April 3rd. Viborg, Denmark - The Fantasy RPG comic book series Light Apprentice is now available on Graphic.ly for 0.99 cents. Each issue will have 16 color pages (except for the first issue, that has 22) and will come out every first Friday of each month.
Igor Noronha, creator of the property (which spawned a series of animated shorts, soon available for purchase as well), talks about what to expect in the near future. “Although the first story arc has 7 issues, I have outlined the plot as far as issue 24. Now with the comic coming out monthly, I hope I can acomplish that in around two years of constant hardwork”.
When asked about publishing in print, he answers: “I got tired of looking for publishers on my own and realized they’re not indispensable anymore. We’re in the middle of a big turning point in publishing history, wether it’s comics, music, magazines or newspapers. Realizing that, I split my animation studio in two - the second half is now dedicated to publishing comics digitally, and Light Apprentice is just the beginning. But if a good deal for print shows up, there would be no reason not to take it. Meanwhile, I can continue using Ka-Blam and IndyPlanet.”
