Following in the mini-comics subscription model used by Oily Comics, Retrofit has announced its Spring series with comics by Simon Moreton, Andrew White, Ze Jian Shen, Josh Bayer (Raw Power 2), Sophia Foster Diminio, and Roman Muradov, plus a summer release from publisher Box Brown.
For $20 you get seven comics; for $40 you get a full year and a free Box Brown comic. All comics are 40+ pages so it’s a pretty good deal.
While crowdfunding is obviously here to stay, so is this independent, pre-order system.
