Another interesting launch this past week! Michael Jasper and artist Niki Smith relaunched their webcomic In Maps & Legends on September 1st. They won DC's November 2009 Zuda contest, but their run there was cut short by the abrupt shutdown of Zuda by DC.
So the creators have cooked up a multi-outlet publication plan with the first issue for sale at 99 cents at a variety of online distributors:
- Comixology (iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad, Web Reader)
- Graphic.ly (iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad, Web Reader)
- Robot Comics (Droid Phone – coming 9/6/10!)
- Amazon’s US Kindle Store (Kindle format)
- Amazon’s UK Kindle Store (Kindle format)
- DriveThruComics (PDF download)
- Wowio (PDF download)
- Scribd (PDF download)
The comic is about a young woman caught up in a plot between our world and another:
Kaitlin Grayson considers herself just an artist until she gets recruited by a strange man named Bartamus, who shows up at her place in the middle of the night and demands she use her skills to save his dying world. Soon Kait gets caught between two worlds, and if Bartamus’ world falls, Earth is next — along with untold other worlds.
