Bleeding Cool has reported the following:
A number of publishers have moved to day-and-date digital comic books, releasing comics digitally on the same day that they are available in the major markets of the US, Canada and the UK.
Bluewater, famed publishers of lightboxed slimline biography comic books of politicians and pop stars, is taking advantage of the current furore over the Republican Presidential candidates after the Iowa cacus by digitally releasing the comic biographies of Mitt Romney and Michelle Bachmann, with Romneyâ€™s victory in mind and before everyone loses interest in Bachmann after her withdrawal from the race, rathr than publish them at the end of the month.
This wonâ€™t play well with the print comic book stores who usually demand returnability from a publisher for this sort of thing,
The publisher also has Ron Paul and Rick Perry comics to come in February. Rick Santorumâ€™s rise however seems to catch Bluewater on the hop. It shouldnâ€™t be too hard to knock something up quickly though, canâ€™t they just Google his name and see what they find?
I’m not a fan of these, and I’m not sure if this move is going to have much impact!?
