Locked comic books...?

is there progress being made on a viable model for printing comic books standard size or otherwise? i’ve made two great books here, but with this format in particular, i’ll have to bounce between blurb and lulu. and right now lulu has a considerable headstart.

Hi Harrio.
Yes, a comic book size would be very cool to have. We gets lots of size suggestions (and many others), so we compile them and assess that list to determine what we should offer next, based on customer demand. Because we’re still so new, we can only add so many options each year. (This year we’ve added two new book sizes along with new design options, software versions, sales and marketing tools, etc.) Still, your request is on the priority list and we’re glad you’ve worked with us while you wait for your ideal comic book size.

Cheers,
Allison

thanks for the response,
hope the comic size makes the cut. the books i’ve done so far have been well received by my family and friends. they love how professional the books look and feel.
i’m planning on an illustrated book of short-stories. not really a comic this time, but something to test the look of illustration and text in blurb. so i can be prepared if the comic size does come. if not, i still plan to use blurb for my photo books.

keep up the great work.
