Rosscott and Alex Heberling are joined with Fes for this edition of the Webcomic Beacon Newscast! We also have newshound Eric/Drowemos to thank for snooping out stories.
We talk a bit about Comixology signing independent comic creators, to utilize their digital comic distribution system. They have a self-authoring sign-up on their website. Also, as reported on The Anime News Network, many Manga publishers are starting to go the digital distribution route. A great amount of research has been done by George Rohac, with his Master’s Thesis on Copyright and the Economy of Webcomics (with additional commentary on Fleen). Also, we discuss Marvel’s “Digital Comic Vault”.
Book Releases: Girls with Slingshots vol 5, Webcomics: What’s Cooking? Kickstarter.
