For a long time Dark Horse Comics forged ahead on its own to deliver digital comics to readers using its own digital comics delivery system. Today, the publisher has announced it is moving its books to comiXology.
“We are very excited to announce that we have reached an agreement which brings the Dark Horse catalogue found in the Kindle Store to the comiXology platform,” remarked President and Publisher of Dark Horse Comics Mike Richardson. “For the first time, hundreds of Dark Horse graphic novels will be available to comiXology’s devoted readers. The technology is stellar and we are pleased that our books will be showcased flawlessly.”
“I’ve been a fan of Dark Horse since I was a kid – and have continued to be so throughout their rich history – so this is an important addition to comiXology not only for me personally, but for our customers,” said comiXology co-founder and CEO David Steinberger. “ComiXology fans have requested Dark Horse from day one and now they’ll get their wish by being able to read titles like Hellboy, Sin City, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Goon right now on comiXology, in terrific HD and in Guided View!”
Before you get too excited about ditching your Dark Horse Comics digital comic reader, take note that this agreement only covers Dark Horse “collections, graphic novels, and manga” titles and does not include single issues at this time.
There is no wait time on when the collections will arrive on comiXology as over 800 volumes landed this morning on the digital comics service.
