Newly formed Digital Comics Coalition holds it first live webcast
February 19, 2015, Los Angeles — The Nerdist Showroom at Meltdown Comics will host “Off The Page: Creating and Marketing Digital Comics,” a roundtable discussion and demonstration of today’s cutting-edge digital comics Friday, February 27th at 3:00 p.m. Award-winning comics author Mark Waid ofThrillbent.com will join other innovators from ComicsFix, Madefire, Scrollon, and Tapastic to announce the world’s first Digital Comics Coalition and to demonstrate the secrets behind some of today’s most forward-thinking digital comics and graphic novels. The presentation will be moderated by Meltdown’s own Gaston Dominguez, livecast on Twitch, and recorded for later viewing online via YouTube and other platforms.
The Digital Comics Coalition is the brainchild of Min Kim (Tapastic). Members include Mark Waid (Thrillbent), Josh Wilkie (Madefire), Felix Kiner (ComicsFix) and Doug Lefler (Scrollon). This diverse group of comics creators, programmers, businessmen and filmmakers joins together regularly to share ideas on the innovations happening today in digital publishing. This is the first time their frank discussions will be open to an outside audience. Each company has its own unique business model, but all share a passion for combining art and technology in new ways that can benefit the comic reading community.
“Traditional print publishers have build their businesses on competition and closed doors,” said Waid. “The Coalition is instead eager to conduct transparent, honest discussions between some of digital’s biggest, most dedicated creators and publishers. We not only plan to work together to promote this new medium, we also encourage others who feel that passion to freely join our conversation and be heard.”
