Link: Top Shelf On Digital…

Over at Robot 6 @ CBR, they have an interview with Top Shelf Director Of digital Publishing Chris Ross about their move to digital and iVerse Media:

Robot 6: Did you consider doing your own Top Shelf app? If so, why did you decide against it?

Chris: We have and we will. We’ll be creating two apps in 2011—a company branded app and a kid’s club app.

Robot 6: Have you considered other modes of digital such as Kindle, Nook, or direct download?

Chris: Right now, we offer two books, (Veeps and Voice of the Fire) through Amazon Kindle, Nook Store, Apple’s iBooks, and Google Editions. We also offer the first four Owly’s and some FCBD titles on the Kindle. One problem is the Kindle (the most popular ebook platform) isn’t designed to be a great platform for reading comics, so any solution is a shoehorned solution and there are more issues than fixes. It’s really unfortunate because Amazon has been an awesome company to work with, and we’re really looking forward to their solution to comic creation.

Apple is unique in that the implementation of ePub via iBooks can be altered, or at least their alteration/mod of the ePub specification (fixed-content ePub) is sort of the temporary lifesaver for comics. Right now, we plan to roll out Kid’s Club children’s books via iBooks within the next few weeks.

We’ll also be offering our books via Google Editions.

Our basic goal is to have every book we possibly can available through as many channels as possible. There might by technical limitations, or social limitations, or creator limitations, but that’s where we’re headed.
