DC Comics casts it's internet


This is interesting...

From the Publisher's Weekly website:

DC Comics has announced plans for Zudacomics.com, a Webcomics imprint and online community that will solicit original Web comics from fans for Web serialization and possible print publication. The majority of the comics published by the site will be selected by the Zudacomics community, which will vote in monthly competitions to pick the best comics submitted to the site. Winners will be published online for a year and published in print.


Might be worth checking out.

When you read commentary about this online, people seem to think that due to the matter of ownership and other legal reasons, it's not going to work. For whatever reason, comic book fans seem to really enjoy complaining about things (check out DCComics.com or Newsarama for evidence), so I hope they aren't going to be ultimately proven correct. I think this would be a pretty cool thing if done right.

Online comic fans enjoy complaining?

Who knew?

I whole-heartedly believe that there are no fans who bad-mouth that which they claim to love more than comic book fans. I have NEVER understood that. Even though I love keeping up with the news on Newsarama and other sites, some days I can't even stomach to scroll down and read the comments. Civility doesn't seem to be a prerequisite for reading these four-color pamphlets of ours , and sometimes I think it's a shame.

I think you're right... online comic book "fans" seem to be the worst I've ever run across. I literally cannot go to some sites because the oozing venom makes my blood boil. Why don't the collect stamps or something if they hate comic books so much? What have you created that allows you to spit all over someone else's creation? What enormous pleasure do you derive from knowing what happens thee months from now, which you're just going to cry and moan about anyway?

The funny thing about the online comic book community... a good hunk of them NEVER actually go into stores and buy comic books. Once a year they'll wander through a store loudly complaining about how comic books were so much better (insert an era), then head out the door. It's very weird. Almost a psychosis.
