Jules Rivera joins Rosscott, Alex Heberling, and Mark Savary for this edition of the Webcomic Beacon Newscast! We also have newshound Eric (Exiern) to thank for snooping out stories, who was also on today’s show! Bigger show than expected. We discuss much about comics sales through the iPad and other mobile devices. Also some “controversy” with Schlock Mercenary, Wizard going bye-bye, and Mark Millar saying he’s not making much money with digital sales.
