Today, startup ComicBlitz, the only digital comics subscription service to offer unlimited access to comics from multiple publishers, is launching an equity crowdfunding campaign with WeFunder.com to allow comic fans to participate as investors in the company’s growth.
Currently, ComicBlitz offers consumers full and unlimited access to more than 4,500 comics and graphic novels representing more than 750 titles from publishers such as IDW, Valiant, Top Cow, Dynamite, Action Lab, Zenescope, Aspen, Abrams ComicArts, DMC Comics and many others. The premium monthly subscription price is $7.99.
The WeFunder campaign gives participants the ability to not only invest in something they care about, but get direct lines of communication with the top decision makers. WeFunder is the number one equity crowd funding site in the U.S. for startups in terms of participation and revenues raised.
ComicBlitz co-founder and CEO, Jordan Plosky says, “We chose WeFunder due to its domination in the emerging trend of equity crowdfunding, and its ability to help our fans directly join in the future of our company’s growth.
“Being able to enjoy such a variety of digital comics in one place caters to the way we all consume content these days—via our mobile devices,” Plosky continued. ”For newer comic fans, they can easily discover new artists, writers, titles and more.”
Next steps for the company, according to ComicBlitz’s CTO and Co-Founder Greg Weiss, include bringing on additional key publishers, adding enhanced features and creating an even more streamlined user experience. ComicBlitz is also gearing up a self-publishing portal for indie creators and anyone else to easily upload their content for free, tap into the ComicBlitz audience and earn royalties. It will be an automated system where individual creators can upload their work seamlessly into the ComicBlitz system. The company will have final approval on all content.
Currently available on iOS devices, the company recently launched a beta for Android.
ComicBlitz, headquartered in Los Angeles, is an “all you can eat” subscription service for digital comics. With an expansive catalog of 4,500 comics and graphic novels, representing over 750 series and graphic novels from more than 25 publishers such as IDW, Valiant, Dynamite, and Top Cow, the company is growing rapidly through publisher partnerships and new content.
