theMany06It’s not often you get a book that involves cannibals, magic flies, the resurrected body of Karl Marx and a demonic goat – not to mention Tory politicians in gimp outfits – but Charlie Gillespie’s new series The Many which debuts via ComiXology Submit this week covers all those bases. Mixing the weird psychedelia of Grant Morrison with the politics of Alan Moore and the dark humour of Garth Ennis, this first volume in the adventures of Thomas Darker defies description at times, so we contacted the man behind it in order to get his take on his truly unique world view. 

ComiXology_Submit_TMCM_iPadThis week saw ComiXology launch the new ComiXology Submit service for indie comics creators with help from an awesome how to guide from indie stalwart Too Much Coffee Man by Shannon Wheeler.  Submit offers independent creators the chance to upload their comic book and graphic novels for approval at no cost. ComiXology then transforms the work intro their Guided View reading format, market it via their apps on iPad, Amazon Kindle, Android and Windows 8  and creators and ComiXology equally split all profits, with creators maintaining full ownership of their work. As well as launching this great service they also unveiled works from Indie creators that are new to ComiXology thanks to Submit, such as Wheeler’s Too Much Coffee Man,  Jake Parker’s The Antler Boy and Other Stories, Becky Cloonan’s  Wolves & The Mire, Richard Stevens Diesel Sweeties would be available at www.comixology.com/submit
