Matt Bors leaves Medium; starting new Nib

Editorial cartoonist Matt Bors has been heading up The Nib at Medium has announced that he’s walking away and taking The Nib with him.

Medium gave me a great opportunity to build something huge and a freedom to operate that you don?t see very often in online media, especially when it comes to comics. I think it?s safe to say no other company put that much money behind this type of work in the last two years. It was an incredible place to work, and I learned more than I ever thought I could about online publishing, but ultimately our ambitions diverged and I decided to move on.

The Nib comes with me. I?ve reassembled my editorial team and we?re currently running a Kickstarter, ?Eat More Comics: The Best of The Nib,? to print a 300-page hardcover to be released this September. There are plans to do more, both in print and online, in the near future.

He hints that he’ll be announcing more details on the Post-Medium Nib in the near future. In the meantime, head over to Kickstarter and read about his Eat More Comics: The Best of The Nib project.
