  1. “And a new comic is launching today, Tim Gibson’s Moth City”

    For what it’s worth, it has been on Comixology for a month.


  2. Michael Kindt says:


    I’ve read the first two issues on ComiXology.

    It’s brilliant stuff and hope it gets in front of more eyes at Thrillbent.

    I’m really enjoying the expanding collaboration between ComiXology and Thrillbent, in general. Thrillbent is producing great stuff and now getting collected for sale via ComiXology.

  3. Leo Johnson says:

    Beyond even the Comixology issues and whatnot, Tim has been posting Moth City on his own since last October on http://www.mothcity.com. Great seeing him getting more exposure though.


  1. […] (simply known as ‘The Beat’ to it’s fans) pointed out the fact that you can even embed Moth City in your own sites/blogs/tumblrs using Thrillbents […]
