Comics Are Great! 18 – Free Bits for All!
I’m happy to have Paul Storrie return, along with Krishna Sadasivam, for some laughs and bickering! This time we talk about JK Rowling’s Pottermore project and what it means for independent publishing. We then spiral out to discuss how the relationship between author and audience has been changing in the Internet age, and whether that’s a good thing. We’re joined at the end by Eli Neiburger, who offers some more thoughts on how a comics creator has an opportunity to re-think the industry in terms of selling “experiences” over “bits”.
