Digital Comics Round-Up: Clowns, Spider-Man & The Thrill Electric
I’ve been away from GS for a while…
But less about the past, now I’m back and am bringing you a weekly round-up of digital comics news as far as I see it!
First though, the name – Digital Round-Up doesn’t really inspire much, so if anyone has any ideas what I can call this weekly piece, please leave your suggestions below.
Who am I?
As it’s been a while I’d better do a short introduction. My name is Michael Nimmo and I am a fan of digital comics. There! I said it. I was an early adopter onto digital comics (before they were cool?) and run my digital comics blog – 3Millionyears in which I try to give as much information as a man can give on digital comics!
So below you will find some links and news about digital comics, along with latest releases and reviews. If I’ve missed something, or you want to draw my attention to your digital works, please email me
