My experience with Comixology Submit

TLDR – it was fast and easy and is now online.

When I first decided to send my comics through Comixology’s indie “Submit” channel, I wasn’t sure if the service was still live. The website looked dated, and there weren’t any blog posts written in the last 1-2 years about the program. Luckily the system is still active, and my comic was even processed faster than I expected.

To fill the void, here’s a short timeline of how my submission went through in 2017:

  • Submit date: 13 September 2017
  • Email notification of acceptance: 23 September 2017
  • Online publication date: 8 November 2017

That was it. No extra review or Q&A, and it took just under two months. The comic is now on Comixology with Guided View.

A note about updating your information: after hitting submit, there is no way to edit any of the information about the work or the author, short of emailing them about it. The only thing I can edit right now is my “publisher information.”

Update: I received my “Comixology Submit payment report for November 2017” via email on 29 December 2017. Attached was a spreadsheet of sales/profits made.
