A lot of the major comics publishers have websites that were set-up in the long ago days, and just like a street that slowly gets repaved in sections over a year, they are all getting revamped for the modern mobile and sharing era. Now it’s Image’s turn, as they’ve just put up a streamlined, updated site with David Brothers offering the welcome message:
The site’s gone through a very clean redesign, and with it comes increased performance and ease of use. If problems arise, we’re going to stamp them out quickly. We’re also offering digital collections for sale now, a feature many of you have requested. We want to have a site that you enjoy visiting, so please tell us if you run into issues or have ideas for new features.
On top of all that, I’m taking the wheel. You can find me taking over @ImageComics on Twitter every Wednesday around 10:30 a.m. to talk comics with you. The ImageComics tumblr is going to be full of everything you love about our comics. And imagecomics.com, once a day, five days a week, is going to feature art galleries, long reads, close reads, interviews. Whether you’re commuting or on your lunch break, I want to make sure you have something good to check out.
There are cleaned up pages for creators and a new releases page with buy buttons linking right to Image’s own DRM-free downloads. I’m sure much of this was in place before but it all looks super nice now. And yes digital bundles!
