Graphicly Presents Self-Publishing Tools For Digital Comics
The self-publishing arena is now open to comic book creators!
Digital comic book distribution company Graphicly has announced a set of self-publishing tools that will allow writers and artists to convert, distribute and promote digital comic books through online storefronts like iBooks, and the Nook and Kindle stores. More from Micah Baldwin, Graphicly founder/CEO:
By opening up our proven digital distribution platform, we now provide these services, while giving authors and publishers full control of their content and revenue streams and a deep understanding of how readers are engaging with their content. We believe our customer’s books should be available in every marketplace imaginable, with the knowledge and support to properly market and promote them.
This is exciting news, as tablets and eReaders are great for reading and distributing comics. I occasionally buy comics to read on my iPad, and I would do it more if they weren't so expensive. (Really Marvel? $3.99 for Ultimate Spider-man?! Ugh.) Maybe a self-publishing component will help make pricing more competitive and sensible? Perchance to dream.
Regardless, more flexibility and access for creators is always a good thing.
