Eric Stephenson thanked the staff of Image. He said in the last twelve years the Image Comics staff has doubled from eight people to sixteen. He invites staff member Ron Richards to the stage. He announces that he is reformatting the website. He says the site, which is live, will archive every Image book every produced. There will also be a buy button which will search for where to buy it online. They will offer PDF, CBZ, CBR, ePub for the books on their website for purchase. Everything will be DRM free.

Image Comics has a new website. That celebrates the old and the new from the publisher. And also, from today, collects the digital comic from Warren Ellis and Jason Howard, Scatterland, as a 99 cent digital comic.

More importantly this, and other digital comics such as Jupiter’s Legacy, can be downloaded without the DRM that the likes of ComiXology or iBooks employ.

Which, in one step, has lifted Image Comics from the crowd…

UPDATE: Just bought Scatterlands. It says I can’t read it because it’s not July 2nd yet…

DOUBLE UPDATE: It’s been fixed!
