IDW have released their latest batch of comics on the iPhone & iPad app. I’m not into True Blood, but I can see the attraction of another strong licence for IDW. IDW seem to be continuing with the GI JOE & Transformers licences in various guises which are good for encouraging people to try IDW as a brand.
It looks as if IDW are still sticking with their promise of fast digital releases after print – I wonder if we can get some stats on how that is working for them?
