India’s Leading Comic & Pop Culture Magazine
Only nerds read comics, real men wear their underwear on the outside. Right? Wrong! Nerds, freaks and geeks. Oh, and let’s not forget the dorks, the jocks and the Klingons. They’re all reading comics. Comic JUMP is India’s hottest, critically acclaimed monthly comic anthology. It is also India’s only comic magazine targeted at the 18-30 urban male demographic. In addition to its authoritative position in comics, comic JUMP’s sphere of influence reaches into entertainment, movies, television, technology, and popular culture. The magazine was launched in August, 2011 and boasts of the best comic content from India and abroad. It aims to become the definitive voice in Indian popular culture.
The parent company – Level 10 Entertainment, is India’s leading creator of comic book content. Founded in April 2010 by Shreyas Srinivas (Former Unilever Manager) and Suhas Sundar (Former Manager, Cognizant USA), the company started publishing comic books for the teen audience. Its flagship monthly publication ‘JUMP’ is India’s first full-fledged comic magazine targeted at the 18-30 male audience and created a new category in the cluttered magazine marketplace in India. The company currently boasts of stalwarts like Mahesh Murthy (Former CEO, Channel V and Founder, Pinstorm) and Shravan Shroff (Founder, Fame Cinemas) on its Board. Apart from traditional print, the company currently distributes its content across mobile phones (Vodafone and Tata Docomo), Apple Store (i-tunes), and the Nokia OVI Store.
The “by comic fans for comic fans” belief enables the company to remain connected with the audience. Unlike counterparts, the magazine’s presence across multiple platforms ensures greatest possible reach. Cult properties or global entertainment franchises, it all begins in the pages of JUMP.
