Assembled, Zipped, Transferred And Downloaded: News From Digital

By Tom Spurgeon

image* the cartoonist Kate Beaton has released a chunk of an autobiographical comics story on-line. I would start with the announcement tweet.

* publicity for this book is the first time I can remember receiving something for a Kindle book release, although I'm sure that has to be wrong. I do know that I've received a couple of comics-related prose book release notices, but not something for a comic.

* in its mention of MoCCA Festival, this post from Gary Tyrrell at Fleen reminds that nearly every major show has a webcomics component now, even the ones we don't think of having a webcomics component.

* the now-gone Oh, Brother! has joined the GoComics on-line strip empire, like a lot of newspaper strips that failed to find an audience during the syndication phase and have since ended. That strip was good-looking.

* finally, I wasn't aware that The Pride hadn't made its debut on comiXology, which means I've come to expect everything there. That's flattering to the distributor, but I'm not sure it's smart.
