Wowio Buys Webcomics Community DrunkDuck

Electronic book store WOWIO has followed up its purchase last week of comics social networking site WEvolt by buying up another webcomics community, DrunkDuck, which lets its 95,000 members post comics they have created and connect with fans. WOWIO is buying the site from Platinum Studios, which purchased it in September 2006.

WOWIO, which runs a free, ad-supported online eBook store (users pay to download PDF copies, not to read online), says DrunkDuck will expand its library of content “available for viewing.” Finanical terms weren’t released, but the deal size is likely small. WOWIO has raised about $2.7 million in funding. Some more details here.
