Official Press Release
May 08, 2006 – Komikwerks unveiled today a new addition to the
ever-expanding portal for web comics. Blogwerks adds the popular
phenomena of blogging to the site, with blogs dedicated to each of its
numerous online comic strips.
“In the past few years blogging has revolutionized content on the
web,” said Director of Web Development Rob M. Worley. “This simple but
effective publishing technology gives everyone a voice. So it was only
natural that the comics creators at Komikwerks started asking for
blogs and we’re very excited to be offering them now.”
Komikwerks Blogwerks (http://www.komikwerks.com/blogwerks) are
available to all creators contributing to strips on the website. The
blogs will feature behind-the-scenes looks at the development of the
online comics. “But true to the nature of blogging, it’ll really be to
the creators to decide what they write about,” said Worley.
Robert Burke Richardson, writer of the popular “Elf Help”
(http://www.komikwerks.com/comic_title.php?ti=116) comic, has already
made good use of his Blogwerks space, with one feature breaking down
the anatomy of a page and another feature previewing upcoming strips.
Blogwerks is built on the foundation of the highly robust, but
sometimes overlooked b2evolution (http://www.b2evolution.net)
software, which Worley calls, “an outstanding work of open source
technology.” The blogs are tightly integrated with Komikwerks online
comic strip management.
Additional blogs sections are already being prepped for “Grounded
Angel” and “Universal Intergalactic Discovery Company” with many more
planned to coincide with Komikwerks’ ongoing growth.
Komikwerks is a leader in digital publishing of comics online.
