About Panel Syndicate

Welcome to Panel Syndicate, host to DRM-free digital comics directly from creators to readers around the world, for whatever the hell they want to pay. Right now, we are proud to present six different series: THE PRIVATE EYE, a forward-looking mystery and BARRIER, an unconventional drama about violence, language and illegal immigration both created by writer Brian K. Vaughan and artist Marcos Martin with colorist Muntsa Vicente; UNIVERSE! a series of self-contained and yet, somehow connected sci-fi tales by writer/artist Albert Monteys; BLACKHAND IRONHEAD, a comedy about family, with super heroes, not about super heroes by writer/artist David López; UMAMI, the little big adventures of Uma and Ami, the kitchen heroes by writer/artist Ken Niimura; and the "pilot" chapter of GLACIER CITY, a police mystery series set in Alaska by Jay Faerber and Michael Montenat.

We are also happy to host THE WALKING DEAD:THE ALIEN, a black-and-white special one-shot issue by Brian and Marcos firmly set in THE WALKING DEAD comic book continuity. Many thanks to Robert Kirkman, whose incredible generosity has made this unique event possible.

You can download each and every one of our oversized issues, for any price you think is fair. 100% of your payments go directly into the greedy mitts of the authors and will help fund the rest of these stories that we're very proud to present, so thanks for reading...
