Santa Clara, California (PressExposure) March 02, 2011 -- While cartoons and comic books have long been popular around the world, Sketch Maven is introducing the very American hobby of collecting original comic art to cartoon and comic fans globally. For the first time, people from outside the United States now can buy and sell published original comic art (the hand drawn black and white drawings used to create a comic book), original cartoon art, color guides and sketches on SketchMaven.com.
"We've had a lot of interest from people in countries like Australia, China, Japan, Spain, and the United Kingdom," says Mike Todasco, founder of Sketch Maven. "The fans in those countries were looking for a better way to buy and sell comic art online. In response, Sketch Maven is now open to buyers and sellers around the world, making Sketch Maven the standard global platform for collectors of original comic art."
"Collecting comics is an international hobby," Todasco continues. "For example, there are many fans of Spider-Man and Superman around the world, even in non-English speaking countries. The themes in American comics - good vs. evil, heroism, adventure - resonate around the world." By opening the site to international buyers, Sketch Maven is connecting with an untapped global comic fan base to introduce the newer hobby of collecting original comic art, providing an expanded market for sellers. To provide maximum flexibility to current sellers in the United States, Sketch Maven allows them to decide which countries they will sell and ship to, and set their own shipping rates.
