News and facts on the mobilism COMICS front... News... What's on June 2011.Well, there's new rule around Mobilism.org.:
Starting May 2011, And This is not a Rule, But an Advice:
- If you want to make a new release You have to upload your book's cover(s) to images.mobilism.org. Wheater it from your local disk or from other site (use remote option) and with size 240X320 would be best to fit.
- If you make an update to the opening post, such as adding new issue or make a new mirror please click the report button when an update is posted, it'll make us more easier to recognize and respond.
- We have two weeks left on May 2011, but we have fans for Donald Duck here, Well, looks we have to give an incentive so Double Reward for Donald Duck Comics during two weeks until June, 01-2011.
- In case you should have a comics not yet released on this site, and it's part of a series, it doesn't have to be the first issue of this series to release it. For example, if you find vol 2 of the series "Jay's incredible adventures in the most crazy section of the site..." and that series isn't yet released on the site, don't hesitate to post it. Comics-devoted members will appreciate and do their best to find the missing volumes should there exist, and comics mods will add them to your release post.A Comics Lounge: Share Your Thoughts, Comment and Enthusiasm
- To the future poster, Please add a sample page below the cover image if you can, so member can preview the contents of your released.
Dear Members and Mods, Mobilism invite You to make post Here at Comics Lounge. You can make post(s) and comment(s) on (almost) everythings about comics or authors, Disscusion any topics You want, share Your thought too.. and starting May 2011, I'll give You 10 WRZ$ each for three best comments (and will archieved as quote) to the opening weekly topic.
...FYI: meaning of symbols in release titles.Ongoing series: - O -
Released issue(s) is/are part of an ongoing series, from which all parts aren't available yet to be released. This might be because the missing issues aren't published yet, or from which the scanned versions aren't available yet. Releaser of the ongoing series is kindly asked to keep watching for the missing releases to be able to complete the series as soon as possible. Visitors might be able to find - or own - missing issues. They are invited to post those in the topic: mods will add them to the release post and will reward accordingly. In order to get the series complete as quickly as possible, OP is allowed to promise a supplementary reward for missing issues. Complete series: - C -
An example can be found here: iZombie
Note: 'Ongoing' series might be one story spread over several issues, as well as standalone plots that only share the title and/or characters from the series, and thus can be read on their own.
Release is composed from several volumes, which makes the series complete. From this series no more will be printed/published or made available to the public by the publisher. Eventually mods might give a bonus reward to those users that release a complete series. This will make releasing of complete series more attractive. Ongoing series (see above) which get completed should also be edited with the 'C' symbol. once the series is complete there might also be a bonus reward for the OP.
An example can be found here: That Hellbound Train
Speaking of rewards. I've seen some comments/replies from readers being grateful for comics posted. Remember we have a WRZ$ 'donation' system here that was build for that purpose. Some releasers might consider being more active if - beside the regular rewards - they 'feel' their posts are appreciated by regular members. Some WRZ$ may do. I don't talk for myself: I'm rich. Which brings to my mind we also should think once in a while about our mods in this section. Though they get monthly pay, it wouldn't hurt to donate them some WRZ$ from time to time... Don't forget they make everything work here and keep the system going in a wonderful way. If you don't want to reward a specific mod, a donation to the team head (Phex) will do the job. He'll reward his crew.
Where was I?Single-shot comics: - S -
Releases containing one single issue, without any intention from the author to make a second or more issues of it. Meaning it's a standalone story or revue in comics style that doesn't need any follow-up for updates. Also called 'Oneshot' issues.Note:
An example can be found here: Hellboy - Conqueror Worm
These are no rules - I think personally there's already much to much rules - but a personal item allowed to add by ebook mods. Time will show if these come in helpfull and it ain't much effort anyway. We're here for fun, aren't we?
There are different formats of Comic books released here. To view them on your WinMo device, you'll need device-specific applications:Request...
Till date Blackberry devices don't support .CBR. These(Comic Book Archive) files are nothing but compressed set of image(.JPEG .GIF .PNG) files archived. You need to rename it to .RAR file extension to open it on your BlackBerry. And the files can be extracted, since they are just a container for JPEG files. You can of course view them on 'Blackberry Picture Viewer'
For .PDF 'Documents To Go Premium' is where you go. OR you could simply convert (.CBR) to a .PDF file from any computer and that would save the hassle, and work on your device.
ComicShelf was recently released. It reads CBR/CBZ files, but is only available for webOS 2.0 and higher.
Adobe PDF Reader = *.pdf
Pictures Hub = *.jpg
LindyReader = *.cbr, *cbz
For other platforms, wait for update...
Speaking about the Alphabetic list of comics released on this site, please all take a look at the coloured titles - meaning they have missing links - and post mirrors if you can. Original releasers please renew your links whenever possible, then report in this topic so the list can be updated... Thanks! Where to find comics on the web?
We don't know how to get closest to 1500 with the numbers 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 and 9, but we do want to get to that number of comics released on this site one day. That's why there will be a double reward for comics releases - and mirrors - untill the end of April 2011. (There will still be a 100 WRZ$ reward limit).For your information...
Starting today... Happy releasing!

Comics Authors receive 150,000 euros. (Het Nieuwsblad - 13 Apr 2011)
Twenty Flemish Authors will receive some 7,500 euros each in 2011 as a supplementary grant for their work. That was announced by the Flemish Literature Fund (VLF). The VLF allows these rewards because of the high quality of the comics works and the tendency that more and more Flemish albums get an English translation.
Amongst these authors are new talents like Floris De Smedt, but also experienced artists such as Marc Legendre (Biebel of Waterland and strips) and Steven Dupré (known from the Sara and Robin series).
-------------------------------------------------------------- Elseworlds imprint.Elseworlds is the publication imprint for a group of comic books produced by DC Comics that take place outside the company's canon. According to its tagline: "In Elseworlds, heroes are taken from their usual settings and put into strange times and places — some that have existed, and others that can't, couldn't or shouldn't exist. The result is stories that make characters who are as familiar as yesterday seem as fresh as tomorrow." Unlike its Marvel Comics counterpart What If...?, which bases its stories on a single point of divergence from the regular continuity, most Elseworlds stories instead take place in entirely self-contained continuities whose only connection to the canon DC continuity are the presence of familiar DC characters
The first Elseworlds title was Batman: Gotham by Gaslight (1989), by Brian Augustyn and Mike Mignola and edited by Mark Waid, which featured a Victorian Age version of the superhero Batman hunting Jack the Ripper, who had come to Gotham City. This title was not originally published as an Elseworlds comic, but its success led to the Elseworlds concept and this title was retroactively declared the first Elseworlds. The first book to feature the Elseworlds logo was Batman: Holy Terror.
-------------------------------------------------------------- B.P.R.D.The Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense (the B.P.R.D. or BPRD) is a fictional organization in the comic book work of Mike Mignola, charged with protecting America and the world from the occult, paranormal and supernatural. It maintains the services of several supernatural persons, including Hellboy. The B.P.R.D. originally appeared in the Hellboy comics but has also been featured in many stories under the B.P.R.D. title.
