Only a few days ago, SLG announced they would be selling digital comics via iVerse, and, in a sign of the continuing difficulty of selling small comics periodicals, they have announced that the final issue of ROYAL HISTORIAN OF OZ by Tommy Kovac and Andy Hirsch will only be available as a pdf download. Although low orders scuttled the final print issue, it will be available in the collected edition, which is due in September.
It’s getting tougher and tougher out there for EVERYONE. However, the digital option is at least available to make sure that the last issue is published.
