This comic book company was not created at random. Our founder had been rooted in the culture of American comic books since he was a youngster and being a creative in the industry was always a dream of his. But the unfortunate state of the industry gave him the push that he needed to give it a shot. We’ve seen what works, and we’ve certainly seen what NOT to do. Rippaverse Comics is the product of a comic book guy that still believes the magic of the culture. With that being said, we are guided by a set of principles that remain the staple of this company.
Respect the Customer
We want you invested in this brand and everything that comes from it. Rippaverse Comics is not entitled to your money and we must earn your support. It’s on us as the creators to produce something that you find of value and can remain invested in. It’s impossible to please everybody, but we hope there’s a book or character that you look forward to keeping up with. The success of this company will be largely dictated by our ability to keep the customers interested and satisfied. We are NOT oblivious to this. Respect goes both ways and we will honor our side of deal.
Canon & Continuity
Our aspirations extend far beyond having a couple of characters or series. A vast universe that is ever-expanding is what we hope to accomplish. This is something that has long been intriguing about modern American comic books, but it has become a lost art. The Rippaverse will fill this void. This means that every single book you buy will always matter. If Retcons are to exist, they will only be used in the classic sense of introducing new information. We want every book that you buy to always matter. Those stories HAPPENED. There will be no lazy time travel to change histories or events. There will be no cheap multiverses that have altered versions of the same character. If you own a book, you own a part of the history and it’s our mission to keep it this way.
This concept will remain true regardless of the medium. Should the characters appear in officialized animation or live action, the depictions need to be as accurate to the characters as realistically possible. Your favorite characters will always be recognizable.
A Comprehensive timeline
Because we value canon and continuity, it’s important that you’re able to follow the timeline as these characters grow. This will especially be helpful for those of you that become customers years after our founding. With that being said, we promise to try to keep reboots to a minimum. If this means that a series is on its 100th issue or volume, so be it. But this isn’t a reason to feel overwhelmed. Not only will there be plenty of opportunities to purchase anthologies that combine key stories, there will also be an available OFFICIAL chronological timeline that is constantly updated by our company. Not every story will be told in chronological order, so we’ll always make it as easy as possible to keep up as the universe grows.
