Scott Snyder has tested the waters of creator-owned comics, crowdfunding, and now has signed a deal with comiXology to co-create eight original titles for the digital platform. Through Snyder’s Best Jackett Press, the comics will first debut digitally on comiXology and Kindle and then later be printed through Dark Horse.
We Have Demons with Greg Capullo is one of the series announced. Others involved include Rafael Albuquerque, Francesco Francavilla, Jamal Igle, Jock, Tula Lotay, Francis Manapul, and Dan Panosian. The comics will begin to be released in October.
The decision by Snyder was expedited due to shifts in the industry due to COVID as well as publishers cutting rates.
While Amazon will get a brief first look, the company has no rights to the comics allowing Snyder and the artists to control the projects when it comes to film, television, and merchandise.
