There’s a big ol’ preview and a buy link over on the Monkeybrain Comics site so go and spend some money and support chick-friendly, funny comics!
Wander: Olive Hopkins and the Ninth Kingdom #1 is now on sale through Comixology!. Read the preview above and then give us two dollars of your money! That’s less than half the cost of a Subway™ $5 Foot Long™ Sandwich®!
…and we need you to help us out! If you like what you’ve seen so far from the Wander site and haven’t taken the opportunity to show other people the promotional post explaining the comic’s concept, Grace, Josh and myself would really appreciate it if you did. The more people that see it, the more likely they are to go and buy the comic when it hits Comixology at midnight tonight. (Or, you know, at a reasonable hour tomorrow.)
The first issue of an unknown comics property is a bit of a gamble for creators and readers alike. As creators, we’re hoping that you’ll enjoy the work enough to continue supporting it. As readers, you’re hoping that you enjoy the work enough to justify your dollars (or pounds or yen or what have you.) Since we’re all on the same page, we’d like to ask for your help in making Wander into something that, if not exactly a blockbuster, can support itself in the marketplace.
We’ll have a post up tomorrow with links to Wander #1 in the Comixology shop, rest assured, but every bit of signal boost we get early on will help us. We very much appreciate your support and hope you enjoy the series as much as we’re enjoying making it.
The comics internet exploded yesterday with news about Chris Roberson and Allison Baker’s new Monkeybrain Comics publishing concern. I am fortunate enough to be part of their initial wave of titles with my new series Wander: Olive Hopkins And The Ninth Kingdom, debuting on July 17th through Comixology. Here is a link to a promotional strip for the series.
(For the record: Yes, I know how lucky I am to snag someone as talented as Grace Allison to do the art, and Josh’s letters (no, he didn’t do the promo strip, that was all me) really make a complete package.)
