We never had a chance to comment on PULLBOX, the new comics downloading site started by Devil’s Due’s Josh Blaylock. Basically, you pay a buck to download a comics. Devil’s Due, IDW and Jim Mahfood are making some of their comics available through it. Certainly it’s a ludicrously simple idea and we’re surprised no one thought of it before. We want to give Blaylock a shout out here. He’s really been one of the few comics publishers to push the needle in recent years. He hasn’t always succeeded, but at least he’s trying new things. Anyway, here’s a press release on a gift card initiative, another simple but sound idea.
Hot on the heels of the PULLBOXONLINE.COM announcement. Pull Box announces the availability of gift cards in multiple denominations, perfect for the last minute emergency holiday gift!
In addition, PULLBOXONLINE.COM announces the addition of the “Desperadoes” series from IDW by Jeff Mariotte and John Cassaday as well as the soon to be added creator owned series “Night Club” by Mike Norton and Mike Baron.
As mentioned in the Wall Street Journal, as well as comic book industry online journals such as Newsarama.com and Comicbookresources.com, PULLBOXONLINE is perfect for new readers unaccustomed to perusing comic stores, not to mention the more traditional comic book fan, desiring to sample new comics at a discounted cost, or tired of chasing down missing or out of print issues.
The site currently holds a fantastic roster of titles including the top selling Family Guy graphic novel, Hack/Slash, and Voltron from Devil’s Due Publishing, Zombies: Feast and CVO from IDW Publishing, Jim Mahfood’s GRRL Scouts and Stupid Comics, and many more exciting products.
