^My confusion is, if Archaia are the publishers what exactly is it that BTD are doing? Are they financing it? I confess I know nothing about the world of comic book publishing so maybe (read quite possibly) I'm being dim.
I'm no expert, either, but it looks like Archaia
has the plant and machinery to publish/produce the physical comics and BTD is lining up the writers/artists and overseeing the development of a line (or lines) of comics reflecting their creative vision (and possibly bearing their brand/stamp/label.) The financial aspects aren't really addressed in the article, but I'd imagine that BTD would have to be kicking some of their own funds in, and that BTD and Archaia both stand to benefit from the arrangement if these comics are successful.
More about Archaia
I don't see anything yet about the partnership on their News Page
, but it was only announced this morning.
Heh. Look under 'Likes and Interests' on Archaia's Facebook page
Edit, some more:
From a link posted on Archaia's FB wall by Before The Door Pictures:
Here's some pics from SDCC from an MTV interview about the comic book his company are... actually I'm not 100% sure what their involvement is.
There's something about that here
, looks like.
Yep, it is true. If you need to know something, M. will have a link for it.
Even if, as I only realized hours later, that the partnership announcement referred to in that link was made at last year's
San Diego Comic-Con.
What happened this
year is that they're presenting the first completed product
of that partnership.
I need to stop trying to do too many things at once.
