Mobile Independent Funnybooks
A Cartoonist's Pot O' Gold?

We here at the Isotope have been ranting about the future of independent comics and mobile technology for some time now. Because it doesn't take a rocket scientist, dear friends, to see the cross-cultural prospects or the utter simplicity of converting books like Debbie Huey's Bumperboy, Rob Osborne's 1000 Steps to World Domination, and Ross Campbell's Wet Moon to the format. For indy comic creators the promotional tour-de-force of having your work popping up daily on cell phone screens everywhere seems like a true slam-dunk. Not to mention the potential financial boom for indy comic creators that creating downloadable content for the sixty million new cellular phones sold in 2005 alone.

And when one starts to consider the possibilities of comics entertainment on mobile phones in the hands of a creator like the 2005 Isotope Award for Excellence in Mini-Comics winner Daniel Merlin Goodbrey, who is already ahead of the curve with his interactive hypercomics... once you start to consider what is inside that pandora's box of comic entertainment... the thought of indy creators and downloadable cell phone content providing starts to get really, really interesting.

But how does an indy comic creator get their work onto those cell phones? That's really the million-dollar question, isn't it?

Fortunately for you indy comic creators out there that while the other comic news sources are sleeping on the story, your friends at the Isotope read more than just the funnybook sites. The answer to that million dollar question is right here, my amigos...
