Bounding Into Comics has the story:
YouTube personality RazörFist endorsed the newly launched digital comics platform Arktoons as the site added four new series on Monday, May 3rd.
Arktoons is a free-to-view digital comics platform that allows readers to view comics in a top down format similar to Webtoons. It can be found at Arkhaven.com.
The site, while free-to-view, does have a subscription offering with plans ranging from $5 to $50. It does not feature ads and according to the site’s Lead Editor Vox Day it has no plans to ever feature ads.
As for RazörFist’s endorsement, the YouTuber tweeted, “I just clicked on one of the Arkstoons comics, and it opened with a Rand quote about socialism, followed by a complete worldwide death toll of every Communist dictator.”
He added, “I do believe I found the right publisher. Arkhaven.com.”
The comic in question is from Brazilian publisher Super Prumo’s The Hammer of Freedom.
While The Hammer of Freedom might be Arktoons’ most read series, the platform rolled out four new challengers today including Cosmic Warrior, Big Bear’s Big Comic, Gun Ghoul, and Chuck Dixon Presents: War.
It’s very encouraging to see people beginning to sit up and take notice of the fact that Arktoons not only exists, but features content that is manifestly different that what the rest of the comics industry has on offer. And there is now the equivalent of an entire omnibus – about six issues – worth of content on the site already, with new episodes coming literally every day.
On a technical note, the dev team has fixed the “missing panel” problem that affected four of the 26 series.
