CCON | COMIC CON STUTTGART | Comic-Verlage | Splitter
Splitter has been publishing Franco-Belgian, European and US genre comics and graphic novels since 2006. The initial two monthly novelties have now grown to 15. In the fall of 2010, the publishing house also received a new addition in the form of the newly founded funny and cartoon imprint Toonfish, the publishing home of the Smurfs.
Splitter sees itself as a diverse themed publisher with a big heart for genre: next to the graphic novel is the space opera, next to the comic reportage the horror shocker. Here, Moebius and Peyo, Erich Maria Remarque and Stephen King, James Bond and Marcel Pagnol meet at eye level. In short, the boundaries between E and U are at best there to be torn down.
Over the years, many hardcover and special formats have become firmly established in the program: four-color albums in standardized oversize format; Collector's Editions enriched with lots of bonus material and special prints; bibliophile complete editions of central comic classics in XXL size; the Splitter Doubles summarizing miniseries at a reasonable price; the Splitter Books in handy book format, and the small-format softcover editions MiniSplitt. For collectors' hearts, selected series are also provided with fine slipcases.
Splitter publishes an extensive monthly newsletter, a biannual catalog of around 200 pages for all customers (in print and as a PDF), and is represented on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and in the Comicforum, as well as regularly at the major German comic and book fairs. Splitter is also co-publisher of the online comic magazine Comic.de.
Splitter presents at CCON | COMIC CON STUTTGART 2021 among others the cartoonist Jurek Malottke.
