Maria Scrivan’s Comic Panel Gets Syndicated Licensing Deal in Sweden

Stamford, CT – (October 11, 2014) – Half Full comic fans in Sweden can now get a full dose of Maria Scrivan’s hilarious cartoon panel everyday thanks to a new deal with Content Central which makes the comic available to newspapers and magazines throughout the country.

This is the first international deal for Half Full, a quickly emerging, popular daily comic panel currently syndicated online on GoComics by Universal Uclick, the largest independent press syndicate in the world.

Half Full, created and drawn daily by Maria Scrivan, debuted in September 2013 and has rapidly become a favorite in the U.S. The new deal with Content Central shows the panel’s dynamic ability for crossover appeal and global possibilities.

“I’m very excited to share Half Full internationally. It is wonderful to be working with Content Central to license the daily panel to the Swedish market,” Scrivan said. “It’s exciting to realize Half Full’s global appeal.”

Half Full gives a unique and intelligent insight to the truths and trials of everyday life. From airline travel and social media to couples therapy and house hunting, some topics don’t seem to have a bright side, but when things are Half Full, there is usually something to laugh about.
