I was able to get a video interview with Jordan Plosky, the founder of ComicBlitz where I ask him for details about how the service will work. Check out the short (4 mins) video below:
Some of the key details he shared with me were:
- There will be a mechanism to save books for offland reading
- There will be a time delay between same day comic akin to that of trade paperbacks
- Dynamite and Valiant are already signed up for the Beta, but more comics will be added when the product goes live
- There are plans to have original content on the platform down the line
Note: I'm dressed in cosplay as Davial as my daughter Haigen was dressed as Malificient (see below)
As I mentioned, we met a lot of great creators. One Haigen was especially anxious to meet was Babs Tarr, the artist of the new Batgirl comic!
Babs was super nice at the convention. She answered Haigen's questions, signed her trade paperback and suggested the posed picture you see above. This was definitely one of the highlights of the con for Haigen.
I had a great time too and met a few vendors who publish comics which I think will definitely appeal to readers of this site, but that post will have to comic later this week as I'm under a time crunch today. (Look for it around Wednesday or Thursday)
