Johnny Saturn Now Available on Drive Through Comics!

Story Studios is proud to announce that it has penned a deal with Drive Through Comics, the iTunes of comics, a new online distributor that specializes in selling e-books.

Johnny Saturn will be available in watermarked PDF, thus making it easy to zoom in on the action.

Each of the first three issues of Johnny Saturn appear exactly as they do in print, and each issue sells for $1.99, as opposed to the regular cover price of $3.50 each.

Johnny Saturn is the tale of a hard-bitten mystery man who must overcome incredible odds to foil the plot of diabolical terrorist, Dr. Horatio Synn. The story avoids traditional formulas and stereotypes, instead choosing to veer through odd narrative terrain. Even death itself doesn’t stop Johnny Saturn, and the story careens through heaven, hell, urban blight, and deep into the earth. With a varied cast of characters that includes meta-heroes, angels, demons, cyborgs, mole people, and mythological beings, Johnny Saturn is the best post-modern deconstructionist paranormal superhero crime noir with a mythological flair comic there is.

Story Studios LLC., created to showcase the creative works of Scott Story and Benita Story, has been producing fine print and web comics since 2004.

I'm pretty pleased to be associated with them, I'll grant you that. While they make the claim of 'itunes of comics,' I think it should be noted that they do not use the itunes service itself for distribution, such as Clickwheel does. One thing I did find pleasing was that with PDF files, you can zoom in and the art still looks pretty darn good, so you can read the pages at screen size, or you can read it at a larger size and appreciate the art more.Â

Once again, we find that Joey is the wind beneath my wings.

This is what I meant.

Also, in seriousness, I'm really interested in how drive thu does with this stuff. If they have Johnny Saturn, they must be doing something right!

Awesome! That looks like a cool system. I wish they had the books in that .cbr format.Â

I was surprised they're using the term "itunes of comics" on their site, I think sooner or later Apple will come calling on that.
