We partner with talented creators who bring a unique and fresh perspective to storytelling for our diverse, contemporary audience. Studio Tapas Originals are more than just comics–they’re authentic, accessible, and meaningful elevated genre stories that reflect the passions of our reader and creator community. Our mission is to lift up the next generation of storytellers and bring their stories into the spotlight.
”At Tapas, we set out to share stories that you can’t find anywhere else by creating a global, open publishing platform for independent storytellers. We debuted the platform in 2012 with seven creators, and over the years, we’ve built a strong relationship with the creator community. We are proud to say that now over 57,000 creators call Tapas their home.
As a platform, we not only cultivate meaningful connections with our community, but also incubate and elevate diverse stories through utilizing technology and data in order to empower the next generation of storytellers. At Tapas, our goal is to serve these creators by forming powerful partnerships in the entertainment community to propel these stories across the global content landscape.Gabrielle LuuEditor in Chief
