Swing on by the Image Comics website and you’ll be greeted by the following message:
ImageComics.com is currently down so it can be safely updated, we apologize for the inconvenience.
The site will return soon with an all new design and features, stay tuned!
The website has been down since at least yesterday morning. Instead of speculating on why the site is down, I asked Jim Demonakos, PR & Marketing Coordinator for Image Comics.
It’s one of those things where we took the website down to move the entire new website on, then ran in to problems, so instead of restoring the old site, which would’ve taken some time, we decided to just keep the site down and we’ll re-launch it in about a week and a half.
I’m assuming that their old site didn’t generate much revenue or traffic because leaving it down for a week and a half would be potentially devastating otherwise.
The bright side of this is a new site for Image and some weeks ago Jim Demonakos told me that the new site will display their latest releases… finally!
I asked Jim for a preview of the new site, but the request was unfortunately shut down. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
