• Terry Moore’s Abstract Studios has joined Diamond Comic Distributors’ digital program. A downloadable edition of Rachel Rising #11, whose physical copy is scheduled to ship to stores today, is available at the same time. Purchasers of the physical copy for $3.99 can purchase a download code for 99¢ more or can opt to forego the physical copy and just get the digital edition for $3.99. Digital back issues of the series will be available for 99¢ for #1 and $1.99 for #2-10. Work is underway to offer Moore’s other series, Strangers in Paradise and Echo, digitally in the near future.
