Adios Bitpass

A while ago, the failure of selling comics via Bitpass caused many to feel that digital comics might not be viable as a product. I think the demise of Bitpass affirms what I and many others have been thinking all along. Bitpass failed as a payment provider because they got to the PayPal party too late, and their failure should not reflect on the potential market for digital comics. There will be more publishers launching digital comic stores this year, which means more comics for you to read with ComicBookLover. Watch this space!

    Anyone reading this probably already knows, but one comics publisher offering all its titles in .cbr format is Flashback Universe. Since all their comics are free downloads, I often use them as a vehicle to introduce readers to the .cbr format.

    Thanks for the tip. I wasn’t aware all their titles were in .cbr format, but now that I do, I’ll check them out. It’s certainly more evidence that publishers are warming to the idea of digital comics.
