News: Mark Waid’s Thrillbent unveils new DRM free storefront (including ‘pay-what-you-want’ for collections of Insufferable)
Not content with just creating some of the most exciting digital comics around and giving them away in free bite-size instalments every week, Mark Waid’s Thrillbent Digital Comics have today announced the launch of a new online store! But it’s no ordinary store, as you can now purchase collected editions of your favourite Thrillbent comics DRM-free, direct from the source.
“Digital comics distributors like Comixology and iVerse continue to be great and valuable partners to us,” says Thrillbent co-founder Mark Waid, “and their cloud-based platforms are a great option for many comics fans. But we hear constantly from readers who prefer to own and collect the comics and files they buy, and we’re happy to oblige.”
Moreover, in keeping with Thrillbent‘s commitment to innovation in publishing:
All collections of the site’s flagship title, Insufferable, by the Eisner-Award winning Waid and artist Peter Krause, will be “pay what you will,” allowing readers to set their own price.
Collections of Pax Arena and The Walking Pandas/The Panda Show will include both English and French language editions.
Downloadable PDFs will include exclusive web-linked bonus content designed specifically for each comic, including clickable footnotes, behind-the-scenes glimpses, and more.
Comics aren’t just for adults! In addition to the familiar Thrillbent titles, the storefront will proudly spotlight the kid-friendly, all-ages Aw Yeah Comics! series by Art Balthazar and Franco, creators of the award-winning Tiny Titans and Superman Family Adventures.
Launch titles on the storefront, debuting July 30, include collections of Insufferable, Arcanum, The Damnation of Charlie Wormwood, Pax Arena, The Eighth Seal, Luther, Moth City, and Aw Yeah Comics!, with many more to come.
