Comic reading app Comic Blitz has partnered with WeFunder to launch the comic industry's first Equity Crowdfunding campaign.
Basically, you don't just fund something, you invest in it as well and become a partial owner.
Comic Blitz is already a Netflix-style all-you-can-eat digital comics reader alongside Marvel Unlimited and ComiXology Unlimited, with comic books available from IDW, Valiant, Top Cow, Dynamite, Action Lab, Zenescope, Aspen, Abrams ComicArts and more DMC Comics.
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.
That's if they have the investment… they've got their first grand (just about) already.
