details of their work, including specific comics or manga created and published, personal websites and individual biographies ready to be included in the site.
Creators and fans alike are welcome to visit the site to gain access to valuable information including rare reviews of Indie works, interviews with top Indie creators as well as a wealth of information presented in articles from a step-by-step guide on how to publish your own work to a commentary on the current UK comic/manga environment.
Like other comics communities such as ComicSpace, members are able to setup a Personal Space with which to share their work with the UK Community, as well as submit their own reviews and articles relating to the UK Indie scene.
