Graphic publishing's grown up use of multimedia and social communities

Comic books aren’t just for kids. Nowadays graphic publishing has a much wider fan base driven by mature storylines, dynamic multimedia and active social communities.

A leader in the comic publishing space is Graphic.ly, a cutting-edge entertainment digital content delivery system and community platform that creates an immersive social experience and marketplace around digital comics and associated entertainment properties.

 “Our community is looking for more than just an online digital comic store,” said stated CEO Micah Baldwin. “They know comics are not just colorful stories for children, but beautiful art, with deep story lines that are best experienced socially and interactively that extend beyond the page. Imagine being able to play video or listen to music within the comic — on your iPad! 2011 is the year we bring that into existence.”

The company currently has more than 150 publisher and creator relationships, including Marvel Comics, Archie Comics, Archaia Entertainment, IDW Publishing, Top Cow and BOOM! Studios, and it was the only company to release applications for the desktop with Windows 7 and Adobe Air; mobile with iPhone, iPad, Windows 7 Phone and Android; and the web as a featured partner with the Google Chrome Web Store.
