Webcomic Spy6teen has gone digital with Graphic.Ly:
The original 8-page â€œpitchâ€ for Spy6teen originally appeared back in April of 2009 on Zuda, DCâ€™s webcomic initiative. The story did quite well, garnering over 34,000 views, a number of fans, well received reviews, and a considerable amount of press.
After our time on Zuda, the creative team decided that we werenâ€™t quite done with Callyâ€™s story. Since Cally was born on the web, we decidedÂ that it made perfect sense to keep her there.
We update with a new page every Monday, with a supplementary blog update on Thursday.
Thanks for reading! Please feel free to drop us a comment any time!
Itâ€™s priced at 99 cents, to which you get the Full Issue, in Graphic.Lyâ€™s awesome Panel Flow mode, plus a bevvy of additional contentâ€“ including:
Audio Commentary (Which was a ton of fun to record, btw!)
Bonus Sketches and Pinups
Lineart/Color modeâ€“ where you can toggle DJâ€™s lineart to Lisaâ€™s colors and Brantâ€™s Letters!
The Script and Lineart mode are forthcoming, but if you purchase it now, itâ€™ll be added to the comic when it becomes available.
I actually recently proofâ€™ed the digital edition, and I gotta sayâ€“ itâ€™s downright amazing to see. A great and intuitive reading experience. It really is the Blu-Ray of issue one!
Graphic.ly has a great library of other titles to choose from as wellâ€“ so the download is well worth it!

In addition to this there is also an interview with Graphic.Ly CEO which is well worth a read – and include one of my screen grabs! 😉
TS: How would you say Graphic.Ly differs from other digital comic platforms?
MB: Weâ€™re nicer. (Laughs) Well, I think our focus is more on the social aspect. For us, whatâ€™s important isâ€“ think about walking into a comic book store and seeing thousands of comics floating around and not knowing where to start. Youâ€™d probably get lost and walk out.
Whereas my experience growing up was, you walk into a comic book storeâ€“ and you talk to the owner, and you talk to the other people thereâ€“ maybe there was a couch you sat down on and you had a great conversation. And by the time you left, you bought more comics than youâ€™d expected to- and youâ€™d learned more than youâ€™d imagined. Our focus is on that.
We want to be the couch in the middle of the comic store.
