About Oak Tree Comics
Meet Oakie. Like most magical tree stumps, he's an avid reader in need of more good books. Aren't we all? Here at Oak Tree we're working on making some. We're a new indie publisher of comics and graphic novels for kids, tweens, young adults — for all ages, really. Our favorites always have lots of imagination and heart. As storytellers, we believe it's our responsibility to inspire the world we wish to live in and care for it. At Oak Tree Comics, that world champions diversity, equality, and the trees — like Oakie — that make it so special.
As a business, we strive to be as socially and eco-conscious as possible. If you have ideas for how we can improve our impact, please reach out. We are always looking for more ways to give back.
Did you know...? (Fun Facts)
The oldest oak trees in the world are over 1000 years old. It is more common for oak trees to reach a couple hundred. Oak Trees are believed to represent longevity, strength, and wisdom.
The term 'graphic novel' is very new. Bookstores didn't begin designating 'graphic novels' as a genre until the early 2000s, and some of the most prominent comics artists actually prefer the term 'sequential art' or just plain 'comics.' If we consider comics to be a series of images that tell a story, cave paintings and Egyptian hieroglyphics would count as some of the earliest examples of the art form. That would make comics thousands of years old!
Oak Tree Comics was founded on June 30th, 2020. If you see an oak tree on our birthday, please read it a book. Or play it music. It's a well-known fact that most oak trees enjoy both.
