ARKTOONS: five new titles

Bounding Into Comics has the story:

Arktoons Releases 5 New Titles Including A Classic Golden Age Tale As Part Of Chuck Dixon Presents

A day after Arktoons officially launched on with five new titles, they revealed five more titles today including three surprise titles that had not been previously announced.

Arktoons is a free-to-view website, meaning all episodes are free to read. New episodes of each series are released weekly. You can support the platform through a subscription. There are currently four options ranging from $5 to $50. However, it is not a requirement to subscribe in order to read the comics.

The site launched with Alt-Hero, Midnight’s War, The Hammer of Freedom, Go, Monster Go, and Deus Vult. It has now added five more titles including Alt-Hero Q, Ascendant, A Throne of Bones, Flying Sparks, and Chuck Dixon Presents: Adventure.

Read the whole thing there. Impact Day was a complete success, and now the production team is cheerfully throwing more coal in the engine, as it's apparent that the Chuck Dixon Presents line, which was the brainchild of the team leader, is a successful approach to introducing Golden Age comics to a modern audience that hates the convergence of modern mainstream comics.

There are a few issues we have to address, such as the occasional missing panel, and people are already asking about mobile and television apps - below is a photo of Midnight's War on a reader's 60-inch screen and it looks great - but some of our technical advantages are already paying off by reducing the amount of time required to publish a completed episode. 

Still, in the end, it's all about the content, and now the site is beginning to start to look just a little bit populated. There are even multiple series per genre now, which is cool to see. And tomorrow, there will be still more new series to announce.

600 dollars a years is a small price to pay.

This is absolutely amazing Vox/Team. I've never been into this type of content, but now I totally see how this is upstream of all the chaos in life. Great stories! This is going to crush. And thanks for letting us support it too.

Vox changing his first name to “Impact?”

I like that header with Chuck, and just a quick glance at all of the series and I want them all.

This is amazing. I just read all the offerings. All of them are good! Some are spectacular.

OT question: I backed Arkhaven a few days ago. Does that give me access to social galactic?

Whether a sign of the idiotic times we live in, or me just being an idiot, when I scrolled down and first got a glimpse of the ATOB art my first thought was Why is that legionary holding a cell phone?

Just worked my way all the way down.
Must say the retro Adventure Classics is very cool, and once again I wish there was a way for you to do something rights-wise and revenue model wise to do something w the old Classics Illustrated.

Good work!

Meanwhile, Supergirl has a prom episode to go with Marvel's fashion show.

All of them have been entertaining. Here's hoping some of the youtubers who rail against the mainstream state of comics will shout out arkhaven at least once. Arkhaven, Castalia Library, this blog, and all the projects that are running have really shown how important a focus on building is. Thanks to everyone working on all of the projects for their work.

The lineup is filling out nicely.

Innovative format and really enjoying it. A proper paradigm shift and brought me right back to when comics were good, for me the 90s. Punisher and Venom:Lethal Protector did it for me then and these characters are doing it. The toons hooked me like a fish, these are series I wish already had a back catalogue.

Midnight War has awesome design and Hammer of Freedom, you can taste the coming violent retribution. This is a tide to lift some boats. The teams are on point here, full compliments to all the achievements behind the scenes on this one.

I really like the multi national author aspect. Hammer looks good and enjoyed the start. Also the Alt hero world with the various stories and nations has been fare more interest8ng then the Marvel/DC everyone come be heros in America.

All in all i am enjoying the start

This is awesome. Any plans for a sci-fi story? I'm sure you guys could give Warhammer a run for its money.

Congratulations to everyone who has contributed to the realization of all these imaginative and interesting new worlds and characters. Best wishes for great success.

Knocked it outa the park with A Throne of Bones. Also enjoying The Hammer of Freedom and Ascension.
Great content thus far. Thank you all for your hard work.

There are several science fiction series yet to be announced.

Blogger Revelation Means Hope April 30, 2021 11:55 AM  

That would be cool.

Blogger AKnorsk April 30, 2021 12:31 PM  

Throne of bones comic looks very cool.
