Thrillbent Offers Direct DRM-Free PDF Downloads

Mark Waid, of Thrillbent has announced the opening of the Thrillbent store, allowing people to pay to download PDF versions of the Thrillbent comics they have been offering for free in CBZ format.

And, in a model that seems to echo Bryan K Vaughan and Marcos Martin‘s Private Eye digital comic, they are DRM-free and, for Insufferable at least, readers can pay what they wish.

This model may be coming more popular, stories about the patent on ComiXology’s Guided View being threatened and claimed by Marvel/Disney could potentially make such systems financially erroneous to use, and with increased resolution displays, may even become unnecessary. Following Image Comics, this kind of approach may come more and more common. Waid writes;

Weekly CBZ files are still free to download for now, but buying the PDFs gives you exclusive bonus content designed specifically for each comic, including new covers, clickable hotlinks, behind-the-scenes essays and art, and more. Moreover, if you like what we do here at Thrillbent, these purchases are a relatively inexpensive way to show your support if you’re so inclined. I’ve said it a thousand times–we’re in this to make comics, not to maximize personal profits–but receiving money from fans and readers who feel like we’re giving them something of value in return, that’s what allows us to keep going.

Waid also announced that Aw Yeah Comics! would spearhead the launch of Thrillbent For Kids.
