Universal Press teams up with Lulu.com
Universal Press Syndicate has partnered with Lulu.com to launch a storefront in efforts to create a new way to produce and distribute their books. Lulu.com is a print on demand solution and this deal appears to give cartoonists and fans an opportunity to create their own books and calendars. Initially, the features that will be available include: Karen Montague-Reyes’ Clear Blue Water, J.C. Duffy’s The Fusco Brothers, and Real Life Adventures by Lance Aldrich and Gary Wise. Other features are to become available later.
This is a potentially big development for comics fans (and cartoonists themselves). I know there are many comic strips that I enjoy that aren’t being published into a yearly collection. Using Lulu, I could create my own collections for myself. I can’t wait to see how this works.
