My big news this week is that Mirabilis - Year of Wonders launched in the App Store for iPad. You can pick up the reader and issue #1 for free (US here, UK here) and subsequent issues are $1.99 each. We've styled them to be complete facsimile comic books, right down to the cover and letters page.
The zooming, page flipping and navigation is a dream - better, for my money, than you'll see in any other iOS comic book reader. And obviously I'm going to rate the content higher, seeing as it's written by me with pencils and inks by Leo Hartas and colors by Nikos Koutsis. Well hey, don't take my word for it. You can check it out for free.
The app quickly rose in the UK App Store book charts this week, reaching #13 (that's seventeen places above The Walking Dead and just two behind the DC Comics reader) and getting flagged by Apple as "New and Noteworthy". We'll be releasing new issues from February next year, so get iPadded now.
Not to forget print entirely, though, there's also a fabulous trade paperback edition on high-quality silk finish paper stock that you can buy for $19.99 on Amazon. That's volume one, which collects the first four issues, and volume two will be available by January. And UK readers might want to hold out for the large format harback editions that are due out from PrintMedia Productions in the spring - but those are only going to be available in Britain and Ireland.

Read the first issue and loved it! Looking forward to the rest.ReplyDelete
If you have an iPad, make sure you get this. After all, the first issue is free.
Glad you liked it, Shane. To anyone who doesn't have an iPad, I will say that the first issue is also available free on BookBuzzr (http://www.freado.com/book/8960/Mirabilis---Year-of-Wonders)... but obviously, to see it at its best you really *must* get an iPad!ReplyDelete
