Pulllist service to compete with Comixology's and to integrate with physical comics better.

  • Updated 4 years ago
Any chance of offering a physical comic pulllist service to compete with Comixology's? Or just more physical comic integration, period.

Comixology's service is basically abandonware- they had good plans for it initially, like adding a wishlist function, and finishing the Android Pulllist app, but it all got drowned by their focus on being a digital comic store. I admire Graphicly's focus on fully supporting and enhancing the comic book experience for all participants and I think this is an area which needs significant work.

Good morning kjdiehl.mac;
First off: thanks for the recommendation.
We have had a few community members write in recently asking for a gifting system as well as a pull-list. I have moved this up in the idea pool.
Our focus right now is on our publisher tools and helping enable publishers get their comics to many different markets that much sooner. Obviously part of the
We're also looking at Newsstand and subscription apps like our current newsstand apps on ipad so that you have a monthly subscription to the books that you want.
Thanks again

Just re-read your email and realized I hadn't answered the physical pull list question. We are associated with iFanboy which has a nice physical comic pull list, but we are not fully integrated as of yet http://ifanboy.com/comics/
Thanks

Thanks for your response, Audrey. I just looked at iFanboy's pulllist and it is a decent start, but I'm really looking for a more deeply integrated service which connects to a user's store, like the Comixology pulllist. And perhaps taking it a step further and providing a data export straight into MOBY. Basically, the Comixology pulllist was a great initial service, but it's severely lacking in refined features, both for the user and retailer, and they're apparently not going to happen, either. I know it might not be in the immediate future, but it seems right up Graphicly's alley to foray into this space. As a concerned reader and hopeful future retailer, I'd welcome it with open arms.
