What is the Comichaus app? 

The elevator pitch? It’s like Netflix, for Indie Comics! 

So, I get access to all your indie comics library for a monthly subscription? 

That’s exactly it. For a monthly subscription of £3 (less than the price of most individual comics!) you get access to the whole of our library. You can also buy a yearly subscription for £30. 

How’s this different from Comixology? 

The Comichaus app is a bespoke comic book streaming app specifically created for the independent comic community, benefitting the indie creators and publishers, which can get lost in the sea of mainstream titles.

I’m not sure about indie comics. Can I have a sample? 

Of course! Here are three great examples: You can download these for free now and check them out. Parental advisory advised :)

 

 

 

 

 

They look good. Tell me more about the App! 

FREE to download, the App will be subscription and advert based, and all revenue generated from both will be split 50/50 between Comichaus and the creators/publishers. 

The Comichaus 50% will go back into the running costs and continuing promotion of the App. It will also help us continue to pay all contributors to the Comichaus monthly anthology. The Creators 50% will be shared amongst all creators based on how many of their comic books have been read. 

If a book is 'streamed' once - the creator/publisher will get one 'share' of the subscriptions/ad revenue share for that period. 

Will I be able to sample the app before I subscribe? 

Absolutely! The Comichaus App will have six 'Free' offline ready books for you to unlock and try out before you subscribe. These will change at least each quarter. We will also be letting everyone have a FREE one month trial subscription. 

Why the adverts? 

We will be making all members aware that the 'adverts' will be benefitting the creators - and will make sure they are not too frequent or spammy. Revenue generated by these adverts will go into the 'Creator Pot'!

Can I get rid of the adverts? 

Yes! There will be an option to pay £10 extra a year to have a 'GOLD Subscription' which will remove all in app video adverts. 

Where’s the money from the Kickstarter going? 

The initial Kickstarted subscription proceeds will go towards the App creation and development. Anything raised over and above this will go towards promotion of the app. The more readers - the more everyone benefits

Who’s developing the app? 

We have enlisted the services of the excellent Elixel to work with building the app with us and integrate it into the Comichaus.com site developed with UC4

What’s the app going to run on? 

Platform: iOS 9, iOS 10.x, Android 4.4 and newer

Layouts: Portrait Handset, Tablet Portrait, Tablet Landscape

What are the planned features? 

Featured, favourites, recently viewed, new releases, free and top comics listings. Browse by Title, Publisher, Creator and Characters. Leave reviews, recommend and share what you are reading on social media platforms 

I’m an indie comic book creator/publisher. How can I get involved? 

I’m glad you asked! Join the mailing list or drop us an email to info@comichaus.com

About Comichaus

Comichaus.com is a marketplace and database site where people can buy and sell their comic books. Indie creators and publishers can list for free. Whilst setting up the site we met so many amazing indie comic book creators we had an idea.....and the Comichaus Anthology was born

“If we keep referring to it as an indie 2000 AD it might become an official designation…” Starburst Magazine

"Comichaus has the potential to grow into a huge part of the UK indie scene." Pipedream Comics

“A who’s who from the small press scene…..Stunning series to get hooked on!! Comics Anonymous

Comichaus is a new monthly 44 page British Comic Book anthology. Featuring a whole bunch of indie creators from around the world AND covers by established comic book legends. Comichaus plans to continue to support and nurture indie creators

Covers so far by Glenn Fabry, John McCrea, Carlos Ezquerra, Steve Yeowell, Gary Erskine, Tess Fowler and Boo Cook - with loads more legends in the bag - have a look at www.comichaus.com/comic

Risks and challenges

We've made sure there are minimal risks involved.

Our team have run many successful Kickstarter campaigns, so have a great understanding of everything involved with delivering on time.

Work on the app has been underway, in one form or another, since January this year, and is all set to go live in August.

Not only that, but all comics offered in the rewards are either printed, or ready to be printed.

Should any issues arise, we will let you know immediately, and make alternative plans quickly and efficiently.
