Warren Ellis has made some comments of his thoughts for 2012 – and has some commentary on digital comics:
This year should be the year where a wide swathe of established comics creators go â€œdigital-firstâ€ with a broad variety of projects. However, that should also have been last year. Which leads me to wonder whether or not thereâ€™s really a taste for it among the creative community. (Aside from me: but Iâ€™m not certain Iâ€™d have the time or access to the artists thatâ€™d really make it work for me.) So Iâ€™m going to go ahead and say this isnâ€™t going to happen this year, and wonâ€™t until itâ€™s really too late â€“ and just hope Iâ€™m completely wrong about this one.
This year, at least three groups will offer indie comics creators a â€œroll-your-ownâ€ digital service allowing them to ready and upload their own comics into storefront apps. It will be absolute chaos, and will create the sort of curational crisis you see when you browse for Kindle books by genre.
Personally – I would like to see better pricing! (I’m looking at you Marvel!)
