First Look Media Buys Comics Site ‘The Nib’

Smart move.

First Look Media, the media company founded by eBay co-founder Pierre Omidyar, has acquired comics site The Nib.

The Nib is edited by Pulitzer Prize finalist and Herblock Prize for Excellence in Cartooning winner Matt Bors.

“The Nib tackles politics and culture with a signature style that is smart, funny, and fearless,” said First Look Media’s executive vp of programming and content Adam Pincus, in a statement. “Matt created something with a real point of view. It’s a great fit with our mission to be a home for strong, distinctive independent voices, and we’re excited to work with Matt to explore animation, and other new directions for The Nib.”
