Chris Lie reveals the scale of the studio’s successful move into publishing comics
In July 2013 Caravan Studio expanded into publishing, founding a comic company called re:ON Comics. “Re:ON Comics caters for a pool of aspiring talented comic artists and illustrators under a professionally managed label. Its flagship product is sixweekly comic compilation magazine,” says Chris Lie of the venture. “In less than two years, re:ON Comics has become one of the largest comic compilation publishers in Indonesia, in terms of print run, distribution channels and best sellers.” Chris continues: “There are more than 50 comic artists from all over Indonesia collaborating with re:ON Comics. We’re also in the final stages of our pilot animations and games, based on our managed IP.”
