The Kickstarter funded book Pawn Shop, written by Joey Esposito and illustrated by Sean Von Gorman, will be receiving a special digital release starting today, courtesy of ComiXology’s Submit program. The book, which is separated into four chapters focusing on four different characters, will be released in four weekly “issues” for those wishing to buy the book digitally. The full book, which was published through Esposito’s imprint Soup Dad Comics, is available to purchase now through his Storenvy.
When asked about why they decided to go the weekly digital comic route with the books digital release, Esposito had this to say:
“We wanted to try something different for the digital debut of Pawn Shop, and thanks to the folks at comiXology, we could. The comiXology Submit program is a game changer, and I’m so glad Pawn Shop could be a part of that family.”
Von Gorman had this to add:
“I am so excited that Pawn Shop is coming to comiXology, the premier digital comic distributor. It will be fascinating to see how readers react to the story in weekly chapters. The complete volume has way too many feelings to process in one sitting. You need a break between installments.”
Pawn Shop #1 is available to download now.
