About Bounding Into Comics

How We Got Started

BoundingIntoComics.com has been providing comic book exclusives and industry insights since John Trent launched the site in 2014. What started as a destination for comic book news and reviews has grown into a comprehensive hub for nerd culture. Bounding’s team of comic/anime/gaming/movie/television aficionados leverage their network of press contacts, industry insiders, and content creators to deliver exclusive news, commentary, and insights. 

Bounding Into Comics focused primarily on all things comic book when it launched in 2014. After being acquired by Aurora Media, Inc. in 2017, the site experienced an explosion in audience and revenue which allowed Bounding to grow its writer stable and expand into new verticals like Celebrity, Anime, and Video Games. In 2023, the site’s reputation as an authority in the comics industry earned it a spot in The Publisher Desk portfolio.

All content on Bounding Into Comics reflects the subject matter expertise and opinions of the writer. The team does not rush to publish information without regard to accuracy. Errors are quickly and carefully corrected as they come to our attention. If you spot an error, please send it to: admin@boundingintocomics.com
