The New York Times wrote about a new digital comic book service called Graphite. Available on the App Store and Google Play, the goal of the service is to offer digital comics from a variety of services, including independent creators and make it all free. On top of that, the service is based on artificial intelligence, so it will suggest content to readers based on their selections. While the content will include ads, an ad-free service will be available for $4.99 in U.S. funds. According to Michael Eng, Graphite’s Chief Executive: “We have so much premium content and brands and franchises that the public recognizes and loves that there’s no lack of things in here that audiences are not already familiar with.”
