    Default Article: How the Comics Industry's Temporary Distribution System Will Work

    I dont see a link on the site to contact the writer or even a comments section so I am posting here

    The article : How the Comics Industry's Temporary Distribution System Will Work

    Its a scam. None of the publishers are backing this

    Basically the owner of the app charges retailers $400 to “install” software (non refundable), then the retailer pays $100 a month to use the service. He got people interested because there is a thread on the ComicsPro retailer board discussing this very same distribution model. Most think its wrong to try and influence the market and that it isnt healthy.

    What isnt mentioned is that it isnt officially supported by any of the publishers nor Diamond Distributors. Sales are final. any customer making a purchase on a pre sale item will not be refunded. So when the customer finds out that " oops we dont have a digital copy" they cant ask for their money back.

    Looking into the person who is pushing this ( big bang comics) it becomes apparent that other retailers have a problem with him. I heard that A petition was started to have him booted from ComicsPro over “questionable” actions.

    Marvels offical response when asked about this incident was - ” … no intentions of distributing digital codes or releases at this time, including (but not limited too) Comixology, Comichub, Diamond Distribution or ComicsPro “
