Webcomics for Tor.com

Publishers Weekly reports that Tor.com Tor.com plans to serialize two book-length webcomics

In an unusual acquisition deal, Tor.com, an experimental Macmillan website/publishing venture focused on launching original science fiction, fantasy and comics, has acquired web-only publishing rights to two full-length 192 page graphic novels and will serialize them over 6 months through the Tor.com website beginning in January. The two works are The Imitation Game, a biography of mathematician Alan Turing by comics writer and science biographer Jim Ottaviani and artist Leland Purvis; and Red Light Properties by Dan Goldman, described as a “paranormal real estate tale” by literary agent Bob Mecoy of Creative Book Services, who represents all the creators and negotiated the deal on their behalf.
