The folks at Graphic Policy agree with me, and yesterday they posted s simple graphic to show just how much creators would gain:
The above graphic shows that creators are going to gain an addition 12 cents on the dollar, and that is probably a pessimistic estimate. GP is assuming that Amazon will deduct credit card charges before splitting revenue, but based on what we have seen in the Kindle Store and in Audible it is more likely that Amazon will cover the payment processing fees themselves.
But even if GP is right, this change is still a significant boost in potential income. No matter how anyone attempts to spin it, the comic industry, and the creators, make out better with this change.
