PRESS RELEASE –
ComicBlitz, the “All You Can Eat” subscription service, announce a partnership with IDW Publishing, as a digital distributor for the premier comics publisher. Hundreds of comics and graphic novels will be rolling out over the next few months on the platform, starting today with over 125 issues of titles such as Transformers, GI Joe, Star Trek, My Little Pony, Dungeons & Dragons, Locke & Key, The Crow, Angel, Judge Dredd and more. Upcoming titles include 30 Days of Night, Jem and The Holograms, Angry Birds, Skylanders, Samurai Jack, The Maxx, Danger Girl, and even more from the initial wave of titles.
“Partnering with ComicBlitz to make our extensive backlist of titles available to a wider audience is an exciting next step in IDW’s publishing growth,” says IDW Publishing President and COO, Greg Goldstein. “ComicBlitz’s business model is a smart, easy way to discover your new favorite comic and we hope that their subscribers will enjoy what we have to offer.”
“We are proud to have IDW as a partner, and to offer their widely accessible line of books to our readers,” says ComicBlitz co-founder and CEO, Jordan Plosky. “IDW’s diverse line of books are some of the easiest entry points for new readers into the world of comics. We are extremely excited to share them with our readers.”
In conjunction with the release of that content, ComicBlitz is now providing more value than ever for those who sign up. For a limited time, ComicBlitz is lowering the price of their Unlimited Plan from $9.99 to $7.99 per month. For the price of 2 comics, users now have unlimited access to over 4,500 comics and graphic novels at their fingertips.
In addition, ComicBlitz has added an all-new Basic Plan, a low cost entry point for new users! For the price of one new comic, at just $3.99/mo, users have unlimited access to any ten comics of their choosing, as well as access to features like offline reading, bookshelf usage, rating, reviewing, and social media sharing.
“We feel that money should never be the reason for someone not being able to enjoy comics. We love the medium of comics, and want to be able to share it with anyone interested”, says CEO Jordan Plosky. “By creating different price points, we can appeal to a larger audience, and their needs.”
