Mark Waid’s webcomic portal Thrillbent recently underwent a makeover and now has comics you can embed directly on your site, which is a great way to spread them even further. And a new comic is launching today, Tim Gibson’s Moth City, a moody thriller about a tycoon who gets caught between warring factions after he accepts an island as an offshore manufacturing center. It launches today and will update every Tuesday. Here’s the first episode:

  1. Yeah.

    I’ve read the first two issues on ComiXology.

    It’s brilliant stuff and hope it gets in front of more eyes at Thrillbent.

    I’m really enjoying the expanding collaboration between ComiXology and Thrillbent, in general. Thrillbent is producing great stuff and now getting collected for sale via ComiXology.
