COMIC ROCKET TEAMS UP WITH COMICFURY TO INDEX OVER 9000 WEBCOMICS
Comic Rocket will index comics hosted on ComicFury


Portland, OR (July 30th, 2012) -- Comic Rocket, the web's best place to find, follow and read webcomics, has partnered with webcomics host ComicFury to increase its listings dramatically. Comic Rocket users will now have an impressively large list of webcomics at their fingertips. The two companies have agreed for Comic Rocket to post continuous updates from ComicFury's listings of 6,276 online comics adding on to its own index of 2,777. The influx of new works puts Comic Rocket's total of indexed strips at 9,053 and moves the company closer towards becoming the ultimate way to read and bookmark webcomics.

"This agreement makes perfect sense for both companies," said Comic Rocket's CEO Tim Shields. "We get to more than triple our listings and the webcomics hosted on ComicFury get traffic and attention from our rapidly-growing reader base."

ComicFury offers free web space to creators to post their work as well as easy-to-use tools to help maintain and display their comics. Additionally, ComicFury offers forums where users can congregate and help each other. Creators can concentrate on the important parts of making their comics instead of the technical details. ComicFury hosts noted webcomics including Supermassive Black Hole A*, Aethernaut, Mushroom Go, and The Other Grey Meat.

The two companies look forward to working together. ComicFury's creators will benefit from the increase to their readership giving wider exposure to their comics. Comic Rocket will offer access to the entire archives of all comics on ComicFury as well as give strong recommendations that will help guide readers directly to comics that are sure to interest them. Comic Rocket's high engagement levels, averaging at over 13 minutes per session, will carry over to ComicFury as users that are very likely to stay and read.

That sounds pretty good. Will Comic Rocket automatically catch the banners, or we'll still have to e-mail them?
Still looking forward to seeing Comic Rocket have a Subscription RSS feature like the one here at ComicFury, that says "Hey this comic updated".

They asked me if I wanted to contribute a quote to the press release. Then they didn't use it!

"When I met Jamey, the first thing I noticed was his astonishing hazel-colored eyes. How could you not get lost in them? I immediately agreed to his offer, though I admit I wasn't really listening at the time. Then he made me program an API. He's so gorgeous."

This is cool news. I wonder if it will detract from the subscription service that is already offered here on ComicFury? (Just curious to see how things will pan out). ComicRocket is pretty cool though. I 'be been using it to keep track of all the webcomics I read. Here's to possibilities :)

I meant to like that post :c but then I disliked it.

I didn't think you should be left pondering what I meant by both liking and disliking a post so I thought I'd just point it out :U

This is pretty boss. I met one of Comic Rocket's reps at ECCC '12, and the guy was total class. I think this is a great thing for ComicFury!

Shame about Kyo's quote not getting used, though.

Cool, cool. The interface for reading looks nice. Would be interesting to see how many new banners he gets today.

And this shall be our manifesto:

To protect the world from devastation,
To unite all people within our nation,
To denounce the evil of truth and love,
To extend our reach to the stars above.


The streets shall flow with the blood of non-believers.

Where do we go to collect our uniforms, bishie hair and roses?
