Silver Sprocket is a radical indie comics publisher, art-crew, gallery, and comic shop from San Francisco, CA, representing artists from all over the world.
Everything is creator-owned with artists calling their own shots and getting complete transparency on all decisions and accounting.
We strive to build a better world through direct empowerment and activism, without taking ourselves to seriously or forgetting to have a good time.
The roster of published artists includes Abby Jame, Ben Passmore, Benji Nate, Carolyn Nowak, Cristy C Road, Erin K Wilson, Isabella Rotman, Ivy Atoms, James the Stanton, Jenn Woodall, Liz Prince, Liz Suburbia, Michael Sweater, Mitch Clem, Nicole Goux and Dave Baker, Olivia Walch, Seth Katz, and Tom Neely.

We accept returns only if we made a mistake on your order, or if you’d like to trade something for a different size of the same item. You’ll have to cover the shipping. Email before sending something back since we don’t keep large quantities of anything in stock and would want to save the size you want to make sure we don’t end up selling it before your return gets here.
For questions about mail-order, inventory, returns, and stuff like that, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Try self releasing, its lots of fun!
Our focus is on indie comic books and art. Plenty of other local shops and publishers are focused on prose and poetry. We here for comics.
If you’d like us to publish your work, the ideal situation is that you’ve already successfully DIY/self-released the comic and want to collaborate on expanded distribution and marketing.
Most of the books in our catalog were previously self-published before we re-issued them, with the rest coming from experienced creators we already have a working relationship with or whose work we admire.
If the project isn’t done yet, finish making it first, then send us a link or physical copy.
We’ve gotta see what it is — as close to finished as possible — to think clearly about what we can contribute in terms of distribution, marketing, or whatever else.
We don’t know how to be editors or want to tell you what to do.
We’re happy to check out your work in progress and let ya know what we think, but you should find your own editor if you’d like to work with one.
