Graphic.Ly have released their latest comics for the week just passed – but first some news and highlights from the team themslves:
Updated Web Reader:
We have spent some time updating the web reader to make it Silky Smooth, or as we like to refer to it internally, Like Butta. Check outÂ Angelus #1 (Free) and let us know what you think. Leave a comment. Tweet it out. You know, what all the cool kids are doing these days.
I’ve always found the web reader pretty slick – I wonder when we are getting round to updating the iPhone app – its still a bit of a bug bear with me that you can’t remove comics to free up memory!
I just spent some time checking outÂ The Shadow Hunters Graphic Novel.
Here is the description: “The year is 3590, and the earth is in a state of TOHUBOHU, or infinite chaos. The effects of World War V have changed the earth as we know it. Nuclear and genetic weaponry turbocharged the evolution process creating new breeds of animals far superior to their ancestors, both physically and intellectually. These New Breeds rule the earth now, and the human race is on the brink of extinction.The human’s elite military unit, The Shadowhunters, is the only hope to surviving this Evolution Revolution.”
Here is my description: Rad.
Graphic.Ly seem to highlight a lot more of the smaller creators, and give them a good medium to show their wares. I’ve heard nothing but good things from people who have dealt with them!
We have been highlighting Kickstarter projects recently, the first project,Â Nathan Screiber’s Power Out: Book Two has been fully funded. And the second one,Â Ursula Murray Husted’s Girls Making Comics is about $2,000 short with 35 days to go. If you didnt see the project the last time, check it out and spread the word!
This week, we want to highlightÂ Joey Esposito’s Footprints: A Monster Murder Mystery. I know Joey personally, and I rarely meet people that are more committed to comics and helping the industry grow. You might know Joey from his day job reviewing comics at IGN.
Again, I want to make sure that you know that we are highlighting projects that we really would love to see made. We dont expect anyone to contribute, but if you can, that would be awesome. I (Micah) do contribute $50 to each project that we highlight — figure I should put my money where my mouth is, right?!?
