    Smite Comic

    Good news: Apparently Smite comics are a thing now


    Bad news: Seems to be mobile only to promote some app.

    I don't believe this is factual. My understanding is that it's mobile only because they're working with Dark Horse to create the comic. Dark Horse mainly operate online, just like the GameOn Magazine mainly operate online. Both GameOn and the SMITE Comic had printed editions for the SWC, but that doesn't change that they're digital products.

    Reading it in my PC's browser or downloading it would not be online/digital?

    Online =/= through mobile app only

    Yes, reading it on your PC is still digital, however, what I'm saying is that it's not been created purely to promote "some app".

    I believe Dark Horse Comics always go only through an app.

    Well. Yeah, semitrue. I understand that it's through Dark Horse Comics' app, cause it's in fact created by them. Ok, logical.
    Now, for some reason it's also available through some Farrago Comics app. Random o.O This does seem like some promoting stuff. Why ONLY THAT specific app besides DHC's own app? Why not other ones aswell? And through some PC compatible comic app/website/program?

    What if I use Windows Phone? What if I don't own a smartphone at all? I do, but that's not the point.

    It's probably because Farrago is the largest comic-app distributor. It'd be like me making an eBook and not releasing it on Amazon.

    Well if you guys can easily read this I can sceenshot the comic and post it on imgur.

    The comic is free so I doubt I could get in trouble for distributing it here.


    Oh btw, I should mention that im having doubts about the comic being free.
    To me it sounds like "Its free....this time" but maybe im just paranoid.

    Be careful with this. I heavily suggest you contact them first.

    It's free, but it promotes the companies behind distribution and creation. You posting it anywhere removes the "profit" from them.
