LONGBOX Aims To Be the Digital Future of Comics, Part 1
As more and more comic books reach a $3.99 price point, an affordable and efficient way to create revenue-generating downloadable comics has become something of a holy grail for the industry. Rantz Hoseley, editor of last year’s Eisner-winning anthology Comic Book Tattoo, has helped create what he hopes be the breakthrough application for online comics. Developed by LongBox, Inc, LongBox is a new platform for downloading comics at a suggested $0.99 price point, with options for trades, subscriptions, and the like.
