Pocket God Sells More Digitally Than Print

Thanks to Bleeding Cool for this snippet:

We’ve been told of late that digital comics sell much less than print copies. One retailer at the DC summits of late reported that DC sold 650 print copies of a comic for every digital title. Mark Millar has pointed out that his annual digital royalties on all his comics are less than he was paid to write one issue of Superman Adventures years ago.

But Ape Entertainment have had a different experience with their Pocket God comic. Admittedly, that it’s based on an insanely successful downloadable game has given them access to a new audience. But even so, selling one hundred and fifty copies of each digital issue for every print issue you sell seems like it must be some sort of record.

I think this shows where smaller publishers can do better out of digital than the larger ones. Marvel & DC titles are more accessible in print than some of the other publisher may be, so people will be less inclined to buy them digitally when they can go to their local comic shop!
