The Bionicle Graphic Novel booklets were pretty interesting, but they had one major drawback; they were physical books that couldn't be read on a smart phone. (Well, some might not consider that a drawback, but it was certainly a limitation.) Today, that problem has been solved, since the first two Bionicle Graphic Novels are available now for digital download on Comixology.com, with hopefully more to be added in the near future. Already have all the Bionicle Graphic Novels? (Plus some copies in sealed, plastic bags.) Then you could check out their selection of Ninjago Graphic Novels!http://www.bzpower.com/story.php?ID=5928]View the full article[/url]

Honestly, this is something I would like to see more from Lego. Especially if they re-released older books as ebooks.

Nice to see the Ninjago ones are there, because I haven't seen some of them in stores. I've only been able to read #1, #2, and #5, so I'll probably download the others.

I would like to see the other Bionicle graphic novels, as well as the other books, become available like this. It would be really helpful to those who missed out on them when they first came out.

This is a step in the right direction. Me? I'll get excited when the exclusive graphic novel content (i.e. the comics that didn't come with the Lego Club magazine) and the novels are released digitally. I really need to read the latter.

These next tests require cooperation. Consequently, they have never been solved by a human.

I own all of the graphic novels and all the comics post-2004. They're in nice sealed plastic bags because I am a comic book geek.

 

I tried reading a book digitally once, and it made my eyeballs almost fall out. Besides, I prefer having a hard copy of my stuff rather than trusting it to a flimsy device.

Probably, whenever the publisher wants us to release them.

Well, Lego obviously still thinks there's a market for these things... Graphic Novel #10, perhaps?

This is in Papercutz's hands, not TLG's. Anyway, there's a big difference between creating a brand-new graphic novel and converting an existing one to a digital format. It's not entirely clear what stage in development the tenth graphic novel was in when it was cancelled, so if the actual pages weren't finished, then that would be a much more significant expense. These would have to be bringing in some pretty stellar revenue to justify releasing GN#10, and frankly even then I'm not sure TLG would be too enthusiastic about that since it wouldn't be promoting any current sets or themes.
