"Just like comics have traditionally generated revenue both as single issues and trades, our model brings in money from both digital serialization and print collections. Each is only part of the pie, and we need both in order for the book to be sustainable over the long haul. In large part, too, I think those are often serving different readerships. There is a type of reader who likes the immediacy and low price point of digital, but others really prefer to have the book up on the shelf, and the ease a print edition." — chrisroberson”Digital allows us to build an audience and word of mouth for the eventual print collections. Also, as a creator, I want to see a physical print edition of the work so anything I do is going to be geared towards that eventually.” — dennisculverTwo snippets, on the importance of both the digital and trade paperback platforms for Edison Rex, from part of a larger interview with the two creators. This Saturday is the deadline to get your orders in for Edison Rex, Vol. 2: Heir Apparent (idwcomics).

It doesn’t show too much in the issue itself because we faded the artwork to imply a flashback effect, but I was shamelessly cribbing from Edward Hopper for this scene in Edison Rex 11. Only steal from the best, I say!

Edison Rex 12 is available now on Comixology
http://www.comixology.com/Edison-Rex-12/digital-comic/52683

Has Edison Rex finally managed to convince everyone that he’s a hero now, and not the villain he used to be? And will a new generation of heroes accept him as one of their own?

This issue is a big deal for Chris and me. Along with Amelia Cole also out today we’re the first Monkeybrain books to hit the 12th issue. Not only is it an important milestone for us but it wraps up what will be the second print collection of the book which will be available in the spring from IDW.

Chris and I have put a lot of work into the overall Edison Rex story and if you’ve been reading the issues as they come out I invite you to take the time to reread all 12 issues (including the Rexfiles!) together. Each issue a satisfying read that can stand on it’s own but when linked together starts to create a much larger picture. We’ve planted a lot of seeds that are starting to bear more and more fruit as the book continues. My favorite comics are ones that reward me for rereading them all together and it’s our hope you’ll find that with our book.

Finally, if you’re enjoying our book then please help us spread the word about it. Our goal is to get Rex into the hands of everyone that would enjoy it. If you know someone that isn’t happy with the current state of the super hero genre then give them our book. We’re offering a kind of story that is not being told right now by the Big Two. We’re really proud of the work.

Thanks so much for supporting our book!

Greg McElhatton has nice things to say about Edison Rex #12 in his review on Comic Book Resources. Things like…
"Edison Rex" #12 is another strong installment from a consistently great series. Those who prefer to wait for print can pick up the collection of #1-6 already, with a second volume containing #7-12 scheduled for next spring. Personally, though, I wouldn’t wait. At 99 cents a pop, you’re getting a great deal here and a lot of the fun is how well Roberson and Culver are using the serial format to build up the tension and suspense. If you aren’t reading "Edison Rex" yet, at just a dollar, maybe it’s time you gave it a try yourself.
