By Zack Smith

As more and more comic books reach a $3.99 price point, an affordable and efficient way to create revenue-generating downloadable comics has become something of a holy grail for the industry. Rantz Hoseley, editor of last year’s Eisner-winning anthology Comic Book Tattoo, has helped create what he hopes be the breakthrough application for online comics.

In his most extensive interview to date, Hoseley discusses the development of LongBox, how it will work, and its implications for the industry in this first part of a two-part talk.
