Marvel and ComiXology dropped word this morning that the comic book publisher has decided to release all single issue English-language comics exclusively through ComiXology.

“As the industry leader, Marvel is committed to growing the comics market through digital innovation—and bolstering our existing partnership with comiXology continues that,” explained Peter Phillips, SVP & General Manager, Marvel Digital Media. “This agreement is a huge win for current and future fans of the Avengers, X-Men, Spider-Man and Marvel’s entire library of exciting characters.”

The Marvel App (powered by ComiXology) continues to be a top grossing app in the iTunes stores, and now Marvel fans can also buy single issues through comiXology’s Digital Storefront for brick and mortar retailers.

“We’re extremely proud that Marvel has chosen comiXology as its partner,” said David Steinberger, CEO of comiXology. “Our expanded relationship will foster increased innovation and accelerate plans for more points of distribution and reading. I’m more than thrilled.”
