ComiXology Announces Second Wave Of Publishers With DRM-Free Titles

DRMFree

Back in July, ComiXology addressed one of the biggest questions people had with its digital comics service: Do customers actually own the issues they buy?

The company unviled a DRM-free backup feature, but only for a handful of publishers, including Image Comics, Dynamite Entertainment, and Top Shelf Productions, among others. This week, ComiXology announced a second wave of publishers that will offer DRM-free downloads -- and no, Marvel and DC still aren't part of the deal.

G.I. Joe Comics: The Amazing World and Life of Larry Hama

silent-interlude

G.I. Joe: Retaliation makes its theatrical debut on June 29th, with plenty of licensed G.I. Joe comics on the way from IDW Publishing to greet it. Though the first movie wasn't that well-reviewed, it was still highly watched, and the excitement over the sequel has grown steadily since the undeniably awesome Superbowl trailer. Before the fervor builds to a level that goes on to devour the earth and stars, let's take a moment to appreciate the work of the man who made the whole G.I. Joe phenomenon possible: artist and writer Larry Hama.

Go to enough "How to Write Comics" panel discussions and you're sure to hear several pieces of advice over and over again: how to build a plot, create complete characters, dramatic rise and blah blah blah everything else you should realistically already know. The most important piece of advice is the one that only comes up at the best panels: go live a life. Go out into the world and learn and experience things, so you'll actually have something to write about. For living proof, you'd be hard-pressed to find a better example in comics than Larry Hama.
