DIGITAL COMICS: Eco Comics teams with Graphicly
Publisher Mohawk Media has announced that its Eco Comics range ˆ paperless comic books and graphic novels designed with the specific purpose of having a minimal carbon footprint ˆ is now available via digital comic book platform Graphicly, creating what it anticipates will be an evolutionary explosion for the comic book.
Graphicly will carry Eco Comics titles Heroic High, Supplanter, Pirate Queen, and more, via www.mohawkmedia.co.uk/ecocomics
Graphicly’s digital comic platform includes applications to allow the purchasing and reading of digital comic books for PC and Mac desktops, and mobile phone and tablet platforms on Android, iPhone and iPad.
Eco Comics titles are available worldwide to download or view online.
Editor Stuart Buckley says: “Paper production, even via sustainable forestry, can have a disastrous effect on the environment and wildlife. Combining Eco Comics’ outlook with the digital direction of the Graphicly platform is more than a turning point in comic books and graphic novels, it’s an evolutionary explosion.”
“As you flow through the story, the panels jump out. It takes comics to a whole new level. Readers get that extra satisfaction by realising that comics can be environmentally-friendly and, as a direct result, perhaps being even more enjoyable, interactive, and accessible.”
“Readers can also discuss and review each issue, resulting in Eco Comics not only being environmentally-friendly, but fan-friendly.”
“Mohawk Media and Eco Comics will continue to use the latest technologies to help minimise the impact of print comic production on the environment, while simultaneously striving to bring the highest quality entertainment to the reader.”
Eco Comics titles are available now on Graphicly, including a free preview comic. More titles are set to be announced.
