Oni Serializes Archer Coe on ComiXology
Archer Coe and the Thousand Natural Shocks by Jamie S. Rich and Dan Christensen, which I enjoyed reading, will be released as a graphic novel in June. However, in advance of print publication, publisher Oni Press has announced that it will be serialized at ComiXology as 14 digital issues. It’s 99 cents for 17 pages, and future chapters will appear every Tuesday and Thursday.
Since print issues don’t make sense any more for a limited-run independent project like this, I suppose this is yet another sign that digital and book collections can run in very complementary fashion. It’s also a great way to make samples easily available — you don’t have to read it all digitally, although if you do (and if the price stays the same), it’s cheaper by about $6.
