Dark Horse Comics has announced it will launch its own digital comics app in 2011 for the iPad and iPhone so fans of the comic company can download and read digital comics.  Dark Horse caused a stir a month or so ago when it announced its single issue titles would sell for $1.49 per issue, instead of the more common $1.99 per issue.

And if you don’t have an iPad? Readers can head over to Digital.DarkHorse.com and read digital comics on any computer connected to the Intardwebz.  This is very similar to what ComiXology, Marvel, and DC already do with their online comic reading sites.

New titles and reprinted material will be appearing on a weekly basis, and in February expect to see select issues of your favorite comics appearing online the same time they’re released in stores! It’s that easy!

What might those titles be?  Take the jump for the January launch list.

    I am slowly going through the Knights of the Old republic trades. Even though I don’t have an I-Pad like Stephen (Imagine Matthews’ Stephen voice) I still enjoy the digital medium.
