Inkblazers Title

These titles are the premier titles by top-notch authors/artists on this site. These are carefully selected by Inkblazers.com and sponsored so that they release once a month.

Artists and authors in this category are recognized for their unwavering dedication to their art and story. They have shown that comics are what they live for, and also that they have the talent and skill necessary to produce brilliant work that deserves recognition.

Inkblazers titles are generally chosen from the feature title pool, although new member submitted titles might also be considered if they meet the criteria and show particular promise and excellence. The number of views, pace of comments, popularity and community involvement with the series in question also plays a strong contributing factor but it is not a limiting one as we know some artist/authors don't like to talk too much online.
