How ComiXology Will Support Independent Creators & Publishers

Since Marvel and DC launched iPhone/iPad apps last year, digital comic book sales have been growing. In fact, digital comic book apps have been dominated Apple’s Top Grossing Book Apps list for months.

At eBookNewser, we interviewed  David Steinberger, CEO of ComiXology, a company that designs digital comic books for Marvel Comics among others. He told us how ComiXology is helping indie comic makers join the growing digital comic book market.

He explained: “We are empowering smaller publishers and creators to get digital distribution through our platform with our Guided View Authoring Tools program will help level the playing field by giving independent creators and publishers an equal chance for visibility in the digital marketplace through a standard format and ubiquitous platform. We have a program in the works that will empower partnering comic retailers to sell digital comics through their websites as part of our continued support.
