News Icarus Shares Comic AG Issue on BitTorrent for Free
posted on 2007-12-24 11:34 EST
The adult manga firm Icarus Publishing has put a free test issue of its Comic AG anthology on the BitTorrent peer-to-peer file-sharing network. The 55-megabyte PDF file of Comic AG Digital's "test issue 00" contains installments from six explicit, adult manga titles and more than 100 pages.
Icarus has experimented with putting uncensored previews for certain titles on BitTorrent before, but not an entire standalone issue of Comic AG. BitTorrent lessens the strain on publishers' servers and network connections by spreading the workload among the different users; the same people who are downloading a file are simultaneously uploading it as they complete each fragment of it.
