The past 12 months have been an exciting time in the comic book industry: Marvel/Disney, IDW making huge improvements in sales and stature, and just a few days ago DC Comics restructuring, well, just about everything. Then there’s the rise of Digital Comics. Sure, digital has been around for a few years, but with the release of Apple’s iPad things really took off in 2010.
I admit that I got caught up in it. After all, digital comics are reprints, per sea, and I’m all about the reprints. I made a decision to start a new blog DGTL Comics after I met with David Steinberger, CEO of ComiXology, at C2E2 this past April. I could see the need for a place for people to go to get information, new and reviews of Digital Comics. I did do a few Blog posts and I wanted to get the DGTL Comics Podcast off the ground but it nave came to fruition. It’s been hard to get it off the ground and rather then letting it suffer and be stagnate, I am closing it down as of today. The DGTL Comics Twitter feed I set up however, has been excellent and easy to maintain and will continue to link to digital comics and technology news. I’ll also continue to to small digital news items on the Collected Comics Library Podcast each week.
