Graphic India- new venture from Liquid Comics has created an online portal to promote comic books in India.Liquid Comics, previously known as Virgin Comics will be using past content as well as fresh content.
This new venture from Liquid Comics looks like an attempt to acquire intellectual property (IP) of digital comics and graphics novels created by young Indian artists and writers. According to a report from Livemint, all the writers of 20 specially commissioned graphic novels will be given contracts but the copyright for these novels will remain with Liquid Comics. We hence assume that the company will probably use the digital rights of these graphic novels to create additional revenue channels like digital movie rights, mobile rights and so on.
In June 2010, the company had begun releasing their content on Sony Playstation PSP platform and prior to that, it had partnered with Vodafone in March 2010 to allow users subscribe and license their full length comics on their mobile phones for one year.
