Buño is a publisher of graphic novels founded in 2016 by Ulises Farinas and Storme Smith to highlight some of the top creators in the world of comics while always promoting diversity and publishing dynamic projects that might not get an opportunity elsewhere. In the past, the graphic novel or comic book was not seen as serious literature—even though stories told with pictures pre-date the written word. Thankfully, those times have changed, and sequential art is getting its due. Comics are finally finding their way into more and more classrooms and libraries. We work to put more graphic novels in the hands of kids and adults by showcasing the incredible talents of writers and artists from around the world: creators that would often be ignored either because of geography or genre, who also bring with them unique styles and experiences. With each book, we strive to grow the comics culture and create lifelong readers.
