Alluhwi Comics, a Caribbean distributor of Caribbean-made comic books, just launched the open beta for their new Alluhwi Comics app on the Google Play Store. The app, which is slated to be released on iOS at a later date, is subscription based and will allow user to buy, read and rate comics from Caribbean comics creators. The open beta is free to use. Users are required to sign up with their email address or Google or Facebook account.
Developed by Bolt from the Blue Entertainment, it is described as “the Caribbean’s first mobile platform for comics”, the app was created with the purpose of making Caribbean-made comics “accessible and affordable”, to “provide compensation options for regional creators through incremental revenue, and later licensing and merchandising” and further Caribbean representation in comics.
