Hi. My name is Mark Waid, and I’ve been writing comics for over 25 years… meaning I’m more than ready to break some rules, so let’s go.
THRILLBENT was created because John Rogers and I believe strongly that comics can and will be a thriving mass medium in the digital age if–IF–they’re created for modern media devices and not exclusively for printed pamphlets that are overpriced, uninviting to new readers, and abominably distributed in only a relative handful of storefronts nationwide. John and I both love print comics, but they’re crazy expensive for what you get and good luck finding them.
Each week, some of the most creative artists and writers around will bring new, free digital comics right to your monitor or mobile device, and we’ll show you ways of reading comics that will surprise and delight even the most jaded media junkie. Along the way, we’ll experiment with the form, and we encourage your feedback in the forums. Tell us what you like, what did or didn’t work for you, and what you’d like to see. In the meantime, we at Thrillbent Labs will continue to innovate. If you’re just arriving, join us now for the first installment of INSUFFERABLE: what happens when you’re a crimefighter and your sidekick grows up to be a douchebag?
