After a fairly spectacular round of manga announcements at Anime Expo three weeks ago, this year's San Diego Comic-Con was a quiet one for manga publishers. In fact, Yen Press cancelled their panel at the last minute, although they did have a busy booth on the main exhibit floor. Here's a look at what went on.

Each week, Matt Wilson, co-host of the War Rocket Ajax podcast and author of The Supervillain Handbook, examines at a major comic news item and picks a few winners and one loser among the week's comic book releases.

Last week, ComiXology made an announcement that it had rejected from and was going to be taking down some of the comics already available in its iOS app because they violated Apple's App Store guidelines for content. You can see a list of the books that got removed here.

About a month ago, Marvel halted its "Hey we're giving away 700 first issues for free on ComiXology" initiative because the deluge of readers hitting ComiXology during the offer's (incredibly narrow) window of two days caused their servers to explode. Now Marvel is doing it again, but this time, it should be orderly. We hope.

UPDATE: Marvel issued a statement about the technical hiccup as well. See that below.

Following the SXSW announcement that Marvel would be giving away 700 #1 issues, ComiXology's servers blew the heck up, resulting in many fans angrily waiting for downloads that never downloaded.

ComiXology CEO David Steinberger issued the following statement, assuring readers that you will get your comics...eventually.

There has been much ado about Marvel's "Unlimited" digital comics program at SXSW over the weekend. From the official press release:

"Marvel Unlimited provides the deepest online reading experience utilizing Marvel’s patented digital reading technology while providing seamless access via iPhone, iPad or iPod touch or web-browser. Now you can truly enjoy your favorite comics anytime, anywhere!"

But where does that leave a digital comics site like comiXology? Doesn't this huge digital initiative by Marvel eat into comiXology's revenue -- not to mention the latter's reputation as the "one-stop-shop" for digital comics? Read More...

Why waste your time with the best superheroes in the world when you can wallow in the very worst? I kid, of course -- the duo of "Quantum and Woody" puts such teams as "Uncanny Wolverine Bat-Avengers" to shame with their tasteful wit, inappropriate malapropisms and general goat fetishisation. And, like any addictive substance, the first one's FREE!

Only on comiXology -- with the tacit approval of Valiant Comics, of course -- can you read these classic tales again for the first time. The dream-team of Christopher Priest and M.D. "Doc" Bright bring you the misadventures of these two guys: Read More...

ComiXology’s announcement of its upcoming “Submit” program turned an otherwise hypothetical New York Comic Con panel into a strategic instruction session for indie comics artists and writers eager to bring their comics to the digital distribution platform.

ComiXology co-founder John D. Roberts and vice president of marketing and business development Chip Mosher described the program as a way for the company to come back “full circle” to its work with independent creators. The new Submit program will be entirely free to creators, including the conversion to the “Guided View” format that has made ComiXology into the most popular way to read digital comics. Read More...

Continuing our Digital Saturday here at Baltimore Comic-Con, we headed over to the “Making Comics The comiXology Way” panel, which of course, was about waffles. I don’t even know what that means, I’m exhausted and it’s only my second panel, so let’s get to the recap!

On the panel were founder of comiXology John D. Roberts, artist Reilly Brown, and writer Alex De Campi. Roberts opened things up doing a short presentation on the App, with a focus on their Guided View technology. He noted that as they were working on Guided View, they noticed some panels seemed to have seamless transitions. This led to creators, like De Campi and Brown, saying they wanted to make stories that took advantage of these techniques. Read More...
