The Wild Hunt is Now on ComiXology!
If you recall, we ran a Kickstarter campaign earlier this year to get this book printed. That didn't work out so, we finished up the book anyway and submitted it to ComiXology. They have graciously opened their doors for us and you can now download it and read it on their platform.
Why would you do that, you ask? Why buy a comic that you can very handily just read for free here on the website? Well, I can't answer that question for you. That's your own demon to wrestle with. But there are a few reasons you might want to snag it, in my opinion.
Let's look at the list:
1. It's much higher resolution that what we have here.
Web pages don't work well with high resolution imagery. So you get low-res pages here. The comixology version is high resolution and pretty.
2. Guided View
Some people hate guided view. I am amongst their number. But if you like guided view... well, they have it.
3. Redrawn Chapter 1 Art
Dima redrew Chapter 1. We did this to provide a more consistent experience while reading the story. Blakely's Chapter 1 will remain here on the web for you to read. And I may someday print it out as a single issue. But if you want to see the comic all drawn by one hand, the ComiXology version is the way to go.
4. It helps pay for the print book
So the Kickstarter will be reborn one day and if we make some money on the digital edition, then that money can go toward printing costs. Then we'll be able to set our money targets lower and have a much higher likelihood of success.
5. You can take it with you
When the inevitable collapse of society hits and you're sitting in your basement powering all your devices on a diesel generator and the internet is a thing of distant memory; you can sit in your bunker and read this comic. Even though the internet is gone and the website is only so many bits on a hard drive in some long forgotten data center. You can still read it until you run out of fuel for your generator and all your devices go dead.
And, at that point, what value will all your technological toys have for you anyway? Hopefully, we'll have a printed version by that point and it will be on durable, mold-resistant paper.
