serializer.net was an online artist collective featuring many free and subscription-based alternative webcomics. It was launched in October 2002 by Publisher Joey Manley, Editor Tom Hart, and approximately 20 professional cartoonists. After being offline due to a server crash in April, 2005, Serializer relaunched in October, 2006 under the editorship of Eric Millikin.
The Sunday Times described it as the "high-art" offshoot of Modern Tales. The Sydney Morning Herald considered the comics on the site to be the avant-garde of webcomics. Publishers Weekly described Serializer's comics as "critical darlings" and "art comics favorites."
After a decade of publishing art comics on the web, Serializer ended in 2012, saying "Thank you to all the editors, creators, subscribers, and free readers who made serializer.net such a fantastic experiment over the years. Our time has come and gone, but we carry on ... elsewhere!"
