Graphic.ly secures another $3m. Real life comic book heroes?

I’m a big fan of the concept of Graphic.ly. It’s where you go to find online comics and read them in a screen friendly way. I’ve used their app on my touchscreen laptop. I think their Chrome Extension is a successful trail blazer (and an illustration of just how powerful the future web will be). […]
