The Walking Day-And-Date

Posted by September 24, 2010 Comment

On Wednesday, The Walking Dead #77 went live on Comixology, downloadable onto PCs, iPads and iPhones on the same day as release in print in the US – and a day before release in print in the UK.

Previously, like a zombie, the digital version shuffled along a few months behind the print version, but now it seems to have caught up, just in time for the TV series to hit.

Whether it will bite the print version in the neck, and drag it down onto the ground to feast is, as yet, unknown.

More and more books from various publishers are taking this approach. How soon before this is the norm, not the exception?
