Templesmith Comics Comes to iOS

Great comic book writer/artists, it seems, deserve their very own storefront. So following this rule, IDW Publishing has created another in their series of iVerse-powered storefront comic book apps (including licensed properties such as G.I. Joe, Star Trek and Transformers, along with IDW’s own IDW Comics app), but the twist this time is that the store isn’t built around a property or license. It’s built around a creator.

Ben Templesmith’s work has graced comics including 30 Days of Night, Buffy: The Vampire Slayer and Doctor Who as well as his own creations such as Singularity 7, Wormwood: Gentleman Corpse and Welcome to Hoxford. Now, fans and newcomers who want easy access to Templesmith’s comics work can find it in one repository – the free to download Comics universal app for iPhone and iPad.

The app comes with three free comics up front, plus the ability to download (for $0.99 to $1.99 a piece) over 30 other original comics by Templesmith. More will be added as the writer/artist’s catalogue continues to expand.

IDW and Templesmith are forging new ground with this app, drawing attention to the writer/artist rather than the publisher. How long before more creator-focused apps begin appearing on the App Store? Anyone up for a Jack Kirby app?
