retrowood_hiorlo_1_cover_200pxAsylum Press has released Mike Vosburg’s crime comic, Retrowood: H.I. or L.O. #1 (of 2) for free on all digital platforms.

The environment is faux Depression era Hollywood, complete with snarling gangsters in snappy suits, the untouchable wealthy , corruptible starlets in sleek revealing gowns, and elegantly designed automobiles set against the poverty and despair of the average joe. And in the middle of all this a world of celluloid dreams is being created. Private detective J. Parker Wrighte, is on an upwardly mobile career path from his lowly dust bowl beginnings, but finding that every advancement comes with cost and compromise. Working for the Kinchay Agency, Parker is investigating a case for Louis Orwell, one of the most powerful men in Retrowood; but at every turn he is continually dragged back into contact with his past, beginning with the murder of his best friend from childhood, Henry Irving. Drunken priests, sadistic nuns, nymphomaniacal wives, with basketball and gambling thrown in…. How can you go wrong with that?

Retrowood: H.I. or L.O. #1(of 2) is available for free on Comixology, ComicsPlus, Graphicly, My Digital Comics, DriveThruComics, AVE-Comics and can be found on on iPad, iPhone, Android devices, Mac, and PC.

Get reMIND Volume 1 for FREE on comiXology

remind-volume-1One of the great finds from my visit to San Diego Comic Con 2011 was Jason Brubaker‘s reMIND. Not only did the story sound interesting, but the art was beautiful

reMIND is a mystical, sci-fi about faith, love and brain transplantation.

Sonja, the lighthouse keeper at a seaside oil drilling town, loses her cat, Victuals. Everyone blames the Lizard Man, the local boogeyman, which Sonja knows is a myth created by her late father to generate interest in the town. But when Victuals unexpectedly returns and has the brain of a strange intelligent creature; it seems someone is doing experimental transplants.

With the brain of a lizard and the body of a cat, Victuals must now fight to recover his original lizard body and confront what he thought was the all-powerful god.

When Brubaker announced his Kickstarter project for the second volume, I immediately plucked down my money and recommended it on this site. I recommended the web comic turned graphic novel when it was $25, well, how about it for free?

You can download reMIND Volume 1 for FREE on comiXology right now. This offer lasts until January 27th of 2013 so grab it now if you want it for nothing!

The graphic novel is amazing, a fantastical tale that’s entertaining for both parents and kids and the art is amazing. Finding series and talent like this, is one of the big reasons I enjoy going to conventions. Do yourself a favor and get this for free today!

In Men in Black 3, Agents J (Will Smith) and K (Tommy Lee Jones) are back… in time. J has seen some inexplicable things in his 15 years with the Men in Black, but nothing, not even aliens, perplexes him as much as his wry, reticent partner. But when K’s life and the fate of the planet are put at stake, Agent J will have to travel back in time to put things right. J discovers that there are secrets to the universe that K never told him — secrets that will reveal themselves as he teams up with the young Agent K (Josh Brolin) to save his partner, the agency, and the future of humankind.

ComiXology Counts Down to 100 Million

ComiXology revealed today that they are about to exceed 100 million comic and graphic novel downloads. To mark this major milestone, comiXology will be giving away a new free comic every day on comixology.com until the 100 millionth download.

“This has been a banner year for comiXology,” said co-founder and CEO David Steinberger. “We have dedicated ourselves to expanding the comic book audience by delivering the best consumer experience, and it’s fantastic to see that unfold. We started the year cresting 50 million downloads, two and a half years after launch; we added the next 50 million more than 3 times as fast. We are spreading the love of comics.”

“It’s dizzying to look back at the last 12 months and see that we’ve been the top grossing iPad app in the entire iTunes App Store almost 90% of all Wednesdays,” said co-founder John D. Roberts. “ComiXology’s mission is to bring comics to everyone everywhere and – looking at crossing this 100 million download milestone – it certainly feels like we are making good on that promise.”

ComiXology launched their digital comics platform in July of 2009 as an app on the iPhone and iPod Touch. The digital comics platform was then extended onto the iPad with the iPad’s debut in April of 2010. As 2010 continued, fans saw the extension of the platform to the Web in July 2010 and onto Android at the tail end of that year. In 2011, digital comic fans saw the platform add Amazon’s Kindle Fire, with the comiXology app available pre-installed when the Kindle Fire launched that November. The end of 2011 also saw comiXology powering three of the top 20 grossing iPad apps — with Comics by comiXology topping number 11 for the entire year. In July of 2012, comiXology once again extended the revolutionary digital comics platform with the release of a reader app for Windows 8, which was universally hailed at its debut.

With the quickly approaching milestone of 100 million comic and graphic downloads, and with a selection of over 28,000 comics and graphic novels to choose from – with over 900 of those available for free — comiXology securely stands as the market leader in the digital comics and graphic novel space and the go-to platform for newly interested and lapsed comic and graphic novel fans.
