Rok Comics launches

If you're a fan of comics as a creator or reader, then Rok has something for you. If you love comics, you can now access them on your phone over at Rok Comics. And if you're a comic creator, they have devised a flash-based platform whereby you can create your own comic strip and what's more, you can potentially make some money from it. Professional creators will receive 50% of the available revenue on every sale and have full access to sales statistics, page views and more. As a publisher, you can also create free samples of strips to be viewed online (on a blog, website or in an email) or on mobile in order to promote their print editions. You can also access the service from your mobile at

And to help drive this forward, they've got a very experienced guy in charge, John Freeman, ex Marvel UK. He's a veteran of the comics and magazines world having edited Dr Who Magazines, Death's head II, Star Trek Magazine and overseeing the launch of titles including Star Wars and the UK version of the Simpson's comic.

It's not the first mobile comic service, but it does sound interesting nevertheless and if I had more time, I'd go take a look so if anyone else out there does have the time to try, please let me know how you get on with it.

  1. Thanks for the plug. We've just launched a competition for the best new comic with a £5K prize for the winner.


Keep it clean please. Spam will be removed. And thank you for taking the trouble to read and comment. I appreciate it.
