Here are a few independent review extracts

"It’s rare that a comic completely catches me off guard. With this series though, I was caught off guard completely when I read it, so much so that I leaned back in my chair and was like, “Damn… you got me.” around half way through the second issue when the bomb is dropped on you... I was blown away." Comic $astards, US Reviewer gave it 5 out of 5

"Daley’s unique, dry wit is the highlight of his writing. He may write great stories, but when it comes to the closing pages, there’s no one else to compare. CD Comics output has been nothing but a treat to read, with Meadowhell being no exception. Another cult gem." Horror Cult Films UK Reviewer

"So much work goes into giving a realistic bend to his comics that it really sets them apart from others which just do not have the same level of crazy detail... I was really drawn into this world, desperate to find out just what was going on." Rotting Zombie UK Reviewer gave it 8 out of 10

Don't worry, if you're not living or visting Sheffield, CDComics are also available to download from the following websites online:

Comic Book Download Websites

So what are the options for the self-publisher when in comes to getting your comics on sites that will offer them for download to smartphones, tablets, etc... now that Comixology has been bought by Amazon?

And how is it working out for this small indie publisher?

Selling comics with a cover price was a decision I made early on, having decided to go for that, rather than having adverts on my website and earning through hits and secondary income, just a personal choice...

Going through Smashwords has given me access to Apple, Sony, Nook, Kobo, Diesel, Page Foundry, Baker Taylor Blio, Library Direct, Baker Taylor Axis, and more recently Flipkart, Oyster and Scripd.

I will have to hold comment on the last three, although I am hopeful with Scripd...

Sony and Diesel, that both sold well for me have now both gone belly up. While the other smaller sites like Page Foundry (down-loaders just want free titles) and Baker Taylor rarely get sales for me, so I've reduced my library output to a couple of taster comics that I offer free. 

The big three are definitely, Apple, Kobo and Nook and I've hit triple figure sales across those with several of my titles and they have expanded my audience from my local base.

Other sites not linked to Smashword like Drive Thru Comics have been slower, but I've sold a reasonably through them. 

About a month ago I uploaded a few titles to Comicsy and Lulu, but nothing at all so far, but never know

I was recently contacted by Inkbok, who run roughly on the same lines as Scripd and I am still contemplating, but will wait for the Scripd results before I decide.

Amazon is the only site that competes with the Big Three for me and I have sales through them that are my best with titles, while others seem to perform better on Kobo, Apple or Nook. 

My local sales through several, Sheffield shops, that's specialist comic shops, book shops, record shops, gift shops and even the local museums is still more lucrative than downloads, but I don't plan to retire... My Graphic Design Company still pays my mortgage and this is still only a hobby/sideline.

That's about it, I'm heading towards 2,000 sales now and I hope that this helps any would be indie comic publisher.

And here are my comics, I hope you fancy a read, there's a range of genres to choose from...
