ComiXstand is one of the key settings in Dread & Alive: Nine Night. Formed in 2006, ZOOLOOK developed ComiXstand as a web-based comic book distribution platform to promote and distribute his creative work along with other independent comic book artists looking for distribution.

At the time, there was really only one option for comic book distribution, Diamond Comic Distributors. And trying to come up with DCD’s minimum order threshold to be even considered for distribution was a serious nightmare for independent artists and independent publishers.

It’s 2020, and ComiXstand is back! Transformed into a comic book shop in the series and operated by characters Nico & Roxanne (Nico & Michelle of IRIE), ZOOLOOK will preview new and undiscovered independent comix!
