On Demand Comics Printing by Lulu
Submitted by Dedos on September 29, 2004 - 12:05
Lulu.com, the on-demand publishing tool for books, e-books, and other digital content, has expanded its offerings to include a "comic book" size print option.
To meet growing demands, Lulu (www.Lulu.com) is catering to the needs of comic book creators. Lulu's newly expanded comic book capabilities offer artists the option of publishing comic book size (6.75"x 10.375") books in addition to the trade paperback and textbook sizes previously available. All comics are published on high quality paper with the option of vibrant color or black and white. Publishing a comic on Lulu is free. Individual copies can be purchased for under $10 and bulk discounts are available. Authors set their own royalties.
“The decision to expand the dimensions of our comics was driven by customer demand,” says Henry Hutton, who manages Lulu’s online communities of writers, musicians, and artists. “Self-publishing in the comic world is a labor of love. We wanted to give our creators a comic book that feels like a real comic.”
Lulu representatives are also traveling the comic con circuit to inform artists of the latest tools available, as well as learn more about their specific needs. Lulu recently attended DragonCon and will attend this weekend’s Small Press Expo.
