The Devastating Loss of Graphicly

GraphiclyBack in May, the digital distributor Graphicly announced they were shutting down. They had been around for four years and in that time were heavily used as a means of self-publishing–especially for the comics community, hosting thousands of digital comic books on their website. To make matters worse, not only was the main site to be taken down after months of losing money hand over fist, but anyone who used Graphicly’s services to make their publications available on Amazon, iTunes, Barnes & Noble, and Google Play, were going to have their books pulled from every digital storefront.

In a solemn email, Graphicly gave one month’s notice to thousands of creators to log in and download all of their work they had put up. Once that month was up, everything was gone and replaced with a goodbye note.

Unfortunately, we used Graphicly for all of our online distribution. Now, we don’t have a single comic book in the digital marketplace, and when everyone says print is dead, your online presence is basically all you have.


At the moment, we’re trying to regroup and get ourselves back online, rising from the ashes like Jean Grey has so many times before us. So bear with us and stay tuned. We’re plugging away and we’ll be back online shortly.
