Definitions for "Alternative Brand Studios"
Alternative Brand Studios, or Altbrand for short, is a collective of seven creators (six originally but Bob Roberds joined later). Altbrand was the first (or one of the first) small-scale collectives for webcomics where the creators collectively worked to support each other by pooling their complementary talents.
