Policies & FAQ
Who runs Paradise Systems?
Paradise Systems is run by R. Orion Martin and Jason Li, both of whom work on it part time. Orion is from Iowa but now lives in Brooklyn, New York. He works as a translator and tax preparer when he's not managing Paradise Systems. Jason is based in Hong Kong and Toronto, where he works as a designer, cartoonist and researcher. We also collaborate with a large community of designers, translators and editors in the US and China, many of whom are listed on the about page.
Do you table at book fairs?
We attend a number of North American fairs every year and try to attend at least one per year in China. See our social media for more info about upcoming fairs.
Do you accept submissions?
We currently have a long list of projects lined up, so we are not currently accepting submissions.
Do you only work with artists from China?
Not exclusively. We have close relationships with the comics communities in mainland China, but we have also published a few books by cartoonists from the United States. The majority of Paradise Systems books are translations of work that was previously published in China. More information about the artists can be found on their individual shop pages.
