Some More Of IDW’s iBooks Launch

After IDW’s big announcement about their iBooks lauch, here is some more information about it:

First from MacWorld:

Some of IDW’s releases, like theRocketeer series, were originally released as single-issue comics; for the iBooks release, the issues have been bundled together for a more cohesive story. The company is also releasing a brand-new graphic novel based on the Bin Laden raid, Code Word: Geronimo, which is being published the same day as the print version.

 

These titles are some of the first comics to use the fixed-layout ePub format Apple’s made available in the iBookstore. “The ePub format is very different than what we’re able to put together [in an app],” said Webber. An app can provide more control, offering features like panel-to-panel zoom and auto-play. With the fixed-layout format, however, IDW has been able to work with the iBooks team to release the comics in a way that makes sense as an ebook.

 

Jeff Webber –  IDW’s Director of ePublishing had this to say:

We really feel this is a great format for bringing in new readers — similar to graphic novels and trades in mass-market book retailers. Adds a whole new level to digital retailing.
