Link: Comixology @ Newsarama

Over at Newsaram ComiXology CTO John D. Roberts is interviewed with his thoughts on the comics medium, and the future of digital comics!

“On average it takes about two hours to format [a standard size comic book],” Roberts explained. “I’m told older books are easier generally due to their panel structure, but because they have more panels it takes a little longer in that regard. But those classic nine-panel grids from Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko are easy to process; it’s funny, but those panels fit almost perfectly on the iPhone like the device’s creators made it for viewing 9-panel comics.

“Some of the more complicated layouts can get crazy,” Roberts continued. “Things like having readers read things clock-wise as opposed to left-to-right or something can make things complicated for us. But we’re getting faster all of the time, streamlining the process as much as possible. A year ago when we first launched the app, we were doing thirty or forty books a week – now we’re doing around 100 a week. We’re just releasing that much more through the various branded apps.
