Graphic Novels and ComiXology
« on: May 30, 2017, 01:24:45 AM »
I'm fairly new here but I Would love to know if a Forum could be created relating to Comics, Graphic Novels and ComiXology 

Does anyone on KBoards read Graphic Novels, or Comics on their Kindle? I've used the ComiXology app and the CloudReader app via iPad.

I have a vested interest as I have been trying to help friends of mine with their Graphic Novel Serial launch. There is sparse useful up to date information about best practices for indies. Certainly nothing like the amazing insights you can get from spending a few minutes on KBoards.

ComiXology is owned by Amazon and Graphic Novels are listed on the normal Amazon site also. So I assume much of the same principles apply to a launch strategy as a Novel. However, I'm hesitant to ask advice, in the writers cafe forum, due to the likelihood that the audience and experience won't translate.

It could be a good opportunity for KBoards to dive into an area that lacks a strong central forum for ideas and community.

It might also fall flat and have no one in it. 

It's just a suggestion. And I'd love to hear anyone's thoughts on it. Especially readers of Graphic Novels. It's possible I haven't come across a vibrant forum that already exists (besides Reddit), got GN's.

We do have some members who read graphic novels, however, I can't say that we've had enough activity to warrant a separate forum.

I recommend, for now, that you start a dedicated support thread in the Writers' Cafe for Graphic Novel authors.  Support threads for specific genres have done well in the Cafe.  The success of that will tell us more about the level of interest.

Thanks Betsy, I think you are right about the lack of activity. This is evidenced by the lack of a chorus of responses joining in this thread.

I will go and try to work out how to make a dedicated support thread.  ::)


And thank you kind moderator.
