Shadowline goes online, finds FINDER

Finderpage
In a case of burying the lede a bit, Shadowline has announced a new online comics site, including PLATINUM GRIT by Trudy Cooper and Danny Murphy, and perhaps most interestingly, a new online home for FINDER (above), Carla Speed McNeil’s ongoing SF saga. The site presents the comics in a Flash-based format. PR below.

The digital comics revolution continues as Image Comics’ Shadowline expands their web comics division with a number of titles from fan favorites and the newest generation of creators!

“While my first love comes in the traditional comics format, there’s no denying the massive amount of new ideas and talent coming from the online world,” said Shadowline Publisher Jim Valentino. “It’s become a way for creators like PLATINUM GRIT’s Trudy Cooper to gain recognition or established names like FINDER’s Carla Speed McNeil to get their work to a wider audience. We’re thrilled to bring these creators together in one collective.”

Shadowline’s continued diversity will be reflected in the web comics, as the line will vary from the science fiction of FINDER to the political intrigue of Len Kody & Jenny Frison’s CHICAGO: 1968 and even the oft-kilter superheroics of ACTION, OHIO by Neil Kleid and Paul Salvi. The lineup also currently includes newer titles like HANNIBAL GOES TO ROME, and the long-running YENNY and BRAT-HALLA. Future contributions include the web comic hit, PLATINUM GRIT by Trudy Cooper and Danny Murphy, and the upcoming LI’L DEPRESSED BOY featuring art by Jim Mahfood, Sam Kieth and more to come!

    That’s excellent news as the Finder main site has been slooooooow for me for a few weeks now.

  2. What a pity, all that shiny coding and there’s no way to access the archives as a whole, no table of contents and one must scroll in order to read the whole page.

    I hope the deal is good for Carla, but otherwise… fail.

    The site also doesn’t work with the MacBook’s trackpad double finger scrolling. So frustrating!

    Is that Bill Schanes sitting stageside?

  5. Does Marvel no longer own the trademark for the Shadowline comics imprint name? Or am I remembering it wrong?

  6. I hope this helps Finder reach a wider audience.
    Love that book, everyone should be reading it.
    Go Carla!

    I wish Carla all the best in her comics career. :)

  8. As I understand it, there’s a new version of the player forthcoming to address some of those concerns.
