Comixology pull list not updating york university dating
Also, I remembered a story earlier this year about comic publishers’ concerns over e-comics eating into their profits and bringing about the comic apocalypse, so I thought I’d go digging for updates.
And lo, there is a significant development: The debut of the next generation of an i Phone app from Comi Xology.
Here’s a snippet from their news release: “The Comics by comi Xology App is a digital comic store, library and reader for i Phone and i Pod touch that is launching with over 100 titles available from twenty popular comic publishers and many independent comic writers.” The most exciting thing about this app is its ability to view entire pages of a comic at the same time.
Previous apps have split pages into smaller panels, which eliminates the joy of seeing the layout as the artists intended.
(Aside: And don’t give me any about privacy and correlations and any of that bullshit.It will achieve this by connecting with retailers who carry comics from the publishing partners so that users can update their “pull list” within the app.(For the uninitiated, this is a list of comics they have set aside on a weekly basis.) This means that their stack of goodies will be waiting for them when they arrive at the store, and they won’t have had to make a pesky phone call to get to that point.The mark in the video below illustrates why this matters.Of course, if you view your comics on a Kindle, you can already see entire pages, all nice and big. I believe this is what kids nowadays call a “fail.” The other thing this new app should do nicely is boost sales.
It’s run by James Sime — someone who belongs in comics, much moreso than he belongs selling them.
