Assembled, Zipped, Transferred And Downloaded: News From Digital
By Tom Spurgeon
* this is cool: a profile of Le Monde running
the Ruppert/Mulot (with Isabelle Merlet) comic La Technique du perinee
. I think there's a lot of room for mainstream, you've-heard-of-them publications to use comics, particularly those with a strong web presence, even though it seems like we may have moved past that for now in North America.
* the David Lloyd-helmed on-line publication Aces Weekly will soon debut on the comiXology site
. I hope more people see it; I've been horrible about covering it here.
* I'm not sure that I've ever seen this strategy before: Dean Trippe has a re-cut, briefer version of his Something Terrible
, with the option of going and buying a full version. That seems potentially smarter than an excerpt, at least if your comic allows for it.
* love love love reading Gary Tyrrell on crowdfunders and various predictions for how they'll do
* finally, GoComics has announced four new features starting this week: Adult Children
, Stephen Beals; YouCan With Beakman And Jax
, Jok Church; Deep Dark Fears
, Fran Krause; Lard's World Peace Tips
, Keith Tutt and Daniel Saunders.
