Oz in the News 9.10.11

IDW brings graphic novels to the iBook store  The epub format is entirely different from app development. It’s much more rigid and allows for little specialized navigation. IDW has released epub-formatted books before, we have over 200 single-issue books in the Amazon Kindle store. Those are panel-by-panel books, because the same file has to work on a Kindle or inside Kindle apps on other devices. It works fine but isn’t as perfect as using an app. The reason for the big push now is that Apple recently introduced new epub formatting tricks specific to iBooks. That has led to the great looking full-page approach we’ve developed. We’ll offer the entire range of our brands in iBooks. The variety also includes Eric Shanower’s Oz series and Bloom County Library.

Emilie’s set for a return to Oz!  SOUTH Tyneside Dorothy Emilie Fleming is looking forward to heading down the yellow brick road once again this weekend.  The talented 20-year-old is joining her fellow Over the Rainbow stars to raise cash for a children’s hospice in Hinckley, Leicestershire.  “We’re putting our Dorothy dresses on for the show and we’ve all grown, so that should be fun to see how they look.  “We’ve also been racking our brains to remember the choreography – it’s been hilarious.”
