10 #1s. All released on the same day. All connected in one universe. All free on Comixology.
No, this isn’t a plan from Marvel or DC. This is the launch of the brand-new comics line from Double Take Comics.
Led by former Marvel publisher Bill Jemas, Double Take has launched 10 comics in a shared comics universe based on the 1968 film Night of the Living Dead.
Keith and Chris are joined by Double Take Comics Sales & Marketing Coordinator Gabe Yocum to talk about the innovative launch of the line, how it’s packaged in print and digital, and what they have planned for the future.
Gabe talks about Double Take’s strategy and how their parent company allows them the ability to produce quality comics for a much lower price than competitors.
Along the way, Gabe talks about the line of super-hero books that are coming in 2016 and how those will fit into the same shared universe.
The usual distractions and digressions pop up. Gabe has Michael Bay’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on in the background as the show starts and that gets a conversation on nostalgia and explosions rolling.
You can get issue #1 and #2 Super Packs through their Kickstarter until October 31.
