cb_phone_homeToday, startup ComicBlitz, has announced they’re launching an equity crowdfunding campaign through WeFunder.com. This move allows fans to participate as investors in the company’s growth. ComicBlitz is a digital comics subcription service that offers unlimited access to comics from multiple publishers.

Currently, ComicBlitz offers consumers full and unlimited access to more than 4,500 comics and graphic novels representing more than 750 titles from publishers such as IDW, Valiant, Top Cow, Dynamite, Action Lab, Zenescope, Aspen, Abrams ComicArts, DMC Comics and many others.

The WeFunder campaign gives participants the ability to not only invest in something they care about but get direct lines of communication with the top decision makers. WeFunder is the number one equity crowdfunding site in the U.S. for startups in terms of participation and revenues raised.

Next steps for the company, according to ComicBlitz’s CTO and Co-Founder Greg Weiss, include bringing on additional key publishers, adding enhanced features and creating an even more streamlined user experience.  ComicBlitz is also gearing up a self-publishing portal for indie creators and anyone else to easily upload their content for free, tap into the ComicBlitz audience and earn royalties.  It will be an automated system where individual creators can upload their work seamlessly into the ComicBlitz system. The company will have final approval on all content.

Currently available on iOS devices, the company recently launched a beta for Android.
