For the computer programming mechanism, see Serialization 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.

Serializer's contributing artists included many well-known award-winning alternative comics artists like James Kochalka, Sam Henderson, Howard Cruse, Chris Onstad and Eric Millikin.

Serializer was the first site to spin off from the subscription webcomics site Modern Tales.

The Sunday Times described it as the "high-art" offshoot of Modern Tales.[1] The Sydney Morning Herald considered the comics on the site to be the avant-garde of webcomics.[2] Publishers Weekly described Serializer's comics as "critical darlings" and "art comics favorites."[3]

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 such a fantastic experiment over the years. Our time has come and gone, but we carry on ... elsewhere!"[4]
