Disney to enter digital comics market
June 16, 2010 | 11:09 am
Speaking of comics, our sister blog Gamertell reports (with several photos) on a “digicomic” reader iPad app Disney is demonstrating at E3. Pricing is given as 99 cents to $1.99, and less for comics contained in bundles. That’s a bit better than Marvel’s $1.99 per issue, anyway. It’s certainly not surprising Disney would develop for the iPad, given Steve Jobs’s stake in both companies.
Gamertell reports that most of the comics on display featured Mickey. But you know, if they can get a significant number of Carl Barks’s Scrooge McDuck comics, the original inspiration for Disney’s DuckTales, in their comic store, I think they might just have something there.
