Dynamite Entertainment announced today that they have partnered with comiXology to roll out two of their titles via the Comics by comiXology iPhone app before the holidays.
Fans can look for Dynamite’s Terminator and the Army of Darkness Holiday Special now in the Comics by comiXology app! The free app is available, with over 700 comics, on Apple’s iTunes App Store.
“The world is evolving and along with it, the way we purchase and view entertainment, including comics. That’s something that we all are adapting to.Â But there is a â€˜wow’ part, and that is in combining the cool comics Dynamite produces with the work that comiXology is doing and usher it to the brand-new audience waiting to experience our DYNAMITE publications. While we love producing comics as monthly periodicals and collected editions, introducing new fans to comics through the iPhone and other technologies will help to complement and grow the industry.Â Working with comiXology is a great way to take existing comics and bring them to a new audience, and work to bring that audience back to the comic shops.Â So, while until now we’ve been hesitant to do anything that would adversely affect our comics retail partners, the additional features that comiXology adds that allows fans to find out more about the comics stores near them has made this the right time and a win-win for everyone.”
“We’re incredibly excited to expand Comics by comiXology with Dynamite Entertainment,” said David Steinberger, CEO of comiXology. “The amazing titles and work will really shine on the platform. Terminator and Ash are a great start to a full line of Dynamite titles on the iPhone.”
The Guided View feature of Comics by comiXology keeps the entire page of a comic intact, unlike other solutions where the page is cut into individual pictures the user browses like a photo application. The app’s retailer locator will enable customers to contact local retailers from within the app itself to order the print edition of Dynamite Entertainment Comics.
