Compare and contrast: Virgin Comics goes digital two ways

Headed by flashy airline and music entrepreneur Sir Richard Branson and self-help writer Deepak Chopra—an odd couple if ever there was one—Virgin Comics launched in 2006 with a line of comics based on figures from Indian mythology and soon added two other lines, Directors Cut, which featured comics created by well known movie directors, and Maverick/Voices (the imprint was renamed), featuring comics by musicans, actors, and relatively unknown artists. The company didn't last long; in 2008 they closed their New York office and changed their name to Liquid Comics after a management buyout.
