Now you can get more digital comics on the Windows Phone. Archie Comics CEO Jon Goldwater spoke to Comics Alliance about the new platform:
ComicsAlliance: Archie has a positively aggressive digital program. You’re first on Windows Phone, and you’re available on the other platforms. It seems like you guys have all of the bases covered. Digital comics are clearly important to Archie. My question is, why the hard push, when most of the industry is still taking baby steps?
Jon Goldwater: We want to make Archie titles available to anyone who wants them — whether it’s through subscriptions, visiting a comic shop or downloading them on your device. Not everyone has a comic store down the street, not everyone wants hard copies of their comics,and so on. We want to cater to as wide a base as possible and we also want to make sure we’re making the best product available to our customers for a reasonable price and in a timely manner. The last thing we want to hear is “I couldn’t find a copy.” We have fans around the world by people of all ages — and they should be able to get copies of our books as soon as possible
